Okay, so it’s Saturday evening… on the Eve of Gustav.
I just finished shooting Tara & Eric’s amazing wedding this afternoon. My heart has hurt for them and their big day since Thursday, but there wasn’t reason – their day was still beautiful and amazing. Yes, they did have guests – several, in fact! So despite many tears and stress beforehand, I truly think today was still everything they’d imagined it to be.
As of now, even with evacuations in place and SWLA starting to look more like a ghost town by the hour, I have a wedding in Liberty, Texas next weekend. Ariel and her family have left for Austin, while we’ll be leaving tomorrow for Rusk, Texas, a little town in between Dallas & Shreveport.
If you curious to know how back ups and evacuations are handled with my terabytes of images – they’re okay! We’ve always taken the means to backup and archive everything three times on three different types of media. While I cannot take the hundreds of DVDs I have, I AM taking my tower, as well as all of my hard drives, including the “big boys” that have archived everything for 2007 and 2008.
So, everyone, be safe! Take care. And I’m sure we’ll all be back within a week working on getting back to a normal life! 🙂
