When I started photographing weddings over a decade ago I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I don’t mean I didn’t know how to take a good picture as much as I was just guessing as to how to run a wedding photography business. Many things I learned the hard way, and after talking to wedding photographers over that time, I realise that I was not alone in my cluelessness. So I’m here to give aspiring wedding photographers a ‘leg up’ about the stuff people might not have told you already. I’m not talking lighting and posing, although there is a little bit of that in there, this is mostly a conversation about the OTHER STUFF.

I answer your questions, even the ones you’re too scared to ask.

  • How do I get started?
  • What happens on a wedding day?
  • What can go wrong?
  • What do I do when the photo I’ve just taken looks terrible and I’m dying on the inside?
  • How do I market and price myself?
  • How do I keep my images safe?
  • How can I make every wedding unique and blow my clients away?
  • Is it possible that I’m a bit of a jerk and no one’s telling me?
  • Where do I stand?
  • Who is this ‘Uncle Bob’ everyone keeps telling me about?

Read this if you’re an aspiring wedding photographer and you’ll be a little more prepared. If you already photograph weddings, pull up a seat, you’ll feel right at home.
