One of the great things about being a wedding photographer is the great variety of people I get to meet. Over the course of the years I've met doctors, lawyers, asphalt layers, seafood company executives, Microsofties, Googleites, Yahooligans, Amazonians (the book selling kind) tug boat owners, mechanics, diamond brokers, Hell's Angels members, sports stars, talk show hosts and the occasional reality tv personality. What I love even more is when people stay in touch. One case of that is Shanna Follansbee. She lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband, but her family lives in Eastern Washington. She called me about a year ago because she was writing a cookbook and needed some help with the photographs. I helped her process the images for her book. Also, on a trip to Seattle, she had me take some photographs for her book. Last week, I received the final version in the mail with my photographs on the front and back covers. Not only did she sign it for me, but she even thanked me on the dedication page! How cool. You can buy her fabulous book at Amazon. It includes some amazing recipes. One I'm looking forward to trying is the Seared Salmon with Fresh Corn Cakes and Avocado Salsa, but I might have to try the Grilled Mexican Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Goat Cheese-Stuffed Poblano and Tomatillo Sauce. Yum!
