I did not shoot this. My friend Jason shot it with his iPhone. Though it is hard to tell, I'm the one in the green shorts. This is what I do to balance out the hours of sifting through wedding footage.
Watching myself and Joseph sparring, I can see a few mistakes on my part. What didn't get captured was me getting the wind knocked out of me by two back to back kicks in the exact same spot. Possibly not my best day at the gym. I was a bit grumpy this morning, but a healthy Krav Maga session always improves my day.

I realize that I've just put two wedding highlight videos back to back. That just the way it is these days. My working life is all weddings (and a steady and hated diet of Bruno Mars and Black Eyed Peas).
The wedding was on Saturday, my co-worker drove home from Whistler while I organized the footage and handed it off to the boss, Eric, to edit for the following morning. Not the whole wedding. That takes far more time.
I grew up in French immersion, all the way through to finishing my underused university degree, and though all that French learning was largely unappreciated in Québec, these very attractive and friendly Québecois did take a liking to me.
I should thank my parents and Pierre Trudeau for being bilingual. This isn't the first time knowing just one other language has come in especially and unexpectedly handy.
UPDATE The bride sent the office the following testimonial:
