gulp

It looks like I was just hired to photograph...a wedding! A friend of mine (and a good friend of my sister-in-law) is getting married in July. I am so flattered (and a little nervous) that she is willing to let me photograph her wedding - but I'm also SUPER excited! I always manage to lug my huge camera to friends' weddings, hoping to capture a great moment or photos of all the beautiful details that make a wedding so special. Now I can be the "official" photographer - I'm just thrilled at the opportunity.

I have LOTS to learn before the big day...must get cracking...

Thanks Carrie - I'm sure I'll get progressively more freaked out as July approaches...

I know there are TONS of resources for stuff like this - but I saw this article and thought of you & this blog post:

Don't know if you're familiar with this guy's site - I love it because he's got tips for everyone, from pros to people who don't know how to turn on their point and shoot. I always learn something.

Oooh, thanks Patti! I have this site bookmarked. I actually referenced this site for the shallow depth of field lesson, and I've been meaning to explore it more.
