I'm doing it again

Last summer, I looked to you for advice when my cousin & his fiancée asked me to photograph their wedding in October...

You all encouraged me to do it, and I'm so happy I did...
It was a fabulous learning experience!
These are just a few of my favorite shots from that day...










{more photos on my Facebook page here}

They were both thrilled with the way the photos turned out, and I'm still baffled that they included me to be such a big part of their day with such little (NO) experience...

BUT

Looks like I'll be doing it again!

Another cousin has asked me to photograph her wedding
THIS JULY!
Eek!

Although I do feel more prepared, and having been through it once I've learned a trick or two...
I'm just naturally nervous by nature and afraid I'm going to screw something up!

Luckily, I have signed up for a digital photography course that starts this week and runs for 5 weeks... and I'm hoping to get new camera before the big day as well.

I Will Be Prepared.

I'm going to kick this wedding's... you know what! Ha!

I know I have more than a few readers that are professional photographers, any tips again would be greatly appreciated!  Wish me luck!!

  4. Can't wait to see how they turn out!! If you are able to, I would pick up a 50mm. If you can afford it go for the 1.4, if not the 1.2 is only $129 or you can probably find a good price on ebay or craigslist.

    Its a great portrait lens. Its what I use 90% of the time.

  13. Love the B&W one of them together on the road! Good luck on your new assignment and Kudo's to you! I have only shot one wedding and I didn't do any of the posed shots as I was second shooting so I am not a lot of help. I know I loved my 75-300 lens because it helped me get great shots without disrupting or distracting in any way from the ceremony itself. :)
