I switched to all digital wedding photography last summer. Cameras used are the D1x and D1H. My workflow includes batch processing using Nikon Capture and finishing in Photoshop. I burn the images on to a CD and have them printed on a Fuji Frontier. Results are excellent. Time for preparing images has increased but the nice thing is that now I have control over color, contrast and cropping.
