More of Kelly and Tamer's wedding!

As promised here are a few more images from Kelly and Tamer's wedding from this past weekend.

Their reception was held at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY. Lemme just say that this place is amazing. Right on the Hudson River with beautiful view of the Mid-Hudson bridge. The service staff was outstanding and catered to the needs of not only the bride and groom but the vendors as well!

Jean and Josh's Wedding Slideshow!

Jean Cann of Wishimay Photography asked me a couple of months ago to shoot her wedding for her. I was floored when she asked me. How can I possibly refuse THE photographer that got me interested in wedding photography? I quickly said yes and the day couldn't come soon enough. I didn't get to meet the Groom, Josh, until the day of, but had heard such great things about him. Apart from the tough exterior, he's a real teddy bear of a guy and is so very sweet to Jean.

The day started out at the Holiday Inn Express in Poughkeepsie, from there we traveled to the ceremony site, The Innisfree Garden. What an awesome place! We did have a bit of a scare as it started to rain just after we finished the bridals and formals, but sun decided to show up just in time for the ceremony.

The reception was held at the The Italian Center. What a cool venue! Check out their website by clicking on the link. I just have to say... the food there is AMAZING! Music was by John Martin of Superior Sounds.

Anyhow, enough rambling... the pictures should do the talking! The full size slideshow can be seen at

Preparing for Baby begins!

Audrey had her baby shower this past weekend, and after conducting an inventory of all the wonderful presents we received, we suddenly came to realize that... ohmahgosh! Baby will be here in month and we haven't prepared for anything. So Monday night while I was driving home from my day job, Audrey calls me and says... we need to clean house... specifically, the 3rd bedroom which we have been using as a walk in closet since 2002. (I swear my wife is next Imelda Marcos with all her shoes!)

Anyhoo... now that the room is somewhat decent, we are going shopping for a crib and stroller today. I never realized how much of a pain in the rear this is. The options are endless, to make matters worse, crib mattresses are not created equal, so depending on the crib, the mattress you purchase may or may not fit... furthermore, too soft of a mattress, and baby can suffocate when she rolls over, too stiff and she can roll to either side and hit her head on the railings. My head hurts.... Don't even get me started on strollers!

Don't get me wrong, I am excited to be a new father, I just never thought it would be this complicated!

Marc's Navy bootcamp graduation

My brother Marc graduated from Navy bootcamp today. I flew into Chicago Thursday morning and met the rest of my Family as we reunited to celebrated my brothers completion of bootcamp at the Naval Training Center in Great Lakes, Il. Being a Navy veteran myself, I was so proud to see my baby brother standing tall and proud in his service dress blues!

Here are some pics from today...
