Like him or not, Mark Zuckerberg has become wildly successful with the social media giant, Facebook. After the IPO hit Wall Street, Zuck surprised his friends and family with an unannounced wedding to his long time girlfriend. His photographer Allyson Magda was caught off guard by the switcheroo of events, but according to Forbes, was able to keep it all together despite the craziness of the day.
In case you didn’t catch the full story, Mark Zuckerberg had informed his friends and family that the event they would be celebrating was a surprise graduation party for his girlfriend Priscilla Chan, when instead the guests were surprised to find that they were actually attending a wedding between Chan and Zuckerberg.
“It was a surprise for me too!” Magda said.
“Since it was such a surprise, I didn’t exactly have a lot of time to digest the facts,” she said. “But then I started thinking: they hired me for a reason, and so I simply need to do what I do at every wedding.”
You have to admire her ability to adjust to the situation. In the modern day when photographers are constantly undervalued, it’s good to see that when you hire a quality professional, they get the job done no matter what.
