A couple weeks ago we got a call from Canon. They had a new camera coming out, and they wanted us to give it a test drive. Sounds exciting right? But, having a camera before it’s announced, not being able to take it outside with any labels showing, and needing to be ultra top-secret certainly has its pressures. Nonetheless, we felt so lucky to get that call and were just waiting for the right oppurtunity to see what the camera could do.
Enter JC + Esther.
If I had to choose one word to describe these two it would be, without a doubt, organic. The dress Esther chose to wear was made entirely by her aunt Norma. Not only did she make the dress, she also helped Esther get into it on her wedding day. The beer at the reception was one of JC’s home brews. Their cakes stood atop towering stumps, their place cards set amongst a tray of grass, and the present JC got for Esther was unmistakeably original and very organic. All of this, and I haven’t even got to their so very touching vows.
Armed with two pre-production 7ds, I don’t know if I was quite prepared for all that I would experience that day. I’ll start with the imagery from the 7d, their highlights film, and follow up with some of our first impressions later in the week. If you’re interested in more technical details, follow the link to vimeo for a complete write-up.
Sorry for the tech speak at the beginning and ends, Canon asked us very nicely to share that with you since it is a pre-production camera.
