    Jim, Cindy, Joey, Seneca,

    Thanks for the compliments :smile: I had a lot of fun shooting this wedding - it was my second time doing it, and it was no pressure since she had hired two pros to do the real work. I just came along with my camera for fun :wink:

    Thanks Albeeeezy :smile: One of the pros was using a D200, and I wasn't able to chat with the other pro, but it looked like a D200 or D300. Definitely also a Nikon.

    Thanks Greg! That was a purely lucky shot - I saw them walking towards me, so I quickly snapped up my camera for the shot. I really like that one too - sometimes the luckiest ones are the favorites :wink:

    Thanks! Your compliments mean a lot to me since I really admire your wedding photos! I think the ceremony ones are the better shots though, my reception pictures aren't as interesting...

    Thanks Jordan! I hope they will like them too :smile:

    Thanks Raj! Yes, there were quite a lot. Two hired professionals and four family/friends (including me) with DSLRs who volunteered to help out as well.

    Thanks Carol...how flattering! I do want to try to do this more - it'd be nice to get a side job as a second shooter to fund my camera purchases :wink:

    Most of the time I used a D300 with 24-70/2.8 and SB-600. Some other pictures were taken with either Tokina 11-16/2.8, CZ 85/1.4, or CZ 50/2.

  15. Looks like a whole lot of fun.
