When it comes to being a business owner there can be a high barrier of entry because of all the tasks you have to do in a day, and all the designing and planning that goes into crafting the business. There are also a TON of helpful tools out there for you to use, but narrowing down which ones to invest in can be intimidating. Since it’s so important to invest in tools that help your business grow but to save you time and energy, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite go-to’s so you can start out prepared from the minute you start your business. So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite & lifesaving tools that I use to help streamline my photography business.

Not having to keep track of spending, monthly expenses, and revenue has been a godsend. They are linked to all my accounts and business credit cards, and they even send my reports to my accountant each month. Super easy to use dashboard and website, overall one of my top picks!

Not having any web design background, I had NO idea where to start when making my website. The best part about these templates is that they are gorgeous, to begin with, and then highly customizable to make everything in line with your brand & vibe. They all include fun “get to know me” sections, spots for Instagram integrations, and all the pages you need to help streamline your client experience and funnel them towards booking you!

Speaking of websites, once I had my With Grace & Gold Template I began to design and structure my site using Showit. Why I love Showit compared to other website providers like Squarespace & WordPress, is that you pretty much have complete artistic and design freedom. This allowed me to take my template and turn it into my DREAM site, and it also allows me to design new secret pages for brochures & guides as well! This is the perfect web design service for someone who is looking to take a basic website and fully up-level/personalize it!

This is the site & app that I use to make ALL of my graphics (including my logo!), stories, and brochures, & guides. It is so easy to use and even the free plan gives you access to tons of great resources!
Finally, Pic-Time is my new business best friend and has completely transformed my passive print sales. Not only do the galleries look sleek and beautiful, but it makes it SO easy to create sales campaigns, send print coupons, and design albums. I cannot imagine a better photo gallery service, and I am SO thankful for Pic-Time!

“I could not have dreamed of a better wedding photographer! Brynna was professional, kind, flexible, and very communicative. She knew the “look” I was going for in my wedding photos, and gave us something even better than I could have ever imagined. She truly knows how to capture the magic of a wedding day. I was nervous that taking wedding photos would be awkward, but her calming and fun personality created a relaxed and comfortable environment. I can’t wait to work with her in the future!”
