all-inclusive wedding welcome packet, magazine and client care cards
Today we have a lovely fan share from Rebecca of The Studio B Photography. She writes, "First I made the Luxe Wedding Studio Magazine, which I published online through Issuu and published in print though Mag Cloud. I followed that with the Wedding Client Welcome Packet, and Client Care Cards, which I customized to match my brand and my blog.
Design Aglow products are completely addictive. You can't have just one! I began with the Luxe Wedding Studio Magazine and it just wasn't enough. I love how Design Aglow templates help you give your business a more polished and professional look without spending a ton of money. I like being able to be creative and put my own spin on the templates, which saves me so much time. Starting a large project like the Luxe Wedding Studio Magazine would have been completely overwhelming if I'd designed it from scratch, and I would've never gotten it done.
The Client Welcome Packet is such a good idea and it was fun to personalize the different elements for my clients. The Client Care Cards are a beautiful way to pass along helpful information to clients without coming across as too preachy (but seriously...they DO need to back up their images!)
I recently blogged about the debut of our magazine and shared the news on Facebook as well. Clients, friends, and colleagues all LOVED it. I expected a positive reaction, but it was amazing how many people (even people I hadn't talked to in ages!) went out of their way to tell me what a great idea they thought it was and how helpful it would be to clients.
I've sent copies to local wedding venues and planners and everyone is so excited to show it to their brides. I now host an online version of the magazine on my blog and it's one of the most popular pages!
Thank you so very much for making such a wonderful product that allows me to educate clients and showcase my work at the same time!!"
Thanks for the great share, Rebecca! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop~
The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.
This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
If you run a photography business, you may feel like you spend 10% of your time actually creating images and the other 90% juggling endless administrative tasks. And when you’re focused on taking care of your clients, taking care of your business can get pushed to the back burner. But…that needs to stop. Organization isn’t a luxury. A streamlined studio gives you a solid foundation on which to build a successful business. So go ahead and make those brass tacks a priority. Here are the ducks you should get in a row, like, yesterday.
