%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || ZumaPhoto has an ALL NEW, totally redesigned website, and guess what? YOU’RE ON IT!! (unless you’re reading this through an RSS feed, Facebook, etc., in which case, click the link and come visit us!). And while you’re here, why not go vote for us in The Ultimate Utah Wedding giveaway! Its tax-deductible!

The site that we’ve had up until this point was literally put together in one day and we’ve not done much to it in two years. We’ve had compliments about it, but the truth is that it looked and acted much like everyone else’s – such is the weakness of Flash template sites. I’ve had something very particular in mind for many many months now, but because of our hectic schedule its taken quite a while to get all the details together. We still have a number of things waiting in the wings, but Its finally ready to unveil! I havn’t seen anything quite like this done by another photography studio, and its our hope that this is going to increase our ability to actively communicate with our clients and fans. Thanks for looking!

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||Continuing on from yesterday’s post… after M.I.A., New York’s Star F*ing Hipsters (hey, its a family blog) took the stage for a high-energy and varied set. After that came U.K.-style political-tinged commentary from Bath, England’s own Citizen Fish, featuring former frontman of the influential Subhumans, Dick Lucas. And finally it was time to make way for the man himself as Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine took the stage to demonstrate once again why Jello is such a legend. Stirring performance.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || So here’s a bit of a diversion from the usual…
Back in 1979 American punk bands had just a pickle of a time getting records made and distributed. One of the most active, influential and notorious of these plucky groups was The Dead Kennedys – true pioneers of hardcore. In the true spirit of the punk DIY ethic, they started their own label, Alternative Tentacles, which rapidly grew to be the home of dozens of varied acts with an eventual catalog of hundreds of ground breaking, important albums. The DKs and many of the other bands that Alternative Tentacles carried were a huge part of my early life and the memories are so vivid that they seem like yesterday…. Well, they weren’t! They were exactly 30 years ago! To celebrate, Alternative Tentacles invited a representative cross-section of acts from throughout its history. My buddy (and amazing photographer in his own right) Nick Adams is the guitarist for one of those invited bands, M.I.A. Nick was kind enough to invite me out for the show!  Part 2 is here.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || For those of you unfamiliar with what a quinceañera is, it is the traditional coming-of-age celebration for girls of Latin American heritage. Held on a girl’s 15th birthday, it combines much of the significance found in Jewish bat mitzvahs (transition into adulthood), Catholic confirmation ceremonies (re-affirmation of the bond with God), sweet sixteen parties (an excuse to have a GIANT party), and a debutante ball (introduction to society and a kick-butt dress!).

They’re a really big deal in the western U.S. where there are large Latino communities, but despite my hopping between California and Utah, this was the first quinceañera I’ve ever shot. It totally rocked!
