wedding photography tipsCreate a blog and pick a schedule to post new posts and do it religiously

A blog is one of the best platforms for you to be able to announce what your take is on certain trends or issues related to the wedding photography field. It will also reiterate your relevance to the digital world and pretty much let followers and clients alike know what you’re up to, what your most current inspirations are, and what your goals may be in the near foreseeable future.

Update your portfolio with your best and recent works and arrange them attractively

Your portfolio is your holy grail of resumes. Wedding photographers are blessed indeed because they are in a profession where they can be lengthy and artsy with their “resumes” and the prospective clients won’t be bored out of their wits with it and will instead spend a lot of time poring over those works of art posted. Choose nothing but the very best of your works. Be extremely picky when it comes to this process and make sure that you only go with something that really represents you and your photography style.

Get your hands on great editing software that will help you produce high quality photos

You need to be able to touch up your photos in such a way that minor bugs or imperfections will be fixed with much ease and convenience. Professional photos will have to be edited to fix the photographer’s and the client’s specifications so this is a great investment, when you think about it.

Tier your pricing packages and come up with an a la carte list for your services

When it all comes down to it, wedding photography is still a business and you need a good deal of marketing and price strategizing in order to pull it off or in order to actually be successful with it.
