More About the Author

Upon hiring Michelle Turner to photograph you, two rather delightful things are soon to happen: You'll certainly come away with an album full of emotionally acute photographs -- but it's going to be delivered in a style that's also funky and fashionable. For Michelle, those aren't contradictory means to an end, it's simply the essence of her technique. Peek inside her Maine studio, or follow her to the destinations she shoots all over the world, and you'll find her crafting colorful, even occasionally grungy portraiture that is uniquely Michelle's. But it's how she manages to imbue both her shots and your experience with a fun, laidback vibe that will have you connecting with her in an entirely familiar, friendly way.

Michelle is both a coveted national speaker and author and has published two books about fashionable wedding photography. She is an alumna of Georgetown University and worked on her Master's at Dartmouth. She currently resides in Maine in the summer and spends most of the winter photographing weddings in Mexico and Central America.


Michelle's work has appeared in many regional, national, and international publications.

I don't like the book's name as it's not descriptive. It is accurate as the book is (c) 2008 and I'm writing this in 2008. But so much is changing in wedding photography, in 2 years the "NOW!" will be out of date.

This book is admittedly pretty thin and generic (and maybe deserves only 3-4 stars because of it), and is geared to those with at least some photographic expertise starting out in digital wedding photography (I don't recall film being mentioned). This book's main focus is to give an advanced amateur photographer new to weddings a high level walk-through of the shooting and production side of the wedding photography business, so be advised I rated it a 5 based on it's reaching that goal. I appreciate the author's viewpoint that just because the photojounalistic style is currently all in vogue with photographers (and certainly used by the author), it is not the end-all-be-all for your customers (read that bride+mom) who want it all - traditional as well as tasteful "modern" approaches in their wedding shots. The author does a decent job of showing that blending.

I would summarize it as a wedding week "overview workflow" on what kind of shots to get, how to get them, and how to deal with the individuals you're photographing. Search Amazon on "photography workflow" and 99% of what you'll get is Lightroom/Photoshop workflow books. This one is a "shots workflow", but it's NOT a bullet list of what photos to take - it's more of an idea book to spark your imagination a little (and has given me a few new ideas I'll probably be unconsciously using as I shoot weddings). Like the title says - "A Fresh Approach" to help knock the dust off...

If that's what you're looking for, then this is a good book and worth the price.

Format: Paperback
I've read many books that are supposed to serve as an introduction to wedding photography for serious amateurs or budding professionals. This is the best book that I have found.

1. This book is comparatively slim at 128 pages. Most of the other wedding photography books weigh in at over 200 pages; however, most other wedding photography books are also completely overloaded with filler material that is common knowledge to anyone but an absolute photography beginner (and absolute beginners shouldn't be in a position to photograph a wedding to start with). This book for example, spends only 18 pages talking about all of the equipment you'll need and gives only the details you have to know to make an informed decision about cameras, lenses, maintainence, flashes, computers, software, etc. This leaves more time for learning about how to take the pictures and isn't filled with useless paragraphs explaining how "cases and bags help protect camera equipment" like many other wedding photography books.

2. The first sign of an amateur when asking about how to recreate a photograph they see is "What shutter speed/aperture/ISO did you use?", as if by dialing in certain combinations of these parameters, a beautiful picture will suddenly emerge. Most authors will prominently label every picture in the book with their camera settings without offering any other insight into how they composed the shot. This information is useless to anyone who has more than the most basic understanding of camera function and already knows how to properly exposure a photograph. What I want to know is how the composition is formed, and this book delivers.

This little book was a fun, informative read. It's definitely for beginners, and gave a lot of basic tips on wedding photography and highlights on specific post processing techniques. It includes a nice amount of information for a meager investment. While my photography experience is above the level of this book, I think this book would be a nice addition to a beginner's library.
