1+ remind them several times if need be that

this is a once-in-a-life-time experience and

they deserve to find a pro who has the experience

and equipment to do the job right

(the last wedding i went to the pro had a dedicated helper

which amoung other things was needed for gentle crowd-control.

He also had video equipment. And pro equipment (pro-camera, pro lenses,

pro-flash and probabl a lot more stuff i didn't see). and he

probably also had a high-performance computer (time is money

and everybody hates slow programs) and a nice collection

of image processing programs. Also i think the pro has

some obligation to keep the images around for several years
