For most couples, finding the right photographer is a LARGE part of the wedding planning process. You know that aside from the rings, the pictures are all you’ll have left after the wedding is over. As you join together to become a new family, these images become the first official record of your family history and often one of the most cherished family heirlooms. The skill, and style and experience level of the photographer you choose will determine how those memories are captured. And the scary part – for both the couple and the photographer – is that there are no second chances. Your wedding photographer has one chance to get it right and make it look beautiful.
This book is designed as a quick read that you should be able to complete from cover to cover in a couple hours. But don’t let the size fool you. This little book is truly packed with information collected through 15 years of my personal experience shooting hundreds of weddings around the US and 59 (so far) in countries outside the US in places like... Jamaica, Mexico, The Bahamas, Aruba, Hawaii, Barbados, Tortola, St. John, St. Thomas, St. Lucia, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Italy, Fiji, Tahiti, Mauritius and Hong Kong.
This condensed version of all that experience will help you run your wedding (at least the photography part of it) as if you’ve done this hundreds of times.
This is the "inside scoop" on choosing, and working with a photographer. You’ll learn how to shop, what to look for, how much you should expect to pay, and how to arrange different aspects of your wedding so that you can do your part to get the absolute best images from your photographer. By the time you’re finished with this book, you’ll know what a realistic price is whether you’re shopping for a wedding in the US, or for a destination wedding in foreign lands. You'll learn what to look for when you're viewing an online portfolio, and what questions to ask when you interview the photographer in person. You’ll also learn about the many pitfalls like what to watch out for when you find a “cheap” hotel wedding package that seems a little too good to be true.
This real life experience, shared by someone who’s been there hundreds of times, is something every new bride and groom desperately need. And while the information herein is geared towards choosing a photographer, you’ll also find tons of information on things like scheduling the wedding to get the best photos, choosing a location, setting up the lights at the reception, arranging the ceremony, and hiring a videographer, all of which will be helpful in planning your wedding.
