My sister is getting married at the end of this year, in south carolina(we live in texas, her fiance's family lives in SC). Now, before they were even engaged, my sister told me she wanted me to photograph her wedding. I've never done portraits before. They had a couple options: A) Fly one of my mother's close friends who is a photographer out to SC and have her take the pictures. Would have to pay for her lodging and meals. B) Hire a professional... the ones we found charged an arm and a leg. C) Have me bust my ass and try to do the best job possible. I'd already be flying out there anyways. Now, back to me never doing portraits. Can someone provide me with either information or links to information about taking portraits? My camera isn't "top of the line" or anything, it's just a digital rebel XT.. would that be fine? I'm assuming I will have to at least invest in some more lenses, and better lighting. Any tips for that? I know it probably doesn't seem like the best idea for me to do this, but I think my sister would really like it if I did...and I have a few months to prepare. If you guys could help me out, that would be amazing.
