Labor day? Psht... no time for a holiday when I have this in the pipeline...Pretty sure if these guys weren't dressed up as bride and groom, you wouldn't have known they were getting married... talk about laid back..

Though I could do without the broken lens (yes guys, it did break! did I hide it well?) and also do without walking into a pole at full speed with my head (yes guys, I said it was my shoulder, but no, it wasn't)...

The first was the fact that I had only spoken with Jana and Jeff through email before we showed up......thankfully they turned out to be super laid back and a great couple, and we sailed through the day very painlessly indeed. It's definitely not something I would like to roll the dice on on a weekly basis however. Of course my public face via the website works as an excellent filter to quickly get rid of people with zero sense of humour or who would otherwise make things difficult, but it definitely served to remind me of that fact. Secondly, it was a reminder that it's not just churches that force me to shoot in bad light. Hotel Metro is a lot of things, but photographer friendly, for me at least it isn't. The problem as always is to balance the ambiance of the venue with getting good ...
