David is a classy, yet hilarious English gent, so naturally Heather and I had to sign him up for “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy.” He had never heard the song before, but he sang every word of that horrible mess with a straight face and not a hint of embarrassment. Heather and I did the background vocals. Yes, there is video. No, I won’t share it. David is my hero now, and I hope to be able to visit him the next time we’re in England. Heather is my newfound sister from another mother. Thanks for the photo, John!
Last week I attended the annual convention of the Digital Wedding Forum. It was my third DWF convention, and this year it took place in Carefree, Arizona. This convention was my favorite yet, because I loved the location, the scenery, and the timely information in our seminars. I wasn’t sure whether the seminars would repeat everything we’d discussed in the previous two conventions, but I learned a lot last week. The industry is constantly changing, and I need to stay ahead of the game. I came home rejuvenated and energized for 2009.
I also had great times with my photographer friends from around the world! I get to see many of them only once a year, so it was great to spend time with them. I can’t believe that I have to wait another year before we can do it again. Here are a couple of the less-incriminating photos from the week.
Me with Denny Fenbers from Denver
Autumn Burke from Denver, accessorizing
Tamera Goldsmith, from Colorado Springs
Me with Holly Pacione, also from Colorado Springs
Hillary Gardner has a new baby! (from San Diego)
Here’s David Pearce again…
… and here’s Tamera’s reaction to his painful Rick Astley number.
Tamera, Heather, and me
Me with Leslie Gilbert and Chelsea Elizabeth. It was as much an iPhone convention as anything else. (Photo by Tamera Goldsmith)
Me with Kristi Keinholz and Tasha Herrgott. I’m good at the Myspace self-portrait thingy.

Me with John Michael Cooper (a.k.a. AltF). (Thanks, Tamera)
Me during karaoke. Who needs air guitars anymore, when there are Guitar Hero props everywhere?
