My First Wedding

My cousin, Sheryl took a job in Arizona and her and her fiance packed up everything, planned a wedding in about three weeks and left Missouri.  With her wedding plans being packed into three weeks finding a photographer was impossible....introduce me photographing my first wedding.  And when you photograph a wedding you need an assistant, right?  That's when it's nice to have a wonderful husband who likes to take pictures.  Our little church back home is OLD and very outdated so the pictures aren't spectacular because of backgrounds and ugly pew colors (orange) YUCK!  But I was pleased at the shots we took.  I don't think I'll probably do another wedding unless it's for a close friend or family member, just because of my inexperience.  I really do want to take a photography class so that I can learn more about my wonderful camera.  I also need a class in Photoshop or some other photo editing program.  Anyone know where they're offered at or a good way to learn more?Here are some pics and edits from John & Sheryl's special day; I hope you enjoy!

The beautiful bride, Sheryl
