How to Set Up PocketSuite as a Photographer

Hey there, Photographer! So glad you decided to join us here at PocketSuite. Here are a few things you can do to get the ball rolling:


1. Get your services in

Add all the photography services you offer, from weddings to senior portraits to newborns or luxury real estate. Let’s get those in the app right away. Go to settings > services > tap + and go from there. You’ll want to tap save! Don't forget to add a deposit so your clients have to confirm with a card- you can charge them on the day of the service.

Protip: Clients love groups of three- add categories and three services to each one. Statistically, most people pick the middle option!


2. Add your clients

Add your clients by tapping the client icon in the top right corner of the app, go to settings > data import to add from your phone list, or email us your contact list to

Protip: You can also add the client credit card or discount amount when you tap +.


3. Enter your payment info

Quickly and easily set up your bank account and put a card on file in settings > payment methods. When your clients pay their invoice, deposit, or appointment, you’ll be ready to get paid. Payouts happen at noon Pacific time daily.

Protip: Check out our cancellation policy feature- it will auto charge clients who cancel within a window you specify. 


4. Set up a test appointment with a client

Schedule your first appointment so you can see how it's done. Go to the calendartap + > schedule client

Protip: Change how the client is notified by editing the Send Via field- you can even choose “don’t notify”.


5. Process your first payment

Keep up the momentum- there are ten ways to process payments on PocketSuite. 

Protip: Choose the payment method that makes the most sense for your workflow- you may want to use our estimates feature! 


Bonus: Set up online booking

Check out our Premium plans and select one so you can sit back and relax while clients book themselves. Add your schedule to settings > scheduling and PocketSuite will take care of the rest- clients will be able to see your availability and choose a time for each service you provide.
