I am a hobbyist/part time pro photographer that has covered 137 weddings in the last 7 years. I do not use a business license because in my city it is not required unless I have a stuido set up on my property (which I don't). For the first time EVER, I am being asked to produce "proper documentation to certify that I am licensed to perfrom my skills" by a particular venue site. The owners of this venue are insisting that I must either have a Photographer's License, which does not exist, or that I must produce a business license. I WILL be happy to obtain a business license for future events but I don't have enough time to do this before the wedding. So, before I break it to my clients, is there anything I can do to pursuade the venue owners to allow me to photograph this wedding? Can they legally deny the wedding clients the right to use me? Thanks for any input!
