I think it is a tough gig if you are a full time wedding photographer.
The wedding photography market now is so competitive with so many people want to enter the market for various reasons (college students who can't find job, stay at home mom/dad, weekend warrior, people leaving entry job, it's fun, etc). It's hard to compete against some of these people based on price, skill, or even marketing. Part timer and weekend warrior will have a lower cost of business to charge a more competitive price. People enjoy doing wedding photography and earning modest amount to pay for their camera gears. Youtube, and alot of great photography educations content out there make it really easy to learn lighting, editing and posing. Full timer have to compete with these part timers who are competent and talented photographers that are undercharging them. That's two-sided attacks. Social media also make it easy to market photography.
As for me, I do wedding photography as a side job and enjoy it very much. Doing this on side allow me to say No to clients who are difficult, demanding, and cheap. I charge a decent amount to make it worthwhile and have an assistant to help with carrying lighting gears, help me get the shots, etc. I can't imagine doing this when I get older or when everyone underbid each other to get the gig.
