Found a Replacement Camera at the Last Minute

When Stacey and Michael asked me to fly to London and take pictures of their wedding, I was stoked.  I love capturing every moment of a wedding day, and it made it bitter sweet that it was going to be my friends that were tying the knot – I wanted to make sure their day was going to be perfect.

I checked and double checked everything on my list before I hopped on the plane and flew over to London for their wedding.  As many of you know, I am pretty intense when it comes to lists, so I made sure that I didn’t miss a thing.

At least that is what I thought was happening.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t how things turned out.

I had this uneasy feeling while I was on the plane, but I figured it was just nerves.  Taking pictures for a wedding on another continent was going to be something new for me, so I put the thoughts to the back of my mind.

It was a bad idea.

I knew there was a problem as soon as I picked up my luggage at the airport – my camera was nowhere to be found.

Panicked, I knew I couldn’t dwell on what had happened.  The wedding was in a few days, and I needed to have a camera for the wedding.  Frantically, I phoned around to find a company that offered camera hire London.

Thankfully, I was able to connect with the folks at LensLocker.co.uk and I was able to rent the exact same camera that I had back at home.  It meant that I could focus on taking great pictures at the wedding instead of trying to fumble around and learn how to use a different camera.

They were lifesavers – the wedding would have been a disaster if I would have been unable to find a replacement camera.
