Become a Top Wedding Planner – 3 Tips for Selecting Photos for Your Website


I recently wrote a blog post about website photo galleries. A wedding planner wrote asking how to select photos.

Here are 3 things to consider when filling your photo gallery:

1) The photos must look professional

You might be able to use the professional photographs that were taken at the wedding. Talk to the photographer to see if you can feature the photographs if you give them credit on your site. You will want to let the bride and groom know that you are using their images also.

If you plan to use photographs that you took, make sure they are professional quality which means crisp, clear, with the subjects well framed and, your photos should not have a date stamp. If your photos look amaturish, the brides will believe your wedding planning services are also.

2) The brides and grooms should look happy

I once saw a wedding planner’s website which featured brides and grooms but they were all cut off at the neck – no heads. The brides coming to your site need to see couples who are happy and having fun so they understand that brides are relaxed and stress free when they hire you as their wedding planner.

3) The details in your photographs should appeal to the brides in your niche

Your photos should highlight the elements that would appeal to the brides in your niche. For example, if your targeted brides want eco-friendly weddings, you should not have the photographs of tabletops of cut flowers and disposable wedding favors that you helped design before you decided to specialize in eco-friendly events.  

The bottom line, you need the brides in your niche to look your photo gallery and think,”I want my wedding to look like that. I want to be a happy bride in the photo gallery. I need to hire this wedding planner.”
