Felicity Magazine Strikes Back! Or......errrrr, again? Warning! Blog Post Heavily Saturated with Sarcasm.

Once again the creative blitzkrieg of Felicity Magazine in New Orleans forced me to endure agonizing working conditions.  Considering the undeniable fact that I'm just a ridiculously giving human being I felt obliged to accept their invitation to endure wickedly talented models showing off Local Designer, Alicia Zenobia's creations as well as a regional beachwear brand by the name of Mermania.

I also can't forget that in addition to the previously mentioned "Easy on the Eyes group", I had to struggle through the flipping awesome hair styling of Hans and Adrian Billot, AKA, The BeKrewe and the staggeringly wicked smarts and talent of Midori Stories Professional Makeup Artist, who once again send me into a deep depression with the reminder that I'm stupidly awful in doing my own hair and makeup when I go out!  

Somedays, as I'm sure we can all agree, are worse than others.  However I soldiered on and got the images that I hoped to get and a few that just couldn't have been planned and that's not the worst way to spend an afternoon I suppose.  Silver Lining People!  Look for it! If that beauty and brains behind Felicity Magazine, Miss Sarah Smith(soon to be Mrs.) calls me back I suppose I'll fight through another back breaking work day with them! Heavy lies the crown some might say!  Enjoy!

Cheers,

Titus

Greta & Nick - GIGGITY, GIGGITY, GIGG-A-TY!

If you've been hiding under a rock for the last decade or so you should catch on to this posts title as the now infamous character from the animated tv show Family Guy. Why am I telling you this?  I know if you're a regular follower of my work, blogs or everyday shenanigans that I have faith in the fact you're well aware of that quote.

What on god's green glorious earth does that saying have to do with this smitten, ear to ear grinning couple?  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  I just think it's freaking hilarious.  But also when I go back through my favorite images of this New York Power Couple I realize how infectious there smiles were to me.  Every aspect of their wedding catered to their individuality.  From (possibly the greatest wedding vows I've ever heard) there tear jerking and down right funny as hell ceremony to my first chance at working in the pristine and new New Orleans Ace Hotel. To an absolute brilliant and exhausting second line that parted Bourbon Street like the police at the stroke of midnight on Fat Tuesday!

Greta & Nick will always have my admiration.  In a world of conformity overload they did it exactly the way they wanted to.  These are the results I think Frank SInatra was getting at when he said, "I did it my way".  Many many many happy future endeavors and enjoy a life of obnoxiously big grins that stretch from ear to ear!

Cheers,

Titus
