Creative Marketing Ideas for Photographers

It is so much fun to see how photographers & creatives from various industries are using our designs to market themselves in a way that sets them apart. We are blown away by this photographer's marketing materials! Aren't they gorgeous?!

If you're getting married in Chicago or anywhere in the near vicinity, Caitlin Lisa is your girl. We're obsessed with her work and almost peed ourselves with excitement when Caitlin shared these photos of her design materials. Caitlin turned one of our wedding day timelines into her own unique trifold design (genius!) and includes her magazine template as part of a welcome packet, as shown below. From her consistent editing style to the selection of photos used throughout her marketing materials, you can tell how much thought she puts into her work. Everything about these pieces have been customized by Caitlin to match her already beautiful branding. We love the way she changed up the colors + fonts and added her own logo for a completely custom look.

Can we talk about this layflat for a second? Caitlin definitely knows how to make her couples feel special. These photos make me want to wrap every box, envelope, and piece of paper in our house with that silk ribbon. Come to think of it, succulents would make a great new client gift, too! Caitlin, you are brilliant. Thank you for sharing your unique marketing ideas with us! These are truly top-notch!


Ease wedding day stress by creating a timeline for your couples. Not only do they make adorable keepsakes, but they also keep vendors, friends, & family members on the same page the day of the wedding.


This customizable timeline lets you work with your couples and other vendors to ensure everything goes smoothly and that everyone is on time. Uncle Billy no longer has an excuse for being late to the rehearsal! We also love the idea of giving these to couples after their wedding as a thank you gift. There are so many different uses you can get out of a single design.
