When creative pieces come together, the possibilities are endless! Our share today is a perfect example of just that. Combining our Wedding Client Welcome Packet and Client Care Cards, Chris Cornwell of Chris Cornell Photographer found the perfect combination for a custom product. Chris writes, "I had been planning a wedding "BOOKLET" for months and finally had a chance to put it together. I knew I wanted something that would "WOW" new wedding clients and also serve as an informational guide to everything they needed to know. Prior to this, I have been putting forms and pdfs together and they were not that attractive. The Wedding Client Welcome Packet now gives me the chance to have something beautiful to present to my awesome new clients that they would actually be excited to receive. It's like they thumb through it and WANT to read it! In it, I can include everything I need them to know such as suggestions for beauty, for the wedding day, etc. Instead of having different cards, flat or folded, I consolidated the information in one booklet and add a couple of extra pages for other information. It's perfect for me. I have ONE book to put together and keep up with. I customized the Accordion mini book with my images, add color and voila! Perfect gift! Utilizing a few elements from other templates also dresses up the pages. So easy. So customizable. So professional."

Dear Ashley and Graham circa 2008,
Your business will not live and die by social media. You're going to be tempted to put more time into Facebook and Instagram than you do into in-person relationships because it will feel like that's what everyone else is doing; it will feel like the only way to keep up. Resist that temptation. Resist the urge to jump on the ever changing hamster wheel of social media. When you get on that hamster wheel it will feel like you're running as fast as you can and getting nowhere. And that's exactly where sinking unscheduled, unintentional time into social media will get you: nowhere.
Next to framed art, albums are a favorite, no-brainer product you should be offering every client. Albums are the one product that truly stands the test of time and will be treasured for generations to come. Not long ago, album design went a bit “photographers-gone-wild” with acrylic, metal, and even fur covers. Remember that panoramic ultra-wide album fad?
Luckily the tide has turned back to favoring a classic, luxury presentation.

That could be about 70% of my off season. The time a friend introduced me to Game of Thrones was the most epic two months of my life (sorry adulthood). BUT, the keyword in that first sentence is “could be”. My biggest love during off season is stepping out of my living room for a travel adventure.
