Why build your portfolio with Zenfolio?

Frequently asked questions.

Your portfolio website should reflect your unique wedding photography style and personality. This can be done by picking a design that complements your brand, choosing images that showcase your style, and writing compelling copy that explains your approach and is search engine optimized. Create an FAQ page or blog post to share additional details about your approach. Your About Me page is another great place to give visitors a sense of who you are as a photographer.

To appeal to a diverse range of clients, it’s important to showcase a variety of wedding photography examples on your portfolio website. For example, use candid shots as well as more posed and formal ones! You can also organize your images into galleries highlighting various aspects of your work, such as separate galleries for traditional weddings and elopements. This will clearly show prospective clients that you have worked in a variety of settings and can adapt to different styles.

Create a separate page or section on your portfolio website to organize and present your wedding photography packages and pricing information. Make it clear what is included in each package and what the pricing entails. Consider offering customizable packages to meet the needs of different clients.

On your portfolio website, organize your images into a narrative that reflects the evolution of the wedding day to show your ability to tell a story through your wedding photography. Captions and descriptions should be used to give context and highlight key moments. Include a blog section where you can share stories and behind-the-scenes information and details that can’t be conveyed through images.

Create a separate page or section on your wedding portfolio website to highlight client testimonials and reviews. Show your skills and build trust with potential clients with testimonials from previous clients. To improve your reputation, consider asking clients to leave reviews on third-party review websites such as Yelp or Google and connect those to your portfolio.

Use your portfolio website to communicate your availability for bookings and handle client inquiries, including a dedicated contact page with your contact information and a contact form. Respond to inquiries as soon as possible and provide clear information about your availability and pricing. Consider using a built-in scheduling tool to make the booking process easier.

Invest in high-quality lenses and reliable lighting if you are able, focus on composition and framing, and use editing tools like Lightroom to enhance your images. Using a consistent editing style together with properly exposed, thoughtful compositions will result in high-quality images for your portfolio website that accurately represent your work and showcase your skills. If you are starting out and struggling to book the kind of weddings you’d like to shoot, collaborate with local vendors to create a styled shoot.
