I hate same day slideshows. I had people ask me for them and I have always refused. I won't do it for many reasons. but my top 2 are....1. It ruins the moment they would have got when I show them their edited photos later. 2. It makes it seem like your job is nothing and anyone can do it since you just threw up a slideshow of your work in 30 minutes. Kind of devalues your net worth in my opinion.
I had a friend who was big on this and I told him to watch out it might hurt him one day. It started to get very demanding and clients wanted more and more when they booked him. Then one wedding he couldn't get it done because they did not have enough time before the reception to get it done. The bride ended up suing him for a refund because he couldn't deliver. Now, after 3 years of doing it, he is getting complaints on why it takes him 3-4 weeks to get their wedding photos to them when he was able to do 100 or so photos on the day of in 30 minutes or less.
I say watch out.
Wow! A completely different approach... Thank you! Something to think about definitely... Me, as a person and a bride, I also thought it was silly to show the photos of your wedding to the guests in the same day, kind of repetitive I feel, boring for other people. But I thought, if that's what clients want what does it matter what I think?
That is true. They are paying us to do them a service. So who cares what we think.... to a point.
