you are talking without knowing Uncle Franks work. Uncle Frank has been shooting weddings for a long time and if you did a little research here before making these comments you would know it. I have seen some samples of his work posted here that are absolutely stunning.

take a look at some of his work in these posts and you will see that he is very well prepared for the job

people have most likely hired worse photographers for a wedding but
you should be aware of the responsibility a couple is trusting you
with. this is not a day to be messing around with.

you are here hoping your 1000 dollar lens will make you look better
than you really are but you cant even get it in focus. you cant
take every picture with that lens when the day comes and with all
the comotion, your focusing skills will only be worse.

if that is all you can muster, you would be slapping them in the
face to take the job.

it is not uncommon for underperforming wedding photographers to get
sued either. if you dont live up to expectations, you are going to
hear some bitter comments at a minimum and it might effect your
future intrests to jump in too early, before you know what your
doing.

you need practice.
