As wedding photographers, we wear a lot of hats. And while we’d love to spend all of our time behind the camera, that’s just not the case. At the end of the day we are small business owners. And with that comes a boat load of tasks that need taken care of. So how do I do it? With the help of some trusty websites that keep me organized so that I can focus on serving my couples well. Here are what I feel are the best websites for wedding photographers!

I have been with Honeybook since their first year or so. And when I say it revolutionized my business, I am not kidding! All of my client interaction takes place in Honeybook, which is so convenient! Contracts, emails, questionnaires, all of it. (With the exception of timelines but more on that later) Plus the workflows feature is super handy if you are concerned with accidentally skipping a step in your process. It’s nice to not have to look in twelve places for client information and allows me to keep track of all of the small details that go into wedding days.

Oh Showit. Another love story! I have used both Wix and Squarespace and I’m here to tell you that they don’t even compare to Showit. With an endless lineup of professional and polished website templates that are totally customizable, Showit is lightyears ahead of the competition. Showit can be on the pricier side but you can sign up to receive alerts when there is a sale here.
I love organization so I really love Planoly! Being able to plan out my instagram feed in advance is critical. If I don’t I get terribly behind and just post anything. Which stresses me right out! And that’s not helpful, trust me. Planoly lets me keep everything straight so I stick to my plan for the month. The auto schedule feature is super handy if you are super busy and don’t have time to manually post every day!
This one might be overlooked, but I assure you Google Drive is my first tab that opens when I open my browser. That’s how important it is in my business! It’s my command center. My mission control. This is where I keep all of my plans for educational blogs for my clients and photographers, my profit and loss report, my second shooter list, my hashtag library, my reels ideas, my content calendar, my yearly goals.. you name it! Google sheets is my business BFF.
Google Docs is how I send the photography timelines to my clients and second shooters. I like sending it this way because they are able to edit it and make changes as needed before the wedding day. Plus I can keep a template form handy so my timeline is always super structured and organized!
I was afraid of Tailwind for the longest time. It intimidated me for no reason! Now that I’ve got the hang of it, is super handy! Pinterest is a big part of my workflow and Tailwind helps me keep on top my pinning by allowing me to schedule out my pins. It is quite literally working for me while I am sleeping sometimes. And that is priceless to me!
Flodesk is one the newest on the team. I previously used Mailchimp for my email marketing but once I caught a glimpse at how user friendly and aethetically pleasing Flodesk is, I gave up Mailchimp for good! Which is exactly why it made my list for the best websites for wedding photographers. Get 50% off of Flodesk here.
By now you all know of my love for organization. So it’s no surprise that I love Trello! I keep the app on my phone and use it to take notes when I think of ideas while on the go. Plus I can just log into the desk top version when I am creating my content calendar for the month. Bonus: their mascot is a husky! Oh and did I mention they have a free version that is amazing?
Finally we have Canva. I use Canva for all of my graphics for Pinterest but I’m certain their are endless other things you can use it for. The free version packs a punch but you can even sign up for their premium version for more font and graphic options!
