nice cans!


***COMMENT ON THIS POST TO HELP FEED THE NEEDY***


HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!
today is all about sharing with the ones you love, and maybe even a few people that annoy you.
it's a time for reflecting on all that is good in your life and being thankful for the blessings bestowed upon you.
this year, as we reflect on our blessings, we want to continue the tradition started last year by our friends and neighbors to the north, chris + lynn.
a wiser person than i once said that no matter how bad you think you have it, there's always someone out there that's worse off than you are.
truer words were never spoken.
with that in mind, here's what thanksgiving is all about charlie brown.
for every comment we receive on this post between now and midnight on thursday December 3rd (extended to the 10th! woo hoo!) we will donate one can to the San Diego Food Bank.
that's it.
one for one people. how's that for an exchange rate?
help us rename our city this week to can diego.



sure you've heard of turkey stuffing, you'll probably even enjoy some today, but have you ever heard of david's short-stuffing cans? delicious, and hilarious.
as awesome as they are, these are definitely NOT the kind of cans we are talking about :) we mean canned food items. yummy canned food items. sorry, they will ALL be david-free.
(sidebar: we love halloween!)





chris + lynn already put the can in canada,
so be sure to drop by their blog to give them some love and see what we mean when we paraphrase from bob costas and say...
as photographers they are one of a kind,
as people they are one of the kindest.
on a side note, we'd be extra stoked if all of our san diego wedding photographer friends also jumped on the can-wagon and did the same thing on their blogs. for that matter, anyone with a blog can do this. together we can all put a big dent in hunger this holiday season.
if you prefer not to do your own blog post but still want to help us put hunger in the hurt locker, feel free to donate to your own local food bank. no matter where you are in the world there is someone nearby that needs your help.
thank you everyone. of all the things you could be doing right now, we are thankful that you chose to stop by and share some time with us.





thank you for visiting our wedding photography blog
please also take a look at our portfolio.
contact us by phone at 858.663.3283 or email david@ohanaphotographers.com

I have been blog "stalking" you for a long time now. As an avid reader and HUGE fan, I figured this would be the perfect post to comment on. What a fantastic idea! And now that I have your attention.... You guys are so freakin' talented. I am a Jersey Shore girl and am seriously debating on having a West Coast wedding (whenever that maybe) just so Ohana can photograph my wedding. I am always blown away by your pictures no matter the occasion or venue. Your eye for and love of photography is astounding. I sincerely hope I will be able to be lucky enough to be captured by you. : )

I'll comment if you promise to never post that picture ever again. I've tried pouring bleach into my eyes, but it hasn't worked. And now I'm pretty sure that I'm unable to have any more children. At least I'll have a new image to think of when I'm trying to last longer.

PS - You rock for doing this. Love you guys! ; )
