    Sooo....

    Ive got some friends who didnt want a photographer but decided they did in the end. They asked me. I know nothing about wedding photography. Add to that, the fact that the wedding was on a farm, the ceremony was about 3 minutes long, and there was no real 'reception', and you end up with a pretty adverse situation. Ah well. Ohya, they also didnt want me to get pictures of the bride getting ready...Just the groom...in the basement of his grandmas's house...with one single light...

    Im not too happy with the pictures, but I did learn a lot :hsd:

    Yes, I know it makes Kentucky look bad...but whatever. Here goes nothing.

    I can definitely understand some of the issues. As a guest, I love that the younger people these days want like three minute-long weddings, but as a photographer it sucks. I think you did pretty well for what you had, dude. It's hard to compare normal, everyday weddings and the pictures to pictures of people's weddings that cost $50k.

    I actually really like the pics. They look happy, and that's what counts at a wedding. :)

    But hey, if that's what they wanted, I'm not one to judge. I got married in the courthouse.

    And thanks for all the replies guys. The guys with the rifles/shotguns were all part of their 21 gun salute.

    The 'random dude' was the groom. All the groomsmen had handguns. It was an open carry wedding.
