Brion Hopkins pretty much summed up everything I think you should know about him in these two sentences:

“I shoot film and digital, and I will travel anywhere to shoot a wedding (including Cuba, I would go to Cuba for free actually). Also, I love chocolate chip cookies.”

He left out the part about how he also takes freaking awesome photos, but I think they speak for themselves…

I couldn’t resist including one of Brion’s polaroids:

Want more? Go check out his blog and his website, and then sign him up quick, because now that the word is out I’m pretty sure he’s going to be all booked up in no time…

Happy Friday everyone! Two of my favorite ladies are coming to visit me this weekend, which makes me feel a little like the cutie in this photo. If it keeps raining like this, I think we’ll mostly be hanging out and eating, which is about as good as it gets when you’re with two of your best friends. Anyone else have fun plans for the weekend?

I’m a rad influence – hear 10 of my song picks over at The Flash Dance!

I might take up scrapbooking.

Happy weekend lovelies!
