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!

The formula is simple.

clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer

We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
