I was surprised to see a video about wedding photography going viral today, but when I watched it I immediately realized why. It is a very touching look at the art of wedding photography and what it means to a photographer who has dedicated his life to it. I was very moved and inspired by it:
It was created by SHEP FILMS (commenters were theorizing that it was filmed primarily with the Canon 5d Mark II DSLR but I couldn’t find a straight answer on it) and it is about Kirk Mastin, a professional wedding photographer based in Seattle.
Kirk says “No two weddings I’ve shot have been the same and I am amazed at how the chemistry of the couple, the location, and even the weather can make for unexpected and stunning photos. It’s what makes my job so much fun.”
Getting Started in Wedding Photography
Digital Wedding Secrets by Nick Smith is a very popular and comprehensive instructional eBook package for aspiring wedding photographers and has guidance on virtually everything needed to start a professional wedding photography business. With 189 pages of information and many other materials such as shot lists and sample contract templates, there is immense value here for any level of photographer interested in wedding photography.
A word of guidance…Their website is a little obnoxious to navigate – you’ll see what I mean. But I have found them to have the best wedding photography training package. Their free eBook that comes with the newsletter is a little helpful, but the primary ebook package and all it’s extras are a lot more useful and actionable.
The Digital Wedding Secrets package is currently available at half price here: Digital Wedding Secrets eBook
