Wedding Photography After Sales
Upsells For Wedding Photographers
Your wedding photography after sales can sometimes earn you as much, if not more than your original quote for the days wedding photography. Done right, you can capture those extra, lucrative sales from friends and family of the couple. That is despite the fact that the world and his wife have a digital camera at weddings these days.
Personally, I prefer to add a little to the cost of shooting the wedding and hand over the finished images. Either on a DVD/Memory stick/Cloud download with all images at high resolution for the wedding couple. This saves time with the hassle of printing, posting and emailing details etc. It also leaves me more time to crack on and get more work in or get on with what I have.
Of course, that is just me. For many professional wedding photographers, the wedding photography after sales can be the best bit. I must say I once shot a €200 portrait sitting and ended up getting over €3,000 in after sales prints and canvasses so it is worthwhile.
Getting the orders in
In order to get your orders and wedding photography after sales, here are a few tips:
As a final thought why not try this…
Get yourself a high end digital photo projector, make up a slideshow of all images, (including any extra ones that you have creatively worked on) and organise a slideshow.
Either get the couple to host it and invite as many of the close family and Bridal Party as possible. Or host it yourself and hand out invites at the wedding?
Make an afternoon of it and watch the wedding photography after sales come in. When people see big images they want them big. Take along a large sample canvas print as well as other samples for them to see and watch the sales roll in.
