Happy 4th Anniversary to Candice Wright Photography

Let me take you back to when it all began. In the words of Sophia Petrillo “Picture it Miami, FL, 2011.” I just purchased a Canon 20d camera from my friend Trina and I was excited to start taking pictures of everythang! I was taking pictures of everything at weird angles with no concept of light and composition. I thought I was awesomesauce!  Lo and Behold, my Father in Law at the time was getting married to his girlfriend so I asked them can I shoot the wedding? They said yes because they didn’t even have a photographer. It was a very small wedding in his cousin’s house in Kendall, Florida so I didn’t feel too intimidated (yeah right, I was shaking in my sandals, no boots it’s Florida remember?). After the wedding I edited the images put a whole bunch of filters on and Voila I was a wedding photographer!

Haha Not quite… You see, wedding photography is not a hobby, it’s a business. Over the 4 years that I have been in photography, I have learned the hard way that if you don’t take being a photographer seriously it will swallow you whole. It’s more than owning a fancy camera by the way.  You need to be insured, have a business license, pay taxes, continue your education, and have the ability to take care of your clients while maintaining your own life! It’s a lot ya’ll!

This morning I was in one of my photography groups still learning shooting techniques. I have a lot to learn and I hope by year 5 I can make you all more proud of me than you are today! Thank you to all of my past clients, present clients, and future clients! I am nothing without you in these photography streets! Know that!

Thank you to all!
