Imagine you are photographing a wedding ceremony, and right as the bride begins to walk down the aisle, your camera breaks. It becomes completely non functional to the point where you can’t even turn it off. What do you do? Do you panic? Do you ask to stop the ceremony? Do you pull out your cell phone? Or do you simply break down and cry?
That is a real dilemma that every wedding photographer will eventually face, and it happened to me last April.
Can you tell in these photos when I switched to the other camera? Hopefully not, and neither could the couple. Kristen and Mike just celebrated their one year anniversary as well as the birth of their first child, so I finally feel comfortable sharing this story of what could have been a disaster.
