    So yesterday I was having lunch with my mother and I heard our waitress talk to the patrons next to us and she told him that she is getting married next month. My ears instantly perked up. I grabed a business card and when she comes back to our table, I introduced myself and explained my services.

    She told me that she didn't have a photographer yet and had been interviewing them. I explained a little more and we made phone call appointment for Tuesday for us to go over more. She sounds very interested in using me.

    I found out that she is getting married in a small church and then having the reception indoors a restaurant.

    I have never shot an indoor wedding yet and I was hoping for suggestions. I know that flash is frowned upon during a ceremony but what about afterwards? I'll find out a little more when I talk to her tomorrow but I'm hoping for suggestions right now... whats the best recommendation for this situation?

    Also she made a request for the story book type print books and I was hoping for recommendation there? I have not yet taken a look at vendors and was curious which companies you used. Something she said was that she is trying to be cost effective here.

    Thanks for all your help

    Thanks Big Mike I am looking into it.

    I never got a response to the other question though and wanted to bump this thread because I definitely go the job! (Whoo Hoo)

    But I also want to ask what kind of bounce flash would work with my Digital Rebel EOS XT I also have a speedlite 380ex. I'm willing to upgrade on my flash for this wedding and hope for suggestions.

    When Shooting in a low lit church bump your ISO, open the apperature and reduce shutter speed (not so much that motion blurs). Don't forget to set you white balance correctly. I always ask to attend the rehearsal which give me a chance to play with the lighting conditions as well as get a feel for the ceremony.
