Blog Tips for a Wedding Photographer

Keep tittle or header short and simple

photography blogIf it is your first time to go ahead and write a blog as a wedding photographer, there are just a few basic things that you need to think about when you are in the process of writing it. You will usually start off with the title or with the header. This is something that you will need to keep simple and short as much as possible. Your goal is for people to easily find it and to easily look up searches or it at the end of it all. What is usually advisable is for you to put in the first names of the couple, the day of the wedding, the name of the venue, and then the actual location that the wedding was held in. That way, when people try to hit up searches about the venue or location, they will be led right into your blog. At the same time, when the couple or when friends of the couple try to look up your blog, all that they need to do is to just try to look up their first names or even the date of the wedding and they will be lead right through your blog as a wedding photographer. Stick to the simple formula. It’s a bit of a no brainer but it is something that has been tested to work and to be effective time and time again. You do not need to be original and interesting when it comes to the title. You can save all of that for later.

Try a sentence at a time

Although writing may be a bit of a weakness for you or although it may be considered as something that you aren’t really all that excited to work out at the end of the day, the fact remains that it is something that you will have to do or deal with no matter what. The trick there is to not bite off way more than you can chew. Try to do things a sentence at a time. Then try to pull it off a paragraph at a time. You will eventually notice that this is something that you will get the hang of and it can really quite easily grow on you especially if it is something that you tend to practice again and again and especially if it is something that you really put your mind into at the end of the day. When you come to think about it, no one was born into this world knowing how to write. It is a skill that people get to learn over time. The more time you spend trying to get it done, the easier it will be for you. Of course, you always have the option to outsource it if that’s what you would like to do but then again while you are starting out, it might be a good idea to try and see for yourself if it is something that you can pull off solo at first, especially when you don’t really have that much money to begin with.

Work on the way that you lay out your images.

It should be engaging and interesting to look at. This means that the sizes of the images should vary greatly and it means that it should not be all the same as well. Not all images deserve to be posted in full size all of the time. It will make your image layout landscape look monotonous and boring. Try to check out how the other wedding photographers are doing it in their blogs or try to observe how the professional magazines are getting it done and then move on from there.
