my first documentary-style wedding shoot

Last week a good friend of mine asked me to shoot his civil ceremony and spend the day with them. So before the wedding day, I did some research on how to utilize my Fujifilm X-T1 and the XF-56mm lens (85mm equivalent), along with the X100T which has a 23mm (35mm equivalent). I shot a couple of other small weddings with my 5D Mark III before successfully, but I was looking to achieve the more "soulful" images that I believe Fujifilm is able to produce. 

I've come across this amazing photography resource, which is the website of a documentary photographer Kevin Mullins, where he describes his approach and technique to shooting with the Fuji system: http://www.kevinmullinsphotography.co.uk/fuji/shooting-weddings-with-a-fuji.html

So I studied his website for a couple of days and tried to take it all in, and it gave me a renewed excitement to get out and shoot again!... I don't usually do weddings (and I dread them, frankly) but shooting for my friend was so much fun with this newfound knowledge! There had to be some posed shots, upon their request, naturally. But otherwise I told them to ignore me completely and act as if I wasn't around. And it worked beautifully. They're extremely happy with the results and I have a renewed confidence in my photography.

It's also worth noting that the day before the shoot, I went out and purchased the HoldFast Gear Money Maker Two-Camera Harness (Water Buffalo, Black, Medium Size) and it had zero strain on my back having two cameras on me for 12 hours! I suffer from back pain and not supposed to wear any sling/messenger style bags or straps, so this gear is just perfect!
