Yesterday, I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Rob & Vicki. There are a few special connections to this couple. My wife has worked with Rob's mom. (We were even in the same Lamaz childbirth class) and Vicki's brother and my son became very good friends in high school. I would write more, but I need to get back to work processing all the photographs!

In what was called a "must-win" game for the Eagles this week, Brian Westbrook returned after missing last week due to injury. Lorenzo Alexander, right, of the Washington Redskins, welcomes him back to the turf.

Westbrook , like the whole team, started off well. He broke into the endzone for the Eagles' first TD and earned a pat on the helmet from WR Reggie Brown.

Rookie sensation DeSean Jackson breaks into a high step as he returns a punt for a TD vs Washington Redskins halfway through the second quarter.

Philadelphia Eagles CB Asante Samuel breaks up a pass to Washington Redskins (and former Eagle) James Thrash in the third quarter. Good play. Unfortunately, Samuel was flagged on the play resulting in a first down for Washington.

The defense pressured the quarterback effectively in the 1st half. From left, Trevor Laws & Brian Dawkins sack Washington Redskins QB Jason Campbell in the 2nd quarter. Campbell hung in there, however and took control in the 2nd half, leading his team to a 23-17 victory and costing me a container of cashews.

Late in the game, the Eagles still had a chance, if they could get their offense back on the field, but QB Donovan McNabb was left waiting on the sidelines hoping in vain for another chance as the defense couldn't stop Washington in the final minutes.
