Is it an elopement or wedding if the photographer is also the minister?
Every now and again I get asked if I know a minister who can officiate the ceremony. Well, I know myself as much as I can, and I happen to be a man of the cloth as well as a photographer. Well, how can you do both? they ask. The answer is simple: one camera on a timer going off every five seconds and a second camera around my neck making me the second shooter/minister. I write a sermon customized to the couple and I put on my best wedding day garb. This wedding in Bishop was especially moving. We even had a reception and first dance afterwards. And my dog/assistant got to come along.
