OMG... Wedding shoot???
Feb 3, 2004

Ok, nice dpreview-ers. I am crying for help.

I just got a photo shoot request for a wedding. I think I will be the main photographer there. (I know.. what were they thinking??) I have never done wedding and I am actually freaked out. Help.. Any kind of suggestions are more welcome. Books, Sites, Lens suggestions, etc. Anything.

Wedding is not going to happen for a while so I got some time to study and practice/experiment.. but I don't even know where to look. I have visited few really good wedding photographer's websites,(i.e. http://www.idcphotography.com ) and though, it's not overnight thing, but I will do whatever it takes to be pretty good like those guys.

Also.. I have 28-135 IS lens and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. Which one is more appropriate? I thought 70-200 would be nice, so I won't get in the way of people, but still be able to capture natural moments. Also.. nice blurred background to get the subjects stand out..as they should be in this very important ceremony....
