All those great wedding photographers out there, please come in and share tips for taking better pics, things to avoid, things that must bring, weird experience to tell, please come in and share.;)

I start, i always ensure myself to clear away shoes in front of doors, cos never want my groom and myself to be tripped over by those sister's high heeds.

I would like to tag along to learn more, dont mind carrying the bag for you.

Back to the threat:
Bring calender of the month in case cant find a calender in the bride house. Chinese tradition ones with the day big big printed.

And check ur battery of the flash.

Personal experience from my sister wedding.

First thing first, i am in no way any Guru, so to speak .... i am just a poor artist, surviving and living on a simple Faith and personal Believe. :embrass:

For those wanna tag along, yes, there will be opportunities ...

For my small contribution to this Thread :

Always disciplined to have your "Equipments Check" the Night before the wedding day job.
- go thru battery strenght indicator, and replace batteries, even if it show half-strength
- Check your CCD for any traces of Dust and spots ( Same goes to your lens )
- Setup your cameras and flashes and fire 2 shots and check your LCD previews ( for any faults )
- water-proofs & shock-proofs your CF Cards ( Back-ups & Spares ).
- Set two alarm clocks, at 20-mins intervals, for your wake-up calls ( if one fails )


Simple procedures, but might save your life and career One day, you never know :sweat:

Enchanted, yes....i can ID with you on equipment check. Nearly screwed up once when i already brushed my teeth and happy happy went to bed at 11PM, but last min did an equipment check. Found out that my 2GB CF card was left in the office! Bo bian, have to dash back to office, luckily it is just 30 minutes away. Ended sleeping at only 12.30AM and had to pop in sleeping pills because the brain was all charged up and was afraid that i could not sleep.... :embrass: Next day pretty shag, of course.

Imagine if i did my equipment check at 6AM.

always sling on shoulders, cos you may miss the best moments of a shoot if your camera is a distance away.

you don't have to do this yourself, I'll tell the sisters, to prevent people step and damage thier shoes and also don't want the brothers do funny things about their shoes, please keep it inside the house.
