Finals are over. Wedding season is here. This afternoon I was at NatCam in Edina picking up extra cables when a man walked in from the adjacent Caribou Coffee and asked if I was a wedding photographer, and if so, if I was available in two Fridays. He said there was a couple in Caribou that just had their final meeting with their wedding photographer, who showed up “drunk as a skunk” and they were frantically looking for someone to pick up the date. I had to laugh because it reminded me of Soaps where someone collapses in a hospital and then some dummy is like, Is anybody a doctor? “Can you fly this plane and land it?” Surely you can’t be serious. [necessary Airplane! reference]
I felt for them, but I am already booked. And SO EXCITED to shoot this wedding coming up.
In preparation, I’ve been stocking up and organizing. Extra CF cards, a new lens bag, and a pair of pocket wizards to call my own.
