Hi folks, I've been thinking about trying my hand at wedding photography. I love the whole mood of weddings and the opportunity for beautiful shots. I've heard that being an apprentice/assistant is a good approach. But I'm wondering if I need to take photography classes, education, etc. before I even think of contacting a photographer. What would be the best way to go about it? It seems presumtuous to just go right out and offer myself when I really have no professional or wedding experience. Am I being realistic? Or am I just in an overly optimistic hurry to quit my painfully non-creative, 8 to 5 job?
