I've got to ask all you experienced wedding pro's... how do you break into the market? When you're first striking out on your own, even if you've got the experience, there's no reputation to draw on. Even your wedding portfolio coverage is limited... So, how do you market yourself? I've been watching the boards, and normally when someone asks about starting out the answers are always, "become a second shooter for someone with experience." I agree! But, after that, how do you find clients when you go off on your own? Personally, I'm working something out with a local seamstress that does bridal alterations in order to get referrals from her. I'm also offering free engagement sessions in a local university student paper - in the hopes that couples will sign me on for the wedding too once we've had a good shoot. What did you do? And, what am I missing? Thanks!
