Yesterday, I did a wedding shoot. Oh, yes I did. Six hours of running, fluffing dresses, tilting heads and arranging bodies. I made it home last night around 10:30, parched, completely exhausted...and hooked. It was like driving to 7th street and offering an addict a gallon sized baggie of crank. I loved it.
