2006- In the Rear View Mirror

December 31, 2006

If I had to slap a single word on the year 2006 it would be transition. In the first days of 2006 we began buiding a house in Raleigh, sold our current house in Greensboro way sooner than we thought we would and moved to our home town of Wilmington. Our new home was ready in May, but we were too busy to move, so waited until July (still too busy) to move from Wilmington to Raleigh. Are you confused yet? We were! We are now nestled comfortably in Raleigh and the only confusion is figuring out this inner/ outer beltline thing.

Between all of that moving we managed to shoot scores of amazing weddings that took us to fantastic destinations both in the US and Mexico. We met so many great couples and their families, and worked with other extremely talented wedding professionals. It was quite a year and below we have listed some of the statistics for your amusement.

In 2006, we figured out that we created over 370,000 images for our clients between weddings, bridals, engagements, commercial shoots, magazine shoots and James’ Moving Picture Shows®.

It’s no surprise that in 2006 we had to replace the shutter mechanism in three of our five cameras due to over use.

In 2006, five – count them, five computer hard drives died. (YIKES!) This was distressing, though the number of images lost was ZERO because it’s all backed up nice and safe.

This year we were rained on once, snowed on once, and got sun burned a few times.

We also managed to destroy three flash units and beat up two lenses pretty bad (we’re getting counseling).

In 2006, we logged more miles on I-40 between Wilmington and Greensboro than we drove total in 2005.

What’s in store for 2007?

First, a vacation, I’m thinking a mountain getaway before things get going again.

The UN-bridal experience by W&W. I’m really excited about this.

Family Time- as brides and grooms become Moms and Dads (it happens) we will be offering sessions that incorporate our shooting styles to tell the family story in an unforgettable way.

Of course, more rockin’ weddings and magazine features are on the way!!
