Styled shoots can be amazing! They are lots of hard work and planning, but the images you will have will be worth their weight in gold! If you are a photographer, florist, invitation company, stylist or just about any other vendor associated with weddings, this may be something that will be so beneficial for your business!
For photographers, especially newer ones in the business, it can take awhile to build a substantial portfolio. If you are on social media, especially Instagram, then you know that you need lots of new content to keep your followers interested, am I right? For your website, here is another area that needs so much content for you to blog about, post images to make sure that your website is as pretty as a peach! Doing a styled shoot is just the answer.
Making contacts in this industry is vitally important to all of us. If you are not connected to any other vendors, start reaching out by looking for local organizations that cater to creatives. The Rising Tide Society is one that is super amazing. This is where you can make some great contacts.
When finally planning your styled shoot, start by finding a venue that will host your styled shoot, hopefully for free with the promise that they will have some great images for their own needs. Once that is secure, a sweet couple is vitally important to make for some awesome images. Start asking your friends if they would love to have some fun and at the same time, walk away with some fun and pretty images. The florals to any styled shoot are always key in creating fantastic pictures.
Once all of your vendors are secure, don’t forget the bridal gown, suit, jewelry, hair and makeup, shoes and fun decor to style your shoot with. And of course, an amazing cake is always for the win.
You will have so much fun doing this, you will forget that this was a day’s work! Happy styling!
