Anyone in the world of wedding photography will recognize the name Gary Fong. While he no longer photographs weddings, he is still a big part of our industry, and he just had his own wedding last week. Of course his wedding party and guests were the who's who of wedding photography, and he will probably have the most amazing array of wedding photographs on the planet. His wedding was beautiful all around and worth checking out. There are pics and a video clip on his blog. After attending so many weddings in his career, it is especially touching to see how he reacts when he sees Melissa walking up the aisle, and the setup for the ceremony is really cool.

If anyone picks up a copy of the magazine "I Do" for Tennessee Brides then you can check out their write up on one of my 2006 couples, Mandy & Johnathan Sitzlar.

Mandy's parents own Butterfly Gap, and she helps run the place with her sister Laura. It's really a gorgeous venue, and their whole family will go out of their way to make your wedding perfect. I highly recommend checking them out for a wedding, event, or just a romantic weekend get away. Marcus and I have spent the night in one of their guesthouses before, and it was very relaxing.

Also, I just received a great review in Clarksville's The Leaf Chronicle. After you check out the review, read more of Melissa's blog. She obviously has great taste since she declared my work officially hot. However, I have to say that it's my couples who are truly hot, and they make my job so much easier.

From time to time, I'm asked if I went to school for photography. I've always been creative and loved art class in high school, but I, like many great photographers, didn't study photography in college. I considered it, but the classes being offered at that time were still film oriented topics like darkroom technique. If they had offered photoshop classes or digital workflow then it would have made more sense.

Althought I didn't take college classes for it, I wouldn't say that I'm exactly self-taught either. I use all sorts of educational resources (magazines, books, forums, DVDs, tutorials), and in that way I am constantly learning from some of the best photographers around.

This week I will be attending a workshop by Kevin Kramer and David Beckstead (who was named one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by Photo Magazine this year). The workshop will cover a growing trend in the wedding industry, fashion photography. I will be watching two amazing photographers work on location and will have my own opportunities to practice what I've learned. When I return home, the fashion style will be another part of my shooting repertoire.

I am leaving tomorrow and will return to work June 25. I don't expect to have access to email while traveling so all calls and emails will be returned next week. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
