    This is a unique book. It is the first wedding photography book

    This is a unique book. It is the first wedding photography book I have read to show a single wedding from start to finish including the engagement session and a day after session.  He includes the times the photos were done at so you can see just what he is able to accomplish in the set amount of time.  He tells you what's going on in his head as he visualizes how he will use the images for the engagement storybook layout and for the wedding album. He makes sure to have plenty of options for his layouts. The best part is he actual shows you the layouts he created. Chapter 3 is the layout for the engagement storybook and at the end of the book he includes the layout for the couples wedding album. It really is a start to finish book.

    I was a recently lucky enough to get my hands on the brand new book:  One Wedding - How to Photograph from Start to Finish by Brett Florens.  When the book came in the mail from Amherst Media, I couldn't wait to crack the binding!  The cover showed exactly what I was hoping to see from Brett's wedding work. A large wedding party grouped beautifully.  Brett opens his book with "The Journey".  He briefly explains his process and outlines the book before jumping right into Engagements.
    In the engagement section of this book, Brett explains his careful research for the clients and goes on to explain that meeting with them before your engagement session is essential to gaining client trust and in making them more comfortable. He outlines his entire shoot with gorgeous photographs illustrating where his inspiration came from to his finished product.  Brett even goes as far as giving his reasons for his album layout design with illustrated examples.
    From engagements we go hour by hour into a couples wedding day.  Brett takes us on a journey into his thought processes, planning, and execution.  He shares his camera setting information, his reasons for positioning poses, and teaches how to bring fashion photography lighting and posing into our own weddings.
    When the wedding day is over, Brett takes us with him to shoot a post session!  We see learn the importance of such a session for the couple and we step by step instruction in planning and adding these to the couples album with a flow that continued from the wedding day.
    Brett closes the book by showing us his spreads for the wedding album.  He is thorough in his how's and why's and teaches us the most dynamic way to display the clients images.  He explains the differences in a parent book from a client book.  He even goes as far as making each bridal party member their own mini books customized with their own view of the wedding.Brett Florens is a master at his craft and I enjoyed this book immensely.  It is a terrific companion to his recent CreativeLive class.  I especially love his unique posing techniques.  Large groups have always been a trouble area for me, but Brett's techniques were so interesting that I have a renewed excitement for family formals at my next wedding!  If you are looking for an interesting and new way to view wedding photography, I highly recommend this read!
