Wedding Photography - Improvements

For the longest time, I've had a very simple package (if you can even call it that) for weddings. I shoot as a supplement to my full-time job, so I try to keep things pretty simple. Lately I've been wanting to branch out and make my wedding package more appealing, so I looked into some extras I could add on. One of those is a USB drive with a gorgeous custom case. This will come with the base wedding price at no extra charge, which means EVERY BRIDE from here on out will get one.

As much as I would love to push more prints, I know how important it is to be able to flip through all of the images from your wedding day. The little forgotten images that I stumble upon are the ones that make me smile (like me and Rhett booking it through the rain), not necessarily the posed ones that I have printed.  I wanted a way to give these images to the couple in an attractive way that they could display instead of a cd to be lost in the desk drawer for 2 years. When I came across these cases, I knew this was what I would want for my own wedding photos!

The case is about the size of a double disc cd case with a magnetic closure and foam inside to hold the USB drive securely in place. The drive has the couple's name engraved on one side and my logo on the other. It's simple, but it's exactly what I was looking for as far as image delivery. I'm so excited about offering these that I'm running a special on my wedding package! For the next five weddings that I book, I'm offering a FREE engagement session, or if engagement photos aren't needed, $100 off of another product.

I'm also doing gifts for referrals now, so if you refer me for a wedding or portrait session you'll get a gift card to your choice of local restaurant or store!

I know that's a lot of business info, but I just had to share! I'm so excited about the changes I'm making, and I just feel so energized and refreshed when I work on this stuff. My friend Lauren got me started when she encouraged me to work on a business plan. Just writing everything down and doing the math really got me going, and I've been on a roll!
