Break down the details of your wedding photography services to clients.
Don’t hesitate to get this done the right way. Don’t rush through the process either. If you need to go through things a little slower than usual just to make sure that you get this done the right way every single time, then go ahead and get it done. Don’t hesitate to go through the items on your list line by line either. If clients have a question about anything while you are in the middle of the discussion, make a point out of really dropping everything to cater to their requests. However, at the same time, you should be marking off where you dropped off so that you can easily pick things up where you left off. This isn’t all that hard to pull off. You just need to make sure that you have the right presence of mind to get things done while you are at it.
Don’t be complacent with things like these because a client discussion session that has been set up the right way will always turn out to be well worth the effort at the end of the day. Add value to the services that you present out to them. Don’t just read things out with corresponding price tags because this doesn’t add value to what you do and to what you are offering out to them by and large.
Go through the venue prep work of the wedding photography shoot that you need to facilitate.
The wedding venue will turn out to be an extremely important part of what you do as a wedding photographer. The more you know about the wedding venue in advance, the better prepared you will turn out to be in the long run. Get to review the page as much as you possibly can. Make sure that at the end of the day, you get things checked out the right way as much as possible. Make sure that you always set up an ocular visit ahead of time. If the wedding venue is somewhere exclusive, like a members-only resort or something similar to that, you should still be able to get into the thick of things as much as possible. Include the clients in on this if you have to. Another thing or another approach that you can go ahead and check out is by packaging it via an engagement shoot. This will hype the clients up and get them excited with the aspect of bringing you along in the wedding venue before the actual wedding day.
Be prepared for any delays as you go along.
Delays will always turn out to be a part of the wedding prep work and process. Anticipate this as much as you possibly can. Make sure that you get to check out the possibility of cutting your allotted time in half if you have to. This way, you don’t really get stressed out too much if things don’t pan out exactly as you would like them to. You need to remind yourself time and time again that weddings are big events and they usually take an entire army of vendors to get things set up. A delay on the end of one of the vendors can quickly have a domino effect on things and this is what you need to go ahead and address as much as possible.
