Digital photography has dramatically changed the world of photography, not just of wedding pictures but of all photography. Yet, as this book shows, the more the world changes, the more it remains the same.

It's still up to the photographer to find the right instant to click the button on the camera. This book is a collection of about two hundred wedding pictures from around the world. It shows how the best wedding photographers from around the world produce wedding albums that delight their customers, who in turn recommend them for other weddings.

Beyond taking the picture, this book shows the result of using Photoshop to enhance the pictures. This is not a book on Photoshop, it doesn't say how to do this, it just shows a lot of pictures that have been Photoshopped to produce an image better than what the camera saw.

This book is an excellent step by step guide to the actual wedding shots that you need to take. It has excellent posing tips from the brides formal shots through to the reception. I found it to be extremely informative and a must have for my needs.

Nobody wants to mess up when shooting a wedding! This book has everything you need to know to do a good job, whether you're being paid or just trying to take great photos as a guest. In fact, anyone who is not a pro and wants to shoot a wedding of a friend or relative absolutely must read this book first.

Format: Paperback
This book truly lives up to its title. The wedding images in this book are some of the finest in print anywhere.

The author takes the time to explain the making of a great wedding photograph. There is a heavy influence of great wedding photojournalism and the pictures included are just stunning.

There is something in this book for every wedding photographer regardless of your skill level. I learned a lot of new image ideas with this book.

The book is very basic and there is nothing really that gives a wow feature in comparison to other photography books that I have purchased. You can get this information online and free, do not buy.

Wedding photographers looking to update their skills will want to study this book. The pictures alone are worth the price. I'd buy it even if I couldn't speak English!

While the book is a thin 128 pages, it's a large-format layout that allows showcasing the photos. Every photographer should have this book as a sourcebook of ideas.
