Growing your wedding photography business can definitely have its challenges. It may leave you feeling zapped, frustrated and may be even wanting to call it quits.

So this post is all about awesome marketing ideas for wedding photographers! (If you want some help defining your ideal client check this out)
I first want to address this! I’m not sure why my posts to photographers always begin with disclaimers haha, but here I am 🙂 I’m going to tell you, don’t ever approach this marketing effort expecting anything. I want you to be genuinely interested. I want you to view it as creating community and finding ways to serve others. Doing this genuinely and without the attitude of expectation will serve you so much better. Being genuine and serving others always gives back 10x more than being just out for number one. It will also alleviate any frustration for any efforts that aren’t producing immediate results. Because growth takes time. So give it time. Be consistent. Be genuine. Don’t give up.
Ok are ya ready for today’s meat?! So, these marketing ideas are all about networking with other vendors in the area to grow your wedding photography business! What’s better than you telling the world about your business? Having others in the industry tell the world too! PLUS I’m going to give you ideas on how to network with both vendors you have worked with and vendors you have not worked with! Hold on to your hats, here we go:
