Part of Digital Wedding Photography For Dummies Cheat Sheet

One of the toughest parts of starting your own wedding photography business is getting your name out to prospective clients. Luckily, you can use a few tactics to bring in new business as a wedding photographer:

  • Utilize social media platforms. Posting your wedding photos on social media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, a blog, and Twitter is one of the best ways to draw attention to your photography business. The best part about it? It’s free!

  • Build relationships with other vendors in your area. Get to know other people in the wedding business. If you establish good relationships with other vendors, they may refer you to their own clients.

  • Build and market a website. A website for your wedding photography business gives it credibility and helps potential clients find and evaluate your work. Become familiar with SEO (search engine optimization) tools that can help your website show up in results when people search for wedding photographers online.

  • Get published. Submit your weddings for publication on popular wedding blogs and magazines. If your work is featured, it can be seen by many brides-to-be and may bring in a significant amount of business.
