IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE
Before you start building your wedding portfolio, you need to identify your target audience.
- Who do you want to cover in your photographs?
- Who are you trying to reach out to?
- Who is your target audience?
Knowing the answers to these questions will help you determine your reason for creating the right portfolio. Moreover, the answers can also help you identify the style, tone, and content that your desired portfolio should have.
Approaching or connecting with other vendors in the wedding industry can not only boost your portfolio but can also help get you additional work. Networking is exceptionally beneficial in the creative industry, as many opportunities come from word of mouth connections.
Finding such vendors in your locale will also eventually put you on their list of go-to” photographers when clients ask for recommendations or when other opportunities arise. If you are an outgoing person, consider attending workshops or other wedding-related events where you could build relationships with the people of the wedding industry.
To have a great portfolio, you must have great images. That means practice, practice, practice!
You will only develop a promising body of work if you go out and shoot. If you are getting into wedding photography, you may offer up some free or cheap photoshoots for people you know until you land some great shots.
Once you have a bunch of photographs, you may sit back and select some of the best clicks. Selecting the right images for your wedding portfolio part is likely to be the most time-consuming step of all, and that’s okay.
It’s crucial to take your time in such a setting. Offering a variety of different styles and scenes will not only demonstrate the depth of your proficiency but will also help your clients stay interested and involved with your work.
