Research, experiment, and practice with lighting and different styles to broaden your skills.

Q: What do I need to get started as a wedding photographer?

A: In terms of physical equipment, all you need to shoot your first wedding is a couple of high-quality lenses, a camera body, a flash setup, and film or memory cards to store images, if you're shooting digital. You'll also want to bring backup equipment and make sure your gear is insured in case anything happens.
