This was a wedding shoot I did for a Friend of the Family. They just wanted someone to come in and take better than average pictures of the event.
It was fun to do and learned a lot while doing it and it was also great to try and use techniques I have been reading up on and trying out at home.
Unfortunately 3 pictures did not turn out very well and I think what happened is I forgot to turn off the auto-focus and went to take the shot it went slightly out of focus on them. The other thing I might have done is just nudged the focus ring or moved it slightly.
I am happy that the other shots turned out well though!
I honestly feel that it will be a long while though before I agree to do another very small wedding. I want to get more practice with single flash portraiture before I try this again.
Thanks for reading
I want to thank Jill for allowing me to do this for her on her wedding day and giving me the opportunity to learn though the experience of shooting something like this.
Also I want to thank my wife Andrea for being there to make sure I got all shots on the shot list and others that where not.
Update: 2013.06.23 – I recently went through the images and did some touching up to make them a bit better. I didn’t rework all of them I originally posted here in January 2013 just about half of them. This is reflected in the set count of images being only 52 compared to the original 123 i put up previously.
