Weekend in Dallas

I was in Dallas last weekend for a tv and photo shoot with the Mavericks at the American Airlines Center, for my client the NBA. Being a Mavs fan, needless to say it was a cool experience. Got to meet Dirk, Josh Howard and Jason Kidd.

And before I left town, I got to see one of my groomsmen Kyle and his fiance Angela. And I had dinner with Jack and Suzanne at their house, where I finally got to meet their twin boys Jacob and Luke.

Would have been the perfect weekend, had the Aggies not gotten robbed in the tournament. Oh well...

Here are some pics of the shoot

Ags upset of UCLA comes up just short, as we don't get the foul call on the last play. Safe to say the refs might have missed this one.

St. Patty's Day in Chicago

We were in Chicago over St. Patrick's Day weekend for our good friends Keith and Kara's Bachelor/Bachelorette parties. We had a great time and got to see a lot of our good friends. It was good to be back in Chicago, even for just a couple days.

Anniversary Trip

Kate and I celebrated our 1st Anniversary with a trip down to the central coast. We took HWY 1 all they way down, through Santa Cruz and Monterey, and we stayed in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
Carmel by-the-sea. It was a great trip. We visited some wineries, had a great dinner in Carmel, took the 17-Mile Drive through Pebble Beach and went out to Big Sur .

Here are some pictures from the trip, and a video I made...

Ben and Jared in SF

One of my best friends, Jared, and a long lost college friend, Ben, recently came to San Francisco for a few days. Ben is a dentist in the Air Force and is living South Korea, so we don't get a chance to see him very often. But when he came back to the States for a family wedding in Phoenix, he stopped off in SF for a few days and Jared flew out from Dallas to meet him.
