Help: How long can I get away with it?
Dec 8, 2009

So I shot my first wedding last month and it went well. It was for friends, I did it with a buddy, and I didn't get paid. So I was thinking that next year, I might post something on craigslist and try out a couple more weddings to see how I like it. But this time, I'd charge a little money.

My question is this--how long can I get away with not registering a business, buying liability insurance, etc. The reason is, I don't even know if I'm going to like doing weddings, so I don't want to have to pay a CPA, figure out taxes and social security for me and my buddy, and buy insurance for a year just for a couple weddings where I probably won't make much money.

Any advice? Is there an easier way to get started?

P.S. I'm in California, if that matters.
