Hello everyone. i would really appreciate if you guys/girls could check out my images from a wedding i was shooting yesterday. ive only ever done 1 wedding were i was official photographer and i practically did it for free last year to gain experience, the other one was my cousins where i was a guest and i simply just took some images for them. so this one yesterday was a big deal for me. :D
the guy who im working with is great and he says from now on he will be using me when he gets bookings so thats great.
i'd appreciate some input on these images please. sorry for the link but there was a few i wanted to show so rather than posting them here i thought i'd just post a link to my site.

thanks

Hi jmucker,

I think you did a great job as a 2nd shooter! I am very impressed! I have recently done my 1st two weddings as a 2nd shooter as well.

Question for you: Did you have any control over poses/setup for them? Also, how did you get the posed subjects to look at you? Did you simply say "Look over here", or, did you stand behind/right beside the main photog to get the same angle?

Also, how do you like the 17-55? Did you use it a lot? I am hoping to get it in a week or so to replace my siggy 24-70.

Overall, great job.

thanks man. the fella im working with is very easy going. i basically covered the groom/bestman in the morning before the ceremony. he covered the bride across town. then at the church i got the posed shots of the groom/bestman etc. he says its fine if im beside him taking the same shots but this just confuses the bride and groom so i basically took all he shots ive got on my website and he covered the rest. he done mostly all the formal images.

the posed ones i took i had control over them yeah, he knew i was capable (i hope :D ) so he just left me to it. the only time really were we were taking the same shots was when we had them walking hand in hand through the wood, which is a good job because i just got an email off him earlier saying some of the images he took of these shots didnt turn out the way he'd wanted so he has my set now. it seems/looks so much better having 2 photogrpahers doing a wedding if they are on the same wave length and things are organised, plus the fact we get on really well so thats good too.

the 17-55 is a fantastic lens that i highly recommend. it will probably be on your camera most of the day when you get one. great for low light work too.
