An Oath

I just made an oath. After seeing a picture of myself.

My good friend Greg Bumatay and I often shoot together. Because of this, I'm quite sure he has more than enough pictures to use a blackmail, should he find the reason ;) I received an email from him yesterday and he sent this picture:

Apparently, he shot it while I was taking this picture:

Now, I was thoroughly embarrassed because not only do I appear imbecilic laying in the grass, I didn't even take off my backpack!?! Surely I have a first-class ticket to Dorksville, with no return. I clearly remember this moment because the couple was having a moment with each other and I didn't want to miss it, so I just plopped down where I was and shot away. With my backpack on. I'm cool. Reeeeeally, really cool.

So, if there are prospective brides perusing my blog, please keep two things in mind: (1) I'll do anything to never miss a shot; and (2) I'll hide my backpack at your wedding...I promise :)

DJ, if you hang out more with me, you're going to have to recant that statement :)

Drew, I know, Greg's a lot sneakier than we think! :)

I think all photographers have a bit of "dork" in them. It comes with the territory! hahaa!!! But I think that you just might be the least dorkiest photographer I've ever met. So no worries. Nice shot too!

But the backpack does kinda look like it's squashing your tiny self. :)

Can't wait to see you VERY soon!!!! And enjoy some awesome food together!! Yuuummmm!
