Outside of this blog, I have many little projects, passions, and a day job. One of these projects is my wedding photography business. Since high school, I have been shooting weddings on the side. Starting with a quaint backyard wedding to quickly evolve into shooting weddings of all sizes. To this day, I only acquire business through referrals; I don't advertise or go to wedding conventions. This allows me to have a relaxed and creative approach to wedding photography.
Interested in seeing my work or booking me as a photographer? Lucky for you, I just overhauled my website! Half a year ago I realized that "eddy" fits inside "wedding," so naturally "The Weddyng" was born.
If you know me at all, you know that puns are my way of life. Terrible, terrible puns. But hey, they get a laugh. Usually it's the "Oh my god, Eddy..." laugh, but I'll take it.
Today's post is going to be short and sweet. I spent my yesterday evening working on the new wedding photography website for some potential new business so I didn't have the time to write out a novel for you guys. In the future, I might write a full post about how to start a wedding photography business. It's quite easy really:
Start a Wedding Photography Business Today
- Buy a nice full-frame camera like the Canon 6D.
- Post to Facebook: "Need a beginner wedding photographer for $250?"
- Shoot that wedding like your life depended on it.
- Create a photography website using Squarespace ($8/mo).
- Price yourself out at around $500 on your site, then increase it $100 each wedding.
- Keep shooting whenever you can and learn the ins and outs of the camera.
That's it! Simple.
Now go tell all your fiancé'd friends about me!
