I have been trying to break into wedding photography for a while and trying to break into weddings without being able to show brides pictures of weddings is a bit hard.
And yes, I have contacted the local wedding photographers in my area for second shooter opportunities and they either do not respond or they already have someone they use. Surprisingly, the wedding pros in my area are the most guarded group of people I have ever dealt with.
So starting this Saturday, I am going to hang out at local wedding venues for a few hours snapping away. I am going to do what I do best, stand back and capture images for my portfolio from a distance, like a photo ninja wielding my 70-200mm L.
Anyone else done anything like that?
