I wasn't the designated photographer. Just happened to take my camera along at my gf's sister's big day, so took a couple of shots. Thankfully the hired professional didn't mind.

Like i mentioned.. i was actually there as an immediate family, so i couldnt do two roles hehe. I'm a freelance photographer myself, however my designation for that day was to collect red packets haha.

Anyway, thank you all for the kind comments, much appreciated!

Hi Melvin,

The first, third, fourth & sixth shot is nice, and is what a second photographer should look for because the main photographer will be nearer to the bride and groom. Actually as long as you don't shoot the same angle/shot as the main photographer or stand directly opposite him/her, it should be fine. I didn't scold you or show black face @ you, right? ;)

The finger shot is nice but not storytelling enough.

The last shot is more of a main photographer's shot.

Hi Max, actually I didn't consider myself as a 2nd photographer at all. Don't misunderstand that. Afterall I'm not selling those photos. The last shot, I simply took it whilst still being seated, never intended it to be a 'main photographer's shot'.

There's no reason to scold me or show black face either, I'm the one who engaged you as the photographer. I was like any other guest that day and could've stood up and walk around with a compact camera to shoot. But I of course wouldn't want to ruin my sister-in-law's to-be own photos so I didn't. The signing and all, I didn't walk up to the area to steal shots, right?

But thanks for your comments anyway, much appreciated.

Hey hey, don't get me wrong. Saw you with a camera but didn't see you in action, thought you could have more fun with your camera since you brought it there.
