You don’t need a PR manager and an expensive marketing campaign to get noticed. The eye-catching, yet cost-effective Modern Minimalist™ Wedding Studio Magazine and Welcome Packet provides the perfect platform to highlight your skills in style and simultaneously establish an associated sense of professionalism.

Natalie of Natalie Franke Photography shares, “Over the past few years, I’ve been continuing to build an even better experience for my clients. Among my goals for the new year – I made it a priority to finally create a Booking Packet to welcome new couples into the Natalie Franke Photography family! After purchasing the Design Aglow Wedding Welcome Packet and Magazine – I went to work making the booklet and additional materials my own! I absolutely LOVE how my Welcome Packets show off my images and share important information with my couples! Having beautiful materials like these sets me apart in my local market and allows me to offer my brides an extraordinary experience from the very start!

Thanks for sharing, Natalie! Enjoy your shopping spree on us~

design aglow diaries: setting up shop in portland

design-aglow-diaries-setting-up-shop-041614-1 design-aglow-diaries-setting-up-shop-041614-2b design-aglow-diaries-setting-up-shop-041614-3b

As mentioned in our diary entry last month, the Design Aglow team recently made the brave move from south Florida to the land of Portlandia… and Toto, we’re definitely not even in the same galaxy anymore. From cats on leashes, roller derby marathons and virtually non-stop creative inspiration — not to mention the best food and lattes we’ve ever tasted — we’re falling in love with the hip vibe and inspiring attitude of the Pacific Northwest a little more every day.

Once we arrived and began exploring our new home, finding the perfect studio space in Portland proved to be a rather challenging task. Finally, after much searching and frustrating dead ends, we stumbled across D Street Village Office Lofts, an old hippie supermarket-turned-beautifully-renovated-space on SE Division… which just so happens to be one of the most happening neighborhoods in all of Portland’s Eastside. We moved in a few weeks ago and feel right at home in this charming little pocket of culture surrounded by the best that Portland’s food & bev scene has to offer: from the original Pok Pok to Roman Candle Baking Co. (where pizza shears are provided for slicing) to scrumptious and Portland quintessential Bollywood Theater right next door. There’s even a Salt & Straw Ice Cream “farm-to-cone” shop conveniently down the street. Foodie heaven, for sure.

The last month has been met with a happy growth spurt in our small company, with fresh faces on our team and some exciting new partnerships and projects ahead. As we hang our frames on the walls and the Ikea desks get assembled, we look forward to the inspiration Portland is sure to spark not only in the day-to-day running of Design Aglow, but in our personal lives as well. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on our progress as our new city becomes our new home.

sell your product offerings: even without a studio!

studio-look-book-deluxe-fanshare-041214-1 studio-look-book-deluxe-fanshare-041214-2 studio-look-book-deluxe-fanshare-041214-3

Since we know you have to show it if you want to sell it, Design Aglow offers our very own ready to use Studio Look Book. Professionally written and graphically designed, our fully customizable template is divided into categories to help sell all your fabulous studio offerings, from everything from albums to wall galleries, specialty items, high resolution negatives and more.

Don’t just take our word for it! Austyn of Austyn Elizabeth Photography shares, “We recently have done a makeover on a lot of our products and the visual aspect of the business, including the use of Design Aglow’s Frame Shop and the Modern Minimalist™ Collection. We were scheduled for two bridal shows this spring; one of them was this past weekend. When browsing through Instagram I saw a preview of the Minimalist Look Book and was ecstatic – it would complete everything about the booth, but also what I want clients to see without the help of a physical studio. I purchased the product and started filling in all the photos, pricing and other informational aspects of what we offer clients. It was so simple and so easy. The next morning I uploaded the files to ProDPI. Two days later it arrived on my doorstep and was perfect. I had a hundred brides view the book this weekend at the bridal show. While we had several of our products available to view at our booth, offering the Look Book to view more options was so wonderful.

I don’t have a studio space I work out of and needed a way to show off products to potential and current clients without having them be viewed within a studio. The Look Book is an amazing tool in fulfilling this goal. It’s the beautiful Modern Minimalist™ style that resonates with our current look and is lovely to view. It gave wonderful descriptions of products we offer our brides and was customizable if something needed to be altered. It is one more thing that separates my photography business from the next and brides love it!

Thanks for sharing, Austyn!
