Default Ideas needed for Wedding Photography related articles

hello gorgeous people,

I want to write some wedding photography related articles and wanted to poll to see which one is the favourite (so that I can start writing that first). You could either reply to this thread or send me a PM.

Here goes:

- How to look good for the camera on your wedding day
- How to cut wedding photography bills
- Tips on choosing the right photographer
- Reasons not to ask uncle Bob to photograph your wedding
- Melbourne's best location for wedding photography (that's the only location I'm familiar with so far).
- Any other wedding photography related ideas

Thanks again people, have a lovely day

Reasons not to ask uncle Bob to photograph your wedding is a consumer education article. It is badly needed. It has been done hundreds of times already. It is badly needed. Badly needed. Not for us (well for some of us who get volunteered for the task), but for the general bride/consumer.

Thanks for the input Stevie, I agree it is badly needed. Although written hundreds of times, it is still badly needed. If I manage to convince just one couple, I'll consider it a success.

Sadly, the photo in the thread mentioned is taken by a "professional"

I agree completely, though my nephew and his intended did practically beg me to photograph their wedding, and were happy with the results. It is a lot of work. The preparation and post processing are time consuming, and if uncle Bob doesn't know all this beforehand, nobody is going to be satisfied. (I'm not a wedding photographer, but I did do my homework)

Another subject might have to do with the various posed pictures and candids which should be standard. A third might be why the official photographer needs to have an assistant with a baseball bat to keep the drunken friends and relatives with cameras out of the way.

4th. Carry personal protection.... and no, I do not mean s-x protection though that might be needed when the drunken bridemaids decide they are horny and anybody with a big lens is game. Personal protection is a weapon, specifically to shoot the Son of Beeswax that tries to use your camera and big lens as a hammer to pound the tent stakes back into the ground.
