    Considering all of the work I've seen from you on here, I don't think you have anything to worry about!

    Hope to see some of the shots! :)

    Don't be nervous about your ability...you're a great photographer.

    Just don't forget anything...nerves can make you forget the most obvious things.

    Two tips I will offer is to pre-focus if you want shots of them coming down the aisle. Pick your spot, focus on it, and wait for them to walk into it, then shoot. That's the one I could have used. The camera I normaly shot with at the time I thought had a very reliable autofocus.
    Boy was I wrong but a little quick thinking saved me.

    The other tip is simply this. DON'T FORGET TO HAVE FUN.

    Good luck, and I can't wait to see them.

    You'll do great.

    Do take the time to check out the location before the shoot. I had a wedding where the bride wanted to get married in front of a west facing window, in an old CCC restaurant (dark wood interior - floors, walls and ceiling) at 5:00 PM.

    If I hadn't checked out the location before the ceremony, I would have panicked when I got there. On the upside, I wasn't satisfied with the pictures after attempting to adjust for the bride's wants.......but she and the family were very happy with them.
