The Wedding Photographer

There is something intriguing about taking pictures of a photographer. This sweet lady was holstering a little 35mm camera during the ceremony while I was using the big guns (Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 80-400mm lens). At one point I was right next to her and she leaned over and whispered “I’ll take one of each” – that is, a print of each photo I was taking.

You might think I would be intimidating with my fancy-schmancy camera gear, but truth is I was saying “excuse me” and trying to stay out of her way.

This photo was taken during the reception while she was taking pictures with the disposable cameras that the wedding couple dispersed on the tables. Now that’s what I call a wedding photographer!
