Wedding Photography Courses – One Rises To The Top

Written by Kristy on November 27th, 2009

Hey Kristy here,

Click here to see how I finally found the best of the wedding photography courses.

If you’re looking for the best course on how to become a wedding photographer, then I’m glad you’ve found this website and I strongly suggest you keep reading…

Because this my uncensored story of my search for a good wedding photography course. The ups, the downs, what stuff didn’t work and finally the one thing that did help me achieve my goal of becoming a successful wedding photographer.

I’ve always had a love for photography, so when I was considering what to do with my life naturally becoming a photographer was one of the most obvious choices.

My life didn’t go exactly as I’d planned however (it never does), but I’m now a professional photographer, with the majority of my business coming from wedding photography.

I can attribute where I am today to a strong desire to do what I love and a good wedding photography course that taught me the skills to get there.

Although I have always enjoyed photography immensely, when I started doing it professionally I didn’t have the entire skill set necessary to run a successful photography business.

I had the camera and the ability to photograph, but the basics, such as what the typical wedding day photos include and how to use Photoshop (a crucial skill), I did not have.

After struggling with my first shoots, I realized I needed some assistance from a professional photographer.

At first I called another wedding photographer, but they were less than willing to help me (because I was their competition!)

I then looked for books at the library that focused on wedding photography; the selection was there, but extremely limited.

Finally, on the edge of despair, I went to the Internet and, fortunately, found an excellent wedding photography course that was exactly what I needed: how to become a professional wedding photographer!

The course I stumbled upon was “Wedding Photography Blueprint.”

This course is specifically for aspiring wedding photographers and helps in setting prices, marketing strategies, has Photoshop tutorials, and even gives sample wedding day campaigns for various locations; and amazingly enough a professional wedding photographer of 25 years produced the entire course!

It takes you by the hand, and shows you step by step one of the easiest and most effective methods to becoming a wedding photographer.

As I read through the sales page I noticed more and more features that had definite value for my career as a wedding photographer. At the end of the sales page there was no hesitation when I clicked on the Buy It Now button for PayPal.

Wedding Photography Blueprint in no way guarantees instant success as a wedding photographer, because as with any other business it requires time and effort to make grow.

It has definitely helped me grow in the areas that were weak initially and has been a catalyst for getting my business to where it is now.

It was advertised as a home study wedding photography course, but it has been much more than that. Overall I’ve been extremely happy with the course and would recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a wedding photographer.

The Wedding Photography Business

Written by Kristy on October 21st, 2009

Professional Wedding PhotographerThere are several things you’re looking for when evaluating either offline or online wedding photography courses. A few of those are:

  • Wedding photography training – all the different types of shots that are expected
  • Different techniques for the wedding itself and then the reception (also, some clients like to have you shoot candid shots before the wedding as the bridal party gets ready)
  • Training in all of the equipment required
  • Lots of example shots demonstrating what to do and what not to do
  • Tutoring from real, working professionals in the field
  • Training on how to run a successful wedding photography business
  • How to set your wedding photography prices
  • Ongoing support

When it comes to growing your business, wedding photography works very well with word of mouth promotion. You’re best advertisement is the quality of your work and that you’re easy to work with at all stages of the relationship. People skills are paramount!

Here’s a little tip that doesn’t come up often but is very important: Invest in some wardrobe. The client may not be interested in seeing you run around in your jeans and a t-shirt at their formal wedding. A few basics are all you’ll need for just about any wedding. Ask ahead of time what the theme of the wedding will be and what the average type of dress of the attendees will be. Also, don’t go overboard – you don’t want to show up any of the bridal party.

You’re going to be a professional wedding photographer, so act the part. Dress to blend in and always be courteous and thoughtful to all the guests. Remember, your next client is probably watching you.

Once you complete your intial wedding photography training, there’s a little bonus to be had. You’re not just a wedding photographer, you’re an all around professional photographer that can take advantage of other markets. What are they? Some examples include:

  • Portrait photography
  • Property photography
  • Commercial photography (product shots, catalog models, etc.)

Also, once you become a professional wedding photographer there’s nothing that says you have to stay in your home town. People are getting married all over the world in exciting and exotic locations. If you like to travel, you may have just found a way to get paid to do it!

I’m looking over one of many wedding photography courses right now that looks very promising. I’ll have a review of it out soon. I think you’re going be very happy with what I’ve found. It really covers all the bases and it’s presented in a multimedia format.

I’ll have more for you soon! :)

Wedding Photography Courses – A Dream & A Business

Written by Kristy on October 21st, 2009

Hello Kristy here, and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to investigate one of the best ways to get into the wedding photography business, and that’s with one of the quality wedding photography courses available to you. This makes it possible for you to learn this new business right in the comfort of your own home.

It didn’t you use to be so easy. You either had to spend months interning with a professional wedding photographer and/or take a lot of classes at local trade school or community college that offered wedding photography training (if you could find one that did).

In any event, you could easily spend hundreds, or even thousands of dollars getting this training. At the end of it all, you might know how to take good wedding photographs, but you didn’t necessarily learn to how to operate a wedding photography business, which is important if you plan to make a living at it!

I look forward to helping you choose from among the many wedding photography courses out there and find the one that’s the right fit for you.

Stay tuned, it’s gonna’ be exciting! :)
