Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?

I have never chased awards and don’t feel they would make me a better photographer. Success for me is happy couples. We always under promise and over deliver. Many of my bookings come from recommendations and from wedding guests who have seen how we work first hand. Mistakes? Probably just one, and it’s spending too much money on new equipment.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?

I think the 3 most important things are, do they like the photographers style, do they find the photographer easy to get along with and is the photographer within their budget. Avoid choosing your photographer based solely on price, or if there are lots included in the package.

How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?

For the last couple of years we’ve spent nothing on advertising. All our work comes from word of mouth or couple finding us on the internet or via social media.

The weather was very changeable on the day with sun one minute and rain the next. I especially like this image as it show’s rain does not have to spoil your wedding day, we can work with it.
