I'm going to be doing a friends wedding photos and I I didn't want a standard flash which I happen to have. I wanted more of a ring flash. I checked online a little and I didn't really come up with anything useful.

I hope you had better replies in other groups... A ring flash is limited in distance coverage, and I"ve always thought of them as something for macro shots. I'm guessing you would be better served with a 3 light strobe setup using umbrellas/reflectors as needed, and fill flash on camera; and using a key light. The better the lighting, the more professional the results. Trick is to figure out what you need way before the wedding by metering the location. Installing the lighting, and metering/checking, until you like what you get. There are web sites that can show you different lighting setups and what real-time changes look like, so you can decide how to proceed. You don't have to buy, as you can rent the lighting system, and even have experts set it up for you! :)
