Promote to who? The couple that already hired you? Pointless.

To their friends? Out of 100 weddings I've done I think 3 brides have come here because of a sister I shot or being a bridesmaid in a wedding. I've had maybe 10 more that were referrals. I did get a call today for family pics from a bride of 5 years ago because she liked her friends wedding pics of 4 years ago.

But I've NEVER EVER seen anyone else 'give it away for promoton'. Try that with your dentist, dry cleaners, tomorrow at lunch, next trip to the grocery store, next time you need a hair cut, etc.
Not gonna happen. Ever.
