I think it’s about time that I share this EPIC Big Sur engagement session since these two are getting married tomorrow. Sean, Tristine, and I go way back to our days of working together at the Bon-Ton photo studio in Milwaukee (where their love affair began). (Actually, I can take knowing Sean back even further as we took a dark room class in college together.) These two have long since relocated to LA, but planned their long distance wedding in their home state of Wisconsin. So, you can imagine how excited I was when these two asked me to be their wedding photographer! Sean asked Tristine to marry him at the Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur, so we thought it would only be fitting to have their engagement session at the scene of the proposal, and a few other insanely gorgeous locations. We had so much fun climbing hills, getting wet by the surf, and taking in all the views that Big Sur has to offer. Can’t wait until the wedding!
Last month I had the pleasure of taking a trip to Sweden to participate in radiology’s newest member of the academic elite. After a successful defense of her dissertation there was a wonderful dinner party full of champagne, great food, speeches, songs, dances, and did I mention the traditional snaps? Swedes have a tradition of singing songs before drinking snaps, as well as singing songs any time the appointed toastmaster instigates such joyous bursts of celebration. Malin spent many years of research and countless hours writing and then defending her dissertation. Let’s just say that she had a good reason to celebrate! Swedes really know how to throw the most charming and traditional affairs. It was a true pleasure to be able to share in such a joyous and once in a lifetime event. Cheers!!! Skal!!!
