When you want to run a bridal business successfully you need pictures of actual clients that you’ve worked on on your website.
The bride is happy with your service and you’ve done an amazing job, but you need evidence that you perform bridal makeup services. When clients reach out to you they’re going to ask you for your portfolio and they’re going to ask you for pictures of real brides!
So, you do want to follow up with your bride or the photographer to get the professionally taken photos from te wedding you worked on!
How to get the professional photos of the weddings you work on?
What works best for most bridal makeup artists? In the contract that you send your bride for the booking have a section at the end of the contract where you can ask them to fill out their photographers contact details:
- Website address
- Phone number
- Email address
If you have the photographer’s contact details then reach out directly to them after the wedding. As you know, wedding pictures don’t come back right away, so you should wait a few months after the wedding to reach out to the photographer and get your photos that way.
That’s the easiest way for most bridal makeup artists to get the professional photos after the wedding.
