I agree with that 100%, Jim.  That said, I am not good at posing people, so
if someone wants me to do a wedding, I urge them to hire someone who
specializes in them.  I recently had a long-time friend ask me to shoot her
wedding, and I tried to get her to use a wedding guy.  SHe told me she
wanted me to do it, my way.
   I agreed, and compromised a little bit with several posed shots, though I
was uncomfortable doing that.  It did have a happy ending, except we have no
shot of them cutting the cake, because I had blended into the crowd so much
that they forgot to call me to the other room.
   P.S. They liked the pics.
