    Hey All,

    I shot my first wedding the other weekend (second shooter) and I finally got around to post processing. These are my favorites.

    The OM-D was an absolute blast to shoot with! All shots were taken with the 25mm 1.4.

    The pics are great and the fact that you took them with only one 50mm prime makes them even more awesome

    Thanks for the feedback guys! a 12mm Olympus would have been handy, but it was fun to just move around with one lens.

    Using a flash (nikon) was another thing I wasn't used to, but now I'm convinced to get the 600R.

    Great work!

    My only question is: If you were second shooter how is it you were doing primary shots like the oath ceremony in front of the priest and the ring presentation?

    Beautiful images.

    PS. I love that photo with the spoons, and I'm awfully impressed on how the shortest kid managed to get that knife there....

    Nice job indeed. I'll assume you avoided flash quite a bit which is a good thing. Makes things look a LOT more dimensional and tactile as well. That was a good lens choice for that purpose as well.

    Long of the short is...I just got close when I felt I needed to.

    I used a Nikon Flash for some of them - really helped light up the church and tent for the afterparty.
