Chris! Hello! Nice to see an Okie here =D Yes, I am aware of that. But I have limited my self to 10 weddings a year. I am currently at 8 weddings for this year. Why limit my self? I am still honing my skills and style. I don't want to be rushed on these weddings. I don't want to half-a$$ job it. I have a full time job so it will also allow me to do my main job. =D

Oh I understand that too, I'm in IT full time, I just don't know if having empty links is good, again, some verbiage to contact you and set something up would be nice, whats the difference in that and them emailing you without hitting that page? If you are booked, you still have to tell them you are booked regardless of if they just emailed you or hit the investment page and got some words that say to contact you on a custom package...thats what most of the popular photographers have on their site, from what I've noticed.

Its not as frustrating as hitting empty links, or buttons that don't work, and you well should know as a web designer that its not good and puts an impression on your site as if its not working or not finished.

Not trying to preach to you sorry, do what you feel is best.

No no no! I do like your words of wisdom. I am actually inspired to do something about that =D I do see your point.

Need some feedback...every one here I believe must have their own website as their portfolio...

I just wondering how you market your service to outsider no matter wedding, portrait...etc...

I hardly to get any jobs...hope you can share with me your ideas....on marketing strategy used...

Looking forward some feedback

You need to know your market and how to market to it. I have neither a website or a portfolio on line. Its not how my clients would hire a photographer. In fact with some of the work I do it could actually work against me.

Ready for a long list? haha

posters in areas that I target the demographic.

What sort of posters and where do you put them?

Theres a popular street in a near by town that seems to get lots of foot traffic *odd thing for these parts*. Last vday when I was doing pics there I saw a bunch of cheaply printed flyers posted on every other pole, and Ive been thinking about doing something similiar.

Perhaps get some prints made up with uv coating, put them in something and attach them to posts. Im not sure how much I like this idea though.
