WPPI - Epic West Coast Road Trip 2012

Today Leslie and I are leaving, headed out for our second annual 2 week Epic Road trip to the west coast. I'm not saying we are going to make a habit of this, but you may remember last years trip. This time we are going with two of our friends. Four photographers packed into a Prius with 4,000 miles of driving ahead of them. Our journey will take us to the Grand Canyon for two days. Then off to the coast. First in Laguna Beach, California for a couple more days, then up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco, where we will stay in "Japan Town". After a few days in San Fran we head to Las Vegas, Nevada for the largest convention for Wedding Photographers in the United States, WPPI. For the next two weeks we will be shooting, driving, blogging, tweeting, facebooking, eating, and some very little sleeping. Sometimes all at the same time, haha, but also soaking in the wonderfully beautiful country as we travel from one location to the next.

Tuesdays With Eli - WPPI, Las Vegas, & Friends!

Today is Tuesday! I have to apologize for not getting my "Tuesdays with Eli" blog post up sooner for you guys. I'm still here in Las Vegas for the giant WPPI convention and things are a bit crazy! There is so much going on I really don't have time to blog, but I know that you guys are waiting on it! Haha. As I'm typing this, I'm sitting here in the MGM Hotel's lobby up against the wall using their electricity and free WiFi. This is Vegas, it's 2010, you would think there would be free WiFi everywhere...there's not. This week has been so much fun! I've meet so many people and seen so much stuff. My feet hurt, because for 3 days I've walked everywhere and let me tell you this place is not small. I still have 2 days left, and I'm trying to get as much as possible out of this trip. I really am have a super great time, but I'm also really starting to miss Leslie. The people in the photography industry are some of the best, positive, friendly, and inspiring people. To get this many people in one area that all love what they do radiates excitement! I can't wait to get back and share all that I've seen and heard with my friends back home that didn't get to come. I'm sure thankful that I've had the oppertunity to go to WPPI! God has blessed my life immensely, and I'm excited to share with others!Here are a couple photos for you guys that I took while walking the Vegas Strip! I also wanted to let you guys download them if you wanted for prints or desktop wallpapers if you want. So here you go!
