Lesson Info

Intro to Succeeding in Wedding Photography

Welcome to the next section. We've learned a lot so far and I want to leave you with a few more things in this last section. And most of that is succeeding as a wedding photographer. A lot of the stuff I've actually talked to you about throughout the last sections and lectures, but I wanna pull it all together. I wanna remind you that it is important. What you are doing. A wedding photographer is a huge part of a special day for a couple. And it is also a really wonderful career choice or even a side hustle as a side job. So in this next uh few lectures, I'm going to talk about some really important things that I feel is sort of the philosophy of succeeding as a wedding photographer and things to really keep in mind to help push you forward and not only your art and creativity, but also your business.
