Lisa and I went down to Hyperion Espresso in Fredericksburg, Virginia last night to meet up with Geoff, my friend and second shooter. Being a perpetual gear fanatic like me, Geoff was eager to see my brand new Shootsac. I’ve only shot one wedding with it so far, but I am already in love. It gives me quick, easy access to all my important tools, it’s rather fashionable…..and most importantly, black! Ask any wedding photographer what they wear to weddings, and they will undoubtedly tell you “black on black” or some variation thereof. Why black you ask? Because we blend in, with the surroundings, with the wait staff, with the shadows! It’s especially handy when you have two photographers working…because really, you don’t want any pictures of Geoff or me popping up in your wedding album, trust me!
I had a wonderful July, and I am looking forward to all the things I have coming up in August and September. During August I will get to shoot at a gorgeous lodge in Michigan, document a Russian buy-out ceremony in Vienna, and party into the wee hours of the morning at a field party in Louisa, VA. I’ve got tons of engagement sessions lined up in-between, so look for regular blog posts in August. But wait…no one has booked you for August 16th, you say? That’s right, if someone doesn’t book me on August 16th, I might actually get a mini-vacation…and that’s not good for anybody’s health. So if you know someone in need of a last minute photographer, point them my way! As a last minute booking, I’m offering a 15% discount on any package for August 16th only. Act now before it’s gone (or before I’m forced to sit on my couch and watch “Platinum Weddings” all day long).
