How To Book Wedding Photography Clients Without Meetings

EPISODE #107: HOW I'M ABLE TO BOOK WEDDING CLIENTS WITHOUT ANY MEETINGS Summary: A huge game changer for me in recent years has been my ability to book wedding photography clients online, without requiring any face-to-face meetings.

Just Following Your Passion Isn’t Enough For A Successful Wedding Photography Business

EPISODE #104: JUST FOLLOWING YOUR PASSION ISN'T GOING TO MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL Summary: Passion is an essential ingredient for any successful wedding photography business and probably the main reason you decided to pursue this path in the first place.

How To Be An Outstanding Wedding Photographer By Listening To Your Clients

EPISODE #103: ARE YOU ACTUALLY LISTENING TO YOUR COUPLES AND WHAT THEY WANT?

Finding Your Wedding Photography Niche

EPISODE #93: WHAT IS YOUR UNFAIR ADVANTAGE AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER? Summary: In many ways, wedding photographers share a lot in common. We are all dedicated to capturing the love and emotion of a couple’s special day and probably have a website that showcases our images and style.

Why Not Treating All Weddings The Same Is Key To A Successful Wedding Photography Business

EPISODE #89: NOT ALL WEDDINGS ARE THE SAME; STOP TREATING THEM AS IF THEY WERE. Summary: Most weddings follow a certain flow - a getting ready session followed by the ceremony, then portraits and a reception. But that’s where the similarities end. No two weddings are the same and we shouldn’t treat them as such for our own convenience or the simplicity of photographing them. It’s really important that we acknowledge this to create a successful wedding photography business and our own...
