hey MyTsharp, what's your experience on wedding photography? I understand it's your first, but was wondering if it's your first as the primary photographer or as just a 2nd shooter? I ask this because from what I heard, wedding photography is no joke. Even photographers who are excellent in other fields of photography, including portrait, feel that they aren't confident enough to be the primary shooter for their first wedding. They tag along to maybe 3 or 4 weddings as a second shooter just to get a feel of how much planning and pressure is involved. Again, you might already be aware of this, but just wanted to point it out anyway for those who assume that wedding photography is as easy as picking up a camera, lens, flash and just shooting. With that said, I wish you good luck with your first wedding and hope that you post some of your best shots on here.
For those looking to do weddings some day, here is a pretty good read on the general gear, tips and what to expect:
As for me, I'm planning to develop my photography skills in hope of making some sort of profit from the gear I have invested in...ie. weddings. However I don't see myself being ready to shoot one as a second or third photographer for another 2 years or so due to school and lack of proper equipment.
