Just a quick update here as wedding package bookings are going completely crazy this year. I’ve worked harder this year to get my business name out there for weddings, and it’s paying off I guess as the interest in weddings has led to a lot of new wedding photography inquiries and bookings.
It can be hard to find the right wedding photographer – your venue gives you recommendations, your friends give you recommendations, you have a budget, AND you have so many other things to think about. So people select their photographer for lots of different reasons…and that makes it hard to market your services if you are a wedding photographer. I’m thrilled that so many of my former wedding clients recommend me to their friends, it does seem the personal recommendation is one of the very best marketing vehicles…so doing weddings helps to book new weddings. Which means I need to do MORE weddings, right?
Even with all of that, I’m still amazed by the number of 2017 wedding’s we’ve already booked – well into the fall of 2017. So if you know someone who is getting married – and if they haven’t yet found their photographer, it probably should be the next thing on their list. It is true that you should hire the photographer right after booking the venue – and since venue bookings in Northern Virginia and Loudoun County are almost 18 months- 2 years out, that means wedding photographers are right there too.
I’d love to send my wedding information to anyone needing a photographer – there are still openings for both this year and 2017 – but I don’t book every weekend with weddings, so I encourage anyone looking to look early and save a date if they can!
