As soon as we get more takers, we can make plans. Last year's meet was fabulous, 17 of us got together. If we can get a lot of people, maybe get a hotel on board, we can see if they have any weddings set for a certain weekend and see if they don't mind us crashing and give them the images we take.

I would be VERY Interested, but the dates will make it or break it for me.

Opposite of ImagesByInku, the ONLY weekend in September that would work for me is the last weekend. The first weekend in October would be ok. BUT if you want peak fall foliage, you will need to shoot more for late October... See HERE (external link) for a Foliage Calendar.

I'm subscribed to the thread, It's only a 9 hour drive ($180 in Fuel round trip)... I could probably find someone to carpool with... Yes, I'd be very interested!

First weekend of October works for me, too.

Once you have a date set, we could even go to Craigslist and post our "availability" there. Surely we could find a wedding or two where the happy couple couldn't afford a Professional Photographer.

I can see it now. "Well, we couldn't afford one photographer, but we got six for FREE!" That could be a LOT of fun and we'd get to feel good too... helping someone out in a time of need. Imagine how cool it would be to have 5 or 6 photographers crawling around your wedding... I think someone would jump on the opportunity!

Hi Suzie - I had a blast in Albany. Put me down as very interested.

Great, James. I miss everyone. I had such a good time, I wish we had a few more days to shoot. You guys were the best! I hate to say it, but I don't think we'll be able to top last year, but we can try.

We'll have to solidify a date before then too! I'd imagine that's going to affect who can and who can not come.

sounds good to me as I'm always open to learning new and better things and getting to go out and shoot with others as well. CW is a great town and it's not too far away so i'll keep checking back to see what gets decided upon and try and make plans from there

I would love to do this but I also am NOT available the last weekend of September. I'll be in Ocean City, MD for a big VW car show. :(

I'm in Roanoke, VA and would happily make the drive (3.5 hours or so) for the weekend! I've never shot a wedding but am anxious to learn more about HOW to do it. :)

Hello Suzy,

I would be interested also. I think the first weekend in Oct would be better for everyone by the sounds of it. We did have a blast at the last one in Albany and I can tell you one thing i learned a great deal from everyone. Well let me know

Rob

If more can come in October, then let's plan that. I have a commitment the first Saturday, but you don't need me the whole time. Let's plan for dinner Thursday, all day Friday. This is in case there are weddings for some of us on Saturday.

Hmm, I might be interested as well. I'm not so sure that September would work for me, but I might be able to swing it.

I'm not too far away in NC.
