Re: Help - volunteered to photograph a wedding

The best thing to do is to attend the pre marriage rehearsal to get an idea of what they want, where to shoot, lighting and to discuss with the minister what he feels comfortable with in relationship to shooting positions.  The rehearsal would give you an idea of the focal length of lenses you need also.

A lot of ministers and even the bride and groom prefer to have no flash, very important to know before the wedding.

I've done several weddings, but I am not a wedding photographer and if I didn't have a chance to attend the pre marriage rehearsal I would probably not agree to do the wedding, but that is just me.

Good luck.
