Okay- So I really think I would like to shoot weddings someday. What is the right way to begin? My daughter was a flower girl in a wedding last month and I studied the photographer closely. I thought he was very good and while I watched him in action- particularly with candid shots at the rehearsal dinner and the reception- it really sparked my enthusiasm to try this out myself. I know I would need a better camera body, some more lighting, a back-up, etc. But the last thing I want to do is sell myself as something I am not and possibly screw up somebody’s wedding day. Obviously everyone who shoots weddings did it for the first time once- so what is the best way to get started, develop a portfolio, gain confidence, experience, etc. I bought a couple of books and am reading up on it. Is there such a thing as photography apprenticeships? Or maybe I should just nose around and find a couple who could not afford a photographer otherwise and would be grateful for my best effort? Some honest feedback here would be sincerely appreciated.
