Bank on what makes you different.
Wedding photography is all about making sure that you are able to bank on the things that make you different and make you unique as a wedding photographer. You can’t afford to be generic or to be pretty much like everyone else at the end of the day. You need to figure out what makes you stand out from the rest of the crowd and develop the things that make you really different and that make you more or less able to identify yourself from the rest of the other wedding photographers in the wedding photography field when it all comes down to it.
Don’t just take the easy road and end up doing what everyone else are trying to do.
If you would like to make sure that you are really able to establish your own kind of brand at the end of the day, then you need to make sure that you are able to work on it as much as possible. Carve your own path and make sure that you are able to really make yourself different and unique compared to the rest of your competition. Your brand and your reputation should purely be all you and all about you. If you are just ok will more or less mimicking the next big hit in wedding photography, then you will just be another wannabe or another copycat. You need to really establish yourself differently as much as possible. Don’t be afraid to explore new things and to experiment if you have to. Your progress in quirky wedding photography will be slow at first but it is something that will eventually progress the longer that you are able to work on it.
Keep a job on the side.
It would be practical for you to make sure that you are able to keep a job on the side or at least have some source of income while you are still trying to establish your career in wedding photography. The truth of the matter is that you will not really have a lot of clients going for you in the beginning. You will need to be able to book clients back to back in order for you to make your income coming from your wedding photography a little more sustainable when it all comes down to it. It would be nice if you will be able to develop this while you are still trying to grow your career. It will help stave off a lot of nervous energy and a lot of the waiting as well as pressure while you are still waiting for your next big client to book you at the end of the day.
You can opt for a full time or a part time job.
Any job will do at this point in time. This is just to make sure that you are more or less able to get something that will help you sustain your basic every day needs without having to depend on the income coming from the wedding photography clients that you are able to book just yet.
