Wedding Photography. Cheers…

by Kyle Smith

For the past few years I’ve moonlighted as a freelance wedding photographer. It’s been pretty fun but now that I don’t have as much free time it has become a chore. There’s just too much extra time and travel required. Some have suggested to simply raise my prices to make up the difference, but when you raise prices people expect a certain standard of quality. Now I’m not saying that I try and produce garbage for my current clients, but if I screw something up they can’t complain as much as they could if I charged the going rate.

So with all that said, I will no longer be doing weddings. I have three clients left for the year and then I’m done, for now at least. I might still take on the occasional family portrait or baby portraits, but no more wedding ceremonies, receptions or events for that matter. They’re so exhausting and then when you’re done you have 1200+ photos to sift through.

Now that Jackson is here, I just don’t want to spend anymore time away from him than I already have to. Now I’ll just turn all of my photographic urges towards him, making him the most photographed kid in the world.

It’s been real, it’s been fun; but it hasn’t been real fun…

  1. Good for you. Spend more time photographing your good looking kid. Then you can post them and everyone can see how amazing he is.
    You’re a good dad.

  2. Sounds like you might go through a messy divorce from the wedding business.
