Today I start a new series where I talk about the problems we face everyday as a wedding photographer. The industry has it's perks and honestly what other job has free cake every day you go to work? As every wedding photographer knows, it's a job that sometimes is over romanticized so I'm going to share some of the problems we tackle every day.
When these two told me how much they love beer and wanted to have engagement photos at Danny Boy Brewing in Carmel I knew I wanted to get a photo in the back where the magical elixir of the gods is brewed but knew it wouldn't be easy because if you don't know what you're doing, the risk of contaminating hundreds of gallons of beer is a very real possibility. When we showed up the brewers were done for the day and had gone home. I was crushed but moved on. Several minutes later we started talking to a man enjoying a beer at the bar. It turned out he was the owner, Kevin! Normally I wouldn't have imposed but I knew this was a rare opportunity so I had to ask! Kevin said we could absolutely go in the back and get the shots we needed! The day turned out to be a major win all because I decided to break out of my comfort zone and simply ask!
