“American Marriage” – The Movie

If you have been following me on twitter you already know I have been working on the documentary “American Marriage” with my talented friends Mike Flanagan and Courtney Bell.  “American Marriage” is about the history of marriage in America.  It poses the question what is “traditional marriage?”   That definition has constantly been changing for several hundred years.  We have experts from all different points of view.  The film does not try to take a stand about who is right or wrong but allows the view to get equal representation from all sides what marriage in America is today.   Today we are proud to announce the launch of the website and trailer.

Below is a screenshot of the website make sure you go check it out.

You may want to let the trailer load a little before watching. You can find larger versions of the trailer on SmugMug.

We are still looking for more people willing to donate to help make this documentary possible. We still have some great people to interview for the film and even a donation as small as $10 can help toward the travel costs or tape stock required for these interviews.  

 Please spread the word about this great documentary to all you friends and family.  You can become a fan of the film on Facebook to keep up to date about what we are filming next. We are so excited to finish this project and get it out there for everyone to see.

Update on Goal #2: Get Moving

I have been really slacking on blogging recently. I need to get back into the habit of posting at least once a week. I have plenty of things to post about I just need to take the time to write each post. Keep coming back for some cool posts in the coming weeks.

So on to the reason for this post.

You might remember a little over 5 months ago I posted my goal to get moving again this year. If you have been following me on twitter and keeping up on my blog I am sure you know that I have been very successful with this goal. Back in May, which is just 2.5 months since I started my goal, I posted about completing my first 5K.  So far that is the only official race I have taken part in but soon enough I will have at least one half-marathon under my belt. 

Here are some notes updating you about the past 5 months and what is ahead:

  • I have dropped 24 pounds on the scale so far.  I haven’t been this light for 4 years.  I am hoping to drop 15 to 20 more.  
  • I have been doing lifting focusing on my upper body every Mon, Wed, Fri each week and have definitely put on some muscle so I am sure I have lost more than 24 pounds of fat.
  • I am usually getting a run in 5 to 6 days a week with each run usually being at least 30 minutes. 
  • Most days I am running either 3, 4, or 5 miles. 
  • I have had weeks recently where I have run 25 and 22 miles over 6 days.  
  • My Nike shoes that I wrote about in the original post are holding up well.  They have been very comfortable and I have had no blisters at all.
  • Last week I was able to do my first chin-up in at least 4 years.  I actually did 2!  I immediately went out and bought a chin-up bar.
  • My best times are 3.0 miles in 23:40,  4.0 miles in 33:26, and 5.0 miles in 43:54 
  • Kolby and I are planning on running in the Las Vegas half marathon December 6th.

Bryce & Loni – 08/09/09 – Dana Point Wedding Photography

This past Sunday I rose before 6:00am and hit the road before 7:00am for Bryce and Loni’s intimate wedding at the Chart House Restaurant in Dana Point. The cool/strange thing about morning weddings is once you are done working it is still light out and you have the rest of the day ahead of you.  I need to thank my good friend Brian Hamilton at Suite M for hooking me up with this amazing couple and wedding.  Brian is the owner and main photographer at Suite M Photography.  Among being an awesome photographer, he also is an all around great guy.  He is the first person I recommend if I am already booked.  Here are some of my favorite images from Bryce & Loni’s wedding.

The day started out in Laguna Niguel with Loni getting ready for the day.
