    I did something similar at my cousin's wedding last summer. I exposed 8 rolls of 35mm, 4 b&w 400 and 4 Kodak NC 400. Kameras: Nikon F3 and FE. Two primes:50 and 24mm. They were happy enough with the result and I got time enough to enjoy the wedding. The wedding was really low key, probably more relaxed than most and I did not have to make any formal photos. If you would like you can see the best exposures at my flickr:

    Yeah, my brother's was the last, 'Oh, you have a camera so you can be our photographer' wedding. I am in wedding photography retirement. Have been for two years. Of course, it's been that long since I have been invited to a wedding. Maybe I need to start letting my friends know I'll do it again. I miss weddings. Nah, not that much.
    Thank you.

    I was asked last Wednesday how much I would charge to do a wedding on Saturday - 4 days later. "It'll be very small and informal" - ie - we're looking for cheap. It was not the couple asking, but a close family member. I said it would depend on what the couple wanted, that I couldn't discuss pricing until I talked to them. I wasn't interested in doing digisnaps that would be printed at Costco. (I implied I was NOT cheap). I never heard about it again, but I'll ask next time I see her how it went.

    Thanks Erik! Had a quick look and they look fine to me. This wedding is VERY low key but I think the bride to be may smack me if she doesn't get some decent shots

    I hate to say it Mr. Glass but I think that for this one, I may rather be taking pictures

    I was asked to take some pics at a family wedding 3 years ago, although they hired a "pro" (quotes deliberate) for the main shots. It was a learning experience I strongly recommend using flash at the reception - I tried to do 3200-6400 or higher ISO shots (on Delta 3200 and Tri-X) with no flash to not ruin the mood, but that largely didn't work out (lighting was turned down extremely low - I tried metering it, it came out to 3-4 EV generally). Also, it was an open bar and the guests were very well lubricated and couldn't have cared less about flash at that point
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    Yes, flash will likely be a must here. Weather is going to be awful probably and most, or the entirety of the event, will be inside. Considering that it is a restaurant, I doubt that lighting will be anything great. I will bring a Leica fitted with a Noctilux and a few rolls of Delta or P3200, just in case.

    Make sure to talk it out with your wife, you will not be able to pay her any attention until the wedding is over. It's not that you don't care, it's that you are occupied.

    Do you have the flexibility at this point to add a guest to the roster? Maybe you can have your wife bring a best friend so she won't miss you.

    Do you have an ability to add a second shooter? It seems you are already committed to the event. Maybe having a second shooter would be a good idea should something go really wrong. You won't be losing your friend and your couple will have some pictures from their day.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
