I picked this book up in the book store

And started to thumb through it

The more I read, the more convinced

I was, that I needed this book

Steve Sint presents a no nonsense approach to the subject

Many authors tell you what you should do

but not how to do it

An example, is the chapter on Flash photography

He explains why he uses the flash in the manual mode

and the exact settings he uses

Most authors leave out all the details

This is a great book

at a reasonable price

For those of you looking to enter into the world of wedding photography, I definately recommend reading this book. Steve Sint takes a no-nonsense approach to the business of wedding photography and reveals a darker side to what many look down upon as a cushy way to make some easy money. The book is easy to read and offers some light humour in a package that provides several tips on how to overcome the many challenges faced by wedding photographers including lighting, group shots, posing, selling yourself and your work, and much more. This book assumes you already have some photography experience so if you are new to the craft it may not offer the photography basics that you should be starting with. Wedding Photography: Art, Business and Style would be a great resource for those of you with some photography experience who are considering stepping into the shoes of a wedding photographer OR photographers who have shot a few weddings and are looking for suggestions for overcoming the challenges associated with the profession.

Steve Sint's book is old-school, but not in a good way, and I just cannot get over his choice of images.

The 200-page tome is loaded with wedding photos, but they are mostly of the cheesy variety, right down to the double-exposure technique that lets you superimpose a close-up of a smiling bride over the interior of a chapel. To me, that photo epitomizes all that is corny and dated about wedding photography, and it drives home the reason why we desperately needed (and got!) a new school of wedding shooters -- Joe Buissink, Yervant, Bambi Cantrell, Jeff Ascough, Anna Kuperberg, Sean Watson -- to rescue the genre from death by embarrassment.

The business advice Sint offers is often pretty questionable too. Case in point: He presents another double-exposure shot where you see the exterior and the interior of a church at the same time, superimposed, and writes "If you're the only photographer in your area who shoots pictures like this, you'll get a lot of referrals because of its [sic] uniqueness." Yeah, in 1986, maybe. Most Gen X and Gen Y brides go wouldn't be caught dead with photos like that in their albums. Has Sint looked at a recent issue of, say, the Knot?

A large photo on page 17 shows a couple posing at Rockefeller Center in New York, and despite that location offering a wealth of cool angles, it's not much of a shot compositionally, with the bride and groom placed dead center, and lots of distracting elements all around them (exacerbated by an f-stop of perhaps f/8 or f/11, which doesn't appreciably blur the background). But worse is the unflattering gleam on their faces, a greasy-looking sheen probably caused by the photographer's fill flash.

If you lean more towards wedding photojournalism, you'll find this book annoying. The author takes stab after stab at the photojournalistic style and concentrates on listing which images you can sell after the wedding.

I found the photography examples rather cheesy and old. The "Posing" chapter starts with a full page image of a bride and groom (almost smack in the middle of the photograph) and the groom's arms hanging down to his sides. I'm new to wedding photography, but even I know that's poor posing! It has some good points, but I wasn't too impressed.

If you're into Traditional style of photography, this is a very good book for you to read. The author breaks the wedding down to almost every kind of picture you should create and how to make it sell at the end. It will be useful to you.

So far, after having read 4 separate books on wedding photography this is my least favorite.

The author has done a wonderful job of presenting all the basics of good wedding photography in an easy to understand format. Great practical examples and by far the most complete text I have read. Most photography books seem to be a bit light on meaningful content and just give tips this is a start to finish course on shooting a wedding.

An effective style of instruction will be found in this book. In addition to the literature which I think is very clear, are many photographs and that illustrate the concepts being discussed.

Topics discussed in a chapter by chapter format include: posing, lighting (which I found most useful), equipment and others.

I was disappointed with this book. There were some good ideas such as formal posing, but otherwise, outdated. A better wedding photography book by far is "Digital Wedding Photography" by Glen Johnson.
