The Ultimate Wedding Photography Guide

Weddings are no joke. They require a serious amount of passion, patience, stamina and, most importantly, know-how. You can’t just jump into wedding photography blindly, and even if you’ve been in the game for years, there’s always something new you can learn.

For many, wedding photography is the bread and butter of their business, so knowing how to book a wedding, shoot a wedding, and post-process a wedding is a must. You can learn from doing, yes, but you can also learn from others who’ve been there and done ALL that.

We are so pumped about this new Wedding Posing Guide we put together with acclaimed photographer Beth of ENV Photography.

This comprehensive guide covers everything you need to know. You'll get a rundown on camera gear and equipment, working with the bride and groom before/during and after the wedding, post-processing, and, of course, lots of posing techniques.

    Are these posing cards printable?

    Yes. We include digital files in both high and low resolution - high res for printing and low res for mobile devices. These will print these off as a 4x6. Many of our clients will print these off, punch a hole in them, put a ring on them and put them in their camera bag. Makes a great way to get out of a bind if you're having a brain freeze during a session. Need help loading your posing cards to your iPhone/iPad/iPod? Click here for a tutorial.

    Can I print this guide?

    Yes, you most certainly can! If you'd prefer to read your guide in print instead of digitally, feel free to print this guide for your own personal use.

    I keep getting errors when I try downloading the guides. How can I fix this?

    No problem. Try copying/pasting the link into a new tab. If that doesn't work, try using a different internet browser. (I.E. if you're using Internet Explorer try switching to Safari or Google Chrome to download the links)
