Just saw that this guy charges a minimum of $5,500 for a wedding so can afford to fumble once in a while.

An unmentionable part of me puckered when I saw him toss the camera in the air! I still keep the strap wrapped around the neck or arm when I'm shooting.

Money something a lot of us could use! in my luck I would have pieces of camera every where! But those are some great shots... I would prefer to use a balloon with the camera intact for safety...

That was scary. But the $5000 for a wedding I dont think was unusual. My daughter got married in Atlanta some 8 years ago and when we flew out to help with the arrangements we found photographers then charging those prices. Needless to say when we looked at them we took one high end and one who was reasonably priced. Both did very good work but me daughter chose the reasonable priced one because she got on with him and he was willing to work with her and saw no problem in getting the pictures online so we could see them in UK when we got back.
