Hmm title makes it sound like I plan on getting married many times throughout my life, but that's not quite what I mean (though I won't rule anything out)
SO technically I lied, it's my second wedding, my first was my sisters where I was the maid of honor (Mistake #1) after only having my T2i kit (Mistake #2) for a month (Mistake #3) and thinking reading half way through Understanding Exposure would be sufficient (Mistake #4)
I know, I know! I cringe to think of it. Even now, doing this wedding as a 'favor' because they can't afford a 'real' photographer has my palms sweating. I'm not ready for this!
Too bad, it's happenning. So I'm going through literally hundreds of the threads in this and the photo sharing 'wedding' subforum, thinking of other events I've done (recently did my nieces quince) and what I learned from them, trying to think of everything that could go wrong. And that's where this thread comes in.
If yall have any advice like nuggets of gold, that 'don't forget' that 'here's a tip' that 'I wish I had known' feel free to chime in!
I'm most nervous for the reception shots and the posed shots, because this is when people are most aware of the camera. I think I'll be ok for the church because people won't be focused on me, they'll be focused on each other so it'll be easier to capture that raw emotion. What do you fabulous engagement session shooters tell people to make them laugh so naturally?!
