The day my camera broke.
It has happened before – Canon 5Ds are notorious for having a particular mirror come “unstuck” during use. The last time was in February 2008 right before our wedding when I was in San Francisco photographing an engagement session. The usual jokes about “we broke your camera… for real!” do apply, but those are usually reserved for grandpas as wedding guests flirting with the photographer.
Anyway, I was in Jamaica Plain MA with Brittany and Mike and their new adorable Linus (what kind of dog again guys?) on a BEAUTIFUL perfect Sunday afternoon. We were about 10 minutes into the session when aforementioned camera broke. Luckily, I was able to do a few more images with Brittany’s Canon rebel before rescheduling to complete the shoot on another day.
