I just went throught the interesting experience of hiring a photographer for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. I've spoken to this guy at several previous parties about camera gear and the photography business. I finally got to see some of his work from a party he did for a good friend of mine. His work is pretty good. He shoots with a D200 and is willing to give me all of the files from the day. Sadly, I've got better glass and bodies that will be sitting home that day. I'll just have to remember that I am a dad that day and not a photographer. Going to be a tough one! This was an interesting experience for me.
