I love when couples come to sessions with an idea or two for photos . And I love it even more when they want to incorporate a little bit more of their personalities into their photos. So when Victoria + Nathan wanted to add a game of Magic, a small white pumpkin and some tree climbing into their session I was all for it! Add a couple Instax cameras and it definitely made for a super fun session!
With the wedding season over for us I have time to finish up some photos from everything else that has been going on in our lives. So with that said, I wanted to share some baking photos from the past couple of get-togethers we have had, or at least from the couple I took photos during.
As some of you may already know, Dave and I went to LA last week. It was a short trip, we left very early Thursday morning and came home very early Monday morning, and when I say early, I mean like 1am and 3am, respectively. We spent one day at the WB Studios and then headed down to Anaheim for BLIZZCON!!!
Blizzcon is a gaming convention put on by Blizzard. It revolves around their three main titles, the Warcraft Series (including World of Warcraft), Starcraft and Diablo. This year they also introduced Hearthstone (currently in Beta) and Heroes of the Storm (currently not released). The entire trip was Dave’s early and belated birthday present (early as we bought the tickets back in April before his birthday and belated as we went on the trip after his birthday). But the trip was just as much fun for me (shh don’t tell him). I will be blogging about the trip in more detail in the coming weeks, but for now I am going to blog about meeting two of the awesome people we follow online: Husky and Rosanna Pansino (aka Ro).
Husky is a Starcraft caster and Dave has been watching him for quite some time. I started watching him shortly after Dave as Husky is actually really funny and super excitable, which is a fantastic trait as a caster. Seriously, go watch him and keep an ear out for his overlord sound – hilariously awesome!!
Ro is the host of Nerdy Nummies. She is adorable and tiny and I love making baked goods from her show (including Burger Cupcakes that will be posted later this week).
When we heard they were both going to be at Blizzcon, we were super excited thinking we may get a glimpse of them amongst the crowds. When we got to meet them and chat with them it truly became the highlight of the whole trip. They are super nice people who didn’t seem to mind at all that we were coming up to them during the event. And to make things even better, they are just as genuinely awesome in real life as they seem on Youtube. Thanks again to both Husky and Ro for taking the time to chat with us, sign our book (and our Starcraft cross-stitch) and taking photos. You guys really did make our Blizzcon trip even more awesome than it already was!!
And yes, Dave drew the Husky Starcraft logo on the Signing Wall at Blizzcon just from a reference photo he found on his phone.
A little while ago I had the chance to do nerd concept shoot with a few local models. They were fantastic (full credits given at our Flickr site, link at bottom of post) — and the shoot, well it was right up my alley!
