Exactly.
We have one in our town - she shoots no weddings in our town...all in the city an hour away. Does maybe 10 a year.
Her hubby has a 'real' job.
She also shoots newborns and teaches at a local college (photoshop, photography, etc).
A few others I've met at PPA events -if you ask them- will tell you they do 5 big weddings a year and often make their money off school pics, owning a chain of 'portrait innovations' and the like.

Vision without execution is hallucination. T. Edison.
My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value

Yep !! I know of one who's hubby owns a two large Chevy Dealerships. She could do anything she wants, She has the guaranteed income from some other source so that her photography is a "paid " hobby. She doesn't have to worry about making ends meet from it. That's taken care of already. WE should be so lucky !
