Going to Haiti

I'm scheduled to leave for Haiti in March to work with Pam Plasier, the co-founder of Mission-Haiti. There were upwards of 1200 kids being sponsored prior to the catastrophe two days ago. Any prayers for the people of Haiti, as well as for the teams going to assist would be greatly appreciated.

Winter Bridal Special...and another on the way :)

Last year we started a bit of a tradition with our studio to help take the edge off of these frigid temps. And now here we go again...

Now through Valentine's 2010, any brides that book their wedding day will receive the Engagement Session FREE, at a $150 value.
This is only advertised here on the blog and on the Dan Elliott Weddings website, so spread the word ladies. :)

Watch for another great special in the next few days, which is going out to all of our existing clients first as our way of saying Thank You for these last few years. The snow might be piling up, Christmas might be over, but the winter blues are getting plowed right out the door!

Just saw on the news the other day that the world's tallest building has just been completed in Dubai...
Pish Posh. They got nothin' on this trio.
Construction of the world's best snow fort is now under way. With this kind of determination, state of the art shovels, and cheeks this rosy, how can they lose?
