Thanks for all the advise.
To clarify I have already said I will do a limited range of formal shots and this has been agreed.
Thanks for the tip on the group shot luke.

As a professional wedding photographer with some 30 years experience, I would suggest that you leave well alone UNLESS you know you have sufficient knowledge, ability and confidence to take on as important a task. If you do, have a back up camera, bracket each shot, have an assistant to check exposures and position reflectors etc. Be in control of the guests, in particular the children, and make sure that you have taken all the 'standard' group shots before people drift off to the reception bar.

[quoteI have been asked to take the wedding pics at a friends wedding]

Good luck, but don't mess up, you may not be friends afterwards. As long as you have explained you're not a pro, they should know what you can do. I wouldn't charge them for anything except the prints. Make sure all batteries are charged, all memory cards ok and camera ok. Use the ushers for rounding people up, if no ushers, get the bride & grooms Mum's to get people in order, they like to be doing something, at weddings getting people together can be like herding cats Smile Be friendly & smile Smile
I wouldn't like to do it myself, but I hope it works for you.
