April & Sergio's New Orleans Wedding

As soon as I met April I knew we'd have fun.  I normally find myself trying holding back on my typically excessive use of the words "dude" and "awesome" in wedding conversations, but felt no such urge to do so here.  She's the cousin of a friend of mine and a roller derby girl, so there was no shortage of laughs.  Really, check out the picture of the crowd in church during their ceremony.  Who else has that much fun in church?!  She's the only bride I've worked with so far who has successfully rocked a luchador mask on the dance floor. Oh, and they had cake pops at the reception at the Napoleon House.  If you've read much of this blog, you know that I'm hopelessly addicted to cake pops.

Congrats to April and Sergio!

The Zombie Cakepopalypse!

We like to have fun around here, if that hasn't become obvious yet.  When I told Jenny that I'd like some cake pops instead of a traditional birthday cake, she jumped at the idea.  But since we can't do anything without turning it into an art project, she decided to make the cake pops into little people and yes, little zombies. She disappeared into the kitchen to make various flavors of cake pops, carefully icing and placing each of their little eyes.  I set up and lit our scene so we could take a few pictures of our creations.  I always tell people that I spend a lot of time "playing" with food while I photograph it, but in this case, were literally playing with these guys, making them go after each other, picking out who we thought should survive and who should get eaten.

Dessert should always be this fun.
