Fall is to a photographer what April is to an accountant. The leaves turn colors, the holidays approach, and all of a sudden everyone remembers family pictures, senior portraits, or emergency pre-holiday promotional images. Typically, Michigan photographers are still editing September weddings too! It’s the most popular month in Michigan to be married and it always books entirely full (for me).
In my case, video work takes up a large portion of my desk time; and so even my summer wedding are still rotating in the queue for video production.
But I can’t help taking just a moment to post and remind everyone that the bridal shows are coming to Southwest Michigan, and with them, some of the greatest sales and specials of the year!!!
Last year, at January’s 2017 Southwest Michigan Bridal Show (hosted at Wings Stadium by Bert’s Bakery), I gave away two $1000 gift certificates offered as door prizes, and I adjusted my two most popular packages! For “The Romantic”, I left the price point the same but included two extra hours of coverage; and for “The Starlet” I adjusted the 8 hours of coverage to all day and dropped the price by $450! These two collections were available first-come-first-served to 10 brides only, and ONLY available the DAY of the show, though I did allow a hold-the-offer option for those willing to put down $100 and follow up within a week for the details of the contract and the remainder of the deposit. It completely sold out.
Be ready! I’m aiming to sell out this year too!!! I haven’t created the flash sale details yet, and would love to hear your thoughts! In 2016, we offered a complimentary highlight video add on (for the first 10 brides to sign) and in 2015 we had a complimentary album upgrade (for the first 10 brides). Let us know what you’re dreaming of so we can give you a chance to win what you love! Weddings have my heart!!!
