A couple weeks ago, we had the opportunity to assist and second shoot a wedding for the FABULOUS Justine Ungaro. We met her last November at Rob & Jenny's wedding in Puerto Rico. I had actually been following her photography blog for some time before then, so when I saw her at their wedding, I just HAD to approach her and tell her I was a huge fan! :) She was SO nice and patient while Drew and I drilled her with questions about photography and the biz. I love it when other photographers are willing to share their knowledge and wisdom with newbies! We learned a lot from her in those few minutes. Since then we've kept in touch...and she was kind enough to let us tag along with her to a friend's wedding she was photographing in New Jersey. Ashley and Tim are a beautiful couple! It was so great to see how Justine worked with everyone there...she was laid back and fun. We took a lot of mental notes and can't wait to apply some of the things we learned to our own weddings. Check out the GORGEOUS shots she took at the wedding HERE. Justine, you are one of a kind...thank you again for this wonderful experience!!
Here are some of the shots we were able to grab...

And one of the guests offered to turn the camera around on us...here's the shot he grabbed :)
By the way, if any of you photographers are looking to improve your business (or are just starting out), Justine and her mom (Diana Adams of Studio Diana) are holding a 2-day portrait seminar in February. I am scraping my pennies together with the hopes of attending, but I wanted to help spread the word because I think this seminar will be hugely beneficial to both amateur and professional photographers.
