With eyes closed I only go for them if it is a huge laugh so there is expression in the rest of the face to tell the story or when they are praying, apart from that try to avoid it.
I always beat myself up at the end of any shoot and then in review to pick up on all the details and changes for next time.

Thanks Mark you are great help, I watched that Masters Of Wedding Photography with Jerry Ghionis, Yervont, Joe Buissink, those guys are something else, to bad David Ziser wasn't in there as I think he is a top guy also, I just ordered his bookCaptured By The Light
