I'm a total amateur and I think wedding photography would be very stressful if you don't know what your customer wants - it's the brides day. I think professional makeup is a must before the photographer even begins their job.

This thread has long since died, an I'm not trying to revive it. I just happened to find the image I was talking about earlier.
Images taken 5 minutes apart, just a few feet apart.

Rather than wait for the hired gun to get me a shot or two for the video case, I took my own.

I know it's all the rage to shoot "lifestyle", "natural light" or "documentary" style, but I just never wanted to be that guy. I wanted to KNOW what I'd create before I ever tripped the shutter.
Maybe I've just spent so much time around really good photography all these years on the road, and it's make me more critical.
But what I see in this photographer's work is racoon eyes, non-existent posing which makes both kids look larger than they are naturally, no detail in the sky or in that very expensive gown.
Photographer didn't even take time to place the subjects on GRASS!
