Smaller Wedding

Well, I'm not sure it totally qualifies as I got groped by our regular UPS guy from work haha but small world!

A welcome grope, Sydney, is like a group hug? An uncalled for one is an invasion! Hope he's nice!

Just an opinion on photographing flowers. To my experience, underexposing is often a good idea as this yields richer color and better detail in whites. Overexposure loses detail in white flowers, so I tend to underexpose.

That's a great observation and I agree with you. In the last 18 months or so I've basically gotten myself set up as a contractor, second shooting for some of the best wedding photogs in Austin.

So I often adjust what I *would* do to give them what they want. This particular company is known for an airy, breezy, hazy, pastel, almost blown-out look so they always ask me to shoot slightly over exposed. Except the brides dress of course.

And no, no desire to be primary shooter. I deal with enough client angst M-F 9 to 5!
