I had one of the best Thanksgiving's ever this year. I had my awesome cousin and his equally sweet wife over for some slammin' turkey that Deb cooked up. If she keeps it up I think she may end up being on the food network someday. We had some awesome citrus turkey, homemade wine, sweet potato crunch, misc. veggies, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. Here are a few pictures!

Everyone has to have inspiration
The finished product, I had to take it outside because the lighting wasn't as great inside
I don't know what it is. Every once in awhile I just get that urge to go out and take photos in the middle of the night. My neighbors must think I'm crazy running around the yard at 1am taking pictures of strange things, but oh well.
I just love the color in these images; straight off the camera, with no tweaks or weird Photoshop editing applied. Enjoy!
Last year I had several images published in Capture Rochester, the premier book of Rochester, NY photography. This year, although I haven't been up there too much, I also had an image published. If your in Rochester, head down to your local bookstore and pick up a copy, it just hit shelves this past week! Here is the winning image, taken underground University of Rochester Campus.
I just love living near Caesar's Head State Park. Not only is it home to lots of fantastic hiking trails like the Raven Cliff Falls Trail, Naturaland Trust Trail, Dismal Trail, and Gum Gap Foothills Trail, it provides for some of the most scenic landscapes I've ever seen. After a fun (really fun!) drive up 276 to the top of Caesar's Head lookout, Debra and I spent just over six hours hiking all over.
After hiking the BoogerMan Trail in Great Smoky Mountain National Park last year we decided to step it up a few miles and take the big loop (Raven Cliff Falls Trail, Naturaland Trust Trail, Dismal Trail, and Gum Gap Foothills Trail) through Caesar's Head. I love capturing all the fall colors ever year and God definitely didn't disappoint this year. Here are some of my favorites from our hike last weekend!
See what I mean about the fun on the way up!

Debra hurt her ankle on the dismal trail, she's a trooper though so we kept going
It took a whole lot more time to do, mainly because there are a LOT more photos divided in a lot more categories. I've concentrated on Wedding, Portrait, Automotive, Nature, and Architecture. I've finally completed it and now it's uploaded (for your viewing pleasure) in new levels of clarity for you to look at. Check it out, lots of new photos, and lots more detail. J.

I first posted up my fish/plant tank about a month ago. Well it's looking quite a bit different these days. Its stocked with a gold gourmi, 13 neon tetras, 4 ghost shrimp, and a whole ton of different plants. I got some cool looking african driftwood for it too! Check it out!
It's awesome to come home and see how much the plants grew overnight. I've had to to 2-3 trimmings already because the plants were growing out of the tank! For more info on how I set this up and a TON more photos check out my tank journal here
I really love taking photos of cars here in Greenville. Not only are there some really beautiful cars around (maybe the warm weather has something to do with that?), there are some stunning backdrops for the photography as well. Joel decided to hire me to do a little automotive photography with his new Civic Si. He's still in high school and got an awesome deal on this beautiful car. I'm pretty sure if his classmates aren't already jealous, they will be as soon as they see these pictures. Enjoy!
I didn't know what to think when she said we would be meeting at the First Presbyterian Church in Downtown Spartanburg, SC. It turned out to be the perfect backdrop for some very cool bridal portrait shots. Enjoy!
