AWESOME!, fuckin' awesome!.

So here it goes. My good friend Thierry and Lia had their ceremony and reception yesterday and I was the main and ONLY photographer for the entire day. At the beginning I was quite overwhelmed by the sheer amount of guests. Started with me arriving at the reception hall, scoping it out and taking some shots of the finished location minus the guests. I did a fair amount of still life on all the lil things, like those little bells, glasses, gifts, ornaments etc. Then I was off to the Palais De Justice to shoot the marriage ceremony. Met much of the family along with friends of Thierry and Lia. It went off without a big hitch, though there was a few hiccups. I haven't talked that much french in my life and it sure was an uplifting and eye opening experience. We took a complete group photo within the Palais de Justice and I found a great spot!, immediate family on the ground floor, friends on the stairs and escalator going up about.. 50 feet. I loved how these shots came out!, WEEEE!! ^_^. So from there we made our way towards old Montreal and took one last shot of family and friends. After ward's the immediate family of the Bride and Groom and myself went to Old Montreal and took several 30-40 shots in different configurations. I also played around with some Jumping shots!, would have loved to get the parents to do it but it's not their thing heh.

So for an hour I spent time with the Wifey and Hubby, 30 minutes of them posing and acting natural as I'm there capturing the moment. For the next 30 minutes they rode on a horse drawn carriage so here I am walking quite quickly along side of them shooting, and hopping in and out heh.  Anyways I gotta get back to sorting and working on these 800+ pics I took for that day.

End of Part 1

Looks really exciting. I know that shooting wedding is a lot of work and it doesn't stop at the end of the day. There's many post-processing work to look forward to.

I may just have to call you whenever I get married. :p

hehe pas une probleme, je ne sais pas, par ce que les photo's n'est pas moi, j'excuse mon francais heh. It will take me some time to process the good photo's which I rated and are at 172 photo's down from the 800+. I'll need permission from the Bride and Groom of course, but I'm sure they won't have a problem. But there are other people in the photo's too, from the party etc. I'll see.
