Model Your Brand:Marketing For Photographers

You are a creative. In fact, your entire photography business is built on your personal creativity. However, many photographers struggle to efficiently market their offerings to new wedding couples. What are the non-negotiable marketing must-dos for wedding photographers?

  • Referral programs with high ROI

Dark Room:Epic Portfolio Fails

Zäni & Du Wayne Denton, Owners, Zäni & Du Wayne Wedding Photography Artisans

In this era of social media, there is no shortage of imagery. Couples see once-in-a-lifetime shots almost daily. Photo proliferation leads to saturation and desensitization. It’s time to overhaul your portfolio.

  • Portfolio photos that are deal-breakers
  • Images that make you the only one on their list
  • Ideal portfolio photo combinations

Poser:Live Model Wedding Day Posing

Stephen & Summer Gossett, Owners, FamZing Studios & Noveli Photography

Posing is its own language. To most couples, posing is a foreign language. The wrong poses make couples feel awkward and self-conscious. The right poses produce frame-worthy imagery that bring you immediate and long-term profits.

  • Posing that doesn't feel fake
  • Live on-stage models
  • Inventive poses that can be done in 10 minutes

Reel Weddings:Create Insta Reels, YouTube Shorts, and TikTok Videos

You don’t have to be Instagram famous to convert social media into real sales. Your micro productions can be fun and inexpensive to create. Get ready to promote your brand to wedding couples by entertaining them with short videos featuring your photography.

  • Simple video techniques and edits
  • Shortcuts for content creation in one recording
  • Insta Reels, YouTube Shorts, and TikTok Videos

Illuminate:Master Class On Lighting

Sal Cincotta, Owner, Creative Cinc

Light is capricious. It’s unpredictable, unreliable, and unforgiving. When you shape and control light, it adds texture, illumination, and depth. Blend great light, composition, and emotion to achieve next-level imagery.

  • Cures for harsh-light situations
  • Natural and off-camera flash samples
  • Dramatic lighting that wins awards

Fine Art:Imaginative Photo Shoots

Michael Anthony, Owner, Michael Anthony Photography

Engaged couples want unique photos, but they don’t have an unlimited budget. Capturing creative images doesn’t require a passport, elaborate props, or deep pockets. Create the images that tell their story like no one else.

  • Improvisational and brainstorming techniques
  • Storytelling in unexpected locations
  • Epic lighting techniques

Priceless Images:Photo Price Lists

Vanessa Joy, Owner, Vanessa Joy Photography- Sponsored by Canon

The bouquet gets thrown, the dress gets stored, and the music fades. All they have left are their memories and your images. How do you get paid more for the legacy you create?

  • In-depth pricing comparisons
