IT CAN BE FUN
but it can be hard and stressful too.
Wedding Photography – 7 things we wish we knew before we started.
During one of the last weddings in 2015, we met an old friend from college. At dinner we got talking and she asked how we ended up in this business. While we explained how and why we started, her immediate response was
– “Wow, your job is so cool and fun, and you earn a ton of money too! I would love to do what you do!”
We are pretty sure everyone gets the same reaction every now and then. Well, the reality is a bit different, isn’t it? We do have fun and the job is mostly awesome, but at the same time it is hard work. Most people don’t think about how much time we spend editing photos back home. Hard working hours at weddings are (on in average on the wedding day at least 12 hours, our record was 21 hours), how we don’t get to spend most weekends with friends and family… Being a wedding photographer is a job, just like any other job. Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s hard, sometimes it’s super stressful! But we love our job, because at the end of the day there is nothing better than making our clients happy.
