So you want to know how do you start wedding photography right? I’ll be honest and straight-up with you, there is no easy answer. If you have any kind of art degree or training from the college of your choice then you have an advantage over those who don’t. For example, if you studied art and design, you will be able to speak to the person behind the camera and know exactly what they want. Not only that, but you will be able to visualize the end result in your head before you get into the studio.
Most of the time when people go into wedding photography they jump in blind. They don’t really know how to approach a client and really make them feel comfortable. You’re going to want to approach your client as if you’re talking to a friend. You should also have a very open mind about taking pictures. If you start pre-wedding photography with an open mind, you’ll more than likely take better photographs in the long run.
So if you’re asking, how do you start taking great photos, I’d recommend you get the help of a professional photographer. Trust me, you’ll never regain the confidence and professionalism that you would’ve felt if you went it alone. There’s a reason why 95% of all photographers have formal training. It’s because they love photography and want to share it with others.
