I really don't care to do wedding photos anymore. I did several years ago (with film), and I think most of those weddings ended in divorce! I know that I wasn't the cause, but it was disconcerting. Then I decided that there is just too much at stake with wedding photos. It was a casual conversation at a roping event ...a young woman was talking about her September wedding and how expensive wedding photographers were. Then she asked if I could "take some pictures" at her wedding. Hmmmmm .... I reluctantly agreed. I did find out that two other friends were going to be there with their cameras, however. For me, the wedding was a simple case of photographing what I wanted to photograph, and I didn't have to do the requisite groups or family photos. The day started with rain, but by 4 o'clock, it was simply overcast and pleasant, perfect for wedding in a field and perfect for photographers.
