Some friends asked me if I'd take some shots at their wedding. I was very reluctant as I have no experience in wedding photography and I don't even have a backup camera. They eventually persuaded me after I made it clear that I had no idea what I was doing and that they shouldn't have any expectations.

Anyway, it went a little better than I thought and these are some of my favourties. I'd really like to know what you think?

Looks pretty good to me for a 1st attempt (I've been lurking a bit in the Wedding topic recently) !

These shots are great, the exposure is good & you've captured some lovely moments, you should be very proud of yourself, I'm sure the B&G will love them.

If the rest are anything like these you should have been the primary shooter for their wedding. These are very very good IMO

+1 for #4. That's a wall hanger. Nice work.

A nice set of well posed crisp shots that I bet the couple were really pleased,I have seen much worse from "Professional" wedding photographers

I always cringe when I see a thread of someone who is not a pro but was asked to shoot for a friend. But you did very well. I even like the PP you did for the Bride shot. Keep it up and you may have a side career.
