Chapter 3. Beyond the Simple Snapshot > Weddings and Celebrations

3.4. Weddings and Celebrations

Whether the celebration is an elaborate wedding, a formal bar mitzvah, or a simple home birthday party, photos are a must. They preserve the details and emotions that everyone wants to remember. If there's no hired photographer—or even if there is—charge up your digicam. When they see the prints, folks often prefer the shots taken by guests over the formal professional photos.

One of the advantages you may have over the hired photographer is that you know people at the event. You're in a much better position to take candid, relaxed pictures of the guests that capture the true flavor of the day. Even so, be careful not to interfere with the professional photographer's posed shots. Introduce yourself to the photographer and ask if it's OK to take a couple of shots right after the pro has finished each setup. You'll generally receive permission—and the opportunity to capture the highlights of the day.
