Assistance from tips that are great:
1. Arranging photography equipment. Make sure to have your camera checked so you can be sure it is in good working condition. Be prepared with more cameras you can use just in case they are needed.
2. The batteries. Have they been charged to full energy? Do you possess two to three spare sets? Back up batteries may come in handy, it’s something you don’t want to take a chance on when the first dance comes up.
3. Film rolls/memory cards. You will save hundreds by not using a pro, so get a lot, as it’s very low cost. Just like the batteries, you wouldn’t want to take out the camera at the first dance and discover.
