We all have them: our bucket list of amazing perfect venues that we dream about shooting in. Venues that we know would be the perfect location to show off our photography style, and entice the ideal clients that go along with it. You may already be attracting some of your ideal clients, but we all have a variety of goals, and if shooting at that beautiful castle or unique wedding venue is on your list of things to achieve, then there are some things you can do to improve your chances of shooting at those dream locations.
As a professional wedding photographer, I have shot in a huge variety of NJ wedding venues over the past ten years, and even a few out of state ones too. When choosing your bucket list venues, keep in mind that the perfect dream venue should be a space that truly complements your photography style, has plenty of portrait locations, and provides the type of lighting that best suits your style of photography. This should be the perfect location for you to create the best images possible, as a venue choice does ultimately affect how clients’ wedding photos will look. Keep this in mind when making your bucket list, and don’t just choose a venue because your competitors shoot there a lot. Choose a venue because of what it has to offer and the value it will provide to you, your business, and your future clients.
Try some of these ideas and you may be surprised at how quickly you get your bucket list venues on your calendar in a short period of time. The power of manifesting is really set in setting small-implemented steps towards your goal. If the dream venue isn’t coming to you, you need to go to it! Who knows, you may be on someone else’s dream bucket list wedding photographer very soon!
