Exhausted doesn’t even begin to describe how we felt this week.  New Years day til January 7th was spent shooting AND editing photos for 21 – yes, 21! – Hampton Roads area restaurants for an up-and-coming local mag called Taste.  We also knew we had to end the week by shooting our first 2009 wedding.  Weddings are notoriously long and tiring, so we were a little apprehensive.  However, Janelle + Gerard’s ended up being one of our favorite weddings ever.  They had all the elements of a great wedding – funny/friendly/party people, a beautiful setting at the new TownCenter Westin, open bar and the debauchery that follows, DCPG photobooth shenanigans, and most importantly, a really great couple who are crazy in love.   Needless to say, we had a LOT of fun and got lots of great photos.  Big thanks to Janelle + Gerard, Marivic for her mad wedding-planning skills, Pat & Phil for the always awesome DJ’ing and, of course, Emer for helping us out and hanging out w/ us after his “shift” was over.

We got tons of photos of this little guy – super photogenic:


Here’s Marivic and her crazy self:

I know some people are looking for photobooth pics – rest assured, I’m working on that.  I’ll try to get those up ASAP.  Keep checking our Facebook and also our Photobooth page on our official site.

It’s almost 4:30am, so I will end this here.  Hope everyone’s 2009 is going great so far!
