Tuesday Tips #228 Building Vendor Relationships

If you are a wedding photographer than you know that there isn’t always an opportunity to chat it up with the coordinator or location host in between key moments. Now that the schedule has lightened up, circle back with those people to develop relationships that could create open ended opportunities in next year’s season. Maybe you could compile a mini sample album from your favorite engagement session or a link to a slideshow from the last wedding you did together? Meanwhile, you can bounce referrals back to them as your latest inquiries become your clients. Scratch their back and they are bound to scratch yours!

“As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”
– Amy Poehler
