Been really enjoying my experience with Ciderr during my first season using it.  I was introduced to it at the end of 2012 but didn’t take it too seriously.  This Spring I figured at $10 a month, why not at least sign up for it and play around with the possibility for 2014 bookings.  It took  while for me to really understand it and incorporate it into my workflow, but now it is a natural part of my sales meetings with new clients.  They know they have the option, especially if they cannot afford my larger packages, to take charge with a photography registry.  Some are not interested at all, but with others you can literally feel the relief and excitement in the room when I offer it.  I plan on focusing more on print products over the next year, so I know Ciderr will become a necessity for people who will only be able to afford my base photography prices, but who will want to invest in products that showcase their wedding after their celebration.  Long and short, Ciderr, combined with a larger vision of what you offer clients, can be an incredible way to teach clients the true value of photography from the first meeting.

I am new to using the registry but it has been a great resource to offer my brides who can not quite afford my services. There are a lot of couples that register at department stores because they “should.” The photography registry allows them to ask friends and family to make their gift something they can use that is directly related to the wedding. It is easy for them buy to a gift that the couple will have long past the life of say, a toaster. The couples that are established in their years together find it the biggest resource.

I recently started using Ciderr and couldn’t rave about it more!  It’s an incentive that I provide my clients that is super easy to setup for my clients, allows them to receive unbelievably meaningful gifts, and boosts my sales after the fact.  I highly recommend Ciderr!

i’ve only had one couple use it so far, so i think i might need some tips on getting the word out… i let each couple know when i first meet them and in the first several emails that i offer a registry… i tell them how i recently got married and wish my vendors had offered something like this… that gifts towards photography and videography last way longer than the typical sheets and spatulas you might get from guests and wont end up going to goodwill one day. :) hehe.

i think the couples that seem most interested are ones that are paying for their wedding or at least photography themselves, and are usually a little older, late 20s, early 30s etc that already have the typical gifts you get to set up house…
