Wedding Work

April 20, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

So, between my assistant (the lovely Sarah Lindsay) and I, we shot 2,110 photos at today's wedding, which amounted to approx 53 GB of data, and burned through one and a half EN-EL15 camera batteries (I had 4 on hand).  I used a Nikon D800E with an 85mm (f1.8G) prime lens, a Nikon D40x with a 10-24mm, and an SB-700 speedlight, while Sarah used her Nikon D40 with a Tamron 28-300mm zoom and an SB-400 speedlight.  Tons of photos to go through.  I will probably end up putting in at least 15 hours of work just going through and editing photos to get to the ~250 best shots of the day.  I've already put in three just uploading, scrolling through them all, and deleting some scrap.  For anyone who thinks this is easy, it most definitely is not.  But seeing the excitement of my subjects/clients/friends when they see the final product makes it all worth it.

Oh, and this is me taking a much-needed coffee break during the reception.  Photographers need sustenance, too. (Photo taken by Sarah with my Nikon D800E and 85mm).
