well that was interesting.

I think today was the first time I have actually had a camera break as badly as it did, while shooting something as important as an engagement session. One of the internal mirrors actually fell off my shutter today after only hanging out with Niloufar and Amir for about five minutes! Talk about a bummer.

To be continued at a later date, obviously.

And a side note is that this is why everyone should have a wedding photographer who has adequate equipment... which means bringing two camera bodies to every wedding. Not that I wouldn't have had backup on me, but if this had happened in an actual wedding situation, the photographer would have had to to mug the nearest uncle with the expensive camera (you know the one I'm talking about - there's at least one at every wedding!).

Not bad for five minutes, eh? These two are so beautiful together.

Oh I have an uncle, I would have asked him to be my photographer if he wasn't retired.

Everyone has an uncle who has a big camera. It's kind of bizarre, actually. Why uncles and not cousins? My theory is that most people have nice cameras; men like to have and show off nice equipment; and when you're an uncle at a wedding you're important because you're related, but you don't have a role other than to show up for a photo or two and sit at a relative-designated table. Bringing your camera gives you something to contribute and also a chance to show off at the same time.

That's one of my theories, anyway. The "Uncle Bob Phenomenon" as we wedding photographers like to call it... can actually be a big problem for us depending on how aggressive and territorial your uncle bob acts.
