Your roadmap to success

My aha moment with the idea of balance and "working smarter" started with The Rising Tide Society. I quickly realized that creative entrepreneurs were in serious need of a way to find work-life balance. So that not only could they find more time for their relationships and other passions, but that they would be able to remember and enjoy why they started their businesses in the first place.  

I'm so glad you're here!

Communication with your clients doesn’t end when the wedding is over. This is the time you need to really wow them with your organization and delivery. Educate your clients on what to expect with the delivery of images, coach them through ordering products and finalizing their album (and offer new products or collection upgrades to them), share galleries with vendors and leave the entire wedding team talking about you.

This collection of 16 emails for the post production portion of your wedding photographer business will save you TONS of time and have your clients raving about you, vendors talking about you, and will make you feel like you’ve got it all together! ;)

One of the best ways to build a business is to connect with your clients on a personal level. I do this in my wedding photography business by sending a relationship questionnaire. This questionnaire covers everything from:

General Info
Questions about their relationship
Questions for the Bride
Questions for the Groom
Questions as a couple
Questions for their engagement session 
And more.

Once you have this information- writing blog posts and social media posts that actually CONNECT with an audience will be a breeze.

Ever get home from a wedding and realize that you forgot to take a shot of the Bride with her Grandmother? Or a shot with all her siblings? Coming up with the entire family shot list can be daunting. Especially when there’s a ton of siblings, spouses, nieces, nephews and grandparents to include. This shot list covers every combination of family formals you could possibly have and is provided in a PDF and a Word document so you can quickly input your couple’s family members names into the appropriate place. This will enable you to be done with the shot list in a matter of minutes. Wow your couples by doing this for them and then send it to them for review so it’s one less thing they need to think about. This has blown away my clients again and again.

You’ve just booked another wedding! Yay! Now it’s time to jump right in and start planning everything for their big day. The timeline questionnaire is a great starting point for gathering preliminary information from your couples about their wedding day. This questionnaire includes questions about ALL the basics. It covers everything from the first look through the reception. By sending this questionnaire, you will be able to start building a basic preliminary timeline for your couple so they can use it as a basis for planning the schedule of events with their other vendors. This will be fleshed out in more detail once you send and receive their Wedding Day Questionnaire, but this will give you the info you need to create a skeleton early in the process (before hitting the snag of not enough time for pictures if you wait too long to create this!)

The wedding planning process is overwhelming, involved, and fueled with emotion. You are one of the trusted professionals that the couple is counting on to make their day perfect. As the wedding photographer, I strive to guide them through the entire process from inquiry to engagement session planning to directing family formals to delivering the final gallery. 

You can educate them through a series on your blog, through email if you have a newsletter list, through a guide branded for your company. Your knowledge is SO vast in this field, so it’s your job to help them through it! These client education emails include everything from the pros and cons of a first look to what to pack the night before the wedding to what to wear for your engagement session. 

This bundle of emails will create less work for you answering emails, make your clients feel comfortable and confident in you, and best of all it will take your client experience to the next level. 

Include: 15 Email Templates for Client Education

When I first started my photography business, one of the biggest mistakes I made was not having emails templates. I spent too many hours going into my sent box, searching for emails I sent to past clients, copying and pasting them, and then tweaking them for the client I was emailing. I was wasting HOURS a year with this process until I created email templates! 
Email templates will not only save you HOURS in your photography workflow but they will also allow you to provide a consistent client experience, every time. Using email templates will give you more freedom from your inbox and more time to focus on other important parts of your photography business. 

The Portrait Email Templates bundle includes 27 email templates for everything from inquiry to gallery delivery to a final thank you to your clients.  

What's inside:
-Inquiry Template
-Follow up Templates

The engagement session is such a special session for every one of my couples. It is a session all about them – without the distraction of other guests or wedding day duties to attend to. Asking your couples’ these questions before planning their engagement session will not only make the session run smoothly but it will also give them the chance to personalize the session and make it special to who they are as a couple. 

The engagement session questionnaire has all the questions you need to collect to help plan the perfect engagement session for them! It includes questions about the season the couple would like to have their session, whether or not they will be using these photos for save the dates, and special props (or furry friends) they want to include in the session, and so much more that your couples probably haven't even thought about that will make the session so much easier for you!

As the wedding photographer, it is critical that you participate in the process of creating and solidifying the timeline for each wedding day. By creating a detailed wedding day timeline, you will be able to coordinate with the couple, their families, and their other vendors to ensure that everything runs smoothly throughout the day. 

This questionnaire includes all the information you need to know about venue addresses, family member names/relationship to the couple, names and contact information for everyone in the wedding party, ceremony details, reception details, portraits and so much more. The Wedding Day Questionnaire is by far one of the most important pieces of my wedding photography workflow and is sure to put you and your clients at ease for their big day!
