Tag People in Photos

When you tag people in your wedding photography posts, you increase the reach of your photo dramatically. In most cases, tagging people causes the photo to show up in their news feed. When it appears in their news feed, they can interact with it and share it with their followers. This means your images and content are in front of a larger audience than just your followers.

As a wedding photographer, once you receive your images back from a wedding photography post production company, you can share them on Facebook. The benefit of working with various clients, vendors, and venues is you can tag them in your posts. When your posts appear on those pages, their followers have a higher chance of seeing what you have to offer. It also increases the chances your images and content will appear in front of potential clients.

For a bonus tip, encourage sharing of your images and content, and watch your reach skyrocket. This can be something you discuss with your clients beforehand, so they know to share your images and give you credit. Or, you can provide incentive on your page to share through contests with your past and current clients. The more you encourage sharing, the easier it will become to place your images and content in front of ideal clients.
