Taking a little break from weddings, I recently did some portraits of a marital artist named Tariq for his website and promotional materials. Since I still do a fair amount of martial arts action photography, this was a fun combination of portraiture and action. Hope you enjoy!
P.S. I will be setting up for my annual mass-portrait shoot at the US Open Martial Arts Tournament on July 6-7 at the Coronado Springs Resort Disney World. This is an event I have been shooting for the past 9 years and it’s a lot of fun. If you like martial arts, either as a competitor or a spectator, the Night of Champions is a spectacle to behold. If you’ve seen Karate on ESPN or ESPN2, it’s usually this tournament. Here’s a link if you’re interested.

First, at the request of a recently booked bride, I have modified my online payment page to reflect my new package names, descriptions and pricing. When you click on the Online Payment in the menu of the website it now takes you to a page with just the online payment options only. It is a stop-gap just to tide everyone over until the new site is launched. Please let me know if you have any problems using the new page.
In other news, I am hard at work, with a designer, giving my website a dramatic upgrade. The current site was never intended to be permanent but as the season got busier and busier, I never got around to redoing it. SO, I did a search and found a good web designer to work with me and we should have the new site ready to launch in the next week or so. It will be a Flash based site, in keeping with what seems to be an industry-wide trend toward high-end, high-design sites. Personally, I just like function and form and at the moment, I only have function and not too much form. So look for that change to happen soon. When it does happen, you not go directly to my site anymore. When you go to http://www.weddingsbyrobert.com you’ll get a portal and will choose to go to a low-bandwidth html only site, the new, enhanced Flash site or my Blog. I hope everyone likes the new design as much as I do.

Thank you to Leigh & Nick who booked for next June in Orlando. Look for their engagement session and bridal portraits to be posted sometime in September. Also, Nick, I didn’t forget…I’m still working on it.
I am going to try, as much as possible to announce new bookings here when I have a picture available. Congrats to Leigh & Nick for being the first.
Also, judging by the number of bookings/inquiries I’ve gotten for next year, 2008 looks like it’s going to be a killer year for weddings so if you’re thinking about waiting to book me or other vendors, I would not wait too long. This past season was booking about 3-4 months out but it looks like next year is going much earlier so book your favorite vendors now before your date is gone!
