I did use an X100 for an entire wedding. Purposely very dark, moody, and unconventional.

If I hired you to shoot my wedding and you presented me with these photos I would sue you for parading as a wedding photographer, and gross negligence on your part.

I never saw a worse series of photos from a wedding.

Really? I shoot weddings, this is one of the best wedding sets I have seen. Not the same as everyone else's. A nice change of pace, and in a very good way. The shots capture emotion, instead of the photographer concentrating so much on a perfect shot that they want to get.

I imagine you would have never hired Brian for your shots Nikonworks, so I am not sure how your comments apply here.

When a person hires a wedding photographer I hope they would hire a photographer based on their portfolio and give the photographer a clue of what style they want.  Remember, just because someone doesn't have the same tastes as you, doesn't mean others are wrong.
