So...one day...(lets hope sooner than later)...we hope to have lots of potential newly engaged clients asking for our photography services. And for that initial (getting-to-know) meeting, we want to be able to bring the couple into our home where we'll have an area set aside with a nice cushy couch, coffee table, and photos on our walls that help showcase our work. Currently, any meetings we have with our friends/potential clients are held at an outside public space...like a coffee shop. But nothing speaks more personally to me if I were looking for my wedding photographer, than to step into their home office and be offered home made coffee.
And that's the experience I want to create for my brides....and grooms I guess. :) So...yes...I started this entry talking about planning and that's what we kinda did. We took some of our favorite shots we've taken thus far, and professionally printed 8X10 sized prints we'll eventually frame and hang in our client studio. These are just to start with, but we're proud of our work, so printing these off was the right thing to do.
Oh and we also printed off a huge wedding photo we'll hang in our living room. We bought the frame ages ago and finally was able to fill the frame with one of our favorite wedding photos.
I'm so happy with our printing results. It was definitely worth going through a professional online lab rather than taking our prints to Costco or Walgreens to print. The lustre paper we printed on was amazing! Too bad these pics can't convey that...but trust me! :)
