Stacey and Nigel’s engagement

I first met Stacey and Nigel on the morning of their engagement session, and after fifteen minutes, I felt like we were all old friends. They are freaking awesome.  Fun to photograph, and pretty much down for whatever sillyness I threw at them (which is always a plus!).

Thanks for the good times, y’all. Can’t wait to shoot the gorgeousness that will be your wedding this fall!

Wedding Pricing Guide

If you’re a bride (or groom) that’s considering hiring me to document your wedding day, and you’ve already received a copy of my wedding pricing guide, listen up: I will be releasing revised packages and rates on July 1, 2009.

If you’d like to take advantage of the rates that you currently have in front of you, you need to do so no later than June 30th.  A signed contract and your retainer are due at the time of booking.

If you’ve already booked your date, no worries!

William

William is my new nephew. He arrived in this world on June 6th.  I finally had a little down time this past weekend, so Jessica and I rolled out to Houston to formally meet little Will.

World, meet William.

William, this is the world.  It can be stinky and cold and not so fun sometimes. But generally it’s a pretty neat place. I’m glad you made it!  When you get old enough to eat solid foods, your Aunt Jessica and I will take you to Chuy’s. And there you will learn what Tex Mex is all about.

The Least Appropriate Wedding Songs

I was parked sitting in traffic on I-35 today, which is normally not a good thing. However, I managed to catch NPR’s story on The Least Appropriate Wedding Songs. Too funny! You should give it a listen.

And just a hint to the grooms out there: never serenade your new bride with Sinatra’s “The Lady is a Tramp”. It’s just a bad idea.

60 Years of Marriage

One of my favorite things about my morning commute is that I get a chance to listen to Morning Edition on NPR.  (The other favorite thing is sipping on a cup of freshly brewed coffee).  Morning Edition just makes me feel a little smarter. You should listen too.

Anyway, today’s StoryCorps segment — I think it airs regularly on Fridays — I found especially enlightening, enriching, and moving, and I wanted to share it here on the ol’ blog.  Give this a listen: Laughter is Love: 60 Years of Marriage.  This is the story of Marcia and Seymour Gottlieb in their own words.

“The longer I know her, the more I appreciate her, ’cause she’s my pal. She’s my best friend — not the best cook in the world, but she makes reservations very well.”

It’s hysterical, yet poignant (given that Seymour suffers from Alzheimer’s).  Yes, I teared up a little bit, the sentimental fool that I am.  I hope you enjoy it.

leave a message at the beep…

If you were trying to reach me by e-mail or phone for the past week, you couldn’t.

Or rather, you could. I just didn’t get it. Or have a chance to reply. Until today..

My lovely wife and I have been on vacation for the last seven days (and celebrating our two year anniversary to boot), and the computers and phones and fax machines and pagers (pagers?) at James Dvorscak Photography were all in the off mode for the week.  I’m currently wading through my e-mails and phone messages, so if I haven’t gotten back to you yet, rest assured I will!

Oh, and more pictures from the epic vacation are coming. I promise.

Mindy and Taylor’s engagement session

If I could use only one word to sum up Mindy and Taylor, it would be chemistry.  Wow.  If I could distill just a little bit of that chemistry, bottle it, and distribute it to those that need it, the world would be a much better place.  And I’d be filthy stinking rich.

These two met at a karaoke bar outing (with mutual friends). And after hanging out with them for an hour or two, it was apparent to me how this totally fits their personalities.  What an awesome couple!  They were pretty much down for whatever I threw at them, including waking up at the crack of dawn on a weekend (mental note: standing in the middle of South Congress is generally not such a good idea).

Did I mention they’re getting married in Cape Cod this fall? How gorgeous is that going to be?

Congrats, y’all! And thanks for the good times!
