Photo Friday: Trophy Wives

Given my weekend schedule, I almost need to stop calling this Photo Friday. Once again I actually shot on Saturday, but hey, they’re still happening, at least.

A friend and I frequently remind one another that we’ve married up. Here’s why:

Melissa and Kim

Yep. Our fat asses really lucked out.

This weekend the family and I attended a combined birthday party for two friends who turned 40 this month, and one of the organizers asked me to shoot some photos. I would have had my camera along anyway, so I was happy to do so.

Is there anything artsy or fancy about the pic (aside from the subjects)? Nah. Sometimes a photo is just about capturing a moment. There’s a lot less pressure in creating memories vs creating art, especially when you only have seconds to grab that memory.

    I was doubly lucky…my wife is both smarter and better looking than me.
