Two years ago, I picked up a camera for the first time. Well, I should specify: a camera with more options than "take photo now" and the flower and the little dude that runs (I think that was the sport setting?). And I started where every photographer’s handbook will always tell you you should never start: at a wedding.
There’s a reason why all the books of the trade tell you not to do it! This is the most important day of two people’s lives and if you mess it up because you’re shooting inside a dark chapel with no flash at 100 ISO (...not that that happened to me... nope...), you’re running a huge risk to say the least!
