Doug & Sarah Infante – Newport Beach Boat Wedding

It was an early Saturday morning when I got an emergency call from a fellow photographer who double booked two wedding for the same day and needed me to fill in for a Cruise Wedding!  Well to make a long story short I had one hour to drive to Newport Beach from Fontana to catch a boat and photograph a wedding.   Well I made it under 54 minutes by cheating and using the fast track lane and was greeted by a grateful couple Doug & Sarah (now the Infante’s).  They were so polite and happy someone showed up to shoot the wedding, but they known nothing about me and were upset that the other photographer bailed on them – but after all was said and done they were so happy how beautiful the pictures turned out.  I must say the whole family and guests went out of their way to be polite and courteous.  It was certainly a blessed day!

Equipment used:  Nikon D700, SB900, Bounce flash card.
