I thought it would take double time at least.:) Maybe you should do the Pre-Wedding and Trash The Dress yourself too or hide your camera under your jacket during the ceremony and sneak it out to take quick photos. If so I will call you a hero!!!!!



GoPro ;)

I just graduated with a BS in December and I had a GoPro strapped to my chest for the walk lol.

But I am going hide one for a time lapse during the ceremony.

I can't believe you shot these yourself! I would have been out of breath. haha... I think they are good, but someone else could have captured better emotion out of you. You look a bit posed (especially the 2nd shot), but the quality is great!

Probably would have been less fun. And more expensive.

Funny that you mention that because that's probably the only shot not planned, in the serious of 9 shots that we took from the timed exposure set, we were just goofing around with that one. And it's probably my only non forced smile lol.

That amazing for shooting these yourself! I don't think I have the patience for that.
