    Since my fiancée and I can't afford a photographer and are relying on a few family members who are fond of their cameras (though they mostly take the "look at the scenery!" vacation shots) to document our wedding… This book would be an amazing addition to our planning! And a huge weight off my shoulders where worry is concerned!

    The picture book sounds awesome! I have been testing make-up, smile variations, and photo angles almost everyday because I am worried about exactly that!

  • I'm so self conscious about my French nose that I'd LOVE to have that book. I need to learn how to position myself properly for the camera! I have to admit that I feel pretty unattractive when I see myself in profile.
