The Business of Luxury Weddings Podcast
If you’re good at the craft, raising your rates isn’t a question of skill. It’s more about doing the mindset work so you can confidently elevate how you show up in the marketplace. Your work has to be good – that’s a given, but you’ll hit a ceiling if you only focus on that. To grow our revenue, we have to raise what we think our work is worth – and that has a lot to do with branding.
The shift to a higher rate starts internally. Believing it for ourselves first makes the pricing and marketing work easier. If we don’t feel worthy, we’ll never have the confidence to ask for more, even if we’re exceptional photographers.
