What a wedding photojournalism book needs a textbook type composition chapter for, I have no idea. A nice beginner's book for Wedding Photography. I loved the images and even Googled some of the Photographers' work.

What a wedding photojournalism book needs a textbook type composition chapter for, I have no idea. Things go downhill from there. The first chapter, which talks about the general wedding scene, atmosphere etc. makes you feel like it's building up to something. There's another chapter that mentions various scenarios, things to look out for etc. But otherwise you have the author quoting various & and posting & such as a certain angle of the I found the text more or less useless.

The book provides a quick, decent review of modern wedding photography. What I like about it are the many good and inspiring photos it contains. I think it also does a good job stressing the importance of non-photography related issues when running a business, e.g. the relationship with the clients (and tips on how to build it). What I don't like about it is that it very much stays at the surface. E.g. the equipment section doesn't mention hot lights, while the legend of many example photos says they were taken with hot lights - hey, among all photographers, wedding photographers probably use hot lights the most! The composition and design section rushes over the concepts on a few pages - if I wasn't already familiar with these concepts, I am not sure if I would have gotten much out of it. The album section showcases the products of a few manufacturers. That information I can find online or at my local photo store. Instead the book fails to give practical information, e.g. how many shots to present in a wedding album and guidelines on how to select them, i.e. which are the 'must have' shots? Also, while the book was recently updated (e.g. it includes a reference to Nikon's D3S), there is no mentioning of the possibility to print albums yourself. The author keeps writing about the necessity that "your lab must prepare these prints to size before submitting them to the album company for binding." Strange... Overall, I think this is a good, brief overview over most aspects of current wedding photography. It will provide you with some good ideas, but don't expect an in-depth, text book like treatment of the subject.

This trade seems to be flooded with newcomers, and there's a number of authors that are taking advantage of them with publications of all kinds that are high on promise, yet weak on content. This book is NOT one of them. Profiling the techniques and personal philosophies of the trade's top photographers, it offers the Zen of great wedding photography. Inspiring, educating and one of the best stimulators to the creative mind available on the subject today. This is a top notch book with much to offer, even to the experienced professional. A refreshing change, and truly a high-dividend investment to any wedding photographer, regardless of experience level.

There's no substitute for experience, but this might be the next best thing. By making a study of the photos and text, you'll know where to start on successful contemporary wedding photography. The book reveals the broad, amorphous and sometimes contradictory concepts that are lumped together as "wedding photojournalism", with some shots made without the subjects' awareness, others carefully posed, and most landing somewhere between these two extremes. Knowing how much of each to use when is the trick, and you'll get some good ideas from a variety of leading shooters.

The photography is good. If you are looking for pictures of weddings for possible ideas or just to see other photographers wedding photo journalistic styles, it's only an OK reference.

If you're looking for more advanced techniques on finding beautiful light, best poses for your subjects, as well as camera and flash techniques for the photo journalism style, there's not enough information here.

I haven't finished reading this book, but it gave me some great ideas and advice for a wedding that I had to do. It was my first wedding and I was beginning to panic, but after sitting down and going through this book I was able to show up to the wedding with confidence and the images turned out great. The bride was happy

This book has good layout and detail of the photos included. Even though most of the pictures were taken with Nikon cameras, the subject doesn't change, it's still based on shooting weddings.

It starts with the pre-wedding planning and finishes with the album and it's design. (As most of the wedding photography books are) It's a fast read and has some good photos to learn from.

If you were an assistant to a photographer, you probably know more than this book covers, but it's a great start for anyone who's just begining.
