He shares experience in easy to read and understand writing and I find it refreshing that he isn't so dogmatic about the equipment (i.e. must have 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 and 85mm f/1.4 lenses, FF sensor and so on). He explains many things not only in technical terms but also why it makes sense from business standpoint and how to be efficient and to maximized your time and profits.
I do think people who are drawn to this field of work have high artistic sensibilities but sometimes lag behind in business acumen necessary to achieve commercial success. He addresses this issue from get go and makes no bones about what type of commitment is needed to succeed in the business.
I enjoyed his take on what his "wedding repertoire" is as well as the chapter on postures and poses. An excellent read for any budding wedding photographer.
I recently turned my hobby into a business. I'd taken many wedding photos, for friends of my sons. Turning that into a paying job required a little instruction. This book certainly filled that bill.
The author goes into many particulars about the wedding photography business. What equipment do I need? What should I pack in my bag for the day of the shoot? What should I charge? What do I do with the photos after the shoot? Best editing program? (I use Lightroom) Where do I send photos for post production?
There are also some great tips for poses and lighting.
I ordered several books on the topic. This is my go-to reference.
Some of the other useful information is the business end of it. I'm a photographer, not a business guy... but this helped me feel a lot better about how to do marketing, and the business of wedding photography.
