Creating a truly unique "storybook" wedding album involves combining black and white wedding candids with more traditional formal color photographs--as well as mementos and bits of text, poetry, and readings from the wedding. This book describes techniques to capture special moments at a wedding--intimate interactions, hugs, playfulness, and even tears. It also explains how to be unobtrusive by shooting with natural light and occasional flash. Instructions on how to market this unique style of wedding photography and portions of sample albums to use as models are included.
