It's that time, weddings are in full swing!
A few weeks ago I assisted my fellow photographer friend Resa with a wedding in Tacoma. It was an adventure to say the least.
That morning I photographed a couple with their Harley... (THAT WAS FUN!!!) I'll be blogging those soon too. Well, on the last photo of the Harley session, my camera battery decided it was done. D! O! N! E! ... done. It was so weird. it just died on me. so I took it out and put it back in and tried some more. A few more images and done. We called it quits and I headed to the wedding. At the wedding, I took a few more photographs, and then the battery gave up on me.
New battery and I am in business. Handsome men, click... beautiful women, click... feeling the love... ceremony starts... click click click... then the flash stops working. WHAT??? seriously. mid ceremony. Really... of all the times, in the middle of a wedding ceremony??? UGH. Thankfully there was a lot of light in the church and I was able to continue sans flash.
After the ceremony... still no luck, can't make it work... I am responsible for photographing the reception... oh crud... well, thankfully I was borrowing a second flash from another photographer. Only problem... I left it at home, and here's the kicker, because I wouldn't need it. That was one of those lessons I've learned over and over again, yet for some reason it just hasn't stuck. I had said to myself... should I take the flash? Nah, I won't need it. OK... note to self... any time I say that in the future I AM DOING WHATEVER IT IS I JUST SAID!!!
There were definitely some characters at this wedding. I had such a great time in the few hours I got to share with this family.
Weddings are so awesome... frustrations and all!
