I've read through about 50 threads on here but haven't found an answer to my question, so here goes: Same story as always. I'm shooting my first wedding on August 24th for some friends. I intend to shoot the wedding with a D200 and D50 as backup. An SB600 and a second flash as backup and primarily with a 50 1.8 and 24-70 f/2.8. I'm not too worried about getting good shots (I will be the night before though!) But I don't really know the order to do things. I'll probably meet up with them a few weeks before for an engagement shoot but the day of how does the timing work? My best guess is, the morning of, before the ceremony shoot the location, before the ceremony itself, shoot the bride getting ready, her with her parents, MOH, that stuff. Also groom with his friends, getting ready, maybe with the bridesmaids. During the ceremony, shoot the ceremony (I think I got that one right for sure ) After the ceremony take formal shots of the bride and groom together, also other formal shots with family. Anything I missed? It seems that some photographers take a ton of formal shots of the bride and groom and sometimes in multiple spots around the wedding location. How do you have time to do this? Thanks!
