texas, a teaser, wppi & more

Yeehaw cowgirls & cowboys! I’m fresh off a trip to San Antonio Texas for Imaging USA which is one of the big photography trade shows (it moves every year too, next year New Orleans!). I was asked by my lab Millers Lab & mpix pro to speak at their trade show booth and their Luxe Lounge. If that wasn’t enough I was at the drop it MODERN booth too for photo booth tutorials. I met some fascinating people, hung with old friends and made many new friends. I want to thank the people who sat and listened to me for an hour multiple times. I’m honored and glad to have shared with you all. On my way out Tuesday I received a text from Southwest saying my flight was canceled (ice storm in Albany), gotta love technology right? Anyway this allowed for me to spend one more day/night and actually see San Antonio. All my time before that was spent at Imaging so I took a crumby flight cancelation and made the best of it.

Before heading to Texas we shot an awesome winter wedding with lots of snow! My intentions were to have blogged Pam & Adams wedding but loosing a whole day to traveling has made this difficult to get to. Here is a little teaser image from Saturdays wedding. I was stoked to have set off our 2011 wedding season with these guys! Make sure to check back soon to see their full post.

I don’t know if I have officially announced this yet but it’s pretty big news. I’ll be speaking at WPPI in Las Vegas this year. I have a platform class from 6:00pm-8:00pm on Tuesday February 22nd. I’ll be speaking about marketing and my Elario Photo Booth you can find out more here. I’d be totally honored if you photogs attending WPPI would come see me. My platform talk is sponsored by Millers Lab and drop it MODERN with giveaways from them as well. The catch is you gotta stay and listen to me 😉 I’ll also be speaking at Millers & mpix pro’s booth, drop it MODERN and I believe the Zenfolio booth too.

One last thing. Instagram. It’s an free iPhone app that makes sharing photos totally fun and I’m totally addicted to it. I’ll be instagraming all season like a crazy beast. So download it find me (jpelario) and share photos. It’s a cool app, no I’m not endorsing them I just love it. These are some snaps I instagram’d in San Antonio. The one of me in the bottom left was from my photographer friend Jewell of The Lovely Photo in Balitmore MD. Thanks for the snap Jewell!

One last thing.. to the brides (& grooms) to be. We’ll be at the Glen Sanders Bridal Show this Sunday. Sunday, Sunday, Sunday lol.. Come see us!

Thats all for now.
