If you are trying to begin your career in wedding photography, you need, actually MUST, buy this book. Kenny describes every single details about what wedding photography is and some technical terms in digital photography.

Kenny Kim treats you with those special moments that he captured in many weddings he had a chance to do so in this book. Each photos are cited with the technical data of the camera like ISO, f-stop and shutter speed.

You will learn about his wedding photography style, and apply it as necessary to your own photography style. You will be amazed with a ton of information that you will find in this book. He explains clearly in his new book from general view on business aspect of wedding photography, how to capture those moments with compensating your exposure/composition, how to overcome those lighting challenges, must shots lists, and what to do to improve your post production workflow.

Dont forget to get his first book Digital Wedding Photographer's Planner where he gives you detail lists on MUST shooting lists on the wedding day.

I highly recommend you get this book NOW!!! You will appreciate that you have this book as I did.

Seeing the smiles on the faces of everyone as they review a set of wedding photos has to be the most rewarding part of being a Wedding Photographer. Easy right? Not so fast.....The planning and strategy of actually being a Wedding Photographer has now been described in Kenny Kim's book, "Digital Wedding Photogtraphy". Anyone who has said "I could do that" now has a place to go and see what it actually takes to successfully memorialize one of the most important Days and part of a Brides life. Quite a responsibility is mild compared to the expectations of everyone involved. This book walks through every aspect of being the Owner, Coach and Quarterback of the Super Bowl of Photography. If you are a looking for a very good read THIS ONE is it!.....You will be very happy you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great First Book on Wedding Photography March 25, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great first (beginner level) book on wedding photography, especially for those with limited experience both in wedding photography and photography in general. If you are an experienced photographer then there is little technical to be learned here (and some stuff seems over-simplified, lacking in depth). To get beyond the beginner level I would recommend Captured by the Light: The Essential Guide to Creating Extraordinary Wedding Photography. I would also recommend reading Joe McNally's three books on lighting; The Moment It Clicks: Photography Secrets from One of the World's Top Shooters, The Hot Shoe Diaries: Big Light from Small Flashes and Sketching Light: An Illustrated Tour of the Possibilities of Flash (Voices That Matter).

This is a great book to use to start learning about wedding photography but it should definitely NOT be your last as real world lighting situations and other issues are not addressed adequately IMO. Still, I did learn a few useful things and I am glad that I read this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wedding Basics May 18, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For a wedding photographer, getting bookings is the first and most important thing. Another author wrote more about advertising, what to do and what not to do. Kim's book is very thin in this respect. Shooting a wedding is not just what camera to use and how to compose a shot. If you can't shoot pictures, try another line of work. Most wedding photographers are mediocre.

Here's what I'd like to see: get the booking, have them sign a contract, shoot the wedding, and then post the shots on line or in a proof book. Kim does mention where on line to post images. And which labs to use. That's really useful.
