I often try to discourage beginners from taking on doing weddings by themselves because of the equipment and skill needed to give the bride and groom what they deserve. I tell people that this is not a place to learn and that it happens once and never again... no 2nd chances. I ask them to leave ego at the door and if they care about the couple, let a professional do their job. What happens when you have a photographer with more than beginner abilities? Someone that's taken a few classes and perhaps even had a few pictures published? Well, the results are pretty ugly. What I appreciate about this man is his honestly to not only face reality, but to write about it. Maybe this aritlcle will save some bride and groom the pain of needing to look at crap pictures all their life. I sure hope so. The article can be found HERE. Enjoy the read... I know that I did, because it is well written and pretty much says it all... complete even with a few comparison shots.
