Best Business Books for Wedding & Elopement Photographers
In this post I am sharing my favorite business books for photographers! With photography being such a creative industry it can be difficult to get your business going, or have the motivation to lean in to all of the things it takes to run a successful and profitable business even if you’re exceptionally talented at creating photographs for your clients.
Let’s face it, a lot of us haven’t picked up a book for a long time or we simply don’t have the time or patience to sit down and read a physical book with so many distractions like social media, Netflix and for some of us families too.
Shout out to those of you that are still balancing a job outside of starting your business, because I’ve been in your shoes before and fully understand that free time is a luxury that some of us don’t have much of. With that being said, all of this books are available on Audible if that’s more your speed.
In fact, I didn’t read the physical copy of any of these books. I listened to each one of these during car rides to and from weddings or elopements, while I was editing, through headphones while my kiddo watched cartoons on Netflix, winding down in bed at the end of the day and even sometimes just playing through my bluetooth speaker while I was cleaning up around the house.
Each of these business books for photographers helped grow my business in different ways and I’m excited to be sharing them with you.
