One thing to consider is whether a foundation has sunscreen in it or not. Makeup artists will tend to avoid foundations with sunscreen for events where you will be photoigraphed (such as weddings!) because they tend to contain titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide may give your face a white-ish cast with flash photography. AFAIK, MAC Studio Fix Fluid contains sunscreen (has SPF 15) so you might want to test out how it looks on you in flash photography before you commit to using it your wedding. (BTW, I use MAC Studio Fix Fluid myself and love it, but will not be using it for my wedding)
For MAC foundations, the Studio Stick (or the airbrush makeup) is considered the best for flash photography. I don't know about the new Studio Sculpt.
Right now I am trying out Makeup Forever (MUFE) HD Foundation and am really liking it. I'm going to get airbrush makeup by a pro for my actual wedding, but will probably use the MUFE foundation for other situations where my pictures are being taken. It's quite long-wearing and natural-looking. If you have a Sephora around you, you could make an appointment with someone there to try it out. I've also used Clinique Superfit, which also photographs well, but IME, doesn't come in as many shades as either MAC or MUFE.
I have oily skin, and have found that MAC Studio Fix, MUFE HD, and Clinique all wear well on my skin. Others tend to just slide off my face at the end of the day.

It's not a bad idea to go to a counter...I was thinking of going to a MAC one to do a one-on-one. Let us know how it goes.
