    motion shots

    To get the sense of motion in your pictures you could try and sync the flash at a slower shutter speed to get some blur and have the flash "freeze" some of the action on stage.

    Where's the best place to get wedding photos developed?

    If your taking pictures as a "professional" I would definitely use a professional lab. I had some bad experence with "one hour" services and would not trust them with anything as important as a wedding.
