13 Reasons why you need a wedding photography website

In a world where technology is constantly evolving, it’s more important than ever for photographers to have an online presence. Here are some of the top reasons why every wedding photographer needs their own website:

1. A website gives you a professional platform to showcase your work.

A website gives you a central location for all of your work to be showcased. A place where it’s not competing with millions of other content creators for the user’s attention. This space is dedicated to you, to be authentic with your visitor.

2. A website makes it easy for potential clients to contact you.

With all of the different social media, it can be easy to lose messages, DMS, not see comments. Your website is a central place where visitors can contact you. Streamlining your client communication will be less overwhelming, save you tons of time in your business, make sure you’re not missing messages and will look more professional.

3. A wedding photography website helps you stand out from the competition.

Your website is an opportunity to make your brand shine. Show your clients why you’re worth every penny they are going to spend with you. A well designed website, that delivers a clear message, your authentic story brand and a unique brand will help you stand our from your competition.

4. Gives you an opportunity to share your story brand.

Your website is the storefront for your online presence, and a perfect place to share your brand story. Tell them what is unique about your brand, process, experience, and what makes you stand out and me unique.  It’s a place where you know 100% of your visitors can get to know you if they are on your website. (Not just the 2% on social media).

5. It’s a platform you own & has full control over

Unlike social media you own your website. Social media is a borrowed platform, at any time you can be banned, hacked, the platform can move to a paid subscription or just disappear; and you would have zero control over what happened. On your website you have full control of what you show you audience, what order they see it in. You have full control.

6. You can invite people to join your community

Your website is a great place to invite your audience to be part of your community (mailing list). You can offer as many freebies, tutorials, and offers as you like in exchange for your visitor’s email address. You can build a list and control the flow of information from your business to their inbox.

7. You can create pages to fit your brand better

With your own website, you can pick the design and pages you need. Whether you need a shop, a portfolio, a client experience or pricing guide page. The sky is the limit when you have your own wedding photography website.

8. Build a store

Since you have full control over your website you can add different functionality to it, like an eComm store. Sell digital products, filters, prints, whatever you like.

9. Promote your services

Your wedding photography website is the perfect place to promote your services because you know the visitors that are on your website are warm leads. They want to learn more about what you have to offer, they want to know how they can work with you. So building a results-driven website will help you gain more success in your business.

10. Create affiliate link pages

If you have affiliate links, you can build a page to promote each of those affiliate programs. With proper SEO you don’t have to do much to get a steady stream of income from affiliate programs.

11. Build Credibility with a wedding photography website

When your clients see that you’re willing to invest in yourself, they are willing to invest in you. A website shows your audience that you are a professional and legit business building credibility.

12. Another way for clients to find you is with SEO to your website

Lots of clients use Google to look for services and products online. A website with good SEO will show up on search result pages giving you an opportunity to be found online in a new way.

13. Have a home base for your content.

Whether you have a blog, podcast, or create video content. When you have a website, you have a central place for your content. You can then repurpose the content you create for your website to other social channels.

What Features Should Your Wedding Photography Website Offer?

  • A clean, modern design: First impressions matter and you want your website to make a good one. Keep the design of your site clean and simple, with plenty of whitespace and easy navigation.
  • High-quality images: Of course, as a photographer, you’ll want to showcase your best work on your site. Make sure to only use good images that are compressed properly so they load quickly; no one wants to wait around for slow-loading pages.
  • Informative content: In addition to pretty pictures, potential clients will want to know more about you and your business. Write engaging copy that tells visitors what you do, how you do it, and why they should hire you.
  • An easy way to contact you: You want people to know who you are, what you do, where you do it and how to contact you to buy. So make sure you have a clear way for visitors to contact you.

Having a website can be a great way to increase visibility and build your business, giving you the ability to reach more people and get more bookings. With all these benefits in mind, it is no wonder that so many wedding photographers are taking advantage of this wonderful tool for success!
