    Shooting my first wedding soon, need some advice!

    pixmedic - they were planning to have a dove release but nixed that idea when the pastor said we couldn't bring shotguns. I'm going to see if I can get in the Church and look around to get a better idea of what I'll need. I'll bring my camera and try to get some test shots. Aside from the...

    Shooting my first wedding soon, need some advice!

    I'm a bit nervous to use only primes. I don't want to miss anything and don't want to be moving all around trying to get the shot and causing a disruption. Also, I don't think they would ever notice any slight improvements in quality. Am I missing anything?

    Shooting my first wedding soon, need some advice!

    I'd rather do it than see them pay someone $500 or more and end up with worse photos than I'll do for free. I'm not sure how it could get 'ugly' since I've told them up front and they are well aware that I'm not a wedding photographer.

    Tyler - what about the 24-70? Don't bother with it? I'll have to read up on the sigma. Is it worth renting even though I have the canon 1.8?

    I was planning on using the 5d3 like I use mine now to keep it familiar, as you suggest jaomul. There may be a better way to do it on the 5d3 but I don't want to risk trying something new, especially if I may be switching cameras. Robin - I saw on another board you are getting the new 24-70...

    Pgriz, I've either read those or have them bookmarked to read later. Would it be worth it to drag the studio lights along? Robin - are you saying I don't even need to rent the 24-70? The 35 I have is the F2 and is a bit slow on the focus compared to some.

    Shooting my first wedding soon, need some advice!

    Let me start off by saying that I told the couple (my BIL and his fiancee) several times that they should hire a real wedding photographer. Unfortunately they are young and funds are limited. One they talked to said they couldn't do indoor photos. :( I did their engagement photos and they...

    Small town bride

    It looks dreamy and unnatural, like a fairy tale or something. No bride would ever like that! Lol

    Tense Moment with Mother Deer

    That's an awesome shot of a snort. I think it's two wads of snot but it almost looks like two fangs, lol. You may actually be able to make a few dollars off it. It looks like something call or scent manufacturers may be interested in. As far as getting attacked, I'd be MUCH more worried about...

    Homless Shelter wants Photographer with no Ethics?

    My lack of understanding has nothing to do with "the homeless". I can't see your pov because you've never really said what it is. Please just answer this question: How would the photos you want to take be different than the photos you think they want you to take? If you can't describe post...

    You tell us what the problem is, as you are the one that apparently has one.

    Who actually on TPF is a paid working professional photographer?

    Amateur here. I've never been paid to take a photo, but I have made enough money buying and selling photo gear to pay for everything I have. Does that count for anything? lol I can't believe how freaking ridiculous some people are. Why get offended by such a simple question?

    I actually did think of having my 4 month old son hold a small pipe wrench.
