Instagram Hashtags

Overview

If you are a photographer, Instagram hashtags are a great way to add up to 30 keywords to your Instagram posts and make the people following those hashtags’ channels discover your work or make people follow you or share your best images. However, most people use ten or hashtags or less when they post images on Instagram.

What is also great is that adding too many hashtags does not detract from the image itself as the hashtags are mostly hidden, and can be revealed using “See More” below the image you posted.

Here are a few lists of Instagram hashtags that photographers may find useful to copy and use in their own image posts. I sorted them by photography domain, and I will list them all in a group of 30 hashtags, you can also add a more local and personal feel (eg, wedding venue, town/city/location, etc) to them as you see fit.

Seniors Portrait Photography

Seniors Photography is huge in the US. And the meaning of “seniors” is not the same as in the UK, seniors are coming-of-age kids, and with my city of Cambridge being surrounded with American army bases, we get loads of enquiries to capture seniors portraits. Here are a few hashtags we use on Instagram when posting Seniors portraits:

24: #thevibrantsenior #indieseniors #seniorinspire #seniorologie #thetwelfthyear #inspiringteensmagazine #seniorpictures #seniorstyleguide #seniormuse #senioryearmagazine #alternativesenior #seniorstylecollection #theseniorbest #teenandtweenstyle #seniorsznmagazine #posepatch #seniorinsta #seniorsignite #theseniorcollective #seniorstyleguide #modernsenior #seniormuse #seniorportraits
#shootandshare

Location-orientated hashtags: #cambridgesenior #cambridgephotographer #cambridgeseniorphotographer #suffolkseniors #lakenheathseniors #mildenhallseniors

Wedding Photography

#weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddingphoto #weddingday #weddingmoments #weddingceremony #weddingstyle #weddingfashion #bridalfashion #weddinginspirations #weddingblog #weddingblogger #weddingplanning #loveauthentic #happilyeverafter #weddingdetails #weddingideas #weddingcouple #weddingrings

For example, depending on the wedding venue or the location where you are shooting, or that particular image was taken, you can vary your hashtags:
#[insert location information here]wedding
#[insert location information here]photographer
#[insert location information here]weddingphotography

e.g. #cambridgeweddingphotography

In the case of wedding photography, specific hashtags may be used only for specific occasions:
#destinationweddingphotographer #samesexwedding #vintagewedding #beachwedding etc

Or you may want to use hashtags for the people in the wedding party:
#bride #brideandgroom #groom #bridesmaids #flowergirls #pageboys

Keep in mind that you may want to add the hashtags of publications/people you would like to share your post:
#junebugweddings #photobugcommunity #vscocam #wedphotoinspiration #lookslikefilm #theknot #fearlessphotographer #radlovestories #belovedstories #huffpostweddings #stylemepretty #buzzfeedweddings
