Oh my goodness! Last week I had a crazy load of people peek at the blog! Cool.

Since it's the beginning of a new year and I want some more cool blogs to follow and see who's stalking me :) leave me a comment and tell:
1. who you are
2. what city you live in
3. your favorite blog of all time or one you love to follow.
Include the link for all of us to view!

Then I'd love to hear something random about your plans for 2009. (I know a lot of people getting married this year!)

So got on-- git commenting!!

(For those shy ones out of the bunch, I've made the first comment to start everyone off. ;)

My favorite photo blog is by Shelley Paulson, good friend and my wedding photographer! http://www.summersetstudio.com/blog/ But Carli yours is honestly a close second!!! Love your work and the life you put into it!

I am Mary (hear me roar!). I currently reside in Garland, Texas (just outside of Dallas). My favorite blog belongs to my favorite photographer: Fred Egan (http://www.fredegan.com/blog). But, Frontburner (D Magazine's blog) is a close second because they are witty and keep me in the know of what is happening around Dallas. (http://frontburner.dmagazine.com).

I am in 2 weddings this summer and booked to photograph one. Oh, and I am running in a half-marathon in April! :)

Carli R Kiene said...

@everyone- Thanks for being my blog stalker and fan, sharing your fave blogs with me and for the encouragement!!

@Tiffany- Philly, eh?? Well we've shot in Wisconsin, Arkansas and Jamaica! We'd be honored to trek on out to Philly. ;) It's so beautiful there in the fall! Good luck with your wedding plans!

@Cheryl- OMGoodness! It is only 18 days away! Kristin and I are really really looking forward to it! And I've come across Bride's Cafe in the past but forgot about that site. LOVE it, too!

@Rina- Pioneer Woman is incredible! Great photographer, too. And thanks for blowing your cover. ;) hehe It's always great to see beautiful faces and names instead of just "some statistic" that's following you!

@Luis- Costa Rica! I bet you have some incredible favorite spots to photograph! Your work is great, by the way! I especially loved the marble/gel spheres photo. Looks like you used a 50mm lens? :)

@Joanna- Awwww. Any friend of Share's is a friend of mine. I really enjoyed getting to meet all of her buddies. It was a lot of fun, wasn't it? However, had no idea that you were my blog stalker!! hehe. I am mega flattered. Thanks, Joanna! Shelley is an incredibly inspiring photog!

@Selina and Kelly- Of all my brides I was hoping you two would post something because I know you both are avid bloggers and I was interested to see what else you peruse outside of your photog's blog!! haha. Thanks for being so cool. Like I've always said, I get the coolest gals!

@Mare- THANK YOU!!! Thank you for just being you. We need to shoot again soon. Hey! Where's your marathon in April? Can I come photograph you? Way to go!!!

@Carli (;)) It is in Dallas!! April 5 and I would LOVE THAT! Here's to hoping you aren't booked in lovely ATX :)

Chandra Renteria said...

Hi, Chandra here! I'm a proud native Texan living in beautiful Austin. And I have the great fortunate of being one of your brides in '09 as well! I haven't known you too long, but I'll confess that I'm already one of your blog stalkers :) I love everything you write, from your emails to your blogs, because you always make me smile and laugh!! When I'm not reading your blog, I read my friends' personal LiveJournals.

Milton said...

Milton from Austin/Pflugerville. Getting married in November.
I should blog but I don't. I do post some of my poetry on Facebook and MySpace. I don't have a favorite blog. If I have time to read stuff on the internet, it's usually my friends' blogs or e-mails.
