My Assistant

Usually, when I shoot a wedding, either my sister Rebekah or Heidi assists me as a second shooter.  Well, they were both busy during Kent and Holly's wedding, so even though I didn't have a second shooter, my roommate, Leah, assisted me!  She was awesome.  She carried cameras, lenses, a reflector, and whatever else I tossed at her.  She dusted snow out of hair, off suits, and fixed dresses.  She even shot some pictures of the first look!  So, I thought I'd post some pictures of Leah's work in action!

This is Leah brushing suits and hair off! As you can see, she's also holding a bunch of things in her arm! Poor girl...I warned her before, "I'm really going to make you work if that's okay!" She said it was okay. :)

These pictures crack me up! The night before the wedding, I gave Leah a crash course on how to focus on a moving subject.  This is me acting like I'm Holly seeing Kent for the first time! :)  Wouldn't I make a lovely bride?!...don't answer that. :)

Notice Leah shooting the first look!!! The picture on the right is me getting my lighting using Leah as my subject!

Leah, you were awesome!!! Thanks girl!

I'm not suprised-- that Leah is a special gal.

And WOW their reception hall and the whole weekend just looked like a magical wonderland from the few pictures I have seen on fb and elsewhere. How fun!!

P.S. Your "resolving to do better post" makes me smile and I tOtAlLy relate! :)

leah looks so cute in your "light testing" picture. Leah, even though you live in our basement, I never see you! We need to start exercising or something again because I miss you!

and Tam, I'm guessing if you were a bride you wouldn't be wearing that! I have no doubt you'd be a gorgeous bride.
