I had the chance to speak to a group of wedding photographers in my community and I’ve found out that they are helping each other hand in hand to keep their photography businesses grow. This article will help photographers who are about to start their photography business since we will talk about some important details that every photographer should know.
Photographers should follow the right pricing brackets
If it’s your first time to accept wedding offers or in the photography business, you have to educate yourself first about the rules of giving out photography pricing. So essentially, you have to charge according to your experience, photography gears to be used and skills and don’t ever undersell.
Your clients would understand the pricing if you also give them an amazing wedding album. Tell them everything you use, so if you’re using post processing software or paid wedding Lightroom preset workflows, charge them accordingly.
Photographers should understand that they are working with a wedding production team.
Basically, the whole wedding preparation consists a lot of team: food caterers, musicians/bands, event manager, florist and wedding photographers. As a photographer, you need to understand that your role and responsibility is not limited to capturing the couple alone. You are also expected to take random moments with other teams.
Photographers should have clean and clear wedding photography contract
Basically, a contract is a must to every transaction. Same with the photography business; before you can actually accept a wedding offer, you should provide the client a clean and clear contract that contains the do’s and Don’ts and rules and regulation. Securing a contract will not just secure your business and profession, it also gives the clients assurance that you are capable and trustworthy to be their wedding photographer. Nobody wants to get tricked anyway, right? Like what most people say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
