The reason I haven't posted about it sooner? I just found out today.

Long story.

Anyway, all I have is a Rebel XT, no flash but onboard flash... Just the regular lense and a 70-300 lense.

I am so screwed.

Any tips or ideas?

Not a paying gig... My wife offered to do it as a wedding gift and I got stuck doing it.

Anyway, it was in a mormon church which doesn't allow pictures anyhow. The wedding party didn't even know it!!

LOL Good thing, built-in flash is about the worst to work with.

Well I would not be worried.

You get what you pay for I guess! I understand you want your pictures to be great despite making $0 from it but nothing you can do on such a short notice!

Either way Im sure they are great you take some great pics man! :)

Man I am glad I am not in that situation... I made a pact with myself to never shoot weddings... nothing good can come from it ESPECIALLY for a friend... and if they know nothing about photogrpahy its even worse as they will dream of a 30 grand photoshoot and get a snapshot...

Good luck - hopefully its not a bridezilla...

Well, I'm pretty disappointed... some of the pics were blurry and the wedding party was VERY uncooperative. The flower girl insisted to make "funny" faces and wouldn't listen to anyone who asked her to stop. All in all I only got a few good shots.
