    Get more information about it...i did my cousin's and it was in a church where I wasn't able to use a flash or be able to stand near the actual ceremony. I had to stand back far enough to where I would only be able to use a telephoto and shoot at f/2.8.

    Not a bad idea.

    I think its catholic, and my wife made the invites for it. But the girl thats inviting us is a HS friend of my wife and the preacher is their family friend. I just got asked the question tonight... but I have until Feb 21st for it.


    I told her to get me some info... so we'll see. I know catholic churches have a ton of restrictions, so I'm wanting to know what I want to bring when I do it.

    I've seen many Catholic Baptisms. The ones i've seen typically spend a few minutes at the beginning of Mass with family at the back of the church followed by the actual baptism which takes maybe 10mins. The overall service is probably 50-70minutes. There's never been a problem with someone going up and taking pictures. They certainly don't bring any off camera equipment though.
