it’s been so cold since christmas i haven’t managed to get out a whole lot, and i still have some images on my camera waiting for an upload but its just been editing central lately.
hope everyone had a good weekend!
scary thought for the day? 14 days until I am clued up with school for christmas (with only 6 actual class days left), 16 days until jamaica, and 136 until i’m finished for good. i know this stuff always ends up done, but hellooo towering workload! i proposed to my coffee over breakfast, we plan to be together until the very end.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say photographing a wedding like Kev & Holly’s is why I enjoy what I do. Now, I’ll totally admit I’ve done a few weddings in which afterwards, I thought the only way I would feel better would be by packing up my camera (lenses and all), putting everything in a bag, and launching it onto the side of a road next a cardboard sign saying “free” haphazardly propped up somewhere in it’s vicinity… My dues have definitely been paid on a few fronts. So when the day goes as fun as these two’s did, and you end up tearing it up (eyes wise and dance floor wise I might add) I can’t help but be genuinely jacked. There might be a bit of a negative “air” that blows around to admitting I am in fact a wedding photographer, but come on. Who else gets to hang out with people on one of the happiest days of their lives? That’s a lot of happy when the weddings start piling up!
You can’t really beat that.
I’ve been so busy with photos lately, in the past two weeks I’ve gotten to do two engagement sessions, a convocation session, and also my first smash the cake which was definitely a success! We also got the chance to do some night photos for May 2-4, and the stars were amazing. I find that it looks like their hanging off the trees.
After all of those photos and a good few BBQ’s (and food comas) later, it was an awesome long weekend for sure. Hope everyone else enjoyed the break!
just a few night shots i managed to get recently! i loved how the trees were backlit by the lights of corner brook, or the highway behind it. for much better quality, you can check these shots out on flickr here.
i’m also going to throw out there how a skidoo ride for a friday night is definitely not a bad way to go, at the risk of sounding extremely newfie! even though the groomed trails in certain areas still resemble more of a pretty uneven roller coaster at this point, and how i might still be feeling it a bit in my shoulders (a camera backpack full of two people’s gear definitely isn’t light) it was worth it for sure.
