    Well, it's official, our own TPF poster, ACaldwell, is our assistant/3rd shooter.
    She has done a wonderful job from day one. Mike and I both were blown away by her natural eye for composition. We are very lucky to have found her.
    Some of the photos below are hers. Actually, some of hers our so close to our own, I'm not sure exactly whos is whos. She will be credited for those I know are hers and hopefully, if I mess up, she will jump in and let me know I messed up.
    Kelsey's was a hard one. Crazy family members who were also church and wedding officials. Bad coordination on their part.
    Horrible lighting. The worst. Catherdral with a candlelit only service with a spotlight ovet the couple. Talk about baptising Abby by fire. Whew!

    Another setback was the fact that one of the groomsmen, also a family member had a huge biopsy for skin cancer that morning.

    Zen,
    You will do a great job! And yes, eat. We are on our feet more than they are. It's in our contract. We eat, or we leave for an hour. :)
    Yeah, I'm sooooo proud of Abby. This was her first wedding, and of course it was a test of all the bad crap that can happen.
    But she did great. She didn't think she did, but she did. When I narrowed it down to my fave shots, hers were right in there.
    I'm going to start another wedding she worked on next week. I've taken a peeky poo, and she did some drop dead gorgeous stuff.
    She will be ready to go our on her own in notime!

    I think you guys did an amazing job! (especially considering the conditions!)

    And congrats on your new assistant! That is super cool!

    BTW, how old are they? They look 18! Or maybe I'm just getting old. lol.

    I'm not sure how old.
    My hubby and I make up nicks for all the brides and grooms so that we can keep them straight. There is ankle girl, princess, smart cutie, and a slew of others, but this couple, are the "16 year olds".
    She's a teacher, so I know they are older than that, but still......

    I guess here is as good as anyplace to ask Cindy (I don't want to offend any other wedding pros here but I think you and your husband are exceptional!). How hard is it really to cover a wedding with one camera? I ask because I've been there, and weddings aren't my "main thing", but the ones I have done I always say to myself, "If I were 2 or 3 people... I'd be more prepared." I assume you shoot them with 3 cameras [photographers] (but that's only speculation).

    I would love to get your take on the "dance you do [while shooting] any given wedding". What is your checklist like? (I think this is fodder for another post)

    Lovely.

    On the last one - #11, can you put a rose petal on her boobs instead of the funky black splotch that I assume is a rose shadow? Or remove it altogether?

    Very nice - congrats to Abby on her work as well.

    Hi Dpolston-I'll start a new thread about it and put it into the General Shop Talk section, ok?
    And thank you guys for the kind words. This wedding was a cluster from the beginning to end. Thank God for Abby.
    Not one of our best for sure, but we knew these were things we couldn't control.
    :)
