So this one was definitely different for me. You see, Chris is the owner of Dirty Dog Bar. I've known him for...wow, well I guess it's been somewhere around 11 years now, LITERALLY as long as Dirty Dog Bar has been open! We have partied together and I have taken THOUSANDS of photos there over the years. In fact, it's the place where I basically taught myself photography by photographing multiple events: bar anniversary parties, SXSW shows, the 2006 UT vs. USC game where Vince Young TROTTED into the endzone to secure UT's victory 41-38 (with the assist of a 2-point conversion), my entertainment company Unreal Entertainment LLC's launch party (forgot about this one!!), or even because it was simply a Tuesday night...you name it I was pretty much there, sometimes with my camera in-hand, sometimes not, and Chris, aka Shitty, was no doubt leading the charge on the big nights! It has and continues to be a wild ride.
When Claire came around...oh man, talk about change. You know that cheesy video of Tom Cruise jumping on the coach saying he was in love after he met Katie Holmes? Yeah it was kinda like that (sans the crazy). And by the way that wasn't a bad thing! From that point on it was rare to see him without her, and after meeting her I knew that was it for him! He was done. Beautiful, quick-witted, health-conscious - everything Shitty needed to get whipped into shape ;) As most us who know Shitty predicted, the wedding bells started ringing. Well, there was NO FREAKIN' WAY I was going to miss out on this one. Enjoy the photos!! And if you want a great time at a GREAT Austin-grown, Austin-owned local bar, swing by Dirty Dog Bar one and night and grab a few beers!!
Another shout out to William Bryan Murdock aka DJ MADNESS for providing awesome tunes all night!
