I'd give her a time frame on all of this. ~1 week or so. Don't rush any of this, you'll just end up with lovely photos that turned to crap from you trying to rush and please her.

Did you get any shots of you slapping Granny?

When i think back to saturday Granny stands out to me more than anything else. What a nightmare! i remember at one point i was tying flowers together she came into the room and said "wheres the cute little photographer?" in a sassy tone, i was like i'm right here, without even looking back at her. at the end of the day she thanked me for comming over and taking photos, and suggested that i check out the rest of "her" island, meaning to leave her house, which made things more awkward than they needed to be because the taxi took awhile to pick us up. blah. i need to let it go that some people are so uptight, its just so hard to accept. what if this happeneds again in the future? i dont even know if i am willing to take photos for an upperclass family ever again

well right now i am looking at a photo that is important, its the grooms face as he sees the bride in her dress, his white tux is completely blown, but if i tilt my laptop screen back all the details are still there. im not sure how i can darken his tux without touching his skin tone, i have tried making layers and manually selecting his tux, but it just doesnt seem right. :(

I doesn't sound blown. Just note that most laptop screens are pretty bad. They won't show you anywhere near the full spectrum of tones that the file itself will contain. Chances are it won't be calibrated or anything, either.

It's not impossible, but just keep it in mind when editing. It might worth viewing your images on a few other computers to judge, rather than just use the one laptop monitor, unless you know the colour of that monitor inside and out.

Bit of advise on post if I may.

Give yourself enough time to do this over a few days and don't try and finish all the images in one pass as you need time to leave them and go back to them. You'll then have a much better eye for refining them.

Two weeks to get Wedding images back is fairly typical so you have enough time.

End of the day, take as much time as you need to get them just as you want. I always work on the basis that the last set of photo's I present should be the best you've ever done.

Good advice.

When I did it, it was awesome to go back and look at them later. You know a picture is good if you still like it days later.

Yes, I would be worried if it was my first wedding. Your going to deal with a WOMEN who thinks everything that should be 1000000% her way and anything you do can't be right if her mother says its not.


goodluck and have fun, you'll be ok

Well, I'm sure all their stuff is insured just like my gear is. Plus, they probably felt comfortable knowing that I was shooting with a 5D3 and L glass myself already.

I see.. perhaps it's just me, but I'd be annoyed if a random stranger dropped my lens and i had to go through the hassle of trying to claim something against insurance (which could take days or weeks), or have to go buy another replacement. Also not to mention that my lens won't be available + ready to use for the next shooting gig (which could be the very next day).

To me it's not worth the risk of having some random stranger using my gear :)
To each his own haha.

I agree, no one borrows my stuff just in case. Nothing to gain, everything to lose. Why would someone do that.

Sounds more like "no class" to me. Money breeds ignorance if you ask me, don't be intimidated by the likes of her. She's from a generation where they say the young are rude. Sounds to me, like you could give her a lesson in manners :)
I just did a christening for my GF's brother. I'd never even been to one before so didn't know what to expect ??? I didn't get the shots I had planned either. Same thing, people want to hit the bar as fast as they can.
I turned up with my 7d, 17-55, 70-200 and 430II. Took a look in the church and thought oh oh. Some natural window light and very yellow light bulbs to contend with. I converted to BW.
I don't shoot people, wildlife and landscapes are my thing, and as it was my GF's family I did it for ziltch so they got what I could get.
TAKE YOUR TIME EDITING. IF THE PICS/YOU AREN'T READY, THEN TOUGH. IT TAKES WHAT IT TAKES !!!!!
I'll post a one so people can chime in and slam it/me. Hopefully yours will be better, so the thread can only look up from this............
It was my first outing with flash. A schoolboy error I made was not asking if the vicar was left or right handed. Consequentley I was stood on the wrong side of the alter to get a face on shot when the water was splashed on Olivers forehead OOOPS :o
I never had much feed back after, so I don't know if they loved/hated them. Saying that, I never really had much in the way of a thank you either.
