Happy weekend! We’re off to shoot our SECOND wedding this week! We went from not shooting since February to photographing two weddings in different states in four days!! Since weddings are picking back up in some parts of the country, we have a brand new Youtube Episode sharing how photographers can bring in more income from the work you’re already doing!
I have found that offering professional albums for clients is either something that photographers LOVE or something that they steer clear of all together.
Why is this the case?
Well, I think offering professional albums are a tangible product that can be intimidating for some photographers, especially if they are new to the industry. The options are overwhelming, the pricing structure has to be done well in order to turn a profit and the process seems like more WORK than it’s WORTH!
I totally get that. I used to feel that way too…..
However, now that I have a system and two companies that I trust and that make my life easier, offering albums is a no-brainer!
Why would I NOT offer this amazing legacy-product to my couples and bring in more income in the process?!
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
