Taking the Fujifilm x100s Out for a Spin at a New Orleans Wedding

"You see if you don’t take money, they can’t tell you what to do, kid." -- Bill Cunningham

Just over a month ago, my wife and I were invited to a wedding here in New Orleans. I'd been wanting to shoot a wedding with my Fujifilm x100s since I got it just to see how it would fare in a situation with a lot of moving parts. I was able to experiment with this camera because I wasn't the hired photographer. In another scenario, I'd have brought my Nikon cameras since I know very well how well they handle under these high octane situations.

I was very satisfied but unsurprised by the x100s' performance. It handled the rain with no problem and the autofocus worked wonderfully. I could very well see this being the only camera I shoot events with in the future. It was fun, compact and easy to work with and due to its quiet shutter and size, I went mostly unnoticed when I needed to be.
