17 Evergreen Content Ideas for Wedding Photographers

August 21, 2017 | carrie

Photo by Joel Allegretto

Evergreen content is content that is strong and healthy all year round, every year – just like the beautiful trees in the PNW. You might notice that over at Junebug Weddings, we put together a lot of wedding planning posts, such as 9 Things to Do Right After Getting Engaged or 8 Ways to Personalize Your Wedding Ceremony – both of which draw traffic all. year. long, making these two posts great examples of evergreen content. While the bread and butter of the Junebug blog will always be real weddings, we love to infuse this durable content into our editorial schedule to keep folks coming back to the blog consistently.

Not only does evergreen content never get old, but it attracts tons of great traffic from Google and affords brands in every industry the ability to adopt a media company’s approach to organic traffic. Basically, if you’ve got a blog, you should be creating content that can help to promote you and what you do for years to come. While the weddings you share may become dated, a great evergreen post will stand the test of time. We’re sharing some evergreen content ideas for wedding photographers because SEO is important, and, as Gary Vaynerchuk shared on Medium recently, “there is no reason to do anything other than act like a media company in today’s digital age.”

The Best Album Companies for Wedding Photographers

August 14, 2017 | carrie

For some reason, there aren’t a ton of reviews out there when it comes to wedding photo album companies. No Google, Facebook, or Yelp reviews to point photographers in the right direction. That said, it’s no wonder so many photographers end up working with several different companies before finding the perfect one for their business. Personally, I think this user information should be more available so that wedding photographers don’t have to go through this whole trial and error process. I’ve spent a few weeks coming up with this list of recommended album companies for wedding photographers and scouring the internet and Facebook to give you guys pros and cons for each company. Here’s to finding the album company that truly matches your brand!

Artifact Uprising

Pros: High-quality flat lay albums and great customer service

Cons: Expensive, final prints may have muddy tones, and some people have reported bugs with the album builder. Also, Artifact Uprising has their pricing online for everyone to see

Kiss Books

Pros: Reasonably priced and great quality. Kiss also has an album builder with their free account

Cons: Design options are more simple and clean, which isn’t necessarily a con if that’s what you’re looking for!

QT albums

Pros: Beautiful albums built for fine art photographers and affordably priced

Cons: If you shoot a different style of photography, these albums might not fit your aesthetic

Red Tree Albums

Cons: Pricing is steeper than other album options

ZNO

Pros: Affordable and great customer service

Cons: While these albums are more affordable, you might miss out on quality and appearance. ZNO also includes their pricing of albums online

Dekora

Pros: Amazing quality and great customer service

Cons: Based in Toronto, so shipping outside of Canada is more expensive

Visionart

Pros: Reasonably priced, lots of cover options, and they offer free standard shipping all around the world

Cons: I have tried my hardest to find one bad thing about Visionart, but I really can’t. I’m actually surprised Visionart isn’t talked about more in the photography community. Let me know in the comments section if there’s a con I should list here!
