Wedding Photographers; when do you get your most inquiries.
« on: February 16, 2015, 03:26:50 PM »
I was thinking about throwing some additional advertising dollars at Google and then I wondered if there would be a certain time of year that would be better than others to do so. So I started going through my inbox from last year to see if there was a pattern of when there was an uptick in interest. Obviously, summer is more popular time to get married here in Chicago, but just how far out are those brides/grooms reaching out? I did a screen cap of the past 6 months of e-mails coming in from my  wedding photography website.

My list actually seemed pretty consistent - didn't know if anyone else had similar findings?

Thanks for these important tips!! You know I am also a newbie event photographer so these tips would be very beneficial to have a successful career. Well, I will attend a birthday party project which I have to cover at the best sweet 16 venues nyc. I am glad that I got such a grand birthday project!

The bulk of all mine are booked Nov-March for early spring-summer. Although I just shot 4 in the  last month and half...a real rarity but it's never really winter here in California. This year's El Nino will be interesting though as I wonder how far into spring (if it really comes) the rain will be a factor. Might be time to dust off  the rain gear for everything ;)
