New York City-based wedding photographer Ryan Brenizer starts this very informative tutorial with a piece of information familiar to any photographer—most of your time working on a job will be spent in front of a computer. Therefore, it is crucial to develop a system to streamline your workflow while guaranteeing the safety of your images. Using Carbon Copy Cloner to back up images, Brenizer then edits with Photo Mechanic and begins to process images in Lightroom, where he provides detailed and nuanced explanations of the tools available to quickly and effectively get the most from your large group of photos. He then moves to Photoshop for specific detailed fixes that would take longer in Lightroom. Tips regarding the light qualities of specific cameras, measuring white balance on black items, batch processing, and “editing in” go a long way to speed your process and improve your images and overall presentation.

Ryan Brenizer offers five deceptively simple ideas to improve your lighting when shooting weddings and, with one glance at his dramatic and subtle lighting effects, it becomes clear that these ideas, when executed properly, will create gorgeous images. Brenizer likes to travel light and his tips often involve using speedlights, whether on camera or off. Creating effective backlight is a specialty of his and “playing billiards with light” refers to the way he bounces light from walls and ceilings for flattering illumination. He also discusses the benefits of continuous light—from any source—and the way you can make (or break) a photo by positioning a light close to your subject.

With a very personable demeanor and his beautiful photographs as a calling card, Ira Lippke introduces us to the important aspects of shooting a destination wedding. Noting the importance of developing a trusting relationship with the couple, he speaks about the “immersive nature” and intimacy of travelling with the wedding party and how that provides the opportunity for amazing photos. He also provides several very practical tips and notes on his gear choices, but also makes it clear that while quality lenses and sensors are important, a good photo must happen first in the mind of the photographer.

Professional glamour and wedding photographer Robert Harrington discusses some of the ways you can bring an element of glamour to your wedding and model photography. He suggests having your clients clip photos from their favorite magazines, study them, practice posing—it is always best to plan ahead. When the wedding day arrives, engage your subjects. Make them feel comfortable and unstressed. Consider all the angles, read the face and body language. If your subject has a less than ideal body, know how to pose them, sweep the leg back, use the light to its best advantage. Capture the dress, the emotions conveyed in facial expressions, and by all means, when you’re photographing the bride, try not to clip the highlights—expose for the dress. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com.
