I was shooting a family formal portrait after a wedding ceremony at a church in Arcadia, California. My backpack was placed 3 rows from the front of the pew, to the side, along with my assistant’s camera bag. An outsider came into the church and then knocked over a flower vase that was filled with water. Everyone, including the bride and groom, myself and my assistant watched the commotion after hearing glass shatter. I then told the wedding couple it was time to get back to the family formal portrait-taking, because the church lady was rushing us…we were short on time.
You know how superheroes appear out of nowhere when someone’s in trouble? Thien Dinh turned out to be a superhero photographer for an unknown Los Angeles wedding couple. He was in a casual walk around L.A. when he saw a couple in their wedding attire. The friend who was taking their photos forgot the battery for her DSLR, so she was taking the shots with a point-and-shoot camera. Thien approached them and introduced himself, took some photos, and they ended up with a couple of wonderful wedding shots. He shared the photos with DIYP, as well as the story how it all happened.
