Communicating with your clients is one of the most important facets of being a successful Seattle wedding photographer. Understanding what they are looking for as a memento of their big day is just as important as being able to see the perfect shot, and capturing that special moment. Of course, technical know how is a must too, especially when it comes to lighting and shooting in different lighting conditions. To work as a wedding photographer, you won’t need any specific qualifications, although most photographers have a creative or photographic background. Another important part of your work is attracting clients; word of mouth in the greater Seattle area often secures work for photographers, and marketing yourself however you can is important. Be prepared to have most of your work during the spring and at the weekend, but it can be a rewarding and fun way to make a living.
