I love this image because I feel it sums up Jenn and Charlie as much as any one image can – they have an amazing warmth about them and they love to laugh!  We were so happy to have the opportunity to share their wedding day with them this past weekend.  You will never meet two funnier people and their friends and family are just amazing.  What a great way to end the year! :o)


Jenn and Charlie, thank you so much for allowing us into your world!  We wish you many, many years of happiness and laughter together! 

 Happy New Year’s Eve Everyone!!

 – Mel

    Aweseome photo! I love your work and can’t wait to hear details about your workshop plans.

    Hey Carmen! Thanks so much! We love hearing from new people – and old ones too so stop by often! ;o) David, you guys are great! We always look forward to your uplifting comments! We’ll miss you guys in Tampa! Hansel, thank you! We really appreciate it! As for workshop plans, we like the idea of extremely small groups so that we can tailor the experience to what your needs are. I think for now, we would love to just do a few with single studios at a time in order to really focus on individuals. Of course, depending upon the amount of interest, we would be open to the idea of a larger setting. Really, we’d just love to hear your ideas and what you’re looking for! If anyone is interested in something like this, shoot us an email!

    … I thoroughly enjoyed a McLellan Workshop myself. Especially the part where my head exploded from so much information. I practically don’t even need to go to the DWF Convention now…
