Did everyone have a good weekend? Mine was lovely.

A friend of a friend contacted me about two weeks ago because the photographer she had scheduled for her daughter's wedding cancelled. She wanted to know if I'd be willing to do the photos, even though it was such short notice. Seeing as how I didn't have anything planned, I said OK.

Of all the weddings I've done (and I've done a lot) these were by far the best bride, groom and wedding party I've EVER dealt with. There was no whining about 'oh god, another picture' (even though the B & G PICK what they want in advance, this happens all the time) or wandering wedding party members or crotchety parents or feuding relatives. It was really a joy working with them. The church was pretty and well-lit (not always the case, I've found), the weather was beautiful, although a trifle windy and I ended up shooting eleven rolls of film. And yes, I'm an antique that still shoots film--digital just isn't crisp enough to suit me.

Sunday, I just lolled around in my jammies all day, doing laundry and stuff like that.

And now, alas, it's Monday. And it's supposed to snow today, WTF?

That sounds like so much fun! (The wedding part, not the snow part.)

It was a lot of fun. Assisted, I think, by the fact that I love weddings even if I don't really know the people involved.

But these were just the friendliest people--I told them the photog that cancelled really missed out.

So very true!

It's actually not unexpected-it always seems to snow in April when Easter is late.

I currently have rolling thunder boomers overhead...I guess I'll take those (and the rumored lightning) to your snow, bb.

It's beginning to look a bit cloudy here-I shouldn't wonder that we might have some boomers as well.

*smoochies, bb!*

I adore weddings. Fancy ones, casual ones, it doesn't matter.

I love catching those little candid moments that other folks might miss with the camera.
