Starting a Wedding Photography Business

The second most-asked question I receive from photographers is, "How did you start your journey as a wedding photographer?" I photographed three weddings in October of 2006, then shot 38 weddings in 2007...all without formal training or money. When I began, I dared myself to dream and fail. My husband, JD, and I planned that I'd give this whole photography thing a try for one year, and if it didn't work, I'd go back and reclaim my scholarship to law school.



When the Groom Says No...

Wedding photography can be extremely intense and stressful for any photographer. It requires the ability to adapt to situations immediately and to be creative, and sometimes it means working with tough personalities. But what happens when everything suddenly comes to a screeching halt at a wedding?



Who Says Photography is a Piece of Cake?

Photography is tough work! With the advent of DSLRs and studio software, it’s easier than ever for a novice to take quality pictures without any formal training. People without the requisite creativity, training, and business acumen are calling themselves professional photographers. We asked some famous photographers what advice they would give these people, and what the most trying aspect of the photography business is for them.
