One of the most significant moments for a newlywed couple is the first time they see their wedding photos…that is of course unless their images have already been tainted by all the amateur photographers and ‘facebook posters’ at the event. Solve the issues surrounding and avoid the camera-happy ‘Uncle Bobs’ forever by offering your clients our Wedding Request Cards.
Perfectly and politely phrase the bride and groom’s request that all of the photography taken on their wedding day remain in the hands of the photographer. With our well-worded, elegantly designed card, your clients can eliminate distracted guests and spoiled photos.
ELIMINATE CONCERNS BEFORE THEY ARISE:
• Capture guests enjoying themselves instead of fumbling with technology
• Help avoid unflattering images surfacing on social media platforms
• Preserve the excitement for all of the special images you capture of the day
• Have the total attention of your subjects during formals and other important moments of the day
• The bride and groom will thank you for helping to keep their guests mentally present
TESTIMONIAL: “I loved that at the end of the day there were no hideous camera phone images of my wedding floating around on Facebook or any other social media sites. We were so excited to receive our images because we had no idea what anything looked like except from memory. It was great to see everyone’s faces in the photos I did receive instead of a bunch of cameras and flashes waving around, and we didn’t have to worry about posing for hours so every guest could get their shot.” -Lauren C. (Happy Bride)

Say Hello to April Zelenka, the new Face of Design Aglow for the next 12 months!
Hello! I’m a graphic designer by weekday and wedding photography by weekend. I’m an antique hunter, flea market fanatic, and creative junkie. I never leave my house without my sketchbook or my camera.
When I was 14 I was diagnosed with a heart condition and became an advocate and media spokesperson for the American Heart Association. Being able to share my story with other people was one of greatest privileges and experiences. I love to share my journey of ups and downs, hopes and dreams of my photography business. The past three years have been a roller coaster of emotions and tough decisions, but I’m learning as I go. My passion for photography and being creative runs deep in my veins and each day I learn something new.
I aim to be an open book to struggles and successes of a young ambitious business owner. And yes, I may crack a few jokes along the way. I pride myself in being pretty funny :-).
How long have you been a professional photographer? 3 years
If you could shoot anywhere in the world, where would it be: Ireland. On the cliffside. At dusk.
Dogs or cats: Dogs. Big dogs!
Where do you see yourself in one year: There have been quite a few changes in the past year. I bought a house. I quit a job that restricted creative freedom. I discovered a love of iced coffee & muffins. I became a godmother to the sweetest little girl.
With all of the said, I’m ready to make some more changes in life, especially in my business. I’d love to plan out the next year so I can do wedding photography full-time and make a profit! I love my job as a graphic designer, but more so I love working with my brides & grooms! I am a hopeless romantic after all. In a year I hope to have a gorgeous website full of amazing blog content, have pricing I can feel confident in, and create work that I truly feel proud of. I want to kick self doubt to the curb! It’s much easier said than done, but one day at a time.
