An Impromptu Wedding Shoot

My wife and I recently travelled over 550 miles to Fort Wayne, IN to attend the wedding of two of her close friends from her time spent getting her Doctorate (did I mention my wife is a doctor?).  It was, to say the least, quite the drive.  We travelled through amazingly interesting Ohio (224 miles of cornfields) and most of Western Pennsylvania.

One of the more interesting things to happen that weekend was an impromptu shoot that occured when it was discovered that the happy couple had only hired their wedding photographer until 8pm.  I mean, does the party even really start before that?!

Luckily I had my entire setup with me, and use this as a chance to get a little bit of experience in one of the avenues I've yet to attack: wedding photography.  I've toyed with the idea, but desperately want to second shoot a few weddings before I feel comfortable charging people to be the primary shooter.  People spend a FORTUNE on their wedding photos, and the responsibilities laid upon the photographer can be a lot to handle for someone with as little wedding experience as I have.

I selected a few shots from the wedding, and wanted to share them with my readers.  These were my favorites, and some of the shots of which I'm most proud.  The entire gallery can be found in a link at the end of this post.  Feel free to leave your comments, questions or any other kind words in the comment section!
