Wedding photography can be a roller-coaster of ups and downs.
Here’s one way to tell if you’re having a good day:
Leave a brand new Nikon 20mm f/1.8 lens laying on the ground during the park photos. Have it found by a random passerby who proceeds to jump into her car, drive in the general direction she thought the limo went, spot the bride’s dress while she’s having her photo taken in the garden of the banquet center, pull over and return the lens.
Yes, someone found a $1000 lens sitting on the ground – then tracked down the wedding party just to return it to the wedding photographer (me).
The whole experience left me feeling really awesome about the state of the world – and also feeling like I owe someone some serious karma.
