Hi friends! Today I want to talk about a wonderful tool that really helps photographers like me sync with potential clients like you. It’s free, it’s easy to use, it’s fun to browse, and it helps us align on a vision for your wedding photography long before your big day arrives. That’s right — I’m talking about Pinterest!
I bet you’re already using Pinterest to gather visual inspiration for your wedding, from your dress to your bridal party’s style to your florals to your cake design. But the value of Pinterest reaches beyond inspiration! It’s an amazing space to simply curate images that you love and consider the artistry involved in capturing those images.
Building Your Pinterest Board
As we begin to work together, I encourage you to take a little time, maybe on a slower weekend morning, to sit back with a cup of coffee or mug of tea and gather a collection of images that speak to you in some way. They don’t even have to pertain to weddings at all! This board can feature things like:
- Your favorite colors and tones
- A lighting style that really speaks to you
- Your preferred natural settings
- Expressions of other couples you’d love to capture of you and your partner
- Framing that makes you think, “Wow!”
- An editing technique that makes you say, “Oh, I love that…”
- And pretty much anything else you want!
Virtually, any image that piques your interest — even if you aren’t 100% sure why it does so — can belong on this board. This thoughtfully crafted collection gives me a glimpse inside your mind and helps me understand what really speaks to you. And, as a professional photographer, I can use that information to make sure the art we create together on your wedding day transforms your dreams into reality successfully.
How many images should you collect? The sky’s the limit, really! As long as you can look at your board and say, “Yep, this is me and what I love in a nutshell,” then you’ve done an excellent job in giving me what I need to support you. I can’t wait to see the magic we’ll create for you!
