Q: First Time Wedding Photographer

A: Do you know?

Now the story. I'm sitting down watching Netflix, when I realize I'm counting the time in between strikes. Finally I get hit with the inspiration! I grabbed my camera, bag, tripod, jacket, and zero skateboard then headed out. I climbed a wall across my main street that over looks the houses below, and sat up there for maybe 10 minutes before it started sprinkling... I jump down to get my jacket and climb back up! Not the moment after I get back up on the wall it starts to pour with a vicious wind at its side. Trying desperately to tie my foot around the ledge so the wind won't push me off and hold my camera up in focus all while trying to hold my jacket over my head and camera so I can keep taking pictures I was lucky enough to snap this shot without my tripod. Then I had to quickly pack up because the area I left my camera bag started to flood. The second I got my camera in the bag and zipped up in started to hail and I ran all the way home carrying everything xD *high five* for a water proof camera bag right? Hope you enjoy the shot :)
