October 29, 2008 was a special day for me. This was my first time meeting and shooting with International Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer Joe Wong. Similar to tagging along with Margaret for the first time for Shayne and Daniel’s wedding, my heart was filled with more excitement and anticipation because I will be tagging along with a photographer I have never worked with. Will they be mean, will they even let me shoot, will I even be allowed to experiment. Needless to say, Joe is a great mentor and friend and based on past posts I still have the pleasure of working with him.
Reliving Marie and Patrick’s wedding through my photos was nice. It reminded me the importance of working with the right people. I have never met Marie and Patrick before and yet, when I show up on their what is probably one of their most important days of their lives, they treated me like thier own. I was privellaged to be able to set a couple of shots of my own and they trusted me with whatever I asked of them photographically. This trust transcended through the photos and as a result this has got to be the best wedding I have ever had the pleasure to photograph, even if I was just tagging along. this is my favorite image of the day.
