Wedding photography can be quite the isolating industry. You don't have coworkers in the normal sense. You don't have to go to school to do it, so you may not even know a lot of other photographers personally. There is no regulatory system that tells you how or what to do, which is great, but this can also lead to a lot of unsure feelings. You may be thinking... How do I get from point A to point B in my business? What do I need to really develop my in-camera skill? What does a full wedding gallery even look like? Basically, it's a free-for-all kind of industry and everyone needs a helping hand to guide them through. I wouldn't be where I am today without my peers who were willing to correct and direct me as my business grew and craft refined. You cannot get better without a friend to walk you through it (and without putting in the work). Mentoring with me will be the kick in the butt you probably need and the clear direction you've been searching for.
