Feedback from real people who got to read Shoot-It-Yourself Wedding Video Guide:

“As someone who works in the video production industry, I found that it was really helpful in figuring out how to move to shooting weddings. I would highly recommend it!” – Jamie Butler, Global Television.

“Honestly, I think that the book is great!  I’ve been looking for information all over the internet about the process of shooting a wedding, and this was definitely the most clear cut guide that I found.  The thing I liked best about it was that it’s easy for me to understand.  I’m not extremely technical, so this was great!  Most information I find deals with the technical side, but this was the first time I found a real guide…how to shoot a wedding…what to do…what to shoot…when/where/how to do it.  It was great!” – Mary Howald.

“The suggested shoot pieces were very helpful. Overall it was very helpful.” – Karen Irvine.
