Gifts From Wedding Photographers
Don’t ask me what I think of my engagement pictures !! It’s almost like asking Hitler about Jews during the world war. Kuki hasn’t heard the end of it… poor him. I feel almost bad to tell him off each time… so either or will happen. Either I will get over the fact that he has sleepy eyes in all our pictures… OR he will get over the fact that he is never going to hear the end of that story !! LOL
Of course, I was mighty irritated at our engagement pictures photographer.. he made up do all these couply pictures which are so ANTI- what I blog about. And then he sent over a couple of hundred pictures of which he wanted us to choose a couple to make the final cut.
And then he did. And eventually with all the colour correction etc – we have a set of beautiful pictures in one album… But he only put it in a fancy bag and delivered. I was all happy, until I came across this BOX of chocolates !!
Wedding photographers sending gifts to their clients? Granted, I'm not married yet, but I never knew this was common practice. Maybe it isn't. But photographer, Jasmine Star, who also happens to be my friend of a friend of a friend, knew of other photographers who gave their clients Dom Perignon, a framed 8x10, and cookies upon the couple's return from their honeymoon. So she started sending out boxes of personalized chocolates to her clients, packaged up sweetly with custom photo paper. What a thoughtful thing to do.
