Way over my head! Wedding photographers help needed
Feb 20, 2009

I need a lot of advice and guidance, preferably those who have shot weddings before.

I don't know how this happened, but my girlfriends mothers friend is on a tight budget for photography for her wedding. I am not worried about making a big "profit" and am willing to rent anything necessary to make the shots turn out well.

To make things worse, I am young and only 21 (and in school for design-not photography) and am not overly familiar with wedding progression. I've told her this but she seems destined to use me and my girlfriend as photographers. I've recommended to use a "pro" photographer but she says she has searched and they are all out of her budget.

I currently have a 50D, a 50mm 1.4, 8GB sandisk CF, and a speedlite 430exii.

I need suggestions on rentals (24-70, maybe 16-35 for wide? 580 speedlite? Battery grip?)

It will be in July, hopefully with nice weather, so maybe a disc reflector? Any advice from those who can help me out? Thanks so much.
