#weddingphotographer friends, do you ever feel flustered during bride phone consultations or in-person meetings?? If you are anything like l was, consultations can be stressful! We are sharing exactly how we walk through our bridal consultations on the blog (link in profile) + a FREE consultation worksheet for you to start using in your business ASAP! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2012, I remember actually sweating any time a bride wanted to chat over the phone. I’m even a “phone person y'all! I love chatting on the phone but in the beginning, I always let the nerves get the best of me. I’d ask tons of personal questions getting to know them and their love story. Then I’d get off the phone and realize I forgot so many important details. Not to mention, it felt like I didn’t take a breath the whole 30 minutes we were on the phone! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I finally got sick of the stress and nerves of inquiries and realized I needed a plan! I created a template that we use for every single bride phone call or in-person meeting and I'm so excited to share it with y'all along with our 5 steps to successful bride consultations! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Step 1: Ask, Listen and Connect. Take this time, your first impression with this new client, and truly ask them questions to get them excited about their wedding (or session). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Step 2: Asking the Right Questions. What are your wedding colors? Do you want to do a “first look?” Get to know your bride and groom so you can serve them as best as possible! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Step 3: Share Your Process. Once you’ve connected, then you can start talking about YOU! Explain what it’s like to work with you. What are your processes? Set expectations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Continue reading on the blog (link in profile) for the last 2 steps and our free consultation worksheet! Here’s to successful consultations and lots of fun 2020 weddings, y'all!
In case you missed the announcement a few months ago or the GIANT bump I seem to be rockin' these days (#2ndbaby), we are expecting baby #2 on January 1st, 2020! 🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They say God won’t give you more than you can handle but I’m pretty sure He’s sitting up there laughing. He is certainly testing the limits with us right now. ;) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So what do y'all think we are having?? Take a guess and then head to the blog (link in profile) to see our little sugar cookie gender reveal! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Plus, if you look hard enough, you'll find his/her name! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ XO 📸: @alyssareneemade ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thesweetlifeunscripted #throughachildseyes #childrenseemagic #fearlessandframed #motherhoodunplugged #kindredmemories #littlestoriesofmylife #momentsinmotherhood #motherhood #uniteinmotherhood #momlife #mybeautifulmess #abmthelittlethings #momtogs #girlmom #ourcandidlife #simplymamahood #ohheymama #seeksimplicity #darlingmovement #honestmotherhood #letthembelittle #mytinymoments
Oh my heart! Kinsey’s 1st day of Mother’s Day Out was yesterday! 🙈💕 And boy was she ready! Full of excitement, she never looked back! We got out of there with no tears shed by any of us, which is a true miracle because I thought for sure I’d be a mess! 🥴 Momma friends, how did it go for you??? I was so excited to pick her up and hear that she had the best day! She didn’t even want to leave when I picked her up😝 💕 #ourkinseygirl
One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive during wedding season is “Soooo, what do you do if it RAINS?!”🤷🏼♀️ . We want to reassure you that even if it rains, you will still have beautiful portraits & BRIGHT colors in your photos! 🙌🏻Overcast skies mean vibrant colors!✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . We know that rain isn’t ideal but if it happens, it happens...and it’s going to be JUST fine!! Some of our best weddings have been on rainy wedding days...like Holly & Austin's right here! 😍 . It poured during Holly & Austin’s ceremony, like, DOWNPOURED y’all! They didn’t freak out or stress. Instead, they laughed and smiled the whole time handling it all with such grace! Everyone was soaked, but following the bride’s lead, everyone loved it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s things like this that really make your wedding so unique! 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bridalbabetips #cottoncouplesinlove . . . . . . #engaged #cottonweddings #cottoncouplesinlove #weddingphotographer #houstonwedding #weddingsinhouston #bridesofhouston #houstonweddingphotography #wedding #bridetobe #bride #isaidyes #houstonweddingphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #destinationwedding #destinationweddingphotographer #texaswedding #bridalportrait #bridalstyle #stylemepretty #romanticwedding #wedding #theknot #gettingmarried #goingtothechapel #weddingwire #thatauthenticfeeling
