I guess this is the proper place to post this. If it isn't someone please send me a digital slap in the head and move it to the correct forum.

Normally I just stick with sports but I just got contracted for my first wedding and was hoping someone could point me in the direction of some top notch books/magazines/sites so I don't walk into this looking like an idiot. (I should say "a total idiot.")

Thanks.

I'll skip the "run away, don't do it" posts. Let's start with: what gear do you have at your disposal? You need the right gear and to know how to use it. What body, what lenses and what flash guns do you have?

There is quite a lot of information right here, if you take some time to search the forums - there is currently one going in the Tips and Tricks. Just type Wedding into the search box at the top of the page. Preparation is key. Work with the B&G beforehand to determine their expectations.

Thanks Brian. Yeah I was a little lazy. I scanned the forum section titles and didn't see anything specific to weddings. I'll check out the T&T section.
