So an interesting thing happened to me at our last wedding....
I was attacked. Well, no, not really - but I did get a pillow thrown at me! We recently shot the wedding of Tanner and Brianna Brand at a country club in Norco, CA. It was a beautiful wedding - and, like all weddings, this one had several unique moments. One involved me directly. Natalie & I actually go to great lengths to stay out of the way and simply capture the moments at the weddings we shoot - we try and sort of fade into the background and just catch the memories. But we do interact with the people at the weddings. That's just unavoidable, and it's a lot of fun! One of the reasons we love weddings so much is, as corny as it sounds, a joyous occasion - everyone is just in a good mood! I also really like kids, and fortunately, they usually seem to like me (which REALLY helps on family shoots and such). At this particular wedding, shortly before the ceremony, I had spent a few seconds joking around with this little guy. I didn't think much of it - like I said, it was only like 15 seconds of "peek a boo." Literally that short - most people in the room probably didn't even notice. I then took my place for the ceremony - I stand at the end of the aisle near the altar while my wife stands at the back of the aisle (it helps us get better procession shots). Everything was going very normal until this little guy - the ring bearer - walked up the aisle. When he got near the front of the aisle, he fell. Not a huge deal, it happens more often than you might think. But when he got up, he had a very mischievous smile, looked at me, raised the ring pillow over/behind his head and charged...right at me! As quick as I could, I started backing up to the side of the ceremony area - still taking pictures. He took a few more steps then threw the pillow at me lol! It was a very cute and VERY surprising moment - one I don't think I will forget anytime soon! Everything was fine (the actual wedding rings are almost NEVER actually on the ring pillow, so this was a moment everyone was able to chuckle about!)
