Adam Waring Editor Enlist the assistance of the bossiest in-law you can find to round up and organize the rest of the guests for those all important group shots. adam.waring@futurenet.com Jason Parnell-Brookes Technique Editor Invest in a D850 and use the electronic shutter for unobtrusive shooting, especially if you’re aware of a shy bride and or groom. jason.parnell-brookes@futurenet.com Ben Andrews Lab Manager Church lighting can be less than ideal, so don’t be afraid to use high ISO sensitivities, or pack a monopod.

the morning preparations

1 Keep your distance Don’t get too close, it’s not your right as the chosen photographer to own the place. So put on a 50mm, ask the makeup artist if it’s okay to get closer, get your shots and get out of there. Capture the rest from a distance with your 70-200mm, be discreet.
