Have You Ever Been the Wedding Photographer?

Hi Neighbors,

As you know from previous posts I was just the photographer at a friends wedding.  My 14 year old daughter was actually my assistant and used the second camera. Between us we took over 700 pictures of the wedding, the guests, and some special shots.  I personally would love to do a photo book or some other special photo related gift using some of the pictures taken at the wedding.

They were really on a strict budget, and I wanted them to remember their wedding with some really special photos.  I think we managed to catch some of those special moments.  I am actually hoping to do more weddings, and I think my daughter made a great assistant.

Since I have become more interested in the photography aspect, I have been searching different websites to find different ideas to help enhance the wedding.  Did you know you can have wedding stamps made?  I didn't.  You can use a theme or a picture of the engaged couple on a stamp to mail your wedding invitations.  Now isn't that a neat idea!  You can also have special stamps made after the wedding from some of your favorite photos.  I think we took several pictures that would look great on a stamp.

Anyway, both my daughter and I are both going to be working on improving our photography skills, so my neighbors here will be hearing more an probable seeing more of our experiments.  Take a look at the couple of pictures I have added and leave a comment letting me know what my neighbors think.  I value your opinion.  See you At the Fence!

 I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for wedding stamps and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

I love the photo of the hand and the rings.

I love that first photo, too! I've attended many Long Island weddings, but haven't covered one as a photographer. I think you're off to a good start though, keep up the good work!
