It's sensible that a couple of picture takers avoid weddings no matter what. The stories I could relate calamities, performance, and excitement on a major day and in the event that you're a wedding picture taker, I am sure that you similarly have an arsenal of stories to fill a book. However one will need a Printer to print those pictures.
