    My don't would be - don't do it! Can you imagine if you messed them up :rollin

    With a digital camera is OK as I guess you can see what you have taken as you go but I would recommend backing the photos up in triplicate as soon as possible :D

    Enjoy it..

    Preparation is key, try dividing the day up into 3, arrivals, ceremony, portraits.

    Enlist the help of the best man to herd everyone for the group shots

    Ask your sister to make a list of what photos she wants

    Make your own list for the day

    Look for inspiration from other photographers galleries

    Try and find a friend who might be able to provide you with a backup camera should you have problems with yours

    Shoot in raw and make sure you have lots of memory 4-8gb

    Know your camera inside out

    Dont get drunk until you've backed up the pics!!!!!
