I'm excited to share with you a little but about what goes into my wedding packages! I use a wonderful online photo gallery called PASS to share all of my images. PASS allows my clients to instantly download all of their photos and to share the link to the online gallery with all of their friends and family. I will probably write a post soon that shares more information with you about PASS.
However, for wedding images, I like to do something extra special and personal! I still send my clients an online PASS gallery of all their wedding day images and I also mail them a package. In their package, I include a beautiful wooden USB with all of their photos. I decided to go with a USB instead of a CD because many people don't have CD drives on their computers any more and because... well they're just really pretty! I try very hard to provide my clients with beautiful packaging and products while staying within a tight budget.
In addition to the wooden USB, I also include 5x7 prints of a few of my favorite pictures from the wedding day. I like to give my clients a few prints because I think it shows them how beautiful their pictures are when they're printed. In this day and age, we have a tendency to keep everything electronically and on our computers and to never get anything printed. I want my clients to be encouraged to print out their wedding pictures and treasure them for years and years to come!
I also write my clients a thank you card and let them know (to all my future brides, this applies to you as well!) that if they tell their friends about me and one of their friends books me as their wedding photographer, I will send them a free 11x14" canvas of their favorite wedding picture!
I also include a business card so they can share my card with friends and family if they want. The very talented Emily Schneck recently designed my logo, business card, and gift cards, and I love them!
Finally, I wrap it all up and take it to the post office! I love putting together these little packages for my clients. I hope it brings a very personal touch to their wedding day photography and let's them know how much I appreciate their business and friendship.
