Hey guys... helping a fren out tmr... just wanted to know what sort of attire is considered "acceptable"? Jeans and polo too casual? Pants and Polo? Or is the minimum Pants and long sleeve shirt?

Also, usually as the back-up, how should I position so as not to get in the main-guy's way? Esp for the gate crashing part and inside the house during the tea sessions...

TIA and hope that my questions dun sound too stupid... cheers...

Depends on the couples...

I believe a jeans and polo is acceptable in our norms. But for caucasian standards, they would dress up more to mebbe pants and long sleeve shirts. Check with your main photog.

As for being the back-up, dun get in his way and concentrate on getting shots which he would normally not cover.

For gate-crashing, it's good to have to have 2 photogs as one can cover from the grooms POV and the other can cover from the bride's POV. During tea sessions, the main needs to take the standard shots, you can try filling in with candids...
