View Full Version : Shot a wedding yesterday

Just a quick, short little wedding for my friend the bride. I told her I guarantee no images, because I am not good at weddings.

Here are a few I have processed so far. I am happy with them but not excited.

It took place in a very small venue, the clubhouse at their apartment complex.

It's not easy to shoot wedding. Good job.

My sympathies having to shoot a wedding when you are not a wedding photographer. You did a good job considering.
I got stuck doing one a few years ago. One of the brides good friends is a friend of mine. I got talked into helping her shoot the wedding (and she is a less experienced photographer than me). I insisted on talking to the bride before the wedding and trying to lower expectations and make it VERY clear that I am NOT a wedding photographer. I believe I did an adequate job (not great by my standards) but at least I didn't hear of any complains from the wedding couple so I guess they were satisfied.

I think some times they are really just looking to ensure someone is taking photos without any real expectation of super professional wedding photos. That being said, it looks like you did a fine job. Good on ya!
