Wedding Photography


I've mostly shot black & white children, families, senior portraits. I'm now in much demand to shoot weddings...and am looking for any tips, hints, exposure tricks, color & b/w film types. Anything else you wanna tell me!
Thanks,
Debek

Don't underestimate yourself...and I found that by using several cameras and a digital, the results from my very first wedding were pretty decent after I read throught his entire site and the related sites...the information here was exceptional, and tips like extinguishing the candles at the alter so they don't interfere, kepping the lights on during the first dance or two, and attending the rehersal to clear information with the minister were most beneficial. Our planned outdoor shots were moved to the interior of the church because it poured rain out. I was happy that the church was available as a venue for the formal pics.The stained glass windows became a lovely background and also the reflextion of the windows in the piano...I am still waiting for more of those photos to be developed..
