I recently read this sad story of a wedding photographer having their computer stolen, which had the only copy of three couples wedding photos on it. It’s very sad for the couples, and totally irresponsible of the so called professional to have only o...
Raleigh Wedding Photographer Diane McKinney shares some very valuable information for new photographers on how the "back of house" should be running. Backups, spare equipment, people, you name it! Wedding photography is a wonderful profession but it's also unforgiving - make sure to read Diane's article!

Thanks for having me. I'm from the wonderful Lehigh Valley in Pa. My wife Kristi and I are in our 11th. year shooting weddings from local to Pittsburgh to the Chesapeake. I think my quest for a kinder, nicer forum has ended.

Has anyone shot a wedding at Christ Church in Raleigh recently? I just recieved their photography rules that basically say that I can't even go into the sancutary...can anyone shed any light on their expereience there?

First off, I will admit that I am still fairly new to this business and VERY new to North Carolina. I am interested in eventually getting into Weddings in the Raleigh area (where I live) and am wanting some experience and to see the ebb and flow of wedding photography via a second shooter position. I do understand that second shooter's are not always shooting, and that a lot of times they are holding lighting, carrying bags, etc. I am totally up for this too! So, if anyone is interested, I'm offering the following to experienced photographer who are willing to "take me under their wing" and allow the me the opportunity to second shoot:
1. No expected compensation - though I'm not turning down gas money, if offered (obviously!).
2. Reliable 2nd shooter willing to help with any other tasks throughout the wedding.
3. No direct competition since I eventually plan to be in a different city.
4. All images will be given to you for your use, provided I do get credit as a second shooter. I will not post these for my own promotional use.
If interested, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am still working on getting a blog/website up and running, but do have a Facebook page with some work on it. www.Facebook.com/ElizabethRainePhotography

Hi, I'm Elizabeth, one of the DWF ex-pats! I'm a wedding and portrait photographer from East Central Illinois. I've been in business for nearly ten years. My studio is housed in a circa-1870 building in our historic downtown area. Right now, I'm making renovations to house my new boudoir and pin up studio, so I can slowly transition out of weddings over the next few years.
I'm so glad that Brian invited all of us to join the WPS, and I'm happy to meet all of you!

Hi, I'm Allison from Lincoln, Nebraska. I'm also a transplant from the DWF. Glad to be here!

And from DWF. Was a member there for over 12 years membership expired last November. Went back in March and renewed for one month and the 1 month wasn't even worth it. It had been changing for so many years and now I think it is a lost cause at least for me it is.
Glad to be here!
Wedding photographer for 13 years but lately it seems like we are doing more portraits then weddings.
