As a professional wedding photographer who’s been in the industry for 5 years at the time of writing this article, I’ve learned that there are SO many important tools that are used to create the one of a kind experience I look to provide for my clients. On the surface it may just seem like all you need is a camera, but as any photographer who’s been in the industry knows that is FAR from all you need to succeed. That’s why in this article we’re taking a look at 3 unique tools that I use in my photography business EVERY SINGLE DAY.

1. Canva

The first tool we’ll take a look at is one that has been a lifesaver when it comes to making my life easier when running my photography business. I’m of course talking about Canva! Canva is a service that is invaluable both for my client experience, my presence on social media, and even just in my day to day life. Canva is a service that gives you the power to design graphics for any scenario you can think of. Between its client guides, images for Instagram, and anything else I need to look cohesive with my branding, Canva is the easiest way to get things done.

Canva does offer a free pricing option for you to start with, and then a few different paid options for you to choose from. I personally use Canva for Teams to collaborate with other members of my other business, Msav Creative Co, in real time!

2. Dubsado

Next up is Dubsado! Dubsado is the tool that has been the go to for my photography business since I started. It’s my hub for emailing clients, tracking their projects, monitoring and collecting their invoices, and more. Dubsado is a CRM service that takes a while to master, but once you do you are SET! If you’re willing to put in the work up front when it comes to setting up your workflows, then you’re golden as it’ll handle basically everything for you from the moment someone inquires through your website! Dubsado allows you to start for free and then upgrade your service as needed. Once you’re ready to start paying for Dubsado use my referral link or the code msavphotodub when you sign up to get 20% off of your first month or year!

3. Pic-Time

Last, but DEFINITELY not least on our list is Pic-Time! Yet another invaluable tool in my photography business’s arsenal, Pic-Time is the album delivery system that I use and I absolutely LOVE it. Their site is beautiful, has a simple and easy to use layout, slideshows, and more. This not only gives you the photographer a great user experience, but also your clients which I am all about. Pic-Time again lets you start for free and then upgrade your plan as needed. When that time comes use my referral link or the code PQ2V9R for a free month of a Pic-Time paid plan!

There are 3 tools that I quite literally could not live without when running my photography business. Be sure to take advantage of my referral links or codes when signing up for a paid plan as they benefit both you and me.
