Book Review: Wedding Photography – A Guide To Posing - WeddingWise Articles
I love this book because it’s equally valuable to wedding photographers as well as brides and grooms. It’s the little pocket bible of wedding photography full of practical tips and inspiring photos that anyone can read to drastically improve their wedding photos, whether thay are behind the camera or in front of it.

Introduction

The back cover because it does an excellent job of explaining who the book is for and what it’s all about: Photographers: This book is inexpensive and affordable for all. We would love every photographer (and bride) to own a copy, as we believe a wedding deserves the best images possible. Only by constant learning can we continually improve. Think of all the new shots you will learn and how pleased your couples will be. This pocket-size book is very affordable and will fit in a camera bag. Invest in your future today by buying this book. Brides: Transform your wedding photos by understanding your photographer’s aims, so you can work together to…

Congrats Chris, our massage and magazine winner!

Benek Lisefski • July 26, 2010
Our most recent contest has come to an end we were left with the task of reading all the amazing reviews submitted over the last month and choosing a winner. It wasn’t easy. There were so many good ones and we had a hard time getting it down to even 5 or 10 to choose from. We’ve chosen Chris’s review of Windy Ridge as the winner! We liked how thoughtful it was and how it highlighted a less popular venue that many people may not know about. Congratulations Chris, we’ve contacted you to send out your prize package. You’ll be receiving a gift voucher for a 30 minute massage from Samsara Medispa as well as a copy of the brand new FQ Occasions magazine. Thank you to everyone who participated and submitted reviews of the wedding vendors you used. Your reviews are invaluable to other brides and grooms, helping them make smarter and easier wedding choices. We’re proud to say we now have well over 300 reviews and constantly growing, and we owe it all of you for making that…

WeddingWise VIP Club - the best of the best

Benek Lisefski • July 08, 2010
Brides and Grooms, we know you want to make smart and confident decisions about who you trust to make your wedding day go off without a hitch. Our user review system lets you read opinions from other brides and grooms so you know who to contact and who to avoid, but we’ve decided to take that a step further. We’re happy to announce our new WeddingWise VIP Club! Wedding vendors marked with a VIP tag are the cream of the crop. They’ve been most often voted as excellent by savvy brides and grooms. It takes at least 10 reviews and an average overall rating of 4.5 or higher to earn VIP status, so you can be confident that these vendors are great at what they do and have many satisfied customers to back that up. Let’s all give a big congrats to Kumeu Valley Estate and Julie Lassen Marriage Celebrant for being our first VIPs. At the time of writing they have 17 and 10 glowing reviews respectively. Other vendors take note - this is how you do it!

How do become a VIP?

In addition to a free 30 minute therapeutic massage courtesy of our friends at Samsara Medispa we’re also giving away a complementary copy of the brand new FQ Occasions magazine!
