I only have one, scheduled for May 8th. I'm a bit rusty after the mandatory year off. I'm going to the rehearsal (as is usual) just to re introduce myself to my equipment.

With all the lockdowns, restrictions and the lag and inconsistencies in vaccination rollouts in Canada, nobody is making long-term wedding and other social event plans as yet. I have done a few very small private affairs but nothing substantial. Not much anyone can do with masks and all the protocols. A few inquires for next Fall have come in but the plans are still tentative.

It a good thing that my mainstay is commercial work, which hasn't slowed significantly. down in the industries I serve.

Weddings for me are a matter of muscle memory so I am keeping in shape by trudging around with heavy gear at excavation and construction sites and big noise factories. I'll be happy when I can make romantic images of pretty brides, rather than trying to glamorize front loaders, cranes, giant shovels, big brawny construction workers, and big-ugly trucks!

5 planned, 1 executed so far (Traditional and Nigerian in back to back days). All have big plans and backup plans for 25max in case lockdowns. 2 / 5 are push outs from last year.

The wedding went off as planned. Outdoor ceremony on a pretty, cloudless day. Bride=white gown. Bridesmaids, Groomsmen and Groom=Black tuxedos/white shirts. Groom (black tuxedo - in shade) Bride (white dress - half shade with a very harsh shadow from her eye to her ear.) It is what it is. I warned them.

Reception hall: Very dark. Very few windows. After the sun set, the camera had difficulties with focus. Had to turn on focus assist (hate that).

But, at the point of the "Father/Daughter Dance" (that tears me up each and every time) and the lower back ache appears I remember why I love shooting weddings. It's only one of two times that extended families gather. This time it's joyous. The other, it's sorrow.
