A wedding photography is unique thing which turns into a masterpiece in skillful hands. The wedding is a grand event in itself and surely you would want to share impressions and photos of it.

What kind of photos to use?Photo by @viktorija_koroleva
The first rule is to choose the most unusual photo that catches your eye. What kind of emotions does it evoke? Tenderness, the desire right now to be in the place of the bride and groom, try on a flowing dress and plunge into the atmosphere of a magical fairy tale. Everything shines around the bride, and she is at the center of the entire universe. Yes, it should be an amazing photo (or video).
And here goes the first secret - try to make a carousel of differently processed photos. Suggest to the audience choose the photos they like most of all in the comments. And what's the secret? Carousel photos have more touches than a single photo, which means the reach will be higher.
The second important rule is to mark the location of the wedding (geolocation). This will greatly increase the views of the post at once. People love interesting locations; they choose places for themselves, where they also would like to spend an important event. The number of profile visits on your wedding post will increase by at least 2 times.

The third important rule - if your Instagram page does not yet have millions of reach, write a text under the photo, talk to your audience, include interaction, and followers will respond to you in the same way.

It can be a story of preparation for an exciting and beautiful day. What do you remember? What was important for you?A great variant for the post is a description of the style of the wedding. How was this wedding different from the others? Don't forget to mention the wedding photographer at the end. A love parable or text about tenderness is also a great option for the post.
Start the text with a catchy headline. It could be a question to the audience or a riddle. The first sentence should lead to the second and so on up the chain. Reread the text aloud. Does it play back easily? If there are difficult words or too long sentences, shorten them up.Photo by @kotphotos
The text does not always have to be long. Emotion is the main thing. Look at the sentence: "It was scary on the roof, but we made it. I look at the photo and tears come to my eyes from the article. The author showed us his/her emotions from the wedding shoot on the roof. The text is written simply and sincerely.
Should you use hashtags?Photo by @maksim_dobryy
The next thing that will bring your wedding post to the top is hashtags. Put them not in the body of the post, but in the first comment. That way people don't accidentally click on hashtags and leave the page. Hashtags refer to the theme of the post, the style of the wedding and the location. Think about what hashtags your target audience can follow, put up to 30 hashtags. Example: #weddingsusa #weddingsmallorca #weddingdressmoscow.
How to end the post?
If your post sells, then at the end of the text there must be an appeal. Where do you want to bring the audience? To the Direct, profile header or on messenger? One more secret of getting your post to the top is to have your friends repost it within 30 minutes of publication. You also shouldn’t forget to repost your own post after publication. It means your followers will notice it faster, go to the feed, and give a reaction to it. If Instagram sees that the post is actively gaining comments and likes, it promotes your content more actively.
This is the age of video content. Create video Reels from photos, and it will be a masterpiece! Don't forget to post regularly. Don't disappear for months, weeks. You certainly have a lot to show and tell!
