Inside Real Studios: Head Over Heels Wedding Photography

Inside Real Studios: Head Over Heels Wedding Photography

My goal in renovating my studio was to provide better customer service, superior products and a more streamlined process for my bride and grooms. I use many Design Aglow products in my studio to achieve this beginning with the Big Picture Planner to keep me organized.

In every package I include the digital images from the weddings on the glass USB packaged in the presentation boxes and branded bags.

What The Pros Are Saying: Heirloom Portfolio Boxes

“These photos, this box… My grandchildren will pull these out of the closet one day and say ‘THAT was my grandma!’ Thank you so much for this, Nichole. This will truly become a real family heirloom.” ~ K

When I was bored or wanting to reminisce, I would go there and search through them, trying to dig up memories that I had already forgotten from my first ten years of this life.

Alyssa of Alyssa Grace Photography reached out to share her success with offering Design Aglow products in her studio.

Creating A Defined Brand Experience With Brandy Swartz Photography

Creating A Defined Brand Experience With Brandy Swartz Photography

The day I discovered Design Aglow, I felt as if I had finally found my long-lost friend. I started my photography journey at the age of 17 with a Canon Rebel, minimal knowledge and a big heart. The twists and turns of educating myself in this adventurous career was hard work but rewarding. However, one of the areas I always struggled with was bringing a particular brand to life. My business was growing but the clarity of a defined marketing plan, including branding and packaging, seemed light years away. This was when the photography Gods sent me Design Aglow.

The 5x7 Keepsake Print & USB Boxs the perfect way to present my custom USB and prints.

What The Pros Are Saying: Branding & Style Guide

What The Pros Are Saying: Branding & Style Guide

Today's share is about our Studio Success Guide: Branding & Style, and comes from Elizabeth Williamsberg from Elizabeth Williamsberg Photography. 

"I had literally just moved my photography business 2000 miles away, and when I reopened my business, I knew I needed a fresh, new brand for my fresh, new location. I hired a graphic designer to make a new logo, brand sheet, and website, but when she asked me for ideas, I had no idea what I wanted or where to start. She came up with some initial ideas, but none of them were what I was looking for--even though I wasn't particularly sure what I was actually looking for.
