Here is a story. As you may know I was pretty ill a couple of weeks ago and I thought I might not be able to shoot a wedding. I had an outpouring of support and a bunch of photographers voluntered there time. Thankfully I was able to shoot the wedding and everything was ok.
I had a chance to return the Karma yesterday for my great friends at Imagine studio in Kansas City. Jenny, who when I first started shooting weddings was my assistant, had to go to the hospital for a kidney stone.
Here is the stoy. Shawn, her husband and my old drummer form Downtown Clown see very first post. Shawn is the one in the Gold’s Gym shirt.
Anyway, Shawn and Jenny own Imagine studios here in Kansas City. Check them out. Shawn is one of the best video guys I know and Jenny is a great photographer. Shawn called me Friday on his was of rushing Jenny to the hospital. He asked me if I knew anyone who could shoot their wedding that Saturday, yesterday. I told him I would check and thought to myself, I’m not doing anything and I need to get the kids back to see the grandparents. I booked a flight for Saturday morning and started shooting at noon. I was a little scarred at first when we first told the bride that her photographer was in the hospital and I would be the photographer for the day. She was very cool about it and we had a wonderful day.
I guess the moral to this story is if you are a wedding photographer make sure you have friends that are also in the biz. I love the fact that I was able to help out and I hope Jenny has a speedy recovery. I might be shooting their wedding for next weekend also. LOL
Shawn, thanks for calling brother. Anytime I can help anyone out, please don’t be afraid to call.
