p.3 #1 · p.3 #1 · have you ever been "blog-blocked" ?

Cordell, I'm not overboard and it's not privacy, it's priorities. "You" want pictures to use for your advertising. I want my photographer to be thinking about our wedding, not his advertising. I want a pro who knows copyright does not give him permission to use my picture for his advertising. I want the pro to know that we are not his models but that he is our photographer. I want the photographer to respect that I have shelled out thousands of dollars on dresses, venues, catering, travel, formal attire, etc., etc., and not for him to use us as

Incorrect line of thinking entirely.

If the photographer is, indeed, focused on his marketing/blogging/social media, then the likelihood is that he/she will rise above and beyond what it would normally take to get a good shot because he wants a great shot for marketing himself. I always want to make my clients happy, but when I show up to a venue that's beyond gorgeous, and I see a potentially insanely awesome lighting/posing situation, I get all giddy and can't wait to get the shot that I know I want.

On the other hand, I don't think I would do this, but I wouldn't be hard pressed to say that I would understand if someone was told that their images aren't to be shared, and the photographer decided to half-ass their work because "Who cares? No one is going to see these except the couple anyway."

Praise on wedding review sites/Yelp!, likes on blog posts with clients tagged in images - they are necessary for word of mouth marketing/viral marketing. It's invaluable to a business and industry like ours.

One missed blog post for a venue I've never photographed, and you're darn right that's potentially lost business for someone searching for a photographer who has shot at that particular venue.


I never really thought about it that way before.

Maybe I should start looking into this new "blogging" bandwagon that everyone and their mother seems to be hopping on these days?

I either blog it or I don't blog it. I don't let the client decide which images can be blogged. If they have privacy concerns, I simply don't blog. Not a big deal.


I do this, except I consider what a client might NOT want people to see and then use my best judgment to avoid those photos when blogging.

Chances are pretty good that if a client doesn't want to see an image on a blog, they don't want to see it at all.

Unless they're the type to be paranoid or a privacy freak. In which case, I'd do my best to discover that before I had to deal with their psychological issues the week of the wedding, like just happened to someone on another forum I frequent.
