I'm nervous about it. I've hired a really good second shooter to help me out so that gives me some relief. But, is it like riding a bike, once you start you get the hang of it again? I got burned out in the middle of a wedding last time I shot. I'm excited to do this one, but I haven't really touched my camera at all in the past few years, outside of a random headshot or two. I'm starting to "see the angles" and thinking about lighting direction, levels, etc. again. I guess I better dust off my lenses ;)

Watch a couple episodes of Bridezilla, you'll do fine!

I hear you! That wedding train moves fast once the day starts. If it was me, I'd start shooting anything and everything in preparation, just to warm up your skills. You'll do great.

....... and we have a tropical storm rolling over us today. That throws all of my pre-planned shots for a loop.... time to think on the fly.

I haven't really shot much of anything, but i picked the camera up a few weeks ago to do some headshots, and I'll tell you, it felt good in my hands.
