On Saturday I became a professional photographer

So I showed up at my friends wedding and after the ceremony we were all standing outside the temple waiting for the bride and groom to come out, the usual.  As I am standing there, I look around repeatedly and notice that no one has a nice camera but me (I am not a professional).  I kept looking around, and no one came.  Then out came Mary and Jake, and no one came.  So, I very quickly became the photographer.  The day went something like this:
Me: "um, how about everyone on Jake's side get in the shot, then smile"
"ooh, look what they did, lets do that"
"yeah, kissing seems like a good theme, try that again."
Essentially we walked around temple square and stole other people's photo ideas.  It was pretty awesome.  
And, sadly, the temple is crooked in most of the shots, you know, leaning tower of pisa style.  Luckily, they got exactly what they paid for.  Maybe even more because somehow my camera manages to take good pictures without my help.
Here are some of my favorites.  The little kid with the flowers definitely just pulled them out of the ground at the reception.  Then a little girl ran after him screaming about how he needed to give them back.  She got the flowers from him and ran around with them for a while.  It was great.

You and P-Dub!

I think they turned out GREAT! You should probably make them pay for half of your camera. It's only fair. I mean, you weren't given any notice.

Super job, Super You! Did they really not have anyone designated to take pics?! Sheesh. Oh well... they were lucky Andrea was their friend! They're adorable! And I totally want that camera!

I want to see the rest of them-when/can we stop by to view them or would you rather just email them to me? I can't wait to see the rest-those you posted turned out great!

They must not plan things the same way Liz does...

Awesome. Awesome. How would you feel about coming to shoot mine? (P.S., what kind of camera do you have? I'm looking at getting a new one and love to hear about the loves and frustrations of other people's cameras.)
