Some wedding photographers are brilliant. Some bowl me over with their gorgeous images, their empathy, their signature styles. And (shhh) I have favourites. Sounds a little unfair, unprofessional even, doesn’t it?
Bear with me. 😉
Why do wedding photographers submit to blogs?
An easy question. For free promotion of their work to a huge readership. Top reason.
Also – for their brides and grooms. If you’d like to have your wedding featured on a blog, mention it to your photographer! They’re lovely people, and if you’ve found your photographer on a wedding blog it’s more than likely they’ll be happy to submit your wedding!
There’s another reason, and this is the one I like best of all: to build business friendships.
Photographers and wedding bloggers – a match made in…
Fair to say there’s a bit of a love / hate relationship between wedding bloggers and photographers, right? We know each other well. Photographers have a lot of contact with wedding bloggers via submissions, sponsorship and so on.
