The Beautiful Wedding: Photography Techniques for Capturing Authentic Moments by Tracy Dorr

Acclaimed wedding photographer Tracy Dorr shows you how to capture the moments of genuine emotion and spontaneous interaction that make a wedding beautiful. Through careful observation of the events, relationships, and scenes, you’ll learn how to be in the right place at the right time. Or, if the right moment doesn’t present itself organically, how to set the stage for authentic interactions. You’ll learn to shoot fast and shoot smart in challenging lighting conditions and ever-changing scenes for beautiful images that go beyond the expected. Finally, Dorr shows you how to present these images in client-pleasing products—and to transition your wedding-shooting skills into other subject areas for better overall photography of all your clients.

This was a great guide to photographing a wedding in the photojournalistic style. She also stresses the importance of creating your own look within that style so your work is recognized as yours. It's broken down into easy to read sections with tons of photographs which I always like. There is also a little bonus at the end where she briefly discusses applying the same techniques to children's photography. Worth the read.

In "The Beautiful Wedding" Tracy Dorr does a fantastic job advising wedding photographers on the various aspects of photographing a wedding. I found the sections on cultivating the clients' trust and capturing emotion to be particularly helpful and informative. These are two aspects of wedding photography that are essential, yet sometimes tricky to accomplish. And based on the elegant and natural-looking photos throughout her book, it seems that Dorr is quite an accomplished and skilled wedding photographer.
