    Wedding Photog Must Have

    This is a great book that has many useful, high-quality images. I never really considered engagement photographs for my wife and I, and now I regret it! Dorr does a great job of taking the reader through the basics of photographing this subject, but also how to treat clients, and where you can grow your business. This is an enjoyable read, and a wise investment for wedding photographers.
