Wedding Photography is challenging
The world of wedding photography is an exciting and challenging place to be. If you are an aspiring professional photographer or simply an amateur that wants to learn more about wedding photography, you will find that the business can be easy to enter into in the way. After you have built some portfolio by either working with an established photographer like myself or shooting free for your friends or family, there is no shortage of eager clients who are more than willing to try you. It may take several years to work your way into the higher price bracket, but when you do, you may find clients willing to pay to reserve your services regardless.
The job definitely has its challenges. You have to learn to control your equipment in any sort of lighting conditions imaginable, with lots of hectic activity going on around you, and with lots of people watching and waiting on you and you will end up spending much more time running the business than what you spend shooting photos.
The rewards for your labor, aside from making a comfortable living, are that you get to perform a service that is extremely important to your clients. Many of them will tell you that your photos are one of the most important things happening on the wedding day, second only to the act of getting married. They want very badly to remember this day for the rest of their lives, and they trust you to create the images that will keep the memories alive.
