It's been almost a whole year since I've made my last Rock Star wedding video so I was really excited to make this video for Justine & Dan! This style of video takes SOOO long to make, but it's SOOO fun for me to see the fruit of my labor once it's done! I have been so blessed to shoot weddings for some of the nicest people in the entire world and Justine & Dan and their families were no exception. They were definitely rock stars!

After shooting a wedding together in Rochester a couple weeks ago, we headed south to celebrate Thanksgiving with family. As we drove through the countryside of Wisconsin at sunset, we couldn't help but stop for a quick impromptu photo shoot...oh, the joys of traveling with pro photo equipment!
Kelsey is the best wife in the world. She is such a beautiful, industrious, and supportive woman, always striving to put my needs ahead of her own, which I think is the definition of love. I'm challenged every day to love her as well as she loves me!

|I'm taking a quick break from photo and video blogs here to write a bit of a more personal note. For the last few days, I've been living with these little visitors in my body. I began feeling a little something in my throat on Monday night and only 4 hours later, I crashed hard. Kelsey said I slept for 40 out of 48 hours. I tried to do some work in front of my computer but it took everything I had just to answer a couple emails and go back to bed. I felt miserable - fever of 102.3, chills, throbbing neck, head, and throat, and the most disturbing sleep I can remember. Yesterday, I felt well enough to leave home, which I did, figuring I probably needed antibiotics. The doctor confirmed Kelsey and my suspicions, announcing that I had a classic presentation of strep.|
The point of this note, however is not to talk about how sick I was, but rather, what a blessing it is to be healthy. Whenever I get really knocked out like that, I'm always amazed at how incredible it feels to become well again. It's easy to be grateful for your health when you feel like you have 10 times the strength you had just a day ago. It's also easy to take it for granted when you're blessed with health for an extended period of time. I wanted to put this thought in writing to challenge myself and others. If God has blessed you with good health, he has given you a very beautiful gift. Praise him for that gift by using it! Our bodies are made for movement, activity, and the enjoyment of this world. Maintain this gift and enjoy it to the fullest!
