Art/Photography schooling preferred but not necessary.  Must have some example photos, preferably in weddings.  Compensation will be reflected by experience – if your portfolio is not extensive, the price paid by clients will be less.

Candidates must have a minimum portfolio, preferable some in weddings, all your own equipment + back up equipment (preferable).
