“A really excellent book about shooting weddings, that actually provides the beginner with some really practical and useful advice. Rosie has a real knack of breaking down and explaining the different elements of photographing a wedding in an easy to follow manner. I especially liked Rosie’s advice on shooting wedding portraits. I would definitely recommend this book to those thinking of shooting their first wedding.”
Matt Foden, Foden Photography
“I wish this book had been available when I first started photographing weddings! No nonsense guide to ensuring you capture all the key moments and people on the day. Highly recommended read for those starting out in the wedding industry or for those returning after an absence.”
Caroline Smyth, Caroline Smyth Photography
“I thought this was a thoughtfully written and incredibly comprehensive how-to book. It felt like I was talking to a friend – Rosie was friendly, encouraging and confident. I’m not a wedding photographer (I shoot newborns and maternity), and the idea of shooting a wedding gives me the heebie jeebies! But I can definitely see that having read this book, I would feel armed to tackle a wedding.”
