In Wedding Storyteller, Volume 1: Elevating the Approach to Photographing Wedding Stories from Rocky Nook, photographer and educator Roberto Valenzuela delivers what so many of his followers have been asking for: a book specifically dedicated to helping photographers improve their wedding photography. A wedding photographer himself, Roberto built his business from the ground up by delivering high-quality imagery that tells the compelling and beautiful story of his clients' most important day.

In Wedding Storyteller you will not be given a collection of looks which neither inspire or teach you anything. Nor will you find a predictable and banal wedding shot list. Instead, this first volume of the three-part Wedding Storyteller series goes beyond the superficial and delves deeply into the truly important topics, themes, and subject matter you need to know in order to noticeably elevate your wedding photography.

Foundation Components: Location Techniques

Learn how to conquer the locations you encounter as a wedding photographer. Roberto teaches you how to work with light, context, clutter, walls, depth, and other compositional elements such as frames and reflections.

Foundation Components: People Techniques

Weddings are often high-energy, high-stress environments; your attitude and behavior have an enormous impact on your ability to succeed as a photographer. Roberto discusses the crucial people skills you need to know and teaches his unique approach to situational and group posing.

Storyteller Approach Components

Roberto discusses the five approaches he uses to build a wedding story for his clients. These five approaches are: photojournalism, interactive photojournalism, stylized aware posing, stylized unaware posing, and story development.

Expert Components

The concluding section builds and expands upon everything covered in the previous components. Roberto addresses topics such as emotionally valuable people, lens choices, helper light, posing patterns and when to break them, capturing peak action, achieving a unique perspective, and creating multi-layered stories within a single photograph.
