Over the years, we have come to see patterns and movement within certain groups of hashtags. Below you will find a complete list of hashtags for wedding photographers to use on your social media platforms. Moreover, please note hashtags work particularly well when concentrating on Instagram. So, no worries. We've got your back. Our team has done the research, so you don't have to!
This may seem like old news to some of you, so if you have been using hashtags religiously to boost your Instagram game, then skip past this tip. But for our beloved newbie entrepreneurs, we have a simple tip on how to post hashtags quickly and painlessly.
Open up the ‘Notes App' in your phone. Starting a new page, you want to add all of your hashtags. You are allowed to use up to 30 hashtags per caption. That doesn't mean you have to use that many, and it also doesn't mean you have to use hashtags for every single one of your posts either. So, put all the hashtags that you use the most frequently in your notes, and then you can copy and paste them into your caption. Or better yet, to not make your caption look too cluttered, post your hashtags in the first comment under your caption.
When applying hashtags to your images, Instagram will show you how many times each tag gets used. Making use of an oft used hashtag will likely increase searches for that particular hashtag. Be that as it may, many will argue that a less used hashtag will allow you to stand out. The question to ask yourself is if you want to be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond. Might we suggest to splash around a bit in both ponds?
No matter which side you choose on the pond discussion, it is imperative that you do focus on your location. For example, if you want to attract people getting married in Dallas, TX, you could use some of the following hashtags: #dallaswedding, #dallasweddingphotographer, #dallasbride, #texasbride… In the same way, you can search locations and other hashtags that are popular in the area you have chosen to focus your business in. Kenny Kim, a renowned destination photographer, once shared that he took a picture of a beautiful church he saw, so he took a picture of the church, used location specific hashtags, and a bride contacted him because that was the church she had chosen to get married in and looked for hashtags related to it. That is how powerful these hashtags can be if you use them properly!
At the end of the day, your hashtags will be as unique as your brand. Create your own set of hashtags specifically for your wedding photography business. When you get really hashtag-savvy, come back and we will dive deeper into hash-groups, hash-recall, and maybe we will do it over hash browns! Until then, happy hashing!
