Well I’ve finally made some time to post some more about my trip to Cali in February.
I had such a great time!!
After spending a few days in Santa Barbara with David Jay, Tim Halberg, Sara France, Amy Nave, Chris Humphreys, Dane Sanders and Michael and Anna Costa and so many other amazing wedding photographers who are lucky to live in such a beautiful place!!
I was lucky enough to join them in launching their own Santa Barbara Pictage User Group. Sara France was there to launch the group which will be lead by David.
Here’s the group from the night of the launch! It was so funny see so many of you again and meeting so many others!
I next headed down to Laguna Beach to hangout with a whole group of wedding photographers from OSP. Its amazing that so many of these people are the leaders of their local industries.
Here’s a shot of us nerdy blackberry users!!
(L to R) David Jay, Becker, Mike Colon, Sara France and Me!!
I posted earlier about the beach session with Mike and Ann, so be sure to read that post as well.
The next week I had the privilege of being able to speak at the Orange County Pictage User Group in Irvine. Pepper Nix, the leader of the group, was AWESOME!!! It was so much fun finally being able to give her a big hug and thank her for inviting me. And a big shout out to Sara France again, who was gracious enough to bring her projector for me to use during the presentation.
After the PUG we headed to a great italian restaurant that I can’t remember the name of, but I had some wonderful pasta!
And I totally forgot to have a picture taken earlier at the PUG, so we took one after dinner. This was probably a third of the group. Thanks for sticking around!!!
I’m sure I’m forgetting so much, but this will have to do for now!
