fire engine love

Camera: Canon 20D 1/40 f/11  ISO 200     Lens: 17-40mm f/4.0 USM L
Light: 580 EXII flash camera left 1/2 power through a 33" shoot through umbrella triggered by freeXwire system

Another example of the benefits of having the Bride & Groom see each other before the wedding.  After getting all the portraits and group photos out of the way there was about an hour before the ceremony.  The Bride & Groom had expressed an interest in going to the town square where Ryan, the groom, had proposed.  As we turned the corner to see the square there was a HUGE flea market or expo, or something on the square.  There was not a square foot of space without a tent or a corn-dog.  We sorta looked at each other and had a now what look on our faces.  Ryan is a fire fighter so he suggested swinging over to the station for a few photos on the fire engine.  We did photos in the engine, in front of it, and of course .... in the bucket!!!  It was too much fun.  The couple loved it.  It was spontaneous.  There is no way on the face of this earth that a shot like this would have happened on the day of the wedding if they did all the photos afterwards!
