    I've photographed over 500 weddings and the one thing I've learned, is that the less clutter I have in my head and the less I have to worry about, the more creative I can be.  I'll go over my simple strategies for easy lighting, posing and shooting for the album, resulting in larger sales.  Learn how I double my averages with easy selling methods for Bridal and Engagement shoots.
