Wedding photography is one of the biggest markets in professional photography, and one of the most challenging. Detailing every aspect of wedding photography, from the prewedding consultations to techniques for nonobtrusive coverage of the ceremony, this book serves as a guide through portraiture of the bride in the studio, the couple, the ceremony, the wedding party, and the newlyweds' families. Written for both professionals and amateurs looking for creative ways to set their work apart from others, this book explains how to create a list of special people and shots the bride and groom want, shoot dramatic and flattering images of the bride in the studio, and pose and shoot photos of the couple at the altar. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
