Many businesses associated with weddings probably have a list of other services that they recommend to their clients. Florists, car services, makeup artists, tailors – the amount of businesses who deal with even a single wedding are endless! We give our own clients “Studiomax Loves and Recommends” list as we know everyone on that list will treat our clients with respect and incredible service. These companies gave us a good impression and were a positive experience – so to get onto their recommendation lists, you must simply reverse that and give them a reason to believe you’re the best possible photographer for their clients.
Visit reception centres just out of courtesy, call your favourite celebrant for a chat, send car companies or florists images from a wedding they were involved with and generally get as creative as you like! EVERYONE likes to feel appreciated. In the future, when these businesses are asked to recommend a great wedding photographer, you’ll be fresh in their minds and have only positive things to say about you. It’s all about that word of mouth.
