Do

Look at prices charged by pho­tog­ra­phers around your lo­cal area when con­sid­er­ing how much to charge per wed­ding.

Use so­cial me­dia such as Face­book and Twit­ter to help mar­ket your pho­tog­ra­phy, and also help drive traf­fic to your busi­ness’s web­site.

Con­sider tak­ing cour­ses in both busi­ness and pho­tog­ra­phy to im­prove your skills in ev­ery area of your busi­ness.

Don’t

Ex­pect to shoot a huge num­ber of wed­dings in your first year, as many peo­ple plan their wed­ding at least six months in ad­vance.

Start by shoot­ing wed­dings for free, as it can be dif­fi­cult to move from free to charg­ing a fee that will al­low you to make money.

Ex­pect to turn up on the day and shoot the wed­ding; you will need to spend time be­fore the day plan­ning the shoot, and af­ter­wards pro­cess­ing the im­ages.
