A thank you to Carmen!

A favorite client came into my office this morning with the finished photos from her daughter’s wedding that we did back in July, I have been looking forward to seeing these because they were an adorable couple who are very photogenic and I am getting ready to do my next’s years ad campaign. She had her computer with all the photos as well as actual prints and what she called her “brag book”, I was intrigued! The book was a 10×10 hardcover layout of her favorite pictures from her daughter’s wedding and it was adorable! It had all kinds of cute sayings and was personalized with names and dates, I assumed her photographers had made it for her but she told me she had made it herself. Of course I had to know the how’s and why’s! Apparently she went to a website called Shutterfly and was able to do an entire layout page by page as well as add her own colors, sayings and tags! I had to check it out for myself and OMG!!!!!  I love this!! It’s great for super creatively impaired people like myself who wish we had the patience for scrapbooking but get fed up after 2 minutes of pasting and glitter! You can click and drag until your heart’s content creating a unique and personal book but you don’t actually have to do the hard part (putting it together). I love websites that let you pay someone else to creatively put together the things you can’t.  Shutterfly is easy to use and I recommend it for anyone looking to add a personal touch to their wedding pictures.  Check them out at www.shutterfly.com

  1. WOW!!!! Brooke you are amazing! First I would love to say THANK YOU! for your kind words. I am so impressed and continue to be impressed by everything you do and have done to make our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I do not know where to begin to tell you what Farina’s meant to our family. Most importantly what a special person you are to work with Brooke. So generous and willing to help at anytime. I cannot say enough about your kindness. We were made to feel like we were your only client. I was shocked to find out that you were also planning your own wedding. CONGRATS! You never let on and we never felt put off. It was always about how you can make our daughter’s wedding the best it could be. We were so pleased with our decision to go with Farina’s from everyone and everything involved. We couldn’t have been more satisfied. I know you have been doing this for a while and it shows. You are great at what you do! We wish you continued success.


  2. Thank you for your kind words!!! I do love my job and I am glad that it shows!!! Thank you for allowing me the pleasure of helping you plan such a special event.
    I hope we can work together in the future!
