Saturday on Facebook, LUMIX Ambassador Jordan Bunch posted the image above with one simple statement:
Amazing wedding tonight! So grateful to our clients for trusting us with their weddings
during this Wild time.
There are venues and then THERE ARE VENUES! The wedding was held at Hidden River Ranch in Lampasas, Texas. I love seeing a great venue getting back into the swing of business.

Over the last week, at least six friends, who are photographers, told me they're starting to shoot again. Nothing major, just a nice trickle of business starting to flow. So, as much as I love the image Jordan shared above, I appreciated what he wrote even more.
The statement made through a photograph of a couple dancing in an open field is a story all its own. No big receptions, just proof of a couple's love, admiration and trust for each other...and their photographer.
Yes, that's a sappy way to look at it, but over the last few months, we've all had moments when hope and faith were buried under the stress of the pandemic. I also appreciated Jordan sharing the image on Facebook. Now, more than ever, social media is our best link to keep in touch. It's also where I spend the first hour of every day.
Jordan Bunch needs to be on your radar, along with the LUMIX Ambassador team. This group is one of the most diverse and creative teams in photo, and all the ambassadors are sharing great content. Check out the LUMIX Photographers Facebook page too - there are always great conversations and imaging being shared.
About the image above, Jordan wrote:
My new favorite way to shoot portraits is to use the long end of my 70-200 2.8 as a wide lens. So I rack the lens out to 200mm or near it and then scoot WAY back. This gives me amazing compression and gorgeous bokeh on a composition that otherwise 99% of photographers would take with a much wider focal length.
