Zenfolio expands BookMe with automated workflow and commerce to save photographers 40 hours per month


The latest Zenfolio tools take advantage of machine learning, intelligent automation, enhanced photo tagging and sharing, with an emphasis on an intuitive, easy-to-use interface designed for mobile access and compatibility with social media.

BookMe streamlines and simplifies a photographer’s daily workflow by automating a host of functions that traditionally added hours to a photographer’s workday. “Think about the time a busy photographer spends booking a session with calls or emails with clients, and that’s just a small portion of the unproductive time spent on administration. BookMe puts our new technology platform to work for photographers by automating all stages of planning, paying, gallery sharing, and selling ecommerce packages – time that could be better spent behind the lens rather than behind. an office, ”said Munib Siddiqi, Product manager.

On average, BookMe can save two hours of administrative work per client session. For photographers who schedule 20 sessions per month, BookMe records them for over 40 hours. It also saves time by consolidating all features and tools on one integrated platform rather than logging in and out of multiple services to achieve the same capabilities.

  • Reservation and payment: saves one hour per customer session – BookMe syncs with Google Calendar to show a photographer’s availability, available session types, and photo packages so a customer can book and pay for a shot and print a package in a snap. No more phone etiquette or round-trip emails.
  • Automatically generated customer galleries: saves half an hour per customer session – BookMe automatically generates a behind-the-scenes customer gallery when booking the session. The gallery intelligently knows which BookMe package has been pre-ordered by the customer. After the shoot, the client connects to the gallery, where he can check and choose the photos to order.
  • Automatic execution: saves half an hour per client session – after uploading photos and sharing the customer gallery, orders can be instantly exchanged, processed by the lab and shipped directly to the customer.

The BookMe button can be added to any photographer’s website, even those not hosted by Zenfolio, and can be personalized with the photographer’s logo and color scheme to perfectly reflect their brand. The user interface is simple to use and responsively adapts to all desktop, tablet and mobile screens.

“BookMe is a game-changer, it saves time and offers a seamless customer experience. The process of booking a photographer can be tedious. With BookMe, a customer can book his session instantly and this translates into an increased booking volume ”, explains Katie Van Buren, Professional photographer.

BookMe is available to Zenfolio subscribers as part of the smart workflow built into the latest ProSuite plan for professional photographers, or can be added to PortfolioPlus and Portfolio plans designed for aspiring or part-time professionals.
