Seattle photographer Joe Tobiason talks authentic client experiences.

Joe on Authentic Client Experiences

  • Get to know your clients before hand.  Find out who your clients are.  Find little moments that allow your couples to be yourself.
  • The camera can take away intimacy – it’s your job to take authentic moments and make them look just a little bit better.
  • Your weddings can look different and that’s okay.  Tell the story of each individual day.
  • Can you love people well, and are you paying your bills?
  • When you first start, take a LOT of photos.  Have fun, and find people who are having fun and capture them.  Just start doing and learn down the road.
  • It’s okay to just get started!  Trial and error is so important in finding yourself as a photographer.
  • Take your time, do your testing, and continue to get better.
  • Hit all of the senses – Joe starts his USB deliveries with a slideshow.
  • Every single part of your client experience leads up to the satisfaction of your clients.
  • Joe delivers a USB and an online gallery for a final touch.  This allows them to slow down and remember the day.
  • Do you want your last touch point with a client to be an email?
  • The photographer has the chance to be the favorite vendor on a wedding day, and should be!
  • Inside jokes are a good sign!  You want your clients to have fun with you and trust you.
