Get your gear together and get everything set up right
You need to start off with all of the right kind of gear if you are ever going to have any kind of hopes of launching your wedding photography career professionally. You need to basically start off with two main cameras which you are to use interchangeably. Ideally, they should have two different kinds of lenses mounted so you can seamlessly switch in between cameras if you are looking for a different perspective. The third camera will save you for when something happens to the first two. Someone who is smart with wedding photography should always make sure that there will be something to cover the liabilities by all means.
Arm yourself with the most fundamental of lenses
You basically need to start off with two. There are two options for you to go with here. In theory, you need a telephoto lens and a wide angle lens. However, if you are seriously just starting out and you do not necessarily have the finances to splurge in two of these expensive lenses, then you can temporarily go with a medium zoom lens that will let you do a little bit of what the telephoto lens and wide angle lens are able to do. The telephoto lens lets you zoom in and take close ups without being in the way and without being obtrusive in any way whatsoever because he can take it from a pretty safe distance. A wide angle lens lets you take group photos with a lot of people in it without having to worry if they will all fit in your view angle.
Learn how to network properly
Tap into the social circle of wedding professionals you are able to work on wedding events that you have mutually covered. Networking is one of the most important ways of drumming up some business in the world of wedding photography. Make it a constant practice to introduce yourself and your business to people and in giving them firm handshakes. It also helps if you produce great looking business cards that you can give out to wedding planners, caterers, and florists during the wedding effects that you are covering.
Work on your blog and portfolio
Make sure that they are able to represent you in the best way possible. Your blog should be something that is constantly streamed with high quality content and with tidbits of inspiration. This will give people something to look forward to every time and again and something that can really establish your online presence at some point. You also need to work on your portfolio. This is the photographer’s version for his resume. You should put in the best projects that you have worked on here. This is aimed to impress people.
Work fast and efficiently
Do away with any kind of fickle mindedness. Spending too much time scrutinizing the photos that you took and choosing which ones to go with may end up eating up way more time than you think. Be wise with the way you spend your time and be quick with your decisions. Your first gut feelings about an image are almost always usually right.
