Desktop publishing. It’s the best, am I right?
OK, I get it: I may be in the minority with how excited I get when I can hop into InDesign, throw down some text boxes, pop in a few photos, and make a document that is just as pretty as it is informative. This has been one of my favorite ways to communicate with my clients; even within that first email correspondence from the initial inquiry, couples can expect can expect a 38-page online magazine that explains the Kayla Lee Photography Experience. After booking, couples who invest in the complete wedding experience will receive an actual, physical, almost 100-page KLP book that helps with all things wedding. I love being able to discuss all the aspects of your big day with you in this way.
My goals for the month of May are related to this, and are two-fold:
1. Update the current KLP magazine. Once a year, I like to go through an older copy and make sure that everything I spell out in it is up-to-date and still applicable for my clients. While some elements are classic (Veil shots! Details! Family formals!), some things do change and need to be addressed (for example, I switched gallery companies this year, so I may need to tweak my download instructions so you know exactly how to access your images once they are delivered). It is also nice to go through and update the work that is featured in this guide to best reflect my current style of shooting. It’s just a nice way to keep everything the best and most helpful for you.
2. Create a new guide for elopement photography. I have recently fallen deeper into love with elopements, so much so I have scaled my senior bookings back to make room for them. While I have blog posts that apply to any bride and groom, I want to make something specific for those of you who book for elopement coverage. I want to create a resource for you to be able to have your most frequent questions answered and feel just as special as any bride (because you ARE just as special and your wedding day is just as blessed as the next!). I want to create something just for you to get you even more excited and prepared to say “I do!”
As I type this, I feel they might be a bit lofty for one month, but you are worth it so I am going to give it a go! I will let you know how it works out!!
APRIL UPDATE: I have like two pages left of my thesis. My “final” draft revealed a couple holes that needed a liiiiiitle bit more research. I am shooting for a July defense, so we are in a good place!
