Wedding Day

Wedding Kit, originally uploaded by cycle61.

No studio pictures, websites, attempted graphic design, or one-eyed storytellers tonight. I'm going to bed early, can't stay up for the blogging hour (3am according to Strobist) because my first wedding is tomorrow. I've got everything laid out and packed, batteries charged, cards formatted, sensors cleaned, and address Googled and programmed into the GPS.

I'm borrowing a second camera and lens, another D200 (with one shooting bank set up identically to my camera) and an 85/1.8, which I've used quite a bit in the past. The only thing I haven't used much are the Demb diffusers, but I'm going to try and minimize on-camera flash as much as possible.

Additionally, I gave my gallery page on Zenfolio a serious makeover, it looks more professional now. I'm probably going to be using it to host the wedding pics, as it's clean and powerful enough to act as a frontend for a while. I had hoped to use my PhotoShelter Archive for this, but it's going to be some time before I get the interface figured out.

Tomorrow, by the way, will be my first officially paid job as a photographer. I've sold a few prints here and there, but Friday, February 29, 2008 marks a new beginning for me as well as for the happy couple, Bryce and Danielle.

Wish me luck, and I'll try to have a better looking picture up here tomorrow!
