62. Wedding Photographers: Getting Ghosted?
It’s a common frustration within the wedding photography industry to hear complaints from photographers about potential clients disappearing after showing initial interest in their services. The phenomenon of “ghosting” can leave photographers feeling disheartened and uncertain about how to proceed. However, rather than dwelling on the disappointment, I firmly believe in taking a proactive approach to address this challenge head-on. By implementing strategies to engage potential clients more effectively, provide added value, and streamline the booking process, we can not only reduce the likelihood of being ghosted but also enhance the overall client experience. In this episode, I provide you with actionable steps to overcome this obstacle and build stronger connections with potential clients.

38. Ben Journée - Getting Started With Filming Weddings
My guest today is Ben Journée all the way from New Zealand. Ben is an incredibly talented wedding filmmaker and podcaster. His podcast “Make Better Wedding Films” is one of my favorites in our industry where he gets a number of guests to talk about new ideas for radical films about people in love.  Ben starts off talking about the basics of creating simple highlight films and went on to describe how he makes story-based cinematic films. I certainly learned a lot and I am sure that you will too.
