When you are just starting as a wedding planner, you need to get a portfolio to show to clients. But, when you haven’t had any clients, it’s hard to get a portfolio of your work. Therefore, you need to arrange a styled wedding shoot to give clients an idea of your creativity and vision.
Building a Wedding Portfolio
Every wedding begins with a few loose ideas from a client and then it’s up to you to take those ideas and make them come to life. Planning a styled wedding shoot is all about telling a story. To give yourself some range, think about planning a few photo shoots that are stylistically different. You want to show clients that you can accommodate any wedding theme, dream, and concept.
Planning a Styled Wedding Shoot
Once you have your concept, it’s time to bring it to life so that you can take beautiful wedding photos for your portfolio. The themes for weddings tend to be classic, rustic, royal, or bohemian chic. Of course, there are many concepts that incorporate a mixture of themes, but for the sake of your portfolio what you need to prove is that you can take a theme and turn it into a complete vision full of personal and unique details. The little decorative details are what is going to set you apart as a wedding planner, so don’t just copy what you have seen others do in styled wedding shoots.
