Crazy Wedding Photographers - extended version
There are several wedding photography buzz words that many wedding photographers seem use on their websites to describe their style. Unobtrusive, relaxed, observational, documentary and reportage to name a few but all leading to the idea that you won’t really notice the photographer is there. They will be discreet and when you receive your wedding album you will be amazed at the many candid moments they have captured with you not really noticing. A great documentary wedding photographer will capture the essence of your day and tell your wedding story in an artistic and sympathetic way. And then there is this...
Good morning top professional wedding photographers.
Hope you are all well and you're now started on what should be a very busy UK wedding season. Nevermind the weather. This is just a short post to let you know we've made a few small changes to the site.
You can now add a link to your Pinterest page on your listings. If you've not heard of Pinterest it's a cool social networking site which is great for wedding photographers. You can create pinboards of your favourite wedding images and these can be shared or re-pinned by other users.
Pinterest has become really popular with wedding professionals as it's a brilliant way of sharing wedding inspiration. You can find us on Pinterest here.
We've also added a new brochure/price list download feature. You can now upload a PDF document to Find a Wedding Photographer which can be downloaded by brides directly from your listing. Just log and edit your listing to upload your PDF document.
We're working on many more new features to make sure Find a Wedding Photographer remains the best wedding photography resource around.
Regrets I have few…Wedding Survey
Our trendy wedding bloggers Sam and Emily, aka the dirtyweddingcows, have just completed a massive survey of married couples via their Facebook page and they are just working through the results now. With their work rate their findings should be published sometime in 2015!
Anyway, some of the details we have seen may be of interest to wedding photographers and couples about to book their wedding photography for weddings in 2013.
One of the questions concerned how much recently married couples had spent on their wedding photography and [un] surprisingly 70% of respondents said they regretted trying to save money on their wedding photographer.
Now it doesn’t say how much more they wish they’d spent. They might be wishing they’d spent an additional £5 for all we know but it is quite obvious that most couples these days try and save a bit of money on things like wedding photography and maybe live to regret it.
This is our totally scientific analysis of the results but all we’d say is make sure you’re not in the 70% and book a lovely top professional photographer for your wedding - it could be the best money you spend on your big day.
Wow - what a month January has been for Find a Wedding Photographer. As you may be aware we completely redesigned and rebuilt the site in November and added loads of new features, like videos to the listings and our new wedding photography Hot Shots section. Behind the scenes we re-optimised all the pages and sections and last week we completed the work my moving to a new faster server.
Consequently we’ve had more traffic than ever as we entered out 10th year online. Some of our photographers have advertised with us since the beginning and have renewed every year - I guess we must be doing something right.
