Tips for Wedding Photography Newbie
I'm not a new photographer, but I'm going into weddings for the first time. I know many of you are highly experienced... So, I was wondering if you guys/gals have any good tips or experiences to share.
Maybe you can also tell me what are the key things that a wedding photographer is "expected" to take... eg. for tea ceremony who are the important people, whether need to take the banquet stage decoration, etc... I mean some times may seem common sense, but I'm sure there are some things that wedding couples expect from their photos.
This will be good tips for me too as I'll be getting married in Sept 2005. Haha... maybe will post an ad for photographers for my actual day at a closer date.. But for now, do give me any tips and suggestions okie?
Oh yah, I know that many wedding photographers have their own portfolio.. So I'm also creating one for myself. Anything else??

would advise you to have a back up photographer, especially if you are a newbie and are likely to do public service.
Expectation will still be equally high, from the families, vs what they have seen their friend's son / daugther / grand kid's wedding photos taken professionally.
Lastly, as to subject to shoot, just follow your instinct and were the loudest noise / happening are and SNAP.... practise makes perfect....

So I should say the most important tip is learn to communicate with the couple to know what they want since it is their big day.
