Default Book Suggestion

Need a suggestion on a Wedding photography book or web site.

Here a twist on the newbie question "I going to shoot my first wedding). I'm not a newbie but I am about 25 years out of date shooting weddings. So far from what I have been seeing all I can say is BOY HAVE THINGS CHANGED. Looking over some old notes and cheat sheets of mine (yes the paper is yellowed and cracked, like me) I can tell they are way out of date. Well no time like the present to get back into the swing of things, no problem, no pressure, it's like riding a bike. Wait a minute, the last time I rode a bike I broke four Ribs in seven places. For those who are going to asks; how did you get roped into this wedding? Well never put your pictures in a digital frame on your desk at work. Well good thing is I will have some pictures to post here at Steve's.

Thanks for the help,
Craig

Bynx, I don't think Viagra is the answer this time.

Craig, I could send Guido over to break some fingers. Could be less painful than doing the wedding.

You may be right, the more I think about doing the wedding the more I start to worry.

Hi Bynx,
Yes, checked my e-mail and downloaded the PDF file. Took a quick glance and it looks like it will be a big help.
I was volunteered to shoot this wedding by my co-workers who saw my last shoot of a 90th birthday. Beside if I don't shoot the wedding she will not have anyone to take pictures except for maybe Aunt Maybelle and the rest of the family clan.

Thanks again,
Craig

There have been quite a few threads here on the subject. The Tips and Tricks forum has a number of them also. A lot of the advice boils down to "prepare, prepare". Have a get together with B&G beforehand, check out the venue, have them assign a guest wrangler. If you aren't getting paid big bucks, they should be providing a good bit of assistance. brian

VT,
I always prepare, it's just the style of pictures being taken now days are not the same as they were 25 years ago. Looking for suggestion on the new style of wedding photos, preparing so to say.
