Written for both professionals and amateurs looking for creative ways to set their work apart from others, this book explains how to create a list of special people and shots the bride and groom want, shoot dramatic and flattering images of the bride in the studio, and pose and shoot photos of the couple at the altar.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books are remarkably similar in content and approach. The authors are experienced and successful wedding photographers; Ferro has shot over 10,000 weddings, and Cantrell complements her work at weddings by publishing in leading popular magazines. Both books cover all the essentials of planning and undertaking a wedding shoot. The Art of Wedding Photography is logically organized into a traditional format, with chapters treating every part of the wedding: before the ceremony, the ceremony itself, formals, and the reception. The concluding chapters discuss the wedding album and various aspects of marketing one's services. The photographs that illustrate the book are strikingly original. In Wedding Photography, Ferro covers the various parts of the wedding but also discusses a number of specific techniques for making wedding photographs. Many tips are obvious--the magic of make-up and the appeal of soft focus, for example. However, the book includes many other nuggets of sound advice, such as hand posing and using the veil as a prop. The book is generously illustrated with excellent color photographs, including both traditional wedding poses and creative techniques. Both books will be helpful to professionals and to amateurs who are looking to break into this lucrative area of commercial photography. Recommended for subject collections in academic libraries and popular photography and career collections in public libraries.--Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll.
