Sunday held a lot of “firsts” for me.  First time shooting a Jewish wedding, first time I photographed 2 weddings in 1 weekend, first time at The Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington and the most strange one for me, it was the first time I was a second shooter.  I was pretty excited to do it though.  No editing, just being there without the pressure and without having to be the “boss”.  Well, I had to admit something about myself for the first time as well.  I’m very a teensy bit controlling!!!  I quickly realized that if I’m not in control, I can’t relax!  I LIKE being the boss 🙂  Working with Shana was great, please don’t get me wrong…..but when you have your own business and are used to being the one who calls the shots it takes a while to get used to the fact that you can’t or should not do that!  I hate stepping on other peoples toes so Sunday was full of lessons for me, professionally and personally.

Thank you Ashley and Avi for having me second shoot your wedding.  I had a lot fun and everything was gorgeous.  Shana, thanks for being such a great “boss” , hope I was a good “employee”!!!

One last parting shot.      

Best. Cuff links. Ever.

“Nervous” was the word of the day.  Not because of cold feet, not because of unorganization, it was because from about 7 in the morning it was cloudy and dark.  Cloudy and dark and looking like rain…..and not just any rain, it looked like it was going to come down HARD.  I woke up thinking, “This is PERFECT!”  It was one big soft box with fantastic lighting for a wedding!  I just kept telling everyone it wasn’t going to rain and that was that.  The ceremony was held outside at the bride’s parents home.  It was like a fairytale.  The Casey’s truly out did themselves and everyone was amazed at all the work that had been done.  We had until about 6pm to finish up pictures and at 5 minutes to 6 it started spitting out.  I’d say we had a few people looking out for us that day 🙂

Janet and I had such a good time, thank you so very much Carly and Rob, for having us be a part of this incredible day for you!

This age is all about dicovery.  Discovering how the body can move, discovering all the faces and sounds you can make, discovering photographers’ cameras!
