You might have in your contract that the photos will be ready within 8 weeks. However, the quicker you can get the photos edited and delivered to your couple the happier they will be.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Your pictures are worth thousands of Money. Once you have delivered your photos to the couple and they absolutely love them. Ask them if they know anyone else who is getting married and have they booked a photographer yet.
It is a great tool to increase referrals from couples as they sit down and show their wedding album to family and friends.
Referrals are a great way to acquire bookings as their friends have often seen you working at the wedding. They also then get to see the end result in the form of wedding photographs.
A great way to keep your couple happy after the wedding is to send them a few preview images.
