In March, I had the opportunity to second shoot for wedding photographer Athena Kalindi (@athenakalindi) at the Miner's Foundry in Nevada City. (Did you know Nevada City is a destination wedding location? I had no idea!)
I'd never been inside the foundry before, but after seeing it online and in person, I get why it is booked nearly every weekend for weddings and events.
Not only is the inside of the venue special, but there are a handful of cool exterior walls -- perfect for photo ops of the bride and groom.
A big thanks to Athena for allowing me to shadow her and shoot with her. She was so kind and patience, and unbelievably generous with her knowledge of wedding photography. (I now use my DOF preview button to quickly and easily change my focus settings, thanks to her!)
I'll be second shooting again in June -- this time up in Tahoe.
