It's the most important day of your life. Get good pictures. I shoot a lot of weddings, but I never forget that this is the most important day in the lives of two people. Sometimes people ask me how much time I work on a wedding day. The answer is "from the time I wake up, until I take the last photo at the limousine and say "have a long and happy life together." Long before I arrive at where the bride is dressing, I am concentrating on making the best visual record I can of the day. My checklist items begin two days before the wedding. They begin with charging batteries and end with loading the car. The task is not to produce a product, but to create a treasure. That is the foremost thought in my mind the entire day.
