  Hi--I have never done a wedding, but a few months aga I shadowed the photographer at my niece's wedding. Before I did, I did some research on the web and the best info I found was John A Lind's web page on doing a wedding. The site is http://johnlind.tripod.com/wedding/. He is also a Betterphoto member and gives tons of great information.
Best wishes
Colby

  If you want it to look interesting then use alot of wide open aperatures. Wide angle to tell a story. Close-up of details that bring emotion to the photo. Nothing posed, looks old fashioned and chezzy. If the backround looks cheap or ugly and you have no other choice blur it. Walk around the couple, find their best angles. Make-um laugh, those are the best.

Jerry Frazier   Hey DJ, thanks. Just shoot from your heart. Find the emotion, and forget about the technical things.

Chris Chris   Judging by your gallery your best bet is to hire someone that has shot a wedding before or you can play russian roulette.
