(After submitting to and getting the approval of the client, I remember her admitting that she was kind of disappointed when she saw the tiny camera I pulled out from my pocket during the shoot and doubted if I could come up with any usable images at all.)
There were also a few images in this collection where I used a film camera (Nikon FM2)...

Shortly after, we were able to get our first DSLR, an Olympus e-500 and North Haven Spa needed new images...
Though I don't go out there presenting myself as a wedding photographer, I've done a few weddings... here's one done with a single camcorder for the video clips and one DSLR for the photos(this was before the advent of DSLR cameras that can take videos, 2007)...
When shooting weddings, I try not to stage scenes, I try to stay out of the way and just capture what's there... my idea of documenting a wedding is for the participants - the bride, the groom, their loved ones - to be able to relive the moment when they look at the photos and watch the video, I want them to remember how that special day felt and not how the scenes were "made to look" beautiful...
