First one I've done and probably the last for a while - the stress is not worth it. Took over a thousand images between myself and a couple of mates who brought their cameras along to help capture the candids. Not many weddings couples have a Nikon D3, Nikon D700, Nikon D300 and Nikon D200 to capture their day so I'm sure they will be happy with the final images.

A few quick shots of the couple.

Excellent work there BP... thats the way I have done weddings before.. only my friends weddings but.. a team of us would take several cameras and take lots of photos then hand over the film canisters for the bride and groom to deal with themselves.. well that was the way in the old days of film.. now I guess we would hand over a CD or DVD of the pics.. that covered all my old friends weddings even my own where I handed my F3 to my friend so he had another film/lens to add to his Nikkormat... plus a couple of others had their cameras.. we always covered every aspect of the event..

Nicely done Pearl!! In looking at your shots, I'm seeing why so many wedding pros liked 6x6 & 6x7 -- seems natural for this venue. Don

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Nice job, well done.

No, but I was aware that mine was the D200 and the other two were shooting willy-nilly with their D3/D700's at what ever ISO they liked while I was constantly trying to keep mine under 400. It has made me realise just how much a new camera can help when you are shooting for others and where every shot may count. My normal style is to wander about in my own little world enjoying taking shots of what ever I want, at what ever pace I want and only lifting the ISO off 100 when I really can't be bothered to use my tripod. I have always been more than happy with my D200 but if f I were to take photography up as a profession I'd be straight out for a D700.

Absolutely a job well done in the Jazzer's book. Both color and mono are keepers. Good luck on the second, third, fourth......and more weddings.

I did one a couple of years ago. There are enough wedding photographers around, I don't need to add my hat to the ring. I really like the last shots in each series. Very nice work and I love the locale. OD

Excellent images and PP, BP! Better than most "professional" wedding photography by far! I used to shoot weddings in the old days of film and medium format, and while digital has made the confirmation that you got the shot easier, it's no less nerve wracking that before. Glad it's not my gig! I'm sure the couple will love your work! J
