    You can try this book:

    step-by-step/006/digital wedding photography
    by Paul F. Gero

    Its part of a series of books about digital photography for various purposes. Don't ask me why the title's wierd... thats what they call it.

    Available at the libraries.

    There are many books regarding wedding photography, you may find almost all of them in our national library.


    I read most of them, but none of them teach you how to shoot a Chinese customary wedding..

    That's a good one.


    Tell me have you ever buy a local book? any books, not magazine.
    Even if there is a local wedding photography book, who will buy it?

    If someone do a local customary (chinese traditional, western, christian, Indian, Malay, Nyonya etc) wedding book with good photo shots, I think some may be interested . At least the bride or groom do?

    To publish a book you need to produce minimum of 500 copies, even you can sell all 500 copies, you have to sell at lest 200% more expensive than the other similar type of book to brake even.


    What kind of books are you talking now? A “how to” wedding photography or documentary of local customary wedding?

    No need for so much trouble. Just read those books for ideas... a wedding is still a wedding regardless of where its held.

    Attend a few local ones to get a rough idea of whats going on. No two weddings are the same so no need to memorise. Take a look at other people's portfolio and get an idea of what others take, the trend etc.

    Basically they're two main styles, photojournalistic and the more traditional posed portraits. Adapt, learn and practice.

    I disagreed with this,
    #1, if a photographers shot a few hundred weddings, he/she will know that 80% of them are almost the same.
    #2, if a photographer don't memorise some of the custom, rituals, taboos, one day he/she will get into troubles.
