    Pay me to do it.

    Some tips:
    1. Use ISO 400 or 800 film. NPH 400 is highly recommended. $6.50 per roll. Rate it at ISO 320. NPH gives smooth skintones and nice contrast suitable for wedding and portraiture. If you want to try ISO 800, use Press 800 rated at 640.

    2. Let the official photog handle all the formals, keep an eye on what's happening and catch the candid moments.

    3. Use bounced flash with a bounce card if situation allows. This will give you soft, natural lighting. Whenever possible, shoot available light. Having a fast lens helps.

    A few good books:

    1. Wedding Photography - Getting Perfect Results Every Time by Ian Gee.

    2. Wedding Photography: Art, Business, and Style by Steve Sint

    3. The Art of Wedding Photography: Professional Techniques with Style by Bambi Cantrell

    Thanks for your compliments!

    Basically, it's about the same. Just that with a digicam, you have to take into account the shutter lag. So you will want to prefocus a lot while anticipating the action.

    The rest of the stuff should be similar to film/DSLRs. Never really tried shooting weddings with a digicam though I have one. The performance is just not good enuff for me. But do give it a go. It can be quite fun to do.

    Alternatively, you can take the pay, pay me, then I do it lor.

    Wide angles are good for group shots. If you can, use a wide angle prime as they tend to be sharper.

    A mid-zoom is useful for the general shots of the event. Something like a 28-70 or 28-105 will do nicely. If you have a 28-70 f2.8, that will be very good. A 50mm will also do, if you don't mind a lot of walking around. If you are using a consumer zoom like I do (28-105 f3.5-4.5), stop down the lens a bit, e.g. f/5.6. Don't use it wide open as they tend to be a bit soft. Not good for group shots.

    A short tele (~85mm to 135mm range) is good for doing closeups and some of the formal portraits. Also good for shooting closeups of the speaker on stage. An 80-200 f2.8 is nice, but heavy. So if you have a 105 macro or something, you can use that.
