exciting news!

hehe no where not getting married...but...
This weekend I am going to a wedding. But I do not know the Bride, or the Groom. And I am not a guest. I will be photographing their wedding! I'm dead serious. But before you ask who this crazy bride is, that is letting me attend her lovely wedding and take shots I would like to point out that I will only be helping, and observing and learning. The wedding photographer, a good family friend of ours (and very experienced) has offered to take me along, teach me tricks of the trade and different camera techniques so I can stop using my camera on auto settings :) As a thank you to the Bride and Groom any shots I get, that are any good will be added for free to the wedding package. How very exciting, and yet terrifying at the same time. Here's to hoping (and praying) that I can get a few fantastic shots that the couple will love.

Currently reading and researching how to work all features on my camera (This could take awhile!) and browsing through Flickr for inspiration:
