We wanted to shout about being nominated three times in the past 12 months for the Wedding Industry Awards. Two of those nominations have been from this summer. It’s great to get that level of feedback from your customers and the recognition too.
We’ve somewhat neglected the blog over August, but don’t worry we haven’t forgotten you all. It’s been such a busy period for us. We’ll have some gorgeous weddings to show you here very soon.
This Saturday we’ll be in Nerja, Spain to shoot a wedding on Spain’s central south coast. It’ll be our third international shoot and we’re super excited about this one! Can’t wait to share the results.
At last weekends wedding the bride and groom hired a caricature artist to entertain the guests during the evening reception. Josh and I had the pleasure of having our faces drawn and we thought it would be a laugh to share the end result with you so you can all laugh at us! We will soon be updating our profile pictures on our About Us page, so you’ll have a better idea of how we really look…
This year we’ve moved away from DVDs and switched to USB memory sticks. Our branded DVD boxes did look fab, so we want to make sure we do something special with the USB sticks for our wedding photography customers. We’ve been experimenting with various designs. We’re particularly pleased with this design. Let us know your thoughts.
Our new logo and website are live! We’ve replaced the old Ben Goode Photography logo with a new minimalist monogram. Hopefully is a lot more memorable, it’s certainly more versatile for us to use. The previous website did a fantastic job, and feedback on the design from customers was still very positive. However, since it’s last revision is 2011 we wanted to change a few things. Our biggest objectives were to display our images larger and to show off more of our recent work. Other changes in 2014 include our new simplified wedding photography package. It’s the first time we’ve increased our prices in over three years, not by much though, and we hope you all agree it’s still a great deal. There are a few little jobs to be done to finish the site. Over the coming week we’ll be adding more wedding shoots to our portfolio page. Note that posts on our blog prior to 2014 may not function as originally designed. Do let us know your thoughts.
Today work has begun on the new Ben Goode Photography website. We’ve established the overall layout design. There are still plenty of images to add, and we haven’t yet finalised the new logo design. We’re aiming to have the new site live by the end of the month.
So you may have noticed things have been quite here on the Ben Goode Photography blog. That’s not to say we’ve been quiet though! We’ve had a super busy year with many wonderful weddings throughout the country. We’re currently working on a new logo and website, which we’ll be launching in 2014. We’ve also streamlined the focus of the business and will solely be photographing weddings from the new year. Keep your eyes peeled for our new look in the new year.
Afternoon all, I’ve just realised I haven’t yet written a post on the blog in 2013 yet! It’s nearly the end of March already. Where does the time go?! I’ve got two wedding sneak peeks to show you, but before that I wanted to say we were recently featured on Staggered (the wedding blog for grooms) in their Real Grooms section. It’s worth a look: www.iamstaggered.com/realgrooms/real-grooms-stuart-bennett/.
If you’re a regular reader, you may know that today I’m flying out to Vietnam to photograph a wedding – a week long international wedding shoot. I can’t wait! Check back soon to see the photographs.
