...to do wedding photography professionally? Was there really any defining moment where you thought "I can do this" or did someone just ask you can you decided you had enough skill? I personally don't think that I could manage being the head photographer at a wedding. I'd much rather just be second shooter and not risk being sued..... On a side note, when did you decide to go into photography professionally? I am not a professional, but I do charge people in my area and whatnot because the quality of photography is VERY low where I live...very...low. It's kind of like the low rent government housing of photography. There are only 2 decent photographers in my area, and they do mostly commercial work as far as I know, so I just take photos as a supplementary form of cash because that's about my only marketable skill. Well, that and computer stuff. But when you get rid of viruses on computers the client is never happy because you obviously moved their folder of Little Billy's 5th birthday, so I don't do that often. But anyways...when did YOU decide to get into the biz professionally, and when did YOU decide to conquer wedding photography?
