This book comes from the heart
I want to create photos that are so beautiful you´ll cherish them always. I want to capture at least a few from each wedding that are so amazing I can´t wait to post them in my portfolio.
The ones you see in my portfolio are real weddings, of regular people, not models. But they were taken under ideal conditions. Unfortunately, not all weddings have ideal conditions.
I want to do my very best for you
That´s what I want to explain. I can´t make photos that look like the ones in my portfolio if the conditions are not ideal.... so please understand this; when you ask me to take a photo at 2pm in full sun, it´s not going to look as soft and dreamy as the one I took at 8pm that you saw in my portfolio.
Did you know that many common situations at weddings are VERY hard to photograph?
I´m not trying to discourage you, but some examples are: candlelight, large windows, dance floor strobes, ceremony arrangements, tall reception centerpieces... Even a bright sunny day can cause problems for a photographer if your ceremony is facing the sun.
Let me help you plan your wedding right
I´ve encountered every situation and can suggest ways to make your wedding easy to photograph and work around difficult situations.
I know very few people will ¨see¨ things the way a photographer would, so that´s why I´ve written a simple guide book for couples planning their weddings. It will cover all aspects of your day with simple ¨dos and don´ts´ to help you create the ideal conditions for me (or any photographer) to shoot under. This ensures that your photos will have the very best chance of turning out absolutley stunning!
You´ll get amazing photos as a result

Planning a wedding is a lot of work. Let me help you make it easier.
How is this different from all the other wedding planning books?
It's written by a photographer, not a wedding planner. (The difference is that photographers see things in terms of how they will look in photos, while nearly everyone else considers only how things look in real life. Sometimes what looks good in real life doesn't look good AT ALL in photos.)
It's main focus is on setting everything up around creating beautiful photo opportunites
It´s way simpler than traditional wedding planning books, and its primary focus is on getting great photos.
Most pages are filled with picture examples so it's QUICK and EASY to plan your wedding this way, rather than agonizing over every little detail.
It contains examples from 60+ real-life weddings to help you avoid common mistakes people make that ruin wedding photos
Also includes a section called "How to Hire a Qualified Photographer." with Seven Questions Every Bride Should Ask, and What to Look For in a Professional Portfolio.
Many expensive photographers say "You Get What You Pay For" in order to justify their high prices. While this is sometimes the case, it isn't always. You'll learn how to differentiate between someone who is offering a better service and someone who is just charging too much. This section alone is priceless and could save you from a major photo disaster.
