Wedding Photography in 60 Seconds
Wedding photography is a challenging, but highly rewarding, type of work. Photographing weddings is a big commitment and takes a lot of preparation.
Invest in your clients: make them feel valued and get to know your couple. Prepare by pre-visiting venues, working out timings and making a list of essential shots of the day.
How to Become a Wedding Photographer
Before you photograph any wedding, make sure you're prepared with the proper insurance, contracts, and licensing. Keep websites and social media up to date with your latest work.
Build your portfolio with photo shoots and wedding fests, or gain more confidence by becoming a second shooter. Grab the essentials for your photography kit, like fast prime lenses and flash and speed lights.
Invest in the relationship with your clients and pre-visit venues before the big day. During the wedding, take as many detail shots as possible, and under any circumstance, stay calm.
