How can I start a 'business' of becoming a wedding photographer?
I have recently shot my fiance's brothers wedding and it was perfect. The job, the adrenaline, the pictures (and of course the wedding!). I want to do this more, to create a business from this experience. Where do I get started though? I have already asked family members to keep me mind if anyone asks about a wedding photographer, but what else do I do? I'm on a tight budget so I can't create a website (yet anyway) though I do have a portfolio printed I can show. Any tips?
