I personally prefer shooting a photojournalistic wedding. This means you need to get close to the action and get close
to your subjects. Be sure to walk slowly, where dark clothing, and carry a minimum amount of equipment to be more
mobile. Use a long zoom on at least one of your cameras (e.g. a 70-200mm F2.8) to take tight shots. Also be sure to
capture the little details…
One thing I learned was to shoot with post production in mind: sometimes, an awesome effect is to shoot details in a
scene, and other events around that scene, to compose a vignetted collage. A lot of the album design software
available out there lends itself well to this approach (check this album out as an example:

Have to agree on the advice to avoid weddings until you become a very competent photographer. The best way of
getting some experience is asking some pro if you can act as a second photographer - no pressure and gives you a
chance to try out your skills and learn..

Tip #1: Ask yourself if you are really willing to take the risk that the couple will hate you rest of their lives.
People tend to have huge expectations for wedding photos and often shooting conditions in the weddings are not
easy. So unless you have several years of experience in photography, pro-grade equipment and you feel really
confident, leave it to the professionals. And as a rule of thumb I would also say: “If you need to ask help for it in the
Internet, don’t do it!”
If I would be asked to do it, I would rather give them voucher to professional wedding photographer as a wedding
present than do it myself.

I’ve “done” a couple of weddings, just as backup to the professional: mainly for the group shots, getting him to pose
everybody up then pointing my lens over his shoulder.
And expose for the dress, nothing is worse than a bleached out Bride.
