Okay. Just wondering.

Of course if you get good results, and it gets out, folks in your area will be saying, "Hey, look at the pictures this guy took with his phone! We don't need no stinking wedding photographer, we know lots of people with phones." ;)

Well, either way, it'll be interesting to see how it all works out. Good luck! :)

Pardon my lack of knowledge in this realm--but can you manually adjust exposure using a phone camera ?

Why is the couple interested in this ? And will they have a parallel shooter with pinhole camera ?

I suspect the couples interest is because the photos will be free.

I'm pretty sure there are Android apps unlocking manual exposure controls.

The converse outcome is... if this guy can do this with his phone, what can he do with a normal camera?

In which group - photographers...or those getting married...we are well aware that skill takes precedent over equipment (up to a point), but what about the average couple getting married...;)

depends on the phone, but generally, yes, there is a surprising amount of flexibility in camera phones these days.

the primary obstacle you run into is the size of the sensor and of course, the fixed nature/quality of the lens. However, I would think an imaginative photographer would put those to good use, and consider them features, not obstacles...

that being said... it's certainly POSSIBLE to make some amazing images with cell phone cams.

Good luck with your project, I'm sure it's going to be interesting at the least, and a learning experience at the worst. :)

Why am I envisioning a guy with 2 or 3 LED floods on a stick, over his head, attached to a camping frame when I think about how this is going to work....

if you can find out the shutter speed on your phone using the app, i'm sure you can sync a speedlite to be triggered using the phone's on-camera flash as motion blur will probably be your biggest enemy. LEDs can work too, but I'd figure an assistant is needed to be moving with subjects?

If you are gonna do it, at least arm yourself with the best weapon possible for the job: Nokia Lumia 1020. Nothing else comes close. The sensor is like FOUR TIMES larger than the iPhone5 sensor; you can even play a little bit with DOF. Built-in optical image stabilization. Carl Zeiss optics. Full manual controls built in. Powerful REAL XENON flash, not that LED crap. Dedicated shutter button that allows you to exposure and focus lock with a half press like a real camera. 3X lossless zoom that will give you practically the same range as the 24-70L. Low light performance that obliterates samsung and apple. You can even get a genuine Nokia camera grip with a secondary battery for all-day shooting power, more comfy in the hand, bigger shutter button, and standard tripod mount. Also, with the Xenon flash, you can even sync to studio strobes with "digital ready" optical slaves. And the included "Smart Shoot" camera app blasts off 5 images at in a row, and allows you to swap heads in group shots super easily. Perfect for family formals.

If I were to do a wedding with a phone, there is no other phone I would use. None. Even National Geographic sent out one of it's star photographers on assignment using only a Lumia 1020.
