On my way






I'm in Chicago on my way to the Alive Festival in Ohio and I am so excited! I've never been to a big music festival like this and I wish I could stay the whole week but unfortunately I can only stay for one day. My friend Crystal that I met when through Missy Carl invited me out there and I just can't wait to get there. I LOVE the Christian music industry and if I wasn't doing wedding photography I would definitely be involved in that industry.

Mark,

My wife was involved in young life with Ryan Wilkins. She shot the cover of his very first homeade cd their name was Floyd Dallas. Anyway, it jump started our career in photography cause a couple years later we shot the wedding of the guitar player. Anyway, great guy.

Also, Thirst Relief International is going to have a very strong presence at the Alive Festival and dj's video that he produced for Thirst will be played right before Mercy Me and Relient K go on mainstage. Pretty cool.

Sarah Barlow said...

DJ you are part of the music industry!! You're the BG's publicist! Remember??? lol!!
Christian festivals seriously ROCK!!
That's really awesome about the Thirst Relief video being shown!!! WOW!!

Jasmine said...

Wow, it's totally awesome that the Thirst Relief video will be playing and DJ will be there watching his efforts plant seeds in many hearts! Way to go, DJ :)

Hey Deej-

Make sure you don't wear good shoes there cause it gets kind of muddy if it rains.

Take lots of pictures... you should ask Crystal to get you a back stage pass so you can shoot stuff for Kathy. I will email Crystal now and see if she can.

Have fun!!!

I can't believe I logged on and you are talking about Christian music festivals. I just got word that my friends "Kids in the Way" will be playing "Inside Out Soul Fest" along with lots of other great bands. My friends are Maeve and you can find their site on my blog, which I would love for you to all check out too. I am dropping plugs all over the place:) to sum it up... Come on out to NH for the Soul Fest and check out my blog. I was inspired by all of you to start one. Thank you, and goodnight...

Dude!! Thats totally sweet! I'm excited for you DJ =) You're awesome at band photography too... I can totally see you doing that if weddings ever become boring or something ;)
