This was such a great day! My old friend and colleague Tom (with Sikora Photography) called me up to see if I could photograph Jane & Nate's wedding with him. His second shooter fell ill and he thought of me to replace her, since Tom and I had worked for many years together some time ago and we're confident around each other.
Thankfully, I was available, immediately got ready and went straight to St Mary's Cathedral to meet up with the bride. Lo and behold, this wedding ended up being a reunion of sorts for me! You see, Jane's family had hired Tom and I back in 2008 for Jane's sister's wedding too! Corinne (the sister) was one of Jane's bridesmaids and it was a blast seeing her again! So I essentially knew everyone there and it was even more fun to be a part of it! YAY :)
PS: This is part of what it means to be a professional photographer involved with other wedding professionals. We have backups! We work well together and can always support one another in case of emergencies. I'm so glad I got the call and was available to help! :)
