Two high school seniors trying to start a photography business?

So my friend and I are pretty good at photography as a hobby and we would like to take things to the next level.

we have over $2,000 dollars of professional studio camera equipment since it was kind of a passionate hobby. Now that we think we're good enough, we would like to start our own business; taking glamor shots and doing photo-shoots for local bands and individuals.

so the question is:

where is the best place to start? should we register as an Limited liability company? or is there a better, less hassle way of registering as a small scale legal company?

We don't have much free time since we're high school seniors dealing with apps and SATs, but we'd just like to make some extra cash.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!
