%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||As I’m sure everyone is well aware, yesterday was National Unicorn Day – a magical celebration of Joy, Joyfulness & Joyousness (and Joy)! Oh rapture!

Every year at this time, we at ZumaPhoto fill our hearts with a rainbow of fruit-flavored, glittery happiness and love. This year, led by our own little Alpha-Corn, Angela, the ladies of ZumaPhoto went all out with happy-hilarious-head-horns, chirpy-cheerful-cupcakes, and perky-playful-pizza-pie!

All in all, it was a mirthful festival of all things blissful, blithe and gay! And an impressively elaborate excuse to avoid work for an hour.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||Remember Marisa & Mickey’s stop-motion ‘save the date’ video that we did for them back in September?

Well…plans have changed.

So we did a NEW version of the video to bring it up to date.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||Occasionally we’ll have a client ask for something different.  Something out of the box.

Marisa & Mickey had seen a few stop-motion videos used as ‘Save the Date’ notes floating around the web and asked if we could do that for them.  Now I havn’t played with stop-motion since high school (I seem to remember it involved a lot of dismembered clay people), but I’m not one to avoid a challenge.

Someone (probably a thief) once said that good artists borrow while great artists steal – so, M & M took some ideas they found out there, added a few touches of their own and asked us to make it happen.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||When I was a child my father had a 4+ hour reel-to-reel mix of Christmas music that he would bring out every December and that labor of love became an integral part of my holiday memories. About 5 years ago I began to gather all of the songs on my father’s original collection and have been adding my own selections to that core group ever since. Today we have nearly 1200 songs in nearly every genre and period, including timeless classics, contemporary updates, irreverent satire, and the just plain strange…. ZumaPhoto would like to share it with you as our way of saying thanks, and of course Happy Holidays!

This is a tradition that I wish to pass on to my own children, and so I have named the stream after my son Zen. So far, he isn’t really showing what I consider to be appropriate appreciation, but then he’s not yet 2.

And so without further ado, we offer for your listening pleasure Zen’s Christmas Toybox.
