Kenny+Jessica+Little Frogs=Great Day!

Man, some days you just never expect. I feel like I have done a goodly amount of weddings and kind of have a groove and a rhythm. But its life's little surprises that makes it all worth while. I showed up at this wedding thinking it would be normal. But I forgot that I was shooting with the great Dylan Mayer. He always keeps me on my toes and I learn sooooooo much from him. The thing that was crazy was that Dylan decided it would be a good idea to catch the little frogs that were around the lake. "Get me like 5 frogs." I kind of just laughed and went on shooting. "You got those frogs yet?" Dylan says. "Are you serious?" I couldn't believe my job that day would be to catch frogs. "Yeah man just get me like 5. It'll make a dope ring shot." I sort of took a deep breath and grabbed a cup. As I am bent over trying to catch frogs I had a rather humorous inner monologue. "I have a Masters degree in plant biology. I am a decently smart fellow. I am on my hands and knees at a wedding catching frogs." I sort of laughed to myself and realized that anytime Dylan has sent me to do a crazy adventure like this...the photos turn out amazing. The wedding was super fun and I had a great time hanging out with Dylan and getting back in the groove of shooting. My frog shot didn't turn out super great...mostly because I was doing the frog placement and Dylan was doing the shooting. Check his blog HERE for the true awesomeness. Enjoy!

  1. You do not have Master's degree. Although, if you spent more time writing your thesis rather than taking pictures maybe you would ;)
