2. Wedding Filmmaker
A very rewarding and lucrative career that I wish I would have jumped into sooner. The art of telling a couple’s love story starting from their day of marriage, surrounded by their friends, family, and beautiful decor. It is a career path where you can work for companies or have your own set of clients that require a high level of customer service and communication. Building up a company through recommendations, gainfully booking up each season. Adding more to packages, to your equipment list, and possibly working exclusively for venues. The one thing about filming a wedding is it is a lot of work, going non- stop on wedding days with hours of editing to continue. It is important to schedule time wisely, don’t’ overbook yourself, and adjust rates over the years in this career path.
