The bottom line: The bride cried like a baby when she saw her photos. Last week, I shot my first wedding. I broke every "rule" that I see on these forums: No written contract No backup camera No backup battery No backup flash (I did have extra batteries) No previous wedding experience Hey, it was a dear friend, who couldn't find / afford a photographer for a destination wedding. She paid my expenses, and I agreed to give it a shot. I'm glad I did, and so is she. Believe me, folks who shoot weddings full-time should not do it the way I did. I'm just saying that it can be done under certain conditions. Craigslist, here I come! I'm not in the $3,000 category (if you see my stuff, and disagree, I'll be glad to hear it!). Anyway, I just wanted to let y'all know how it went.
