    Does anyone have any trick for taking pictures say of a wedding when the bride or groom is wearing glasses?

    Yes, if you are getting reflections from the glasses, 2 options...

    remove the glasses, or you simply move to the left or right a little so that you are outside the family of angles that reflect the light into your camera.

    Its very simple.

    Or you could always ask them to poke out the lenses form their glasses, but that would likely piss off your clients... lol

    You can also have the person tilt the glasses forward by moving the stems of the glasses an inch or so above their ears. This will angle the lenses downward and help prevent reflections.

    That's what I was told to do at my wedding. I wore my glasses back then. I was also constantly being told to tilt my head down to eliminate reflections.
