The Knot is Tied in Moosomin

untitled-29

We had a super great time taking some wedding pictures for a fabulous couple in Moosomin a couple of weeks ago. Normally I’m second shooting for Susan at weddings, which I love doing. But on this wedding, I was the chief cook and bottle washer.  😉 It was really cool to be on the other side of the wedding coin, and by that, I mean editing the whole project. I normally (happily) leave that for Susan to contend with. But as I edited the photos and put them all together, seeing how the second shooter shots completely compliment the first is near magical. Both angles of events are covered. What one shooter misses, the other gets. And when you put it all together, it makes for such a better end product for the clients. It’s awesome! 😀

So here’s a few shots from Leighton and Brandy’s big day. I included a few BTS pictures of us in action too, just for fun. 😉


Competition

So we went up to the grand metropolis of Moosomin, SK last night to take in the Fireworks Competition. This year’s combatants were CanFire Pyrotechnics vs. Canadian Pro Importers & Distributors Ltd. We missed the show on Saturday night, so we don’t have anything to compare Sunday’s offering with. It was still super fun! Everyone always loves fireworks, especially when they are choreographed to music. 😎 Our experience involved screaming and/or puking children so it was doubly rich! 😯 But once we got over that, it turned out to be a nice night. 😀 Put the fuji x100s to work. I am always blown away by that little camera. It is so, so ideal as a walk around, do anything, take anywhere camera.

I played a bit with the fun Q menu and tweaked the contrast of some of these images to give them that crazy “over blackened art look”. But the skin tones in the color images are unbelievable. If I was lost on a desert island and I could only have one camera, it would be the x100s! 😎
