This is my husbands cousin and his Moms sister. I was casually asked to take some shots while at their reception a few weeks ago. Lighting was a challenge for me, but because it wasn't an "official job" I tried not to stress too much. I had to really raise my ISO to compensate for the lack of light....which can create a grainy texture to the images. I Kept putting off my editing of the pictures....mostly because I was worried I wouldn't be happy with the outcome. In the end I really loved some of the pictures. I enhanced the grain with photoshop, and just tweaked the lighting. Digital photography is nice that way and its fun to let your challenges push you to try things you wouldn't normaly try. SO lesson learned is....try not to get hung up on the anticipated outcome. If things don't turn out the way you really wanted spend your energy thinking of solutions and positive outcomes!
