    So I was asked to be the photographer for a wedding in mid August. I was iffy about it because it's a terrible responsibility but this girl insited. So I braved it and tried out my first wedding photography experience.

    I look up to those who can handle weddings...man my feet hurt afterwards! :hail: I don't know if I could do another wedding.

    Here's a couple shots I have with my at the moment. Let me know your thoughts....again this was my first wedding:blushing:

    1. Bride's Maid getting her hair done.

    2. Ring bearer running down the isle.

    3. Another Ring Bearer.

    4. Wedding cake with play-mobile toys on top.

    5. First Dance. (have lots of these)

    Not too bad for your first wedding, congrats.

    Watch your highlights, the last three have blown out areas.

    Really good stuff, though I have to say that in #8 the bride actually looks to me to be bored with her new husband.

    Thanks. Glad I didn't get 'crap' as a comment ;)

    I'm quite depressed on the blown out areas. Darn...or should I say, opps?

    In #8 that was a pose. I just had the bride look away from the groom, sort of giving him the "cold shoulder". I was tryinig to make something different and semi artistic.

    Good work on your first wedding. Some of the photos are little soft, yet for your first attempt, i think you made up for it with composition. I like the fact that you didn't fall back on the traditional wedding poses which most of us have done our first time out. Nice work.

    I used my Nikon D50 with a 18-55mm for most pictures but did use a 300mm for some of the church pictures.

    I have lots of the typical formal pictures, mostly because the party wanted them, but I mainly focused on 'different' poses.

    Thanks everyone!

    I really like the close-up on the little flower boy!
    And the last one on the rails is funny and not quite what you usually see.
    This being your first wedding to shoot you did really well. I would not even know were to START to get good photos of a wedding!!!

    I like #10, #11, and #12. I'm a sucker for black-and-white. But watch your highlights, #10 appears to be a little blown out.
