Book: Digital Wedding Photography: Capturing Beautiful Memories

I have decided to give my House of Night Series a little break. I did finish Hunted and it was really good!
I decided this because I need to focus on my wedding book because I have a wedding shoot in October. I need to focus my attention a lot on this book so I can learn lots of new and fun things for the wedding, and if I'm reading my series that WILL NOT happen b/c I love those books and can't put them down. So this week at the store it was very hard for me to not buy the next book in line, but I did it!

A little about the wedding I will be doing....A friend of mine suggested to someone she knows for me to do photography at her daughters wedding. Of course I was very excited when she asked me to do this but I am also very nervous. This will be my first wedding and I hope I do a good job for her. The wedding is in October of this year and I will just being shooting for 2 hours for her. It's a very good start for me to get into shooting wedding photography and I'm sure I will have such a good time. I'm really looking forward to it but again also very nervous.
When I was asked to do this wedding I started searching for a good wedding book to read and get ideas on what to do for wedding photography. The book I finally decided on got really good reviews so I'm looking forwarding to reading it!
