Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this practical, thorough guide to building a successful career as a wedding photographer, the authors draw upon many years of experience as they discuss various kinds of wedding photography as well as cameras, lenses, lighting, and other equipment needed in this highly specialized area. The book then takes readers through the various "phases" of typical wedding ceremonies, with many excellent tips on how to make effective photographs in each situation. The book is illustrated with a number of first-rate color and black-and-white photographs that effectively reinforce the authors' advice. Wedding photography can be quite lucrative, but it's also a risky business. This book can be very helpful to anyone contemplating a career in this challenging field. Recommended for public libraries and other libraries where there is interest in photography books for advanced amateurs and professionals.?Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, Ill.

Format: Paperback
I write as an intermediate amateur photographer (with no intention of turning professional) who is about to photograph my first wedding. The Hurth and Hurth book has over 100 photos of weddings, many of them classy, but I think the photos have two problems. First, many are too small to show important details. Second, less than a third of the photos are in color, and the color is not reproduced very vividly. On the other hand, I liked the extensive text, especially the grey "Shooter's Log"s with anecdotes about things that go wrong at weddings, and the grey "Reader's Note"s in the sidebars with helpful hints.

I was asked by my sister to photograph her upcoming wedding. I had been "fooling around" with photography for a number of years and at one point considered becoming a professional photographer. Well, life has a way of altering our plans and I have remained an amateur photographer. But I wanted to do a good job for my sister and produce solid photographs.
I looked at dozens of books and finally stumbled across "Wedding Photographer's Handbook, The Complete Guide". I will admit, the book could use an update, but the basic information is all there.
The first thing I liked is that the authors put all the really important information right up front. They discuss the "Four Photographic Categories" a photographer should address at a wedding such as "Command Photographs" and "Must Get Photographs". The authors also provide the reader with a "Wedding Candid Checklist", which can be used when sitting down with the bridal couple to identify which photographs they would like taken.
The book also discusses how a wedding photographer should conduct themselves during the job and even offers suggestions for how a wedding photographer should dress when attending the wedding. And all of this information is in the first chapter!
Chapter two goes on to discuss the equipment that will be needed. They discuss types of flash units and what types of filters will be needed. There is a wonderful section on the "Five Lighting Choices", which includes easy to understand instructions for correctly lighting your subjects.
The next six chapters of the book divide the wedding into events such as the "Wedding Ceremony", "Back to the Altar" and the "Cocktail Hour and Reception" to name just a few.

Format: Paperback
This was informative for the aspiring wedding photographer. It was however a bit dated in both its style and the included photographs. The author needs to write an updated version and include photographs from this decade!
