    Talk about inspiration!
    I've been lurking for awhile now, and I just found this thread. There are some VERY talented people here! (As if y'all didn't know that already....) bowdown.gif

    I've only done one wedding on my own so far, but I've done several bridals. Here are a few of my faves:

    I was setting my white balance when the dad came sooner than expected. I had no time to turn my autofocus or finish my white balance. I just shot and hoped for the best. I think the unfocused puts it in a dream state, also makes it feel like you're giving the bride and her father some privacy.

    Just like the window light on her face. Just enough detail to see her face line against the window.

    Wedding in May...
    Hi - This is a great thread ! iloveyou.gif

    Lots of very talented photographers and great ideas bowdown.gif

    I had the opportunity to put aside my computer and photograph a wedding back in May. In addition to enabling the bride, groom and guests
    to view and purchase images on my smugmug site, by using smugmugs fancy customization features I created the bride and groom their own 'theme' - Sarah and James - which matched the 'theme' of the wedding. I used the Showit Web application for the home page slideshow. They love it !!

    Here are some of my favorites:
    * More images can be seen at Sarah and James

    while the wedding was pleasant, i was having the hardest time figuring out what it was behind his ear...

    Couple of my favorites where I was a guest/second shooter and was taken under the wing of very nice wedding photographers. I have two weddings booked for myself this fall so hopefully they'll be as pain free and fun as these were! I hope this is not too many...

    Aerial Shot of Wedding: Different Perspective
    Here is one of my favorite, as shooting from the Kite was a last minute decision which paid off big time. The camera ended up taking shots throughout the ceremony, and the wind was strong enough to leave it unattended. This is one of my favorites because it shows the father walking the daughter down the aisle (Sand), as the sun was setting.

    Cool! Was it taken with your one of your powershots? Was it set to go off every so often or was it triggered with a remote? FUN! (And you are brave!)

    Yes! Powershot SD990
    Cool! Was it taken with your one of your powershots? Was it set to go off every so often or was it triggered with a remote? FUN! (And you are brave!)

    I had just gotten into Kite Aerial Photography, and was down at this wedding shooting video with my new Canon 5D Mark II, and had gotten some great shots the previous days from the air. The powershot cameras use an alternative firmware called CHDK to allow you to run scripts, shoot RAW, Bracketing, Motion Detection, etc. I launched the Kite about 30 minutes before the ceremony, and went about fiddling with my Video gear. Came back about 15 minutes before the ceremony, brought the camera down to check that the angle I was pointing at was correct, made an adjustment, relaunched, and walked away. There is a shot of the couple kissing as well, but that one isn't as good, as it happened after sunset. Now, I have 3 kites, and use a Canon G9 almost exclusively for KAP. I also use the script on the G9 with a wide angle lens adapter from an elevated position during weddings as a 3rd camera. If the pictures turn out, great. If not, no loss. Since they click about once every 5 seconds, it makes for some great time lapse movies of the ceremony as well. Sorry for the long post...

    I'm really partial to this one. It is from the very first wedding I photographed. If I had to do it all over, I might do the B&W conversion differently, but I haven't touched it again because I love it the way it is.
