Coming to you from John Branch IV Photography, this great video tutorial will give you some helpful advice for getting into wedding photography. One of the best things you can do before you make the jump is to spend some time as a second shooter. This will allow you to work on your technique and learn the ins and outs of the genre and process without the pressure of all the most important shots and being the point person for the couple and guests. Not only will this improve your work, it will make you far more confident when you decide to step into it as the primary shooter.
