The SanDisk products allow me to capture quickly and they’re extremely reliable.
I never have to worry or even think about whether I’ll have a successful capture or not—
I know I’m going to get great images without any kind of issue.
The next event. These days, my focus is people. So, in addition to photographing weddings, I photograph everything that comes after that. Families, children and anything related to people.
Good question! The Best, Easy! The time I photographed a 94 years old great-grandfather jumping on a bed (it’s a long story). I was photographing a large extended family the day after photographing the last remaining granddaughter's wedding. To get the great-grandchildren to loosen up and enjoy the experience, I asked each of them to jump on the bed in my hotel room (where we did the family session). After the third great-grandchild jumped on the bed, great-grandfather took off his shoe took off his shoes, climbed onto the bed, and jumped. This was THE most awesome experience! It made the entire family cry with laughter. Truly a once in a lifetime experience.
The worst experience was the death of my 19 years old daughter shortly before an older sister's wedding... there was an earthquake (yes a strong earthquake during the wedding ceremony) and that made it very difficult.
Don't price your services according to what YOU can afford. Best advice I ever got!
That is my favorite part! I love the unpredictability.
