I can only answer for myself. I would look for a better paying job that could be a career, but try to keep the photog job on the side.

Sadly, money does make the world go round and is a major cause of fights and stress in a relationship so the more secure you can be on that front the better it will be for you two right now.

Also, health insurance is REALLY REALLY important. If you get in an accident, break your bones, get diagnosed with a disease, need surgery you have just guaranteed yourself financial hardship for nearly the rest of your life.

Have you considered getting your own freelance photography gigs? Perhaps doing pregnancy shoots, senior pictures, or family photos. This might help supplement your income and lead to you having enough independent clients that you dont solely depend on him for photo work.

I agree that maybe you could get a stable, full-time jobs with benefits and try to hold onto the photog. job on the side? If you’re going to be supporting yourself and your husband, benefits and health insurance are important.

One of my best friends is in PT school, so I know just what you mean about the demanding hours and summer clinicals. It may be really helpful for the start of your marriage for you to have some stability. It sounds like you could hold onto some of the photography work on the side, so you don’t have to give up all ties to your dream career. And then maybe once your FI/husband is finished with school, you’ll be able to focus a lot more on making the photog. dream happen!

Good luck hun. 🙂
