My buddy Mark Fiore throws the BEST parties! tonight he had a Ninja party and there were over 40 Ninja's and Geisha's there and a few cowboys too!

In the mix there was one of my brides from last summer, one of my former girlfriends, my first assistant, my first software developer, and some other dear friends! See if you can guess who is who from the slideshow! :)

Tonight Show

What a random crazy day! I woke up today at 8am and I was supposed to have left for LA at 6am so that I could get my Visa application turned in for a trip to Brazil that I leave for in 10 days but anyway....I'm just heading out the door and Amy Nave calls me and invites to go to the Tonight Show with Gary, Melissa and Jessica and some of their friends so I was like sweet!

I jammed down to LA and just as I'm getting my Visa taken care of I run into Mike Colon turning in his application totally last minute as well! Haha! So we call and Gary gets another ticket and we all end up at the Tonight show together and we got to see J. Lo! Holy Hot! was wild and I got to ride in Fong's new Porsche Cayman Rocket Car and I nearly had a heart attack! That thing shouldn't be legal.

Thanks again you guys!!!

I leave Saturday for a week in Texas at the PPA show and I'm so excited to see some of you there!!!

Big White - Big Fun

Gary Fong invited a bunch of us up to one of his killer places in Canada and this place is unreal! Here's a picture of his Raven Creek Estate and this is the one that Me, Amy Nave, Mike and Julie Colon, and David and Kassandra Beckstead are staying at!

There are more pictures of this amazing place here so be sure to have a look! It's incredible! Click here!

The picture of Amy (above) is earlier today when I locked her outside by the hot tub! She thought it was funny so I let her stay out there awhile... :)

Happy New Year!

I've never felt more in love and more fulfilled with my "work" than I have this past week...and I know the words love and work seldom appear in the same sentence and I don't want anyone to freak out and think that I'm some workaholic and that I'm consumed with what I do because I'm really not....I am consumed with why I do it though.

I do what I do because God has given me these gifts and I feel that through working hard I honor Him. There are times when I'm lame and I gripe about stuff that I don't enjoy but this last week, even though it was busy and I had to miss Christmas with my family and shoot a couple weddings with a long day of traveling in-between, I felt more blessed and more inspired to work harder than ever before.

The wedding that JT Pals, Ken Krehbiel, and I shot last night was for the twin sister of a wedding that Tim and I shot in Hawaii earlier this year and the word beautiful doesn't even come close to describing this family. They are some of the most caring, loving, and beautiful people I have ever met and when I'm around them I can honestly feel their sounds weird and I don't really know how to explain it...anyway.... those of you who were at WPPI last year heard me tell a story about our experience with them in Hawaii. The picture in the collage is the father of the bride showing me what having two weddings in one year will do to your wallet...haha....

Here's the slideshow!

I also wanted to let you know that because of the incredible growth we've had on OSP we get to upgrade the server again! I never would've imagined that we would have over 400 people join this community this year! So tonight we will do the transfer and tomorrow the server will be "propagating" so there will be some down time and that will be a good time for all of us to sit down and do some planning and goal setting! :)

I'll also be preparing a yearend newsletter so if you're not on the list be sure to go to and get signed up.

Much love to all of you and I look forward to meeting more and more of you in 2006!
