Wedding photography can be a lucrative genre, but it can also be extremely challenging and taxing, and it certainly is not for everyone. If you are newer to photography and wondering if it is the genre for you, check out this great video essay that features an experienced wedding photographer and friend of Fstoppers discussing the five best and worst aspects of the profession.

Coming to you from Pye Jirsa with Adorama TV, this excellent video essay discusses the five best and worst aspects of wedding photography. Successful wedding photographers can make a very comfortable living, and if you are the type of person who enjoys the social aspect and challenge of being creative in a variety of different scenarios, it can be quite enjoyable. On the other hand, there is always a lot of pressure on the wedding photographer, particularly since unlike most other genres, you can't go back and reshoot the images you missed, so you always need to be at the top of your game. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Jirsa.
