    Fabulous insight into the business

    This is one of the finest books I have found on understanding the wedding photography business. Kenny is very humble in his approach to building a successful brand that is based around a passion for great pictures and a true heart to serve others on their most cherished day. Though technical knowledge is valuable, being successful in photography, specifically wedding photography, is more about making a personal connection with the client and conducting yourself with integrity. Kenny's example is one to follow and my professional career as a photographer will benefit from his insight and wisdom for years to come. Well done, my friend!

    Good book

    Helps you get a great idea of how to be prepared and what to expect. Worthwhile purchase for someone getting started. Probably not too valuable for the experienced wedding photographer.
