Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of good information about shooting weddings. I have not concentrated much on shooting weddings in my career. I felt they were too much bother and made up reasons to reject the offers. I have personally shot (2). I thought they both turned out well. I had no complaints and made decent money. After reading this book the author pointed out I could have added a few more options that I previously had not thought of. I think I'll try a few more.
