We at WPIC Inc. (and many others) have been preaching for years about giving proper credit to your team of wedding pros when sharing wedding photos on social media and blogs. Most wedding pros do. A new, and very odd new situation is on the rise. I am so shocked and surprised about this one.
Take a scroll through Instagram, Facebook and TikTok and look at the credits for beautiful wedding posts. How many wedding pros do you see that are not giving credit to the couple who made it all happen in the first place?
This post is meant for anyone in the wedding industry such as wedding planners, venues, photographers, stationers, florists, cake designers, decorators, DJ’s, travel agents, etc.
If your couple did not hire you to work with them in whatever capacity you work in, there would be no photos. They have hired you, signed a contract and trusted you to make their wedding the best it can possibly be. Your couples are your clients. The clients are the ones who have paid for every aspect of the wedding. How can you possibly leave out the people who gave you this opportunity? Whether it is just their initials or their first names they should absolutely be mentioned.
Disagree with me? Agree with me? Let me know why below.
