We photographers must periodically do what we call “personal work” in order to keep our creative juices flowing. I am in Portland, Oregon with my son Max for a college visit today. I went out for a walk along the river this morning with my camera, one lens, and no agenda. I enjoyed the quiet time.

So I am working this week as the official photographer for TechCrunch50, a very cool gathering of high-tech entrepreneurs and the real glitterati of the online world. But what made for some excellent photographic opportunities was when the real Hollywood types made some appearances.
Ashton Kutcher launched a new venture called “The Blah Girls”, and as if that didn’t create enough of a stir, he brought along his gorgeous (and I mean gorgeous) wife, Demi Moore. And later in the evening, Myspace.com hosted a big soiree in San Francisco and they hired Samantha Ronson to be their DJ. If you don’t know who she is, search on Google for “Sam Ronson” and “Lindsay Lohan”.
Halie and her delightful family celebrated her bat mitzvah today in a most uncommon way. The family are affiliated with the local Chabad (an orthodox, family-oriented Jewish organization), so they elected to do Halie’s bat mitzvah on a Sunday to get around some of the restrictions of the Shabbat (the sabbath). So the family set up shop in the local Veterans’ Hall, and had a wonderful day there. I was honored to be asked to preserve these memories for them.
(or as they’re known to their friends and family, “Adison”)
I had the privilege to go all the way to Atlanta, Georgia this weekend to photograph the wedding of two awesome kids, Alison and Adam. They were guests at Kristy and Holt’s wedding up in Michigan City, Indiana (which I photographed a few months ago) and apparently they liked what I did. =)
It was a beautiful summer day in Atlanta, and there was a full complement of parents, siblings, lots of family and close friends in attendance. Even a few folks from California (besides me!). Alison was stunning in a really magnificent gown, and Adam totally “lost it” when he saw her for the first time in it (that’s always a great photographic moment). I entertained the assembled with one of my exclusive “live slideshows”, which is always a crowd favorite. So, despite having seen all these photos live at the reception, I thought I’d take a few dozen of my favorites and toss ’em up here for everybody to enjoy. Thanks, kids, and have a wonderful adventure in the land of smiles!
