Photographer search!

Hey guys, I have a super awesome couple PJ & Maggie from Memphis, TN that we did a session for their engagements but we aren’t available for their wedding. Their date is August 15th.

Check out my earlier post for the rest of their engagement pictures but they are a super fun couple that made it really easy to get great images. I have really bee trying to explore all my options to get them a good wedding photographer but with no luck. One of the problems is they don’t have a ton of money, and can’t go much past $1,000 for photography.

Also they are in Memphis. If anyone out there is interested and is willing to throw them a deal please let me know and I would be willing to maybe throw a favor your way as well!

Like I said please read their engagement post to get to know them a little better. But trust me if you have a way to get down there it will be a great time and they know a lot of people that I’m sure you could get a lot of work from!

Thanks guys!

Jim’s sweet custom Harley

As you have seen from my previous post (Calling all motorheads) I have been getting into automotive photography and it’s been really fun. Jim contacted me because he saw justin’s bike that I shot (the black Z1000) So we set something up and it’s my first paid motors shoot. I think it went really well and I hope I get more opportunity to do some more stuff like this.

So if you have anyone you know that loves their car enough to let me give them some sa-weet photos of it, let them know I am the man for the job =)

Meet Jim and his custom built harley he did himSELF! Super cool dude.
