I went all the way to Los Angeles for my first wedding this year. Lory and Ryan got married in the gorgeous Hollywood Roosevelt stationed right next to the Hollywood Boulevard. The ceremony was held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. It is one of the largest churches I’ve ever worked at.
Everything is bigger in the United States as they say, but the work itself felt pretty much the same as what I’m used to here in Finland. The main difference was the number of people involved; in addition to me the crew included another main photographer with an assistant, and three people with video cameras. Each wedding presents its unique challenges, and this time it was to combine the different working methods of all of us.
