One of my goals for this off season was to finally create a wedding guide of my own. I love that fellow wedding photographers have been implementing these for their businesses, and after seeing a few that turned out amazing, I decided to create one for my 2015 and 2016 clients. I have always focused on blogging lots of helpful information for couples planning their weddings (my own and any others who found their way here to the blog), but I realized that not everyone has time to browse through blog posts. A wedding guide is a beautifully branded way to share all of the things my clients need to know to get the most out of their experience with us in one neat little package. It also has the added benefit of being really pretty! And seeing your work printed out never gets old;)
I created my guide using Photoshop and a template I bought from Design by Bittersweet on Etsy. The clean, modern lines of the template caught my eye immediately! Once I had the design in place, I ordered a sample of the book from MagCloud. I HIGHLY suggest ordering one as a proof first, before you order a ton of them. This way you can be sure everything prints out exactly the way you hoped it would. I’m glad I did, because after seeing it in person, I decided to add even MORE pages (to what was already a 60 page book) because I really wanted the book to feel like a thick, glossy magazine.
All in all, I’m happy that this project is almost ready to be wrapped up completely and that I will be able to get these out to my couples soon! I am really excited to share all of this information and inspiration!
