I haven't checked to see how you've organized the SEO of your home page + other pages lower in the hierarchy, but in general it is good to rank more sub-pages (by this I just mean non-home pages) for different things that can possibly rank well. If you have a sub-page about photo-booth rentals, then, yes, those keywords in the friendly url will be helpful. Take care not to push it so hard that it looks odd, though.
If ' /wedding-photographer...' refers to a sub-page (ie. from a link on the home page), then I probably wouldn't bother using that friendly url. Your home page (presuming it is solely about wedding photography-and it should be) is your best place for that. Check out what I do in my galleries for a good idea of what I would recommend, and try to think why I set it up that way.
I don't think 301 directs that lead to a page are a problem at all. But I'm not sure how helpful it will be for the work required.

I have yet another question... this one is with the actual URL's
Should I use:marshallphotographyks.com/photo-booth
same goes for:.../weddings
If it is better for SEO to have the longer ones that have a couple keywords, then would it hurt me SEO-wise to create 301 redirects from /weddings
so that I can still post links on social media that are nice and easy like: marshallphotographyks.com/weddings
even though there is no page there?
