Item description for Wedding Photography: A Professional Guide by Morag MacDonald...
Now that the cost of the average wedding runs well into five figures, the job of capturing a complete record of this special day has become especially critical. Those who undertake it, even if they are not professional photographers, will want to be certain that they are fully equipped to deliver a finished album of the highest standards. To ensure the finest results, one need look no further than this superb practical manual, which is replete with examples of the very best work from around the world. Aimed at amateur and semi-professional photographers, the book begins with a discussion of available equipment; it then takes the reader through every phase of a wedding shoot---preparations and planning, locations and poses, the execution of the shoot, printing and work in the digital darkroom, designing an album---and concluding with a chapter on the business-end of wedding photography.

A great primer for the new wedding photographer Nov 10, 2007
Just got this book yesterday to help me with a couple of weddings I have coming up.
I have read it already (it is a quick read) but will be going back through now and taking notes while I go through it again.
I like the way the author writes, he presents the entire book to you in easy-to-digest sections that map directly to what wedding clients or planners are expecting from you.
The first section deals with equipment and preparation. There is a great example of a checklist to use for the wedding day 'did I get all the shots' list and a list of the lenses and other equipment that Morag carries with him.
Next, he talks about a pre-wedding interview to get to know your clients and a pre-wedding shoot, and then about knowing the area you are going to shoot... and goes on from there to walk you through the entire wedding day, bringing up many great ideas for spicing up a shoot or getting the most out of difficult venues.
This book is packed full of good advice about shooting weddings and has many large, full color examples from Morag and other photographers.
If you need to get up to speed quickly on how to shoot a wedding this is your book.
