customizing our templates for photo cards

Our lovely share today comes from Liz Bradley of Elizabeth & Jane Photography.  Liz writes, "I used the Style 1 design from the Visual Poetry Accordion Album Collection to create a beautiful wedding thank you card design. The card is bi-fold so I was able to use the front cover of the album template for the front of the card, the back cover for the back of the card, and I used one of the front spreads for the inside of the card. I changed the colors to fit my couple's color theme and the flowers in the design matched perfectly as the bride had a huge white flower in her hair on her wedding day. Not only does the thank you card look phenomenal, it was the quickest card I've designed, and the quickest client-approved card I've ever made.  The back cover easily allowed me to add my logo for some very easy, and beautiful, targeted marketing straight to every single wedding guest.  I include thank you cards in every wedding collection for this very reason and it is so great that I can use these templates for many different styles and designs. I've even already mocked up a thank you card from another wedding using Style 2 of Visual Poetry! My clients FLIPPED out when they saw their card - they couldn't stop raving about them. They completely loved the cards and I know the guests they send them to will as well. My clients have actually requested that their 12x12 wedding album be done using this style/design as well so that's saying something!" Thanks for the great share Liz... your $75 gift certificate is on the way!

After road tripping across the U.S. and getting engaged on the black sand beaches in Iceland, my fiancée and I were looking for something that would be a truly once in a lifetime experience for our honeymoon. We aren’t cookie cutter people—the words “all-inclusive” and “luxury” very rarely fit into our travel plans. We knew we wanted something far from our home in New England. We were determined to make our honeymoon a trip that would not only be an adventurous escape, but also a meaningful experience with a view into a different cultural world.

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”
