From this experience I learned that if you want a photographer on short notice don’t leave an out of country phone number to be reached on. It took me over an hour just to get my phone to be able to call out of the country to contact the patiently waiting Richard and Anna. I can’t blame them for using his cell as a contact … it is what I would have done but who would have known it would take me over an hour on cell phone tech support for it to be up and running! I couldn’t believe how difficult cell phone companies make it. Then again I will be grateful the next time someone from the Czech republic steals my cell phone and decides to make like E.T. It was Wednesday morning and I was actually on a date with Dani at the time when an odd number called me. I didn’t answer nor would I unless it was the kid sitter since I was busy wooing and romancing over sandwiches at a local bread shop. Love the bread for sure … though I couldn’t find a web site that last link is the best I could come up with – hope someone enjoys it.
OK so anyway … I check my messages and Richard from England called and asked if we could photograph his wedding this afternoon! WOW. I had an engagement shoot scheduled but Cosette was free so she was on the job. I showed up to meet him and his beautiful bride to be … by the way “court house” in downtown phoenix means very little I found out. There are at least 12 I think! Funny thing is Richard and Anna found out the hard way as well. Lots of running …
As it turns out they contacted the talented Jeff Calbom with Anderson Image. Jeff was booked and sent him our way. Thank you sir! You missed out on a spur of the moment fun couple. We’ll take them!
