Hi wedding photographers! I hope your seasons are going well and you’re creating great work that you can be proud of. I’m headed into August – which is my busiest wedding month of the year, most years and this year is no exception! Seven weddings this month – including three in one weekend. (Gah! I will survive! And thrive!)
Keeping to a schedule and creating a positive experience for my clients are two of my biggest priorities on the wedding day. But what can you do when the wedding is falling behind? And how do you talk about the “awkward” subject of money?
On my YouTube channel today, I’m discussing “How to Handle Weddings That Run Late!”
1. Set appropriate expectations from the start with your brides and grooms. Discuss in the initial client consultation the ability to add extra hours of coverage onto the collection fee a la carte. Be upfront about this fee and allow your clients to customize the collection anytime during booking to add hours as they see fit.
