You’re here because you want to become a wedding photographer, right?
Great idea, my friend. 
Average wedding photographers make over $3,000 per wedding. Great photographers can make $10,000+ per wedding. And money isn’t the only reason to be a wedding photographer. It is an important job that helps capture a beautiful day and preserve memories for a lifetime.

I’m obsessed with weddings (after having my own), but this is bringing a new view to it — from the photographer’s perspective of the day. Very good tips and I appreciate the examples with the camera data. Thank – Aubrey Kvasnicka
