Lately there have been few blog posts and fewer posts on my wall, but I’m still here…..
At the start of the year there’s never many weddings or portrait opportunities, brides have realised that its wayyyyy to cold to get married these months and as for portraits, everyone has had a mad rush to get these fulfilled as Christmas Gifts a few months ago.
This break gives me a great opportunity to complete album designs, and I spend a lot ( and I mean A LOT) of time on my computer (often with a ‘gone cold’ cup of tea on front of me) as I engross myself fully into design and layouts and therefore quickly complete albums and get them back to my couples.
I’ve also been meeting lots of new couples who are getting married and taking bookings, which is always really exciting!
As you will see on my facebook page I’ve been sharing some of the bridal fayres which I will be attending. I find that for me, attending bridal fayres is a great method of advertising and an opportunity for each couple to meet me and have a chat, which you don’t get in a magazine or newspaper advert. So if any of you want to save organising an appointment to come to the studio or meet me, come along to one of these fayres, where I’ll have everything in hand to chat to you about.
I’ve decided to focus on attending more fayres this year and therefore anyone who hasn’t confirmed their Wedding photography with me, must do so ASAP.
I want to avoid anyone being disappointed,(and it has happened before) as I may assume after a length of time with no contact that you are not going ahead with the date and offer it to another couple.
No booking is complete until the deposit is paid and the contract is signed and returned to me.
I’m gonna sound like i’m on a bit of a rant now, but this also applies to any outstanding ‘vouchers’
The vouchers have an expiry date and although I’m not unreasonable and will extend it if needs be, this will only be the case if you contact me and let me know you need it extended before the voucher expires and at that stage I would ask you to book a date for the shoot.
As wedding season is fast approaching, I’ve taken lots of bookings for engagement shoots over the next few weeks, and I’ll be sure to share and post them for you all to see.
Spring seems to be finally upon us so if you have booked your wedding with me for this year, get in touch and we can organise a time to get your pre wedding session completed.
It would seem very inappropriate to complete this blog without a photograph in it somewhere so i’ll end it with this pic…. I don’t really watch TV, don’t follow any soaps but this has been my guilty pleasure this past few weeks, whilst editing and designing indoors I have grown to enjoy the odd episode of Coronation Street and on one occasion found myself ‘shouting’ at the TV at the stupidity of this woman. For anyone who doesn’t watch Coronation Street I’m gonna share some advice so that you avoid ever getting yourself into the pickle Gail has………………………………………. NEVER write your bank account login and password in the back of your diary!
Have a great weekend everyone! xx
