Jacqueline Tobin, longtime editor and writer at Photo District News, has published her first book, Wedding Photography UNVEILED: Inspiration and Insight from from 20 Top Photographers published by Amphoto Books and available at Amazon.
Wedding Photography UNVEILED, with cover photographs by Jose Villa, highlights twenty contemporary wedding photographers whose work is considered among some of the best in the nation. It offers aspiring wedding photographers practical tips, business practices and inspiration from established “fashion-forward” wedding photographers. Tobin’s book is a joyous celebration of the emergent art of wedding day reportage.
Tobin, who has been in the photo industry for over twenty years, sees wedding photography, once considered a “thankless profession”, evolving into its own lush storytelling genre.
“The most compelling images, I’ve discovered, are these “new-school” images that focus on emotion-filled, spontaneous moments during the course of the day, woven together to highlight a couple’s personality and connection, ” she writes.
I am deeply grateful to be among the nation’s wedding photographers selected for Wedding Photography UNVEILED including:
