Have you heard the song – “Live like you are dying” by Kris Allen?
If you go back through the blog you will find a certain 11/21/2009 wedding in which we did a Same Day Edit to it. I began to think about how we approach weddings. To understand what we do and why so many people are thrilled about their images is really in the way we capture it, have fun and really as if it were our last. We are in this business because we are passionate about capturing amazing images. It is what drives us. It was no more true on November 28th 2009 which was the last wedding of our year in 2009. We are now in a bit of a break (actually catch up time). On that day, the wedding of Jenna and Andrew was somehow different for me. I actually had the mind set that I was going to capture it like it was our last. To my amazement we rocked or as many would say today it was just “sick”. We turned out so many great images throughout the entire day and really I was so looking forward to the Same Day Edit we were going to attempt that evening. I had done a lot more preparation to make it much easier to complete. Well, time was not on my side. When the band said they had to go Bonnie looked at me and asked are you done to which I replied “no I have about 10 more minutes”. The band said they could not wait. As luck would have it the Band got caught up in a conversation about something important to them allowing us enough time to get it up and rolling. I was disappointed that I could only include the video portions from the day and actually apologized to Jenna and Andrew. Their reaction floored me. They thought I was kidding and as it turned out Jenna & Andrew’s SDE became the most watched and complimented video we had ever posted 2009.
So yes, in 2010 we will be shooting every wedding, portrait and senior session as if it were our last. If for no other reason than the rewards it brings surpass our every expectation.
