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
Carmen, I hope you get a chance to read this and thank you so much for the inspiration! I am already working on one for myself!
