"Rookie wedding photographer here. Just shot my first wedding in April. After finishing your course, let me say this: You really gave my head-nodding reflex a workout. There were a lot of issues raised that I stumbled across on my own, and it was nice to see confirmation that I was indeed on the right track.
Where did you really help me with this course? Easy. You covered - in depth - the demeanor that a photographer should have on wedding day, how to communicate before, during, and after the ceremony, and what the post-processing workflow should look like.
BTW, I also like the planning forms. I used your "Business of Photography" client agreement with my wedding clients, and let me tell you, they were impressed. I'm looking forward to impressing more people. Thank you for this course!" - Martha, Tucson Arizona.
"This course was just what I needed. I am shooting a wedding in September and I was so nervous about messing up the ceremony! Matt’s course showed me all the shots I need to get, where I need to be at each point in the ceremony and what lenses will work best for each part of the day. Highly recommended" - Carmen
"Having watched Matt's Wedding Photography 101, I actually feel that I can competently serve a bride on her most important day! Until now, I really wanted nothing to do with such an important one-time event! The 100+ "must-have" shot list is great, as are the other planning resources; and actually seeing him shoot a wedding, real-time, and then re-shoot it while adding remarks to the camera, was a really useful way of offering this information. Plus, I feel that I can apply the approach and techniques to any event I may shoot in the future. Breathe easy!" - Eric
"I am so happy to have purchased the wedding 101 series. I found it very informative and easy to follow and a great way to get some valuable insight if you are planning to get into wedding or event photography in the future, definitely worth the price, I would highly recommend the series, thanks to Matt, another fantastic series." - Laith
