General Blog Update | What’s happening in the world of Victoria Jane Photography?

We’ve been Busy, Busy, Busy!!!

We have been incredibly busy over the summer months and it’s still manic now! We were fortunate enough to be asked to photograph a large number of Warwickshire weddings in July, August, September and October. Of course, when you’ve got two photographers attending it means you’ve got double the number of images to review and edit afterwards! It all takes time and that’s what we’ve been working on until the early hours every night in order to provide all of our clients with their images and albums as soon as possible ….. but without doing a rushed job! We are now working on designing albums for some of our recent brides and grooms and we are still editing images from other recent weddings. We are on top of the work though, so if you are waiting to see your photos from your recent wedding, photo shoot, family or corporate event, don’t worry, it won’t be long!

Our New Look!

The more observant among you may have noticed a slow switch to a new, cleaner and less fussy look. The header at the top of this blog site shows our new more modern simplified logo and colour-scheme. These will now appear of our new business cards, letter heads, price lists, emails, flyers and leaflets etc. hopefully, we’ll be more easily recognised and remembered in future. Our main website will be our next target for change – probably a project for early 2011 !

Fantastic Autumn Photoshoot Offers

We’re introducing two offers related to our family photo shoots:

The first is our standard photo shoot in your home. Priced at a very competitive £75 it now allows you to have a photo shoot in your home for around an hour to an hour and a half and then we will edit a good range of images and provide you with good sized prints of your favourite three images free of charge (free prints are worth £36).

The second is our Premiere photo session in which we will spend around 4 hours with you and your family at your home or at a favourite local location of your choice. This might be a local park, play area, country house gardens etc. We will then spend many hours editing the images to provide you with a lovely selection of high resolution photos that on DVD with your own personal printing license granted. In addition, we’ll provide you with 10 large lustre prints (worth £120) free of charge.

Charity Support and Events

In the last two months we’ve done a photo shoot in Ikea for the Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee morning. We did photographs of families with young children and sold the photographs at an average of £4 each and we raised over £220 that we donated to Macmillan at the end of the day.

I also offered a £75 family photo shoot as a raffle prize for a charity event in support of Myton Hospice. the event was run by a local children’s dance troop who put on a lovely show last week and raised a lot of money for Myton hospice. I’ll be doing an autumn photo shoot for the winner soon!

So what’s coming up over the next few months?

We’ve still got some more wedding bookings – so that means consultations, discussions, visiting the venues and doing pre-wedding photo shoots as well as the weddings and editing afterwards. We are now designing several albums for recent couples who have now chosen their images for their albums. We’re also had plenty of enquiries for covering celebrations over the festive period and we’ve had some every interesting approaches from some corporate venues who we may be doing some work for (watch this space!)

Helpers!

We’ve been approached by several local schools who have requested that we take some of their students for photography work experience placements and we have had several approaches from photography students who want to work with us in order to gain real, practical experience. We will let you know when any decisions are made. If we agree to any of these things, of course, we will do them properly!

Meanwhile, we have had loads of enquiries for weddings next year and we already have double the number of confirmed bookings that we had this time last year! It looks like we’re set to get even busier! So – if you want to book us or if you know anyone who might be interested in booking us it’s better to contact us sooner than later!

  1. Hi Vicky,

    Great work, seems your very bussy but then again when you do such a great job as you guys do I am not surprised.

    Keep up the great work and have a fantastic 2011

    • Hi Paul, We do our best and hopefully this shows in the number of repeat customers and referrals we are getting. 2011 looks as though it’s going to be even busier because we’ve already got twice as many weddings booked and confirmed as we did at this time last year! Need more hours in the day! Thank you for your lovely comments. Vicky
