The truth is, sometimes an awesome shot you come across on Instagram or somewhere online that makes you go “how on earth did they get this” boils down to… luck. Yes, luck is ever so present in photography and not just wedding photography. It can happen to all of us, regardless of how experienced or successful we may be.
Sometimes we are lucky, other times not. In this case, we had absolutely no idea that there was a confetti canon. We really wish we knew that they were going to shoot it off just because we would have liked to have been even more prepared, but here – luck was on our side.
We were firing away at the first dance and through the corner of our eye we saw the confetti shooter in position, aiming, and then firing. It was at that moment that we jumped back to get into a better position to capture how the confetti fell over our couple. It was as much of a surprise to us as it was to our couple.
