It’s quite amazing how many weddings take place in Charleston on any given weekend. So it’s not uncommon for me to bump into another wedding party being photographed by one of my friends. Last weekend I ran into my good friends and fellow photographers Joey & Kasey of Olive Productions at White Point Gardens! I saw them first and squeezed off a couple frames before Joey got the drop on me. J

Yesterday evening I was “on walkabout” doing an Engagement photo shoot with one of my favorite couples EVER! We were just walking along, having a blast, and getting some cool shots…when suddenly on the other side of an old brick wall I could hear a camera clicking away. I peeked around the corner and who should I see by my good friend and fellow photographer, Nathan Bell of Richard Bell Photography! Nathan’s a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor…so we both immediately went into mock horror mode…like “hey man, what are YOU doing in MY shooting space?!?” Then we busted out laughing and introduced our couple to each other, and chit chatted for a few minutes before carrying on our separate ways. But before Nathan could get out of sight, I enticed his couple into this zany pose with him. It’s always fun bumping into friends while out shooting. J
My good friend and fellow photographer, Robbin Knight, was covering Lisa & Justin’s wedding with me last weekend. (www.chrisandcami.com/blog). Like me, he’s another big fan of using every trick of the trade, including wireless technology, to cover all the angles and get our clients something unique and different. So between us we had as many as 8 remote Nikon SB-800 strobes AND a remote Nikon D300 firing at the SAME TIME!!! The strobes were being fired via RadioPoppers and the D300 was being fired via PocketWizards.
For our bird’s eye view of Lisa & Justin’s Horah, Robbin used his 96” ShureLine pole, normally used to hold a remote flash, but that we had modified to hold my D300 with a 10.5mm fisheye. He triggered the camera with a PocketWizard, which fired the on-camera SB-800, which told the RadioPopper to fire all the remote SB-800s. Meanwhile, there I am in the crowd getting the “inside” view with my Nikon D3/14-24mm combo, triggering the same remote flashes via a RadioPopper mounted on my SB-900.
It’s always so much fun working with Robbin. We had a BLAST!!! Plus Lisa & Justin couldn’t have been more fun to work with…
