It really feels as though the author is on the side of the reader, divulging personal anecdotes and giving recommendations from her own experiences, while at the same time providing clear and detailed definitions, technical explanations and background information. It is all in there, from how to shoot a wedding in the rain, to choosing methods of archiving your projects.
I like the layout of the book. It is broken up into clever sections of: The proposal, The Wedding, The Honeymoon and The Marriage. Each packed with how-to information specific to wedding videography as well as general information on how to run a successful business through its various phases. If you are like me, who read it start to finish, the pages just kept flipping. However, finding specific subject matter is also easy, with a thorough table of contents and index.
The tips and notes sections are great. Many of them are fantastic, even if you are not a wedding photographer. They are just great life advise. The author really does an excellent job of addressing both novices and established professionals. Because the work is so comprehensive, there is something for everyone.
My one complaint about the writing of this book was the frequency of the phrase, "That being said..." I found myself reading a paragraph only to wait for the hitch, which consisently would come shortly thereafter. However, I suppose such is life these days, full of angles from which to view it. That being said, I congratulate the author on completing this magnificently thorough and heartfelt piece of work.
If your approach is more the "guerrilla style" and ad-hoc approach, then there is still much to learn in this book. Having worked in IT worldwide at a high level, I know, planning and execution deliver superior products in the end, no matter how much raw talent is involved.
I highly recommend this book to anyone starting in the videography world who is planning on producing a chargeable service as a result, or if your looking to deliver a product in the end that is of a higher standard than those around you.
This book is very easy to read, clear and well written. For a how-to book, it's stellar.
It is convenient I think that I am using adobe premiere as an editing program which she refers to often, but the information is general enough that it probably shouldn't make much of a difference if you are using something else like final cut pro.
I highly recommend this book to anyone whom loves taking video's
