I may be wrong, but I can imagine some couples who would prefer to be the first to see their photo investment, as opposed to having them all on public display the same day.

Having said that, it certainly would be great advertising for the photographer!


I've never had that be any where close to an issue.. usually they thank you a thousand times

Yes - great job for an assistant! It would be even BETTER if they had a rear projection screen, my cousin had that for his wedding, the bridesmaid & groomsmen put together a big slideshow full of photo's of them together (They were highschool sweethearts and have been together 10 yrs so lots of photo's!) it was so cool to see them growing up over the years to now...

here's an easy working setup - depending upon how your storing your photos download to a laptop (preloaded with adobe bridge and video out) with a portable HD attached. Once your have a folder with the images on the laptop's HD make a copy to the portable HD and unmount the portable HD and put in a safe/secure place.

Load bridge and use it's slideshow feature - the DJ can continue playing his music and you can control the slideshow right from the laptop.

If any of you are worried about getting a laptop stolen...insure it.

I often have to leave some camera equipment lying around...if it's stolen, it's insured.

It is always a crowd pleaser. I did it a couple of time when I first started shooting weddings and people love it. It is very difficult to do alone if you don't have help. When my clients or potential clients ask me about it I factor in a price that I can pay for an assistant. I like to concentrate on the wedding and not have to worry about something else. It is the same people who love the slide show that will complain if you miss a shot of uncle Joe from down state.

update - I see there are now external hard drives with media readers built in and video out connections. some are just the enclosurers and you add the HD and some are complete units - anyway just load copies of your images and let it play ( I even saw one that supports playback or RAW files).

I'll have to get the model numbers :rolleyes:

If you can hire a student in graphic arts to put it together for you and run the show. Just remember pay him/her well. Have fun
