Though I am not a "dummy" when it comes to digital photography, I have quite enjoyed several "...for Dummies" books for the simple reason that they are packed with information, in an easy to read format. "Digital Wedding Photography for Dummies" is no exception. In terms of wedding photography, I am not a pro, but have shot at weddings for friends and relatives as a back-up to their hired pro and captured, from comments I have received, some excellent shots (even back in the day with my trusty point-and-shoot, before I got into DSLR). Now I am toying with the idea of going pro and wanted to gain more perspective from people who are doing it. Author/Photographer Amber Murphy does a very good job in formatting the book and its contents.

As she says up front, you may not need to read all of it, just what you need to know at the time. That said, she starts off with the basics (like getting to know the future bride and groom to your gear selection) and guides you through what can be a stressful event if you are not fully prepared (like having extra battery packs with you, "just in case"). Covering topics such as various photographic styles, lighting, even editing photos after the event and how to present them to the couple is done with care and pretty good style. Again, easy to understand and follow throughout. Murphy finishes the book with creating a business plan, covering some of the legal basics and explaining various ways to grow your business which are logical and straightforward, however, being recently published it covers more areas than some, possibly even better - but older - wedding how-to books, making it more relevant to the times.

This book is written by someone with much experience in the wedding photography industry. The author explains how cameras work and what the functions do, and then spends the rest of the book explaining how the photographer's job is to tell the story of the wedding. She lists the different types of pictures you need to take (groom, groom with best man, groom with family, etc.) and also explains how to start a photography business. I bought this book knowing nothing about the topic but now feel much more comfortable when my own business takes off.

Format: Paperback
The "for Dummies" series are unique in their ability to digest complex topics into easy to consume morsels, and Digital Wedding Photography for Dummies is no exception. This book provides a fantastically visual guide into how to professionally photograph the entire wedding ceremony from an experienced, eloquent Amber Murphy. She illustrates concepts with colorful pictures that show the best way to position and frame subjects; I found myself flipping through the whole book even before I read it just so I could see all the beautiful shots. If you're looking to confidently photograph an upcoming wedding or want to broaden your portfolio as a photographer, then I recommend this book!

A friend told me this book was coming out several months ago, and I was definitely looking forward to its release. Once I received it in the mail, the first thing I did was thumb through just looking at the beautiful photos! Once I was through drooling over those, I started reading. I love the writing and formatting style of the Dummies books - so clear, helpful, and it just MAKES SENSE. Amber Murphy did a great job of communicating the information in an interesting way, complete with lots of examples of what to do as well as what NOT to do. As I was reading, I found myself asking questions, "What does that mean? What about _______? How do you ________?" etc. Each and every question was answered as I progressed in my reading. It's a thorough (but easy) and fun read! I recommend checking it out! It's a complete guide to help you get started with your own business, or even just taking better photos for your personal use.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Digital Wedding Photography for Dummies is a great resource for anyone thinking about or planning to photograph a wedding.

I am shooting my very first wedding this summer, and my nerves are all over the place. I am not a pro...nor do I want to be. My friends are also not expecting pro results, but I would sure like to give them some special shots that 'Uncle Joe' can't give.

Because of this, I've been researching wedding photography for quite awhile and have pinned and bookmarked many different articles on the subject, and while I didn't personally find any new or 'aha!' type of information in this book, it was great to have all the same info I'd previously found contained in one easy-to-reference place.

Amber Murphy shares many tips for shooting a wedding, some that are very common sense, but that can easily be forgotten if you haven't planned properly! My favorite tip was about the wedding rings. When photographing them, be very, very, VERY careful! You don't want to lose them!

Exactly! Seems awfully obvious, doesn't it?? Well, seeing that my sister and I lost my husband's wedding band in a pond during our 10th anniversary wedding shoot... um, yes... something very obvious is worth reminding a newbie wedding photographer!

I was also very encouraged by the wedding shots in the book - they weren't all that amazing. Don't get me wrong, they're very nice...I just mean, they weren't so professional or artistic that I felt incapable of getting similar shots at my own wedding job. The book gave me that 'I can do this!' feeling.

I was also glad Amber included the section on editing. Editing can take your photos from good to WOW if you know how to enhance correctly.
