There is always a first time, and who knows it may turn out good for all, if not ......well at least you tried.

Great shot and good luck shooting the wedding.

I think you will know if your ready. Obviously the people wanting to hire you must think you are ready. :)

This is such an adorable shot. I wish I could enjoy the snow as much as her :)

Go for it. They must like your stuff if they asked. You are good and that picture of Sofia is so so cute. Good luck!

You totally should take the job and photo the weddings. You are a great photographer. You are totally ready.

What a great shot!!

And I think you should go for it. Someone else said there's a first time for everything...this will be yours! You'll do great!!

It is SO nauseating to shoot your first wedding, and there is a lot of pressure (which you put on yourself), but the truth is, most of that goes away once you start shooting. Your instincts kick in -- and you have good instincts, and you have the eye (I can see it, and I'm sure I'm not the only one).

I shot my first wedding because my sister-in-law volunteered me. And I had six months to get an ulcer about it :) But it turned out well, and each wedding since has been an improvement.

You should do it -- not only do weddings pay decent, but they are very satisfying as a photographer, because you can take such beautiful pictures.

I'd be happy to share any other advice, if it would help.

Go for it!
