Do you really need a butter dish?
When we first started our wedding photography business we got the idea to create a wedding photography registry. Many of our couples already have two toasters and had shared their struggles with the whole wedding registry process. Everyone felt awkward asking for money but they all liked the idea of getting help funding wedding elements.
We knew couples that registered for their honeymoon and it got us thinking about our own registry. We asked a few couples if a wedding photography registry would be helpful. Since the beginning of our business this has been one of our most popular features.
Why register for photography?
A wedding registry is an excellent way to get your wedding photography package paid for by your friends and family. You can add the elements you want to your big day and you can add on upgrades like a boudoir shoot or an album with a metal cover and additional pages. Simply put it offers more flexibility with your overall wedding budget.
And how exactly does it work?
With your invites and when people ask where you are registered you can provide them our contact information. Your guests can contact us and we will send them an invoice for their contribution towards your package. If they wish to remain confidential until the wedding we won’t let you know who has contributed. As gifts are added to your registry we notify you of your shrinking photography package balance.
Our couples love the option of a wedding photography registry.
