Scott and I also had the pleasure of photographing anther engagement session on the strip with our wedding couple. How cool is that, all the beautiful scenery, so much to do and see, we had a great time!   The guys had a hard time keeping us girls out of the stores. So much bling, cool hand bags, luggage, and everything you can image … oh my.

So exciting, we were selected to be interviewed for graphistudio convention, we had the pleasure of attending GraphiStudio’s photographic convention in Chicago back on August 30th.  Our good friends and mentors were speaking …  Bob Davis and Dawn Davis, … Yervant Zanazanian and Annie Zanazanian.

Our sales rep asked us if we would do a video interview for Graphistudio, so with no time to prepare, we did it! So nervous and exiting.
