AquaStudent I am very glad. I was hoping I'd never have to photograph an event ever again...until I got volunteered to photograph the family reunion yesterday. That wasn't nearly as stressful though.

I want to share some of the photos just to show how a few of them turned out.

Thanks again for all the help guys

I've got quite a few pictures to go though but I know many of them came out well.

Thanks everyone for the support.
That's Great to hear!

Do you have a mac? Apple do a great printing service in the UK and I'm sure they must have a US equivalent. The quality is really nice.

ony I got married two years ago and did exactly this.

The amount you have to spend on a good photographer is insane. The mid priced photographers seem to be someone with a website, a mediocre camera and a tendancy to chronically over/under use photoshop. Theres a very good reason they don't command top dollar.

In my opinion its too much pressure to put on one person but if you can get some friends and family to all bring whatever cameras they have, you will get plenty of photos between you. I had three friends with an interest in photography and some very nice kit and it worked really well. The photos turned out far better than many I saw in professional portfolios.

I've noticed this technique is used on a lot of shots. Some of them are VERY cool!

GraphicGr8s Laura, if it's a head and shoulder shot it should be shot at the same height. However if you are doing a full length shot then the photog should be down low. I mean on the ground low. "Normal" length lenses aren't very flattering. A woman should be shot at around 200mm. Lens compression is very flattering to facial features.

laurahmm I dont know anything about photography but I do know what bad pictures look like. A personal pet peeve of mine yet for some reason lots of people take pictures this way. Please shoot at an angle that is not below us. It doesnt make us look flattering and makes us look like we have a double chin. I see it all the time, the wife is standing straight and the husband gets down on his knees to take a picture. I like pictures taken directly across from me or can be slightly above me as well. But please dont make the bride tilt her head down. Thats just my 2 cents. Goodluck with the pictures. And dont worry, it really depends on the bride. She seems pretty low key, I think it will be fine. My sister had professional pics taken and she regretted it because shes not really a picture person. She hasnt glanced at the pictures since. Maybe her daughter might be curious but one or two good pictures is all she needs. Some people love their pictures and some people dont. Goodluck

Laura
