Wedding photography: did you get what you need to become a wedding photographer?

A career in wedding photography is very rewarding. Why shouldn’t it be; He fulfills his dream of making money doing what he loves, and it can’t be better than that.

However, starting a business is not for the faint of heart; There is a steep learning curve, and it can fall and recover several times. The key must not be surrendered under any obstacle. Perseverance is the key to success. Most people make mistakes in the first year, either at a lower price, because they choose unwanted customers or choose the wrong suppliers. In fact, you never stop studying in this business, and this makes it interesting. You can fall into almost every trap, but in the end it is a good exercise, since you never make the same mistakes again. So don’t be disappointed and don’t give up when things seem difficult. This is a necessary and invaluable learning experience.

I always say that a successful wedding photography business is 50% of photographyand 50% of sales, marketing and impeccable administration. You may know that some fantastic business-based photographers just fall in the face because they lack the other necessary sales and marketing skills that are so necessary; Good business acumen with smart and effective sales and marketing is the key to great success in the industry. At the same time, you will see that average, but consistent, photographers are successful in business, since the 50/50 balance is almost perfect and they are excellent in marketing.

Wedding photography is a difficult career on the coast

Although it is extremely pleasant and useful (especially when you see the admirable faces of the couple looking at their beautiful photographs in search of memories, full of pleasant memories), it can also be very stressful without proper preparation and experience. There is no second chance to shoot if everything goes wrong, and you must remember that it captures one of the most important, if not the most important, days in the life of a man and a woman together.

The digital era has revolutionized wedding photography

This has made the business more creative, easier to manage than flexible film, does not require more expensive processing of multiple film reels and also allows Photoshop’s flexibility to be manipulative and creative.

It seems that a shoulder load was taken when you can take 600 photos without panicking about processing costs and the need to change film rolls. However, along with digital technologies, the computer has additional processing time and many skills that must be mastered to reduce this time. It is important to understand what you are doing in the digital world, and it can be a steep learning curve, but it is worth the risk, as the rewards are excellent.

Adopt Pets from the Shelter

Some people feel that when they purchase a pet at a pet store, they really get the best pet that they can show off to their friends. This is a purebred pet bought at a pet store, where did they get it from? This is a question that people want to know. The parents of this animal suffered, for example, from a puppy mill to produce this terribly purebred pet that you wanted so badly. The show opened people’s eyes to what was happening behind the scenes of where some of these pet stores acquire their animals.

There are many pets that were bred clean and ended up in shelters because they did not have a home

Parents were not sterilized or neutered, their owners abandoned them because the owners were too old and could no longer have them they moved to care, they had problems with allergies, they broke up, they could no longer afford it, children, and there could be no reason for the fault of these animals. Some may have ended them because of cruelty from previous owners or from blaming the puppies themselves.

There are purebred, mixed breeds of dissimilar animals that you are looking for and perhaps are trying to decide which breed to get  instead, you could get the best of both breeds in one mixed animal. Do you think these pets will love you less because they are not purebred or will care because they are not purebred? Think about the fact that most people are not members of the royal family or from high society of the elect, so why worry about whether your pet is purebred or not.

Pets from the Shelter

Animals from the shelter, whether it be a dog or a cat, no matter what animal is in the shelter, have already been checked for behavioral problems, health problems, they have been given injections, given a clean health score or they would not have been ready for adoption, and either ovaries have been removed and already castrated, or in some cases a voucher for this is issued. The animals from the shelters are well taken care of to be sure that they are ready for adoption, and even then the shelters study the family that adopts them to make sure that the connection with the pet is suitable for both. Therefore, you get more from the shelter than from the pet store, which costs more.


In some cases, animals from the pet store came from puppy breeding factories or from a pedigree mill, where parents never saw any human interaction, were never out of the cage, kept in poor conditions, had inadequate medical care, which led to behavior problems and problems with health that may not appear for several months after. These problems can cost thousands of dollars, if treated at all.
