DeGrottole Wedding (Kaua'i)

Michael and Yuzuko have become fast friends forever. They ended up joining us on a trip to the north shore, in the back of my pickup truck no less. We all went swimming in a wet cave at Ha'ena, hung out at Tahiti Nui, snorkeling at Hanalei Bay, did a waterfall shoot and dinner at Plantation Gardens.

I think it's important to try to become friends with your clients. It seems like such a waste to spend such intimate time with them and not become friends after one of the most important days of their life. It's nice to have the feeling, "I wish they could married again, that was FUN".

DEAL: The Nikon DX 35mm f/1.8 is in-stock at B&H and in-stock at Ritz. They don't last. You know how much I love that lens; I was shooting photos of Katie with it just hours ago. NEW: Adobe Photoshop CS4
Review. Hardly a review of everything that Photoshop does; this is an analysis of why the upgrade to CS4 made sense for me several months ago. Observed: Ladies' Handmade Camera Straps. Nikon 85mm f/3.5. NEW: Nikon 85mm f/3.5 VR DX
. Nikon 18-200mm VR II. NEW: Nikon 18-200mm VR II
Review. No news is news: I tested this new version, and it really is identical except for the zoom lock. Even the coatings are the same.
