Wedding Photography Duration icon 100 hours Qualification icon Statement of Attainment Lessons icon 9 lessons

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY ONLINE STUDY

Learn to produce quality wedding photos as a commercial enterprise.

Wedding photography can be the most critical and stressful type of photography because:

  1. The event is so very important to the bride and groom
  2. The bride and groom are usually quite stressed out
  3. The wedding only happens once
  4. More than at most other types of events, photographs are an integral part of what happens during the wedding.

At other events (eg. sporting events), many different people are part of the event. At a wedding, the total focus is on the bride and groom - they are the event!

The photography needs to maintain this strong focus on the bride and groom and convey the image that they are first and best in every way on that occasion. The whole concept of a wedding is always romantic, frequently fashionable and preferably overflowing with optimism and life.
