What a tough gig!

Photography is TOUGH! Yesterday Husbie and I photographed a friend of a friend's wedding (maybe another friend in that connection, I forget) and it was so beautiful but I could not have prepared myself enough!


Today my body aches a little in weird places, my 'trigger' finger hurts, and I had the vividest and busy dreams ever. Looking at things all day through a camera, makes your brain go in overdrive.

But, thank GOODNESS for comfortable shoes! I wore my new bolero, a black frock and ballet flats and it was the WISEST decision I've ever made in my entire life. For, my feet only hurt today, just a bit. If I'd worn heels, even small ones, I would have fallen over or would never have been able to wear them again. Having said that, I have just soaked them in salts! I ran around the ceremony crowd probably 18 times.

Husbie took some amazing photos (so SO many gorgeous ones!), but I'm really proud of the 'detail' shots I got. The flower above was one of the groomsman's lapel thingies, and I'm so happy with a billion other shots too! FYI, I used my Lumix GF1 (by Panasonic) all day, using about 30 gig of storage and 3 batteries (I had time to charge one of my two batteries later). The bum bag worked a treat (a little bag attached to my belt, that blended into my skirts) as I had my hands free to just have the camera ready at all times.

By the way, if you are on the lookout for a new camera, when I called one of the many Melbourne camera shops this week to buy a second battery and chip, they said Panasonic is bringing out the second version of my camera, a Lumix GF2, and there will be deals/lens packages going when they come out. I can't recommend my Lumix enough, and I do stress I am not being paid in any way to tell you this, I am an independent blogger and like to experience things myself. Anyways, hit me up if you need more info, I don't tend to gush on about my technology!

Hoping you had a darling relaxing weekend and talk to you laterz! xoxo

  5. Lovely pic! You're not wrong about it being a tough gig. I do some freelance photography and once did a wedding, by far the toughest gig I've ever done, everything that could go wrong, did. You live and learn though! Does your hubby have a website?
