That's why so many wedding photogs shoot to a formula.  The more you control the variables, the less there is to go wrong.  Unfortunately, those "variables" are things like people, emotions, spontaneity, all that good stuff.  Being an enthusiastic amateur at a wedding has its appeal, for sure.  Responsibility?  We don' need no steenkin' responsibility!
