The Bridal Soiree is Coming! {Houston Wedding Show}

The New Promo Card

Our brand new 5×7 promo cards, prints, slideshows, and everything else is ready for the “Before you say I do!” Bridal Soiree put on by Weddings In Houston magazine this Sunday! January 25, 2009 from 1-6pm at The Houstonian. Wedding experts, a runway fashion show, and a champagne reception! I’ll be there, will you? Tickets are $18 in advance, and $20 at the door.

The show special isn’t listed on the cards though – I’ll be passing that out exclusively at the show!

A little note on designing these cards: a lot of people think you shouldn’t put your pricelist out there. I’ve even gone back and forth on this. But then I started thinking about it recently – in the digital age we are in now, we all want information, and we want it now. I remember when I was planning for my wedding 5 years ago, it was so frustrating to have to email photographers and other vendors, ask for their prices, and then wait to hear back from them. If they were out of my budget, I didn’t want to bother them — or I wanted to figure out a way to make it work with my budget!*

You may have noticed if you have poked around this site a lot, I’m ok with putting a lot of information out there. I’ve always gotten excellent feedback on that from my clients and how much they appreciate it. So it just makes sense to do it with my pricing too! I’ll be adding the full pricelist to the site next week. (The card has an abbreviated pricelist – I couldn’t fit everything on there!)

The photo used in the cards is one from Brooke’s bridal session at Discovery Green and Eleanor Tinsley Park in downtown Houston. It was *so* hard to pick just one photo! I finally decided to let Flickr pick for me – this is one of my most popular wedding photos from 2008 over there!

We also have a new album coming for the show from Tricia & Daniel’s Wedding in The Woodlands. It is going to be stunning! It is a 12×12 book with a beautiful red cover, and a parent’s album coffee table book companion. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!

Of course, I had to create one for Boudoir Mon Cheri as well! It is done in matching blue, since my advertisement with Weddings in Houston magazine is branded that way. Elaine commented that this was one of her favorite boudoir shots, so I decided it was perfect for the card!

As someone in the midst of wedding planning AND someone that loves to do as much research as I can before contacting people, I HATE it when vendors don’t have their prices online, for pretty much the reasons you mentioned. I want to be able to look online, see samples of someone’s work, and then see exactly how much they cost.

I hate having to email or call people and wait for a response, only to find that it’s way outside my budget, or that they don’t do what I want.

So count me as a fan of published prices!

Great work Christine. I love how clean and clear your pricing cards are. No fuss and confusion, just straight to the point. I am sure that your clients appreciate your thoughtfulness. Rock on!
