Of marriage, that is! We woke up at 4:30 AM to make it to Central Park at 5:45. Wanted to catch the soft morning light as well as have the park empty. It was great...and the best thing is that it was her idea!
Funny story about the tiara...we couldn't find the original one from the wedding (which was really fine and elegant and pretty) but there was this other one we found with the wedding stuff so we used it. We finally remembered after the shoot that it was the one I bought her as a joke from Cinderella's Castle in Disney World years ago! And of course we found the real tiara a week later at her parent's house! Oh well...when we do a ten year anniversary shoot I will wear a tux and she can wear the nice tiara!

Borrowed the Canon 24-105 mm f/4L from a friend to test out. I figured that after testing all the other L-series "walk around" zooms (tried the 24-70 mm too, that's for another post), it was the only one left. Of course I loved it, and I think it's the best balance of image quality, range, size, weight, and price. So now I am kicking myself for not getting it bundled with the camera and saving some change! Oh well...
Found a pretty model in my apartment and went for a walk while the sun was setting with just the camera and the 24-105 lens. It's sharp wide open at f/4, and any fears about shooting at night with f/4 were laid to rest too. Sweet...I found my next lens!
