It’s not often I go to a wedding as a guest, I’m normally there as the photographer, however I was invited to my friends wedding, it was a beautiful event and I got a few good shots. The pressure that is lifted when you’re taking photos for fun rather than in an official capacity. Enjoy.

As a parent I taken a lot of images and let’s face it i’m paranoid about loosing them. I remember a quote, “It’s not a backup if the images you’re wanting to save are in a different folder on the same drive”. Makes sense really, if the hard drive fails you’ve still lost the images. I don’t know about you, but i’d be gutted.
With that in mind, i decided I wanted backups, and being paranoid decided to go over the top, but lets face it better to be safe than sorry. Here’s what i’ve done, don’t get me wrong, it’s probably not the best way, but it works for me.
Ive only got a laptop at the moment which ihas a 128GB SDD, i use a program called SyncTool, to backup my files to my windows server. The NAS drive then runs it’s own internal backup to pull the files from the server to it’s drives, these are mirrored. So let’s see, laptop, windows server, then nas, that’s data on 4 drives. Ok it’s in the same location so I still have a similar issue to having it on one disk in that if there is a fire, i’ve lost the lot. This is where the USB comes in. Once a week I get the USB drive from the secret offsite location, attach it to the nas and back that up. It’s then returned which means I do have a backup OFFSITE.
I also use smugmug to display my images, if i wanted to I could upload them all to that for even more redundancy. It does sound like overkill, but lets face it these are all my images since the birth of my kids so that’s 4 years and over 300GB of data I certainly do not wish to loose.
Last week I had the privilege of being the second shooter at a wedding, it was a wonderful day, here are a couple of images from the shoot. I’m learning more and more about weddings and starting to like them more and more.

Trash the dress is an event that you can do anywhere, at the end of the day all it involves is models/decent outfits [that they don't mind ruining] and an environment that can be classed as trashy. In this case it was a car breakers yard near where i live. It can be a fun event, perhaps you should try your own. Here’s a couple of images, but if you want to see the rest, you need to go view my gallery
