I am not a wedding photographer, nor have I ever shot a wedding. But when my sister asked me if I could photograph their wedding in the Dominican Republic how could I possibly say no? I have to say though, I was probably more nervous about photographing it than she was about getting married. Not only is it my sister’s wedding, but she is a wedding photographer!!! (Check out her site). In the end, I gained a lot from the experience. I also learned that wedding photographers work hard!
At the end of the day I couldn’t be happier with the experience. Not only did I get to test my creative edge, but I also felt much more involved in the wedding than I would have been otherwise.
My sister obviously made a beautiful bride, and I can only hope that my photos translate that beauty and the beauty of the event as a whole.
So, what do you think? Do you like them? Or should I stick to my day job as a travel photographer???

I hate shooting into lens flare, my sister loves it… I did this for her.
More lens flare for my sister… in this case, I think it turned out cool.
