Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Christmas is definitely our favorite holiday...we buy each other too much, make cookies, eat too much candy and spend tons of time with our family. I hope that everyone is enjoying this season as much as we are. Jessica is off school for 2 weeks, my sisters are home and there's nothing to do for a few days. I hope that everyone is spending time with family and friends this week and remembering what's truly important in life.

Jess and I won't be working (or blogging) much for the next week...we're taking it easy together. So have a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a Happy Holidays! We're grateful for everyone who reads this and supports us and we can't wait for the upcoming year.

This past year has been so amazing for me and Jessica; and one of the big reasons are the 19 amazing couples who have allowed us to be a part of their lives. We certainly wouldn't be where we are today without their support and their trust in us. We've put together a recap slideshow with some of our favorite images from each of their weddings.

I realize I haven't blogged the last two weddings yet...I'm waiting for our new blog which should be ready by the end of the year.

Please click here to be taken to the slideshow.

Where have I been?

I apologize for the lack of posting lately...I know that some of you hang on my every word (which if that's actually true than I feel special.) But seriously I've been quite busy lately. We've had two weddings the last two weekends, I've been out hunting and we spent Thanksgiving week with our family. I'm also having a brand new blog that's being built by the great people at Flosites and should hopefully be done very soon.

I've got two amazing weddings to blog about but I just might wait and save those for the new blog. Sorry. I've got quite a few interesting topics that I want to explore in my next few posts and I definitely want some comments and feedback from everyone who reads this.

Until then here's a few pictures of our ridiculously cute nephews from last week...

Jessica is playing Honey Bee Tree with Taylor.

Nothing like decorating Christmas cookies.

We're leaving, but you can follow us!

We're leaving tomorrow morning to photograph a great wedding in Sunriver, Oregon and we couldn't be more excited. We'll be gone for the weekend but of course I'll have pictures when we get back. I won't be updating the blog over the weekend but you can follow us either on Facebook (if we're friends) or through Twitter. I'm just trying Twitter so I'll do my best to keep it updated; make sure to check those both out if you're interested.

Our new blog is right around the corner and it's going to have some cool features (like facebook and twitter integration) so I'm anxious for everyone to try those out and see if it's worthwhile. I have a few ideas as to how I'll make them useful and worth your time so make sure to check back.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll update soon!

Go out and buy 1 or 2 or 5 of these right now!

Two weekends ago our hot water heater went out and produced a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide in our home. Luckily we were gone so nothing happened to us. I had a major issue with XCEL Energy which I'll talk more about later but the moral of the story is go out and spend some money on carbon monoxide detectors for your home. Put one near your gas appliances and definitely in your bedroom. It's a colorless, odorless gas that can kill you. As the XCEL worker told me "you don't want to wake up dead."

Seriously though if you don't have them in your home please make it a priority to go out and buy a few of them.

Julia and Greg are married!

Jessica and I were lucky enough to travel to Omaha for Julia and Greg's amazing wedding. They had it at the Lauritzen Botanical Gardens and everything was just perfect. We had never met Julia and Greg until their wedding day but that didn't make the slightest difference because they were so inviting and such genuine people. They had a gift basket waiting for us at the hotel and we were invited to the day after BBQ at Julia's dads house. We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and get to know Julia and Greg; they are incredibly conscious people and they made sure everyone was comfortable and taken care of. Here's a few of our favorites...

Julia looked great.

Jessica took this amazing ring shot.

Jess got this great image of Julia getting ready.

I love this picture of Julia's sister looking back at her before she went down the aisle.

The guys rings are always difficult to put on...I'm not sure why.

They looked great together.

They had a pretty big bridal party but I think we got some interesting, casual shots.

I love this dancing shot.

I have to say a huge thanks to my friend Jon for introducing us to Julia and Greg.
