    Every time I take my camera to a wedding, party, or other such event, I always come back saying "this is why I'm an outdoor photographer!" :P

    I have tremendous respect for those of you earning a living doing this kind of thing.

    That being said, I took my camera to a weddng recently...

    Not being the wedding photographer, I thought that gave me lattitude to try something a little different than I thought they would get from the hired gun. They seemed to like these...

    Nicely done! The tones give the pics an antique-y feel.

    You did better than I could ever do. I just do not have the lens for this.

    These are great.

    Thanks for looking!

    Joey - these were taken with the Sigma 28mm f/1.8. About $250.00.

    Dane,

    Well then, maybe you should.

    Nice work and well processes.

    I'm sure the bride and groom are thrilled to have another skilled interpretation of the most important day of their lives.

    These two examples are really lovely - you should reconsider photographing weddings, you would be great at it!
