In our Instagram for the Wedding Photographer Guide, we discuss simple strategies to help you develop and maintain a successful Instagram account. We also showcase a few Instagram pros who share their techniques to mastering Instagram. Here are 5 tips to help you properly use Instagram in for your wedding photography business.
1. Create Two Profiles
Consider creating two separate profiles – a wedding photography business profile and a personal profile. In your business profile, it is still important to share some personal photos, but you can use this to primarily showcase your wedding photos and gain followers who are potentially interested in booking you. If you started on Instagram with a personal profile, change that Instagram handle to your photography business name – this way, all of your followers will now be following your wedding photography business. Simply changing your handle allows you to keep the followers you gained and allows you to create a more business-centric page. From here, you can create a new personal Instagram account.
Instagram is fast emerging as a premier social media tool. For professional wedding photographers, learning how to harness the power of Instagram to help share images, connect with clients and vendors, and grow their business is essential.

With over 1.35 billion active users on Facebook, it is one of the most popular social platforms you can use to advertise your wedding photography business. This social site can be the ultimate marketing tool to grow your business, so how can you effectively post on Facebook to increase traffic to your business? Here are three tips that will help you succeed in creating effective Facebook posts.
1. Post when people are online
While you may be the most creative at 2am and produce great blog posts at that hour, resist the temptation to post them to Facebook right away. Though it may seem like a great idea to get it live on Facebook as soon as possible, consider who is actually online at that time. Are the clients that you cater to sleeping or awake and active? Are your Facebook followers working during this time or are they free somewhere that they can browse the Internet? If you want more people to see your post, make sure to post when people are at their computers and actively on Facebook. [···]
