Most Salt Lake Valley wedding photographers have a check-list they go by; one the bride and groom are usually asked to fill out prior to the wedding. If not, make sure you provide the photographer with a list of what photos you want taken. If you are unsure of what you should include in that list, you can find photo check lists in bridal magazines and websites such as knotforlife.com. Not using a checklist is asking for trouble… and missed photo ops you’ll never have again. To avoid this unfortunate mishap, make a point to select someone (the bride’s mom, a favorite aunt or sister in-law) who will be responsible for working with the photographer; a checks and balances system, you might say.

Other tips to keep in mind when hiring your wedding photographer include:

  1. Examining their portfolio. Do you like their work? Are they creative? Is the lighting and exposure up to par?
  2. Ask for references-and follow up by contacting one or two of them.
  3. Remember that not all wedding photographers need to be ‘professionals’. There are plenty of hobby photographers whose work is top quality and definitely wedding-worthy. Ask family and friends for suggestions, contact your local photography club or the photo-journalism department of a nearby college or university.
  4. Make sure the wedding photographer fully explains what you are getting for your money. Are you getting full rights to the photos? How much time is included in the price? How long will it be before you receive your photos?
  5. Get it in writing. This includes receipts for payments made and a ‘contract’ for what you are receiving in return for your payment.
  6. Feel comfortable with the photographer. Do they listen to what you want?

Your wedding photographer will most likely take up a fair amount of your wedding budget. That’s why it is important to get as much for your money as possible without compromising the quality of your photos.

Put Your Best Face Forward On Facebook - Facebook has become one of the most popular destinations for social networking on the web. When I first signed up for Facebook I'll admit I didn't do anything with my account for several months. Then I started hanging out on the site and wasn't long before I realized the potential networking possibilities that existed for connecting with other photographers and business professionals. 

4 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Facebook:

1. Set up albums within your Facebook account to display your photography.

2. Provide links to your website, blog, links to your articles, classes you teach and other media coverage you receive.

3. Find and join groups, within Facebook offers tons of special interest groups that you can join and network directly with other like minded or like interest individuals

4. Register a custom URL (web address) for your Facebook page, think of it like a personalized license plate. You or your web designer can set this up through a domain registration service like Godaddy.com. The benefit of offering this short cut? It allows you branding capability for your business and makes it easier for visitors to find you.  If you'd like to see an example in action you can send me a friends request at RodneyonFacebook.info

Follow Up With Twitter - Twitter is another social networking site that took me a while to get. Quite honestly I'm still learning more about Twitter and it's potential influence on my online marketing efforts.  Basically Twitter is a "micro blog" where your text posts are limited to 140 characters. Now I realize that 140 characters doesn't seem like much but think of this way, when you're limited to how much you can say you'll find yourself getting to the point quickly. 

When you 'Tweet' (their term not mine) you share a quick post about your current activities.  So for example, if you teach photography workshops you can tweet about that, if you've just published an article to your blog or in print you can tweet about that and create an html link to the direct location where your content is stored. 

Don't underestimate the power of Twitter, I'm already realizing the impact of this powerful site. You can follow me on Twitter by visiting the site and entering my screen name in the 'search for' RodWashington to follow my efforts as I connect with photographers, artists & other business professionals globally.

3 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Twitter:

1. Post frequently. Twitter's true power comes from the frequency of your communication. Basically the more you Tweet, the more the prospects you'll connect with.

2. Tie your Twitter feed to your Facebook account. Within Facebook you can have your Twitter posts display on your Facebook page without you having to log in manually to add your posts. 

3. Tweet back. When you receive a new follow (another term for someone subscribing to your feed) send a short message in return. It's essentially the same as replying to an email. Whether online or off it's all about forming and maintaining relationships.

Remember no matter what you think of social networking, marketing your photography services online is fast becoming one of the most effective as well extremely affordable methods of prospecting and establishing new contacts.  In addition if you tie your offline with your online marketing efforts your reach will grow even larger and become more effective.
