4.0 out of 5 stars At last..a true book that really does help you make the push to shoot a wedding.., 27 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wedding Photography: The Complete Guide (Hardcover)
Buying a good book to help you shoot a wedding for money is a serious hit and miss business on Amazon, as more often than not, if you had the chance to browse a book first, then you probably wouldn't buy it!

Not the case with this book. It really does take you step-by-step on almost every aspect of wedding photography, from the right equipment down to timings of events, questions you should be asking the bride/clients down to digital post processing/ workflow advice.

The writer also gives great advice as to how to best utilise light and compose a shot effectively. The book has hundreds of very good photographs throughout.
Peppered throughout the book are valuable tips and pointers, and I really get the feeling that the writer genuinely wants the reader to succeed.

The only reason why I am scoring this book 4 stars instead of it's deserving 5 stars is that it is horribly out of date for the digital shooter..which this book really is aimed at.

In the book, a Canon EOS 5d is considered a pro camera and it's easy to see that at the time of writing, a 5d was serious cutting edge gear.. the writer even entertains the notion of a point and shoot, as was common when digital started out.
If only they could revise this book and try and update it...it would and still in many ways SHOULD be the first book any aspiring wedding or events photographer should buy.

I must take issue with you over your Canon 5D comment. The 5D is undoubtedly still regarded as a pro camera (take a look at any issue of any photo mag and see how many great shots are taken with this model even today).
I'm not a 5D (or even Canon) user but I am a wedding photographer with over 30 years experience and would happily shoot any wedding on a 5D.
