Tony Marsh, who's based in Edinburgh, is another genius with a long lens - his background is in reportage and he's very good at 'stealing' shots without you even realising he's there. This one's from the wedding of John and Fiona at Kirknewton Stables.
One idea I often suggest is that with digital cameras and online photo-sharing, everyone can be the photographer: think about it. Your photographer can only ever be in one place at any given time (or two if there's an assistant), but your friends and family can get shots from angles they'll never be. You could create a free web-page and invite everyone to post their shots there. And given that some "photographic packages start from around £1500.." it's not just more creative, it frees up some cash!
I was surprised to get a potentially libelous comment on this post today from a disgruntled anonymous photographer with an axe to grind. I don't allow comments on my blog from people who aren't prepared to put their name to what they say, so if you want to express an opinion, have the courage to say who you are.
