Quick And Easy Reel Ideas

Get To Know Me

There’s a trend going around for photographers right now that is a simple way to help your audience get to know you. All you need is a photo or two of yourself, along with a round-up of some of your work. Not only does this help your followers learn a little more about you, but it also acts as a way to show off your photography.

Photo + Video

We know that you’re running around doing one hundred different things when you’re shooting a wedding, but consider taking some video footage on your phone as a small “behind-the-scenes” of the day. Then combine it with the photos from the wedding for a glimpse of what the special day was like.

Engagement + Wedding

As a wedding photographer, there’s a good chance that you’ve shot couples’ engagement photos and wedding photos. Why not combine them in a reel to show off the relationships you’ve formed with your clients?

A Photo Roundup

This is about as simple as it gets. If you still want to show off your weddings without going above and beyond, create a reel that’s just a photo roundup. Because this concept is so straightforward, you can play with the music based on the aesthetic of the wedding or choose a sound that’s trending.
