    Rangefinder

    I swear I make different images with my rangefinder 35mm cameras than I do with SLR's or larger format. Here is why I am not a wedding photographer. This is NOT a pretty picture.

    Does this make you ask "What is going on here?" If so that is great - If not - I guess I blew the moment. Just wanted some other's thoughts.

    Background - being informed there are NO flowers and NO best man.

    This was the moment the bride and bridesmaids were informed that there were no wedding flowers and there was no best man - about 20mins before the wedding was supposed to start. I love how the expressions range from shock to nausea - love the brides hands.

    Me to - just wish it was not so freaking expensive. 90% of what I shoot in the M6 is TMZ or TX

    The best man ran away with the flowers????

    Aren't they supposed to run away with a bridesmaid instead?

    Thanks - I like it as well - it is almost surreal without effect.

    Makes sense. The bride is clearly upset, while the girl in the middle has that look of, "I don't understand the words coming out of your mouth."

    TX and TMZ are a good pair. Pretty much what I shoot in my RF too. TMZ is expensive, but I've decided I'm going to shoot as much of it as I can, costs be damned.

    It could have been worse. At my brother's wedding, we had a groom, bride, flowers, best man (me), organist, etc. When the time came for the ceremony, the only thing missing was the minister. He went to the wrong church. He did show up about 45 minutes late., which really messed up the reception, as well as the bride's nerves. Unfortunately, while I had the ring, I didn't have a camera to record the going ons.

    Great shot.
