Christmas/White Elephant/Costume Bash 2010!
Some hilarious photos from our Newberg Photographers’ Second Annual Christmas Party. . . Joel Bock took the majority of these, but he’s swamped with album designing so I volunteered to blog it! [And thanks for hosting man!]
As it turns out, Rachel and Jon have an amazing dress-up collection, and they just happened to bring a big chunk of it with them to the party. We had a blast performing a cheese-tastic photo shoot in front of the fireplace.
I am SO thankful for these friends. Sadly, the wedding photography industry can be ridiculously cold-shouldered and competitive. I am thankful to have found this core group of amazing photographers who are so down-to-earth. Business thrives when you have a group of people who support each other! Okay, I’ll get off my soap box now. On to the pictures!
First up, Joel Bock and his brand new baby Kylan! I attribute the awesomeness of this photo to Rachel and Jon’s Mickey Mouse gloves, and Emily G’s mad camera skills.
Bryan and Leah Rupp
with baby Wellington. And a fez. Bryan’s flashing a little swimsuit crotch there. Scandalized?
Rachel and Jon

, Emily G
, and Myself.
I think I need to steel that hat. It would be perfect for winter wedding gigs, no?
son is also a Mexican wrestler. See?
This one just cracks me up.
Don’t let the foam guns fool you. Emily
Deer in the headlights!
The happy Bock family.
Captain and Son.
Joel, rockin’ the ‘stache.
The whole gang! We were missing a couple people for these photos [like John & Erin
!], but here we are.
Here is Emily, with her White Elephant prize, the classic “Trim & Twist: The Executive Exerciser.” Look at her go!
For my contribution to the white elephant gift exchange, I got one of those coffee mugs you can make your own photo insert for. The snowman heads are from our last Christmas bash where we did some “Joweling”.
Have a Jowely Christmas!
