The Client Welcome Gift

Every year my goal is to make CGP better: in my photography skill, in the images I deliver to clients, and in the entire client experience. And one of the biggest components that I had planned to boost my clients' wedding photography experience this year was a wedding guide magazine!

Man oh man, was this a labor of love! Over the last several months I created this 40 page magazine filled with all the tips I like to send my brides via email throughout their engagement and a ton of other helpful information for planning the perfect wedding day. And when I finally got to hold the test print in my hands a couple months ago, I couldn't believe how pretty it was! This baby beats an online PDF any day!

I packaged the wedding guide magazine with chocolate (a wedding planning necessity), a candle, and a handwritten note, and voila! The Client Welcome Gifts were finished! 

Since my sweet 2016 couples just received these packages last week, I'm not really sure it's fair to call them Client Welcome Gifts, but I'm just glad I got the magazine finished before wedding season got going! And in the future, I'll be able to send them a little sooner after clients book than I did this year.

I hope these magazines are really helpful to my couples as they plan their dream weddings, from the engagement session to the timeline to their wedding reception!
