A Real Wedding, Live and Uncensored with Cliff Mautner
Get the inside scoop on what it takes to photograph a real wedding with Cliff Mautner! Cliff has shot over 900 weddings, and he knows that each one takes on a life of its own. In this first part of a two-part class Cliff takes you right into the unscripted action as he goes to work photographing a real wedding from the moment he arrives at the venue through shooting family portraits just prior to the ceremony. You'll learn about all the gear Cliff takes to a wedding and why it earns a place in his bag, you'll see how Cliff interacts with the bride and groom as he builds a rapport that helps to put the client at ease and keeps the focus on their big day, and you'll gain the benefit of Cliff's insights into how he approaches a wedding shoot, what his priorities are, and how he prepares for all the unpredictability that a wedding presents.

In the second part of A Real Wedding, Live and Uncensored, Cliff continues the experience of putting you right by his side as he works to photograph a wedding as it happens. The class begins as the ceremony is about to start and continues to the dancing at the reception. All the way through Cliff brings you into the situation by thinking out loud as he calls on his experience to overcome challenges, adjust settings, change lenses, and adhere to the number one rule: Get the shot!
