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.



Jasmine Star: Timing Is Everything

I shot my first wedding in October 2006. Back then, I simply hoped for the best. Hoped the wedding wasn't delayed, hoped the family members remained nearby for formal pictures and hoped I received a timeline for the day in advance. I'll never forget the terror of standing outside—in a garden—after my first wedding on a pitch-black night for the family formal pictures.
