Why hire a professional photographer & Maid of Social?
Having a professional photographer for your wedding or event is a no-brainer. They are capturing all the traditions and memories that will be cherished for generations. We want to stay out of their way. The Maid of Social team works with the photographer in advance and throughout the day to help capture the in-between moments and push them out to the digital world.
Couldn't I just handoff my iPhone or GoPro to a bridesmaid on my wedding day?
You could, but your bridesmaid should be able to enjoy the day with you -- not be responsible for posting on social media. Trust us: it's more time-consuming than it looks. And don't forget, after a few glasses of champagne, who knows what she'll post! Maid of Social has highly qualified experience in taking over social media accounts for larger brands and companies, so let us do the work by showcasing your beautiful day and allowing your people to enjoy it with you.
What led you to start Maid of Social?
After working in the wedding industry for bridal magazines, wedding dress designers and photographers alike, we saw the need for a service to cover a couple's wedding day on social media for them. Also, brands wanted to be more involved on the wedding day too. When cofounder Heather Hall got married in the fall of 2015, friends and family who could not attend wanted to be able to follow along on social media and the designers of her bridal look wanted photos to share right away -- thus Maid of Social was born! Now we manage accounts and coordinate with brands and vendors to really showcase the beauty of each event!
How will I know if I like the photos you post from my wedding?
We were part of "real weddings" teams at the wedding publication where senior photo editors taught us what types of detail photos to look for and how to style photos. We're lucky enough to have wedding photographer friends (that are in the top of the industry!) who have also given us tips and tricks throughout the years to taking great photos.
Also, from running the social media for big wedding accounts, we know what types of photos perform the best, what hashtags to use and simple things to make your wedding day social media equally as rockin' as your dance floor!
What social media platforms will you use?
We'll personalize packages to fit your needs. Our favorite social media platforms include Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Periscope! We can also use Facebook, WeChat, Tumblr...
Do you only do weddings in New York City?
We're currently split between NYC and the Gulf Coast, so we're available for travel to your city. This service is also perfect for destination weddings!
Will you post on the Maid of Social handles or my handles?
This is another place that we can personalize a package for you. While we prefer to post on your accounts, we could also post on the official social media accounts for Maid of Social -- or both!
Do you do other events outside of weddings?
Yes! Conferences and high profile events are also in our wheelhouse. From Engage!, The Inner Circle Experience to Reggie Bush's Celebrity Charity Weekend Maid of Social has served some of the leading professionals in the world of luxury.
