In wedding photography, it’s important for you to make sure that you are able to network with all of the right people so that you can continue to bring your brand forward and shine the light on all of the right people as you go along. The first thing that you need to do as a newbie in wedding photography would be to constantly seek out the company and the acquaintances of like minded people. Hang around those who support you and who understand what you are trying to do and the fact that you are trying to establish yourself and make a name for yourself in wedding photography.
Going through all of that is already hard enough as it is.
You don’t have to make it doubly hard by having to go through the motions of coming across oppositions or any negative vibes from friends or other people you may know. Surround yourself with people who support you and who can be quite influential to your success. Go with people who inspire you to be better and to strive harder in what you are trying to accomplish in wedding photography because you will see that the struggle and the stresses that come along will be significantly lower compared to when you don’t have them around you.
Network with vendors
Make a habit out of constantly networking with vendors in the wedding industry, even to your fellow colleagues in wedding photography. What goes around comes around. There is actually such a thing as business karma. When you constantly support people and when you are always being nice to them in a way or so, it will bounce back to you. Sometimes, all it takes is liking some of their posts and maybe doing a quick shoutout in your pages and blog and so on.
These are relatively small gestures and tasks but the kind of impact that this has on your reputation and the kind of image that you are able to build of yourself is tremendously impressive. People will be happy to endorse you and they will be happy to help you out with promotions or in any way that they can simply because they think that you are a genuinely nice person who has shown them good in the past. Emotional banking and investment is very real and it is so much more effective and cost efficient compared to spending tons of money on a marketing team and paid ads.
Make good use of your wedding photography blog.
Whenever you have a wedding to feature in your blog, make sure that you put in a section for the vendors list. List down all of the vendors involved in bringing the wedding together and make sure that you also get to put in links that will eventually lead people back to their specific blogs. Post and tag them on social media so that they know about it. They will be more than happy to share your content, bringing you more audiences as you go along especially because of the fact that they now have a stake in your blog.
