I forgot to mention in my previous post that this is my first wedding where I had to work in the rain. It was interesting because nobody else seemed to mind the rain except for maybe me. That’s probably because everyone was from New York. I’m from Los Angeles, and rain doesn’t come around very often.

I was talking to a guy from the Midwest at a wedding I shot recently, and I asked him what the biggest difference between California and the Midwest is. He replied, “When it rains in California, nobody knows how to drive.” I agree. Californians aren’t used to rain. It’s almost alien to us. “Water falling from the sky? What is this?! What does this mean?!”

Yet another first for me at this wedding was this was the first time photographing a 500 person reception! That officially marks the largest reception I’ve ever photographed in my career. I think in a normal situation photographing a 500 person reception plus the bridal party in the rain can be a pretty stressful ordeal, but Allison and Hok, the bridal party, and the other two photo/video guys were soooo easy to work with and a lot of fun. I love them all.

And if I had to guess, I think New Yorkers know how to party hard. Take a look at these reception photos.
