My Epic Mistakes on Shooting Weddings

Previously titled (How To Shoot a Wedding: {The Ins and Outs & Epic Mistakes})

Take it from someone who's been there and messed that up: shooting a wedding is a fine art that takes time and experience to perfect. That's not to say you won't do a brilliant job photographing your first nuptial exchange, but one thing's for certain: learning from others' mistakes will help ensure a smooth first, second -- heck, even 20th -- wedding photography experience. 

In My Epic Mistakes on Shooting Weddings guide, you'll not only get a few laughs at the expense of my own past mess ups, you'll gain behind-the-scenes insight that will make you look like a seasoned pro even as a newbie wedding photog. 

The impressively detailed guide covers vital topics such as scheduling, shots to make sure you take to avoid getting sued, packing for the big day, what to wear, standard protocol for religious ceremonies and how to recover in the face of huge mistakes (like losing all your photographs). 

Oh, and we've got lists for you in this one. Lists on what photographs to take of the bride, groom, reception, ceremony location and extended family; lists on what to pack (from extra flash batteries to extra cloths); and lists detailing various "learn from my mistake" lessons.
