WORK WITH US
Most wedding photographers know that wedding albums are a great way to generate extra revenue. But albums can also take a lot of time to design and prepare. It’s yet another hat for professionals to wear, and can be especially daunting during busy season. As wedding photography VAs, let’s talk about the best way for you to outsource wedding albums.
The many hats of a wedding photographer can be overwhelming, busy season or not. The ever-rotating list of tasks can make it hard to find the time to design and prepare albums. But these are seriously such a great way for photographers to generate extra revenue. Outsourcing album design makes it easy to continue this part of your business, even when you’re constantly shooting and editing.
Our team of virtual assistants for wedding photographers can help you with the design and preparation of your albums. From the initial upsell process to the finished design, we’re ready to help with any and all parts of the process. Our team has a streamlined workflow that makes it easy for you to send us the gallery and let us get to work. From hands-on revisions to entirely done-for-you albums, our services can be tailored to your needs.
When it comes to easy album design, there are a few well-loved companies for our photographer clients. Kiss Books is one of the most popular choices. With heirloom albums and press-printed book options, you can reach clients of all budgets and styles. Artifact Uprising is another popular choice. Their high-quality printed books are beautiful, and they have a variety of design options.
Our workflow makes it super easy for photographers to outsource wedding albums. We send through a simple form to fill out with all the details about your album. Once we receive the order, our team will get to work on your album design. The turnaround time is quick and simple, and makes the revision process easy. For photographers who want to do their own revisions, we send the album on your way. Otherwise, you can leave us notes and we’ll take care of the rest.
Is there a specific way you like to tell your couples’ stories? Determining a standard design can help your virtual assistants keep your albums consistent. We recommend sharing a sample album design with us before we start working together. That will help us understand how you like to tell the story of a wedding day.
If you’re in the midst of a particularly busy time, you may not always send your orders or review albums quickly. Manage your client’s expectations by giving them a standard timeline for your book turnaround. When you outsource wedding albums with us, we’ll ensure to get them done as quickly as possible. Managing expectations can allow you to over-deliver on the design by sharing the finished album sooner than expected.
Another great way our team can work with you is to upsell albums to your clients. We can create album designs to share with them when they may not have even considered one. This can help entice them to add an heirloom album onto their order. Many couples don’t realize the value of how beautiful a professional wedding album can be until they see the potential. Our team of virtual assistants will help couples to envision the final product by creating a sample album for them to review.
At the Genie VA, we have extensive experience working with photographers to help them grow their businesses. We can help you build a great relationship with your clients and create beautiful albums that will leave them with lifelong memories. If you need help outsourcing wedding albums, reach out to our team and let us know. We can’t wait to help make your season even more successful.
