What parts of your special day will they remember? I often see couples get stressed out about what they should put their precious wedding dollars towards (we all know how quickly those dolla dolla bills fly out of your wallet when it comes to weddings).

Photography is one of those ‘happy professions’ which comes out of passion. Job of a photographer includes creativity, passion, innovation, challenge, and excitement. This is one of those creative profession where degree comes second to creative experience. Before determining it as a full-time profession, you must completely be sure of what you really want to do or where do you want to see yourself in future. Being passionate and doing great in photography may not come together. Your interest should reflect in your work, otherwise, only passion won’t sell in the market. If photography comes to you naturally and appreciations drop by you often, then you should stop hesitating to take the step forward.
