I was contacted the day before, to shoot this wedding. The original photographer called the bride as she was going to the rehearsal, to cancel her services for the next day. Needless to say, it was quite a shock to the couple and their families. Now, I don't want to make it sound like it's all about the photography, and nothing else matters, but... um, well, it kind of is. So much planning, preparation and investment goes into a wedding, and the last thing a bride wants to hear as she's happily going to rehearse for the biggest day of her life, is that "I'm sorry, but I can't shoot your wedding, TOMORROW..." I can't imagine ever, ever doing that to a bride. A professional always has a backup plan, including equipment, and a backup photographer, in case something unforeseen happens.
Fortunately, I was contacted. It was very late notice, but I jumped at the opportunity to shoot a wedding at Hiwan. Although I had never met the bride, it turned out that she is a nurse at the hospital where I worked in the finance department. Kind of a small world.
The concept of giving away his beautiful daughter was a tough one to accept for the father of the bride, but all in all, it was a wonderful wedding. They got married right on one of the tee boxes. Hiwan was everything I'd always imagined it to be. Here are a few random images from that day...
