⚡ NOW BOOKING 2023-24 WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS
Next for the Photographer Series are Guides for Photographers to level up your client experience. Do you send questionnaires to your clients? Do you feel confident in the Timeline of a Wedding or Elopement Day? Would you like to learn how to create a GIF for your client galleries? Are you stuck on how to respond to some awkward photography questions. DING, DING- You are in the right place.
What I see a lot of photographers struggle with is questionnaires and what in the world to ask. Questionnaires are sets of questions designed to capture all the info you need for each client. They also provide clients with more details about what to expect and how to prepare.
Sure, you can create new questions to send to each client, but that will take FOREVER! Using a wedding questionnaire template for each of my clients has improved my business so much and client experience.
To help with this, I’ve created several wedding templates (questionnaires) that I sell in my Etsy shop – I’d love for you to check them out. To help you get started, here’s everything you need to know about using these guides for photographers to press the fast forward button and level up your client experience.
Really, questionnaires are a no-brainer! I couldn’t run my business without them, seriously.
For one, they help me get to know my clients in so much detail (finding out their likes, interests, photography requests, etc.), which allows me to deliver a more professional and rewarding client experience. Using the info I get from templates always means my clients are happier with their photos, which is my main goal.
These questionnaire also help you guide your clients. Many people are uneasy about being photographed. They don’t know what to expect, so they look to you, as their photographer, for planning and guidance. Your templates will honestly be a lifesaver in helping your clients prepare for their shoot, which makes things easier for you and them.
Of course, these questionnaires can be used over and over again, which saves you SO MUCH TIME!
These guide I create at nearly 3-4 in the morning when I get away from editing or other busy tasks. They’re completely a labor of love and I think I’ve got them nearly perfect! So which one should you purchase first? Tap into your pain points. Do you struggle with Timelines? I suggest looking into Timeline 101. Need to revamp those questionnaires; My Get to Know and Final Questionnaire are ready for you.
Want to dive in a bit deeper on each guide? Here’s a bit of info about each template and how it can help you go NEXT LEVEL with your career!
My Get to Know Questionnaire Template is what I send out to every new couple to find out more about them before we work together. I realized that coming up with questions that would capture the info I needed was taking forever, so this template is a lifesaver!
You can use it for weddings, engagements, and even elopements, as planning a dream elopement can take a lot of time (especially if your client wants you to travel to their destination).
Managing timelines during a wedding can be so hard – I know you just want to take beautiful pictures, but your clients are also counting on you to capture every gorgeous moment of their day without causing them to run late.
So how do you know how much time to allocate for getting ready shots, couples’ portraits, or family photos? Don’t stress – I’ve shared all of this information in my Timeline 101 guide. Wedding timeline templates will help you feel more confident in taking control and helping your lovely couples plan out their day.
So you’ve gotten to know your clients already, but what additional details do you need from them before the big day? Answer – A LOT! Your couples are probably a bundle of nerves leading up to their wedding, but you don’t want to feel the same, so help yourself prepare with this template.
I designed my Final Questionnaire guide to help you find out everything you need to know to plan ahead for the wedding, ensuring you capture each kiss, smile, and moment of happiness that’s most important to your clients.
Most (OK, probably all) photographers are into Instagram – we love sharing our photos, and it’s a great marketing tool. But did you know that Insta, and other socials, actually favor video?
That’s why I started making GIFs to share on my accounts – short videos that are fun to watch. They’ve done really well for me, so I’ve created a GIF Guide cheat sheet explaining how you can make your own GIFs super easily, without spending hours on Adobe.
Throughout your photography journey you are bound to come across those awkward questions. Think of things like;
Oh I so get it and it’s so normal. This side of running a photography business isn’t nearly as talked about for obvious reasons. Who really wants to bring up the negative side. Not a lot of people. That’s why I have the Perfect Email Reponses for you to cut out the awkward and cut straight to the point. This concludes the Photographer Series of Guides for Photographers to level up your client experience. Read some reviews up next!
If you’ve already purchased one of my templates, I cannot thank you enough and seriously wish I could give you a giant hug! Over 700 photographers all around the world have a guide of mine and that truly blows my mind.
Your support means the world to me, but I also want to see you succeed, and I know that these templates can help both beginner and experienced wedding photographers. Even if you’re just thinking about how to become a photographer, these guides are packed with info and tips to help out those that are newer to the photography scene.
If you’re on the fence about buying, I’m really proud to have so many positive comments from other photographers who’ve bought and used my templates!
