Fine Art Wedding Photography: How to Capture Images with Style for the Modern Bride

First off I'll just say that Jose Villa is one of my 4 favorite wedding photographers so my review of this book maybe a little biased.  It was incredibly inspiring, and motivating.  Jose Villa shoots all film, mostly medium format on a Contax 645.  His color is so soft, with nice pastels that work so perfectly for weddings.  He is incredibly detail oriented and makes it a point to make sure that his images are very cohesive, and flow perfectly.  I am constantly trying to learn and employ new ideas and methods to my photography.  I think it's important to always keep learning new techniques and to never get to comfortable in how you do things because that breeds complacency and in an artistic based business thats no good.  

 

I highly recommend this book to any people photographer, not just wedding because the ideas are such that they could be transferred to many other areas.  Here is a link to the Amazon page, and to Mr. Villa's website.
