I ran across a question on the Wedding Questions blog that got me a little worked up.  Someone (with very poor grammar, I might add) asked, “What is the reason it is impossible to make a living doing wedding photography like 10 years ago?”

Impossible?  Really?

I personally know hundreds of wedding photographers who prove this person wrong every day.  They’re delivering great work and getting paid for it.

Of course, things have changed for wedding photographers, just like they have for the rest of the wedding industry.  We can ignore those changes and risk extinction or adapt and thrive.

I’m placing myself firmly in the latter category.

What do you think?

  1. I do not comment, however I read some of the comments
    here Is It Impossible For Wedding Photographers To Make a Living Today?.
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Is it only me or do some of the responses
    appear like they are written by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting on other sites, I would like to
    keep up with you. Could you post a list of every one of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
