even though the models show up really early to go through a run through, they can't really slip out to do some shots as hair and make up are done at random times during the day. additionally, it was pretty cloudy and windy that day, basically mother nature nixed our outdoor shoot.
so even though out planned shoot didn't happen (it'll probably be rescheduled should she be back in edmonton or if i'm in vancouver), i still had my gear with me. time to bust out the photojournalistic, behind-the-scenes, "practice for a wedding day preparation" photoshoot:

if there's anything to be learned from this day (whether you're photographing, co-ordinating, travelling etc), it's to make the best out of any situation and be prepared for anything, no matter how much planning goes on prior to the event. being spontaneous is a great trait to have!
