Christmas Photo

I don't remember when the last time my sister, brother, and i had a photo taken togther.

my sister asked me to take a photo of all of us to send to our dad as a christmas card. so here it is, the first photo of us togther in at least 15 years.

wedding photographer

Last night i shot a wedding with a friend. It has reconfirmed the fact that I am not a wedding photographer, but more than that, it has reconfirmed the fact that I NEVER EVER wish to become a wedding photographer.

I'm perfectly happy retouching wedding photographs. as long as I'm behind the keyboard and not the camera, I'm a happy camper.

I admire wedding photographers so much more than I ever have. I will happily pay a wedding photographer, a good one, $4000 or more.

the bright side is that the DJs i met over there were super fantastic! not only was the music very, very good and kept everyone on the dance floor (and kept the photographers dancing and singing along as well), but they helped us so much by giving us tips they learned from other wedding photographers and let us know when something was about to happen such as the first dance, cake cutting, and other special moments. the MCing they did was superb! they were funny and very entertaining.

They not only provide the sound, they provide the lighting! It made the room visually stunning! The dance floor was lit with vibrant colors and even paid attention to special details like lighting the walls and the cake! I've been to quite a number of events in my day and they are by far the best DJs i've ever met.

fall cleaning

i had planned to do homework all day today, but randy wanted to clean the room. he was really frustrated with the state of chaos that our room was in (and has been for months).

i decided the best thing to do was clean. homeowork can always wait until tomorrow.... i hope. i have more cleaning to do. oh well. making randy happy is more important. it feels like i haven't done anything for him in quite some time.

the room looks better, but that's because most of the mess is still spread out all over the back yard and has yet to make it's way back into our room.

there is actually more of a mess than when we started, but that's the way it goes isn't it? you pull everything out, throw away all the stuff you can't understand why you kept in the first place, and then repack all the stuff you will probably never use in boxes and store that for another 3 years.

wish me luck on cleaning.
