Recently I was invited to shoot a wedding at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco with another photographer. Photographers often do this so we can learn from one another and develop our style. Mike and I met years ago and have admired one another’s work as well as refer one another. He is a good collaborator like me, so shooting with him was seamless. Mike’s partner in business (and life) shortly thereafter gave birth to a baby boy. (Aaaahhh)
It’s unusual for me to step into a wedding day not knowing the bride and groom but it worked quite well because everyone was organized and so friendly. This is one of the days where you come home thinking, “I’m glad I said yes”.
