Become a Top Wedding Planner – Did You Plan All of the Weddings in Your Website Photo Gallery?


I was working with a new wedding planner recently and she asked me to take a look at her website. For someone new, I thought she had a very impressive gallery of wedding photos. Then I realized I had seen many of them before, on stock photo sites. She pointed out that she didn’t state that the photos were from weddings she had planned, it was just a wedding photo gallery. She knew she could plan weddings that looked like the ones in the photos.

True, she hadn’t said she had planned those weddings. But by putting the photos on her site in her gallery, brides will believe that she had planned those weddings. When they speak to her and find out the wedding photos are just stock photos, they may believe she is trying to mislead them and probably not hire her.

She is not the first wedding planner who I’ve seen do this. In fact, even worse, some experienced planners have told me that new planners get photos from their websites and claim them as their own.

When you start out, you are not going to have the same photo gallery as someone who has been in the business a long time. That’s ok, just start with the photos of weddings you have planned and keep taking photos, or purchase them from the photographers of the weddings that you plan, and gradually add more. Never be dishonest or mislead brides. If you do, you could be out of business in a very short time.
