I got to help out my good friend Barrett Bailey on a wedding session he had back in the beginning of January. I haven't had the chance to work on a wedding for a year now, so it was good getting the practice I need for the one I booked for later this year. As joyful as weddings are, there was a seed of grief planted that day in my artistic soul. The knowledge of Barrett moving is daunting; to think I'm going to have to say good-bye to this wonderful, creative man right before he leaves plane-bound to Arizona.
I'm confident Barrett will not be good but GREAT over there and I wish him much business and support. But, out of the many photographers that I know, Barrett was the only one who would not only seek me out but be eager to take pictures with me - and I with him. Its either bad timing or my residence is out of range for most people, but none of these were a factor for Bear to simply get up and meet me for photoventures almost all the time (of course it also helps he lives just a few streets down from me!) It's just going to be hard not having a creative friend at just a phone call away anymore. It's hard to think before Bear, I only did solo work. Now, I don't think the transition will be as easy.
Barrett used my 5D Mark II while I danced behind him taking pictures with his T2i. What nostalgia! It made me miss my stolen T1i so much :(

Thank you for letting me tag along Bear and much luck to where ever you venture!
