Wedding photography is a huge industry and can be a rewarding career path for enthusiastic and talented photographers. Think carefully about wedding photography and whether it is what you want to do with your career – you can get a lot out of it.
First, learn how to be an excellent and versatile photographer. Wedding photography is not just about capturing beautiful, arty pictures of the bride and groom. It is about setting the scene, photographing guests, making the venue look lovely in photos. If you don’t have solid all-around skills, you will feel out of your depth.
Once you feel more confident, try your hand at wedding photography. Start out by practising at friends’ weddings, or ask a professional wedding photographer if you can go along with them. Watch them in action and see what they do and capture some images yourself, if you are allowed. This is a good way to build up a portfolio for future as well.
