Gift Vouchers, Updated Albums and the Photography Show.

I recently shared a story on my FaceBook page about a survey of the costs couples regret splurging on for their wedding day; I’m pleased to say that the Photography wasn't one of them! But I’m well aware that wedding costs can soon ramp up: I had to sell my beloved Suzuki to help pay for our wedding!  It’s with that in mind that I’ve just launched a gift voucher scheme that can help couples ease the financial burden of their big day.  Take a look at the ‘Gift Certificates' page, under the ‘Weddings’ menu, where there are full instructions.

The vouchers can be used against the photographic coverage of the day, or an already popular option is to help spread the costs for one of my luxury wedding albums.

Speaking of which, I had chance to meet up with my album suppliers this week (the fantastic Loxley Colour) at the annual Photography Show at the NEC.  I had a good look at their 2017 album line up, and I can tell you these books are stunning – with really thick lay-flat pages that exude quality and show images at their very best.  I have actually altered my offerings slightly since the show, as one of my options included a break between pagesthat stopped images covering a full two-page spread – so I’ve swapped that out for a similar design with a seamless join – perfect for wide shots of all the guests, or a panoramic image of the couple at their wedding venue.

I also had the chance to watch some interesting talks from several photographic luminaries, the likes of Joe McNally (twice!), Clive Arrowsmith, Nick Dunmur and Hannah Couzens – all giving expert advice on technique, equipment, or business.  If you’re in to photography at all, it’s well worth a day out and will be back next March.
