I am frustrated, need advice.

So, this is how it goes. The problem is simple but yet a big one. I can´t seem to find clients for my wedding photography business. I shoot weddings because there is the occasional client that books me. I have tried a bunch of things for a couple of years now.

It is important to mention that I do not have enough money to invest in...

What would you have done with this location?

I did this wedding in December 2006 in Perth Western Australia. A great location. What do you think I could have done differently? I am now retired from Wedding Photography but still learning about it.I now teach people how to go about it on an occasional basis.

My Recent Wedding Couple Session

Recently I covered the wedding for a friend couple and what I loved is their photo shoot session and later on I tried to color grade vividly using lightroom. Kindly let me know where to improve my craft

Hi! I'm new to the group and aspiring wedding photographer. Samples from my third wedding gig.

I'm aspiring to do more work as a wedding photographer. My background is in portrait/headshot, food, product, and family photography and finding a good base as a wedding photographer. I'm still playing with style and as mentioned by other photographers in the group, the trend seems to be bright and blown out. I'm hoping there's room for...

OPINION: How moody is TOO moody for weddings

I've noticed a ton of wedding photographers have a similar style (bright and blown out). I understand it's a standard because weddings are meant to be bright and happy. However, for some clients I feel capturing a specific mood to the couple's personality is an important aspect of being considered a professional.

This recent wedding I...

Assisting in Weddings

For many years I trained people in wedding photography and offered many of them the opportunity to come on an actual wedding with me as an assistant and shoot images as well. When they were just students I used to explain to my customers their role. Some became regular assistants and some went on to very successful careers in Photography.Here...

Have you used a stepladder in a wedding.

A small stepladder was something I always took with me on weddings and other assignments as well.Here is a post from my blog.Does anyone else do this? Perhaps someone can invent a digital stepladder!

Congratulations Anja & James

James and Anja tied the knot at one of our favorite churches at P.C.E.A. Church of the Torch Thogoto. The moment we walked into Anja’s room at Southern Sun Mayfair Nairobi for her getting-ready photos, we were immediately drawn to Anja’s gown. The beautiful detail of the back was completely unique and unlike anything we had ever photographed...

What do you wear to a wedding?

These shots are from the 1970's when I was a very new and inexperienced wedding photographer.I wore a safari suit often in those days. They were light weight and cool for our hot Aussie summers. Also nice pockets to put lenses etc in. My dad is in these (with the tie and shirt). He was my first photography mentor.What do you tell your trainee...

Instagram Pod

Hi guys!
I'm thinking about setting up a Instagram pod for wedding photographers. So the idea is to gather a group of 15 members (maximum limit for group DM on Instagram is 15) for those who post quality images about 2-3 times per week.

The idea is to get a group of talented photographers together who value quality over quantity...

After wedding

Hello all!

Not sure how it works outside of Brazil but here we have around 10~20 min to photography after the wedding cerimony and usually what I do is take the couple to a private place and look for a beatiful light and then work on compositions.

How is this after wedding photos for you guys?

IF possible, please rate this...

Dreamy Wedding

Wanted to experiment with OCF lately, so I put together a shoot with some of my favourite vendors in the industry. This is the first time I shot with a dedicated lighting assistant and it was awesome :D

Majestic Dress

I've recently put together a shoot with some of my favorite wedding vendors in Montreal to create some imagery without being bound to clients' constraints.

We took a few different looks with the help of my assistant, but by the time we got to this location he had to leave, so I shot it by myself. I've used 1 bare AD200 flash at camera...
