Sal and I started our studio five years ago when I knew nothing about photography or shooting. I began by carrying Sal’s bag for all his shoots. I had to memorize what lenses were what, where they went and how to track what memory cards were used. I learned to watch for when Sal needed me from across the room. We came up with hand gestures for certain lenses, memory cards, and flashes so he could signal what he needed and I could quickly bring it to him.

The more shoots we had the more I understood the process of Sal’s shooting style. I learned that he always used a 50mm 1.2 lens to shoot the bride getting ready. To shoot family pictures at the altar he always needed a 24-70mm 2.8 lens, a flash and a battery pack.
