Have you ever been to a wedding where the photographer was really bad? It is a huge distraction from the event. Guests focus on the photographer to see what could happen next, rather than on the couple getting married. A photographer can make a big difference at a wedding; therefore, knowing what to do and not to do is very important. There are many aspects of wedding photogrpahy which makes it very different from any other type of photography. First, you only really have one shot at capuring the true moment. Sure, you can stage the kiss or ring exchange after the fact, but that makes you look unprofessional. Weddings are eventful, and ther eis always something going on. You need to be alert and ready at all times.
Second, equipment failure is inevitable, but you need to know how to deal with it so you can keep shooting and not miss a moment. Third, a calm and professional personality is a must. If attendees see you getting nervous and looking uncertain, they will also get anxious. Your personality needs to be easy to work with for other vendors, and uplifting and positive for clients and guests. The WPI course will teach you all the detaiuls about working a weeding, how to shoot the beautiful shots, and guide you through the start-up process. Wedding photography is very fun and you will meet a lot of people.

The workshop program offers instructor reviews and guidance throughout the course. It is the ultimate start-up guide. Operating a home based business takes a certain level of dedication and discipline. It is easy to get derailed, or distracted by kids, TV, spouse, or neighbors. Having a dedicated office and work hours will help eliminate some distractions.
Continued Client Relations
In the WPI course you will learn how to retain wedding clients. Many wedding photogreaphers feel that because their clients will not hire them again for another wedding, there is little followup or relationship building needed. That is very untrue. Once you have a wedding client, you make sure they are satisfied with the wedding photogrpahy service they received. After that you can follow up with anniversary, maternity, baby etc. There are numerous upsell items for each category as well, so there are definately continued income stream possibilities.
