One Wedding: How to Photograph a Wedding from Start to Finish [NOOK Book]

Overview

Overview

Every wedding is a journey; it starts off slowly many months before the “big day” and starts to accelerate as the auspicious occasion draws closer, with frenetic activity, unforeseen problems, and heightened emotions causing bumps and swerves along the road. When the day dawns, the hill to climb in the hours ahead can seem arduous, or for the über-prepared and relaxed, it could simply be plain sailing. And once the formalities are over and the party gets started, it’s usually a speedy downhill ride from there! Photographers tasked with the job of recording the events of the day need to make this journey as pleasant as possible for the clients. Of course, this is no small task. In this book, Brett Florens takes readers step by step through one entire wedding, offering tips to smooth the rocky road for their clients. He provides a play-by-play look at all of the photographic tasks of the day, from the pre-shoot production procedures (engaging with the client about the look and feel of the shoot, developing a mood board [a collection of images, colors, etc. that will inspire the images]), to the engagement shoot, through to the post-wedding shoot and the compilation of the wedding album. He explains, in simple language, how he executed each aspect of the shoot and created the storytelling wedding album. He also discusses his equipment selection and the reasons why he opts to use the tools he selects. Because marketing is essential when trying to attract a specific client, he outlines surefire techniques for identifying, attracting, and securing your target market, allowing you carte blanche to create images and storybooks that reflect your vision and unique interpretation of the event.

    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!
