When I first started my wedding photography business, I was a hot mess express! I was sending paper contracts in the mail, clients would mail me checks, and I had so much paper to keep up with. It was a nightmare! Then I discovered the beauty of workflows for my wedding photography business, and my life was forever changed. I would book client’s more quickly because I had seamless process for it, everything was organized and in one place. It was marvelous! So today, I’m sharing 3 things your wedding photography workflow needs for a successful business!
1. YOU NEED A CRM
If you’re like I was several years ago, you may be asking “What’s a CRM?” It’s a client relationship manager, and it will change your life for the better! I personally use Honeybook, and I LOVE IT! Honeybook allows me to digitally send all my contracts, invoices, proposals, and more. All of my client communication is saved in their portal so I don’t have to go hunt down emails because they’re all in one place! The best part is I’m able to automate several aspects of my workflow which saves me time!

2. DETAILED QUESTIONNAIRES
By sending my couples detailed questionnaires upon booking, it really helps to free up a lot of time that would be otherwise spent emailing back and forth trying to plan out their engagement session or wedding. By sending them a detailed questionnaire, I’m able to gather all the information I need to get their experience with me started off on the right foot in an efficient way! These questionnaires really help me to be well prepared for my couple’s engagement session and wedding which in turn leads to a better client experience overall!
3. AUTOMATED EMAILS
This is one of the most HELPFUL things that Honeybook does for us in our business. Throughout the wedding planning process I send my couples automated emails filled with vendor recommendations I also send tips to help prepare for the engagement session and wedding day. Having automated emails has given me back so much time in my business that I can use to actually grow my business
I hope seeing these things your workflow needs will help motivate you to create your first workflow if you don’t have one in your business! Having one will really take your client experience to the next level and make your couple’s feel great about their investment with you!
Don’t forget to take advantage of your Honeybook savings so that you can automate your workflow!
