Nancy and I flew home this morning, and I've spent most of the day looking through the 800 pictures I took during our trip to Sedona, Arizona. It was a weekend of firsts... our first visit to Sedona, my first wedding as the prime photographer, and the first time I've had the chance to try out my new 28-70mm lens in a Mission Critical evironment. I'm still working on the gallery, but here's some samples... scenics from Sedona and some people pics.

Those are great. I enjoyed both the wedding and landscape photographs. I have to report back with my wedding pictures.

Wow Frank, you outdid yourself on these. The wedding pics look great, and I'm sure that the B & G will be thrilled. The landscape shots are awesome. I'd like to see a few more of these when you get them processed.

Welcome back.

Thanks, Gordon! I was pleased with the locale, the weather, and the way my gear worked out. I had anticipated using the 80-200 and 60mm micro quite a bit, but the 28-70 covered 98% of my needs. I'll link the gallery once I work my way through it.

Looks like you had fun, Frank.

The "great shots" is a given.

I see the menfolk are wearing the famous "Black Watch" tartan. The regiment that wore that eponymous cloth were renowned as tough cookies.

They were spoken of with awe by their enemies as "the devils in skirts".

UF,

Very nice job. The detail in the wedding dress is awesome. I helped to take pictures of a friends wedding last year and may have the opportunity to help again with another friends wedding this year.

The pictures of Sedona are gorgeous too not to mention the reception being held with the view of those beautiful mountains.

The groom and his men are large people, and were all athletes. The groom stands 6' 3", weighs in at nearly 17 stone, and started at linebacker during his years at Georgia Tech. His older brother is even larger, and had a brief professional career as a tight end for the Detroit Lions. But once they put those skirts on, they got in touch with their inner children :lol:.

Well Uncle Frank, you're off to a great start as the primary wedding photographer. Now..... how did you like shooting a wedding?
Was everyone there and dressed on time for the pictures beforehand?
What did you learn that will benefit you on the next one?

... or maybe a great finish :roll:.

It was great fun. You're right in the middle of everything, and it's a joy to take pictures of such pretty, happy people... but, it's strenuous business. The shoot started at 9AM and was continuous up till 5PM. My shoulders and wrists ached by the time I wrapped up. And now, I've been reviewing and editing pictures for the last day and a half, and am only halfway done.

Was everyone there and dressed on time for the pictures beforehand?
Hell no :lol:. Thank goodness I had Nancy to help round people up and pose them!

What did you learn that will benefit you on the next one?
That it's better to leave it to the young bucks?

But it has it's rewards. And I'm sure after it's all done, and if the bride and groom like the gallery, I'll probably forget the tough part and do another 8).
