    snip snip!

    ...I'll save the sort of funny, sort of scary wedding photography horror stories for another time.

    I had a good laugh at the first part - it was so very true! I am not horribly out of shape, but my wife thought I was going to have a heart attack up there! Either that or dehydrate myself - there was so much sweat pouring off me! Part of it was the fact that I was in a suit and tie and the church was full and the day was warmer than anticipated. But - I think at least 50% of it was just my lack of experience causing a lot more leg work not to mention anxiety about missing shots or just plain screwing up!

    And I would love to hear those horror stories - I think if you started that thread in the lounge, it would take on a life of its own and lead to many hours of side splitting laughter! I would love to see it!
