Starting a wedding photography business

I can tell you that starting a wedding photography business is a good idea. Why? Look, you will never lose clients in wedding photography since there are always couples who are getting married everyday! And to every couple who are planning to get married, they always include wedding photography in their list of things to avail.

Another good thing in wedding photography as a business is that the environment of the event that you are documenting is always positive. Who is not happy in the wedding feast? It might only be the ex of either of the two. Kidding aside, I mean, everyone is happy in the event. Families and friends are there with the couple to celebrate the wedding feast and you are there to preserve all those sweet moments by capturing them through your camera.

So now that you are happy to rock and roll, let's then learn some tips in starting a wedding photography business:

Starting a wedding photography business tip #1 - Start From People Around You

You'll surely start being small first before being big. It's then a good idea starting your wedding photography business from those people who are near you. Tell all your cousins, friends, and colleagues that you are offering a wedding photography service. In case some of them we'll be getting married, offer you service giving them a big discount. By starting with those people whom you know well, you'll not have a big problem also if ever you had some imperfections in your job. Well, you gave them a big discount anyway. You'll be learning a lot in this initial jobs as well before accepting bigger ones.

Starting a wedding photography business tip #2 - Find Regular Clients

No matter how good your services are if you just have few clients coming in, you'll just lose your business in the long run. It's then better to find ways to establish regular clients. You can do this by being tied up with other companies that are also catering products and services related to weddings. The best ones are the hotels in your place. Even having just one hotel tied up to you is already a good thing. In this way, any couple who will be having their ceremony and reception in that hotel is automatically availing of your photography service too. You have to show however that your works are really competitive so that they will love it. Chances are good hotels already had photographers tied up with them so it's good to start first with the new ones or those who are still relatively small businesses.

If all the hotels in your area had photographers tied up with them, don't lose hope. There are still many other companies that also offer services to weddings. Try going to companies doing wedding make ups, selling gowns, selling wedding rings, or even to chapels.

Starting a wedding photography business tip #3 - Love Weddings as an Event

I have some friends who are doing wedding photography but keep on hating things about love and relationships. They always think of such things as corny and just do this job for the sake of business. Well, if your heart is not in what you are doing then it will not really make you happy in your chosen field in photography. You better put your heart then in seeing couples and try to document things that they love to see.

Starting a wedding photography business might be quite hard when you are still beginning. But once you established yourself already, business will just roll in. Bear in mind also that wedding photography is a seasonal business. So in low peak times, find other photography related jobs that will sustain your business.
