    I got roped into taking the photographs at my Sister-in-law's wedding last year because I had a "Proper looking camera". I'm not one of those photographers that can tell people where to look and how to stand and am more of a quiet person that sits in the background and listens when people are talking, so this was totally alien to me.

    Anyway most of the shots I took either Linda or Paul were looking at someone else that where shouting "over here" so they could get there snap shots of the happy day and I grabbed what I could:eek:. It was a glorious bright sunny day and I over exposed loads of shots, some where out of focus but Linda was over the moon with what I put onto the CD for her.

    I think these were about the best ones I got, and you can blame Hamish and Darren, they wanted to see them :rolleyes:.




    One of the ones were someone shouted "Over Here", but turned out alright I think.

    And Paul wanted a shot of them stood next to his car that he'd just bought.

    Nothing wrong with them mate!

    Im not a bosy photographer either ... In fact i sell my self as someone who will lurk and snap and make chat with the guests... I've even been known to have the odd couple of pints with my clients! Some people ... In fact a lot of people want exactly this!
    I even go as far to tell prospective clients that if they don't want this to go somewhere else (politely of course).
    The best compliment I have had was a letter from a client thanking me, saying the other guests thought I was a friend of the couple!

    Anyway, I'm banging on about my self ...

    Would you do it again?

    Thanks Hamish, I didn't have a clue about the settings or anything I just pressed the button and hoped for the best:eek:.

    If I was already going to the wedding I'd take my camera and get a few shots, and hopefully do a better job, but I certainly wouldn't volunteer as a wedding
