When a new couple books with me, not only do I get to add another couple of clients to my list, I get to add a couple of new friends to my family! That's why I love pampering my couples with a few surprises along the way. A couple months ago, I shared all about my welcome packages that I send to each new bride when they officially book with me. If you missed that post, you can read it first here. After an engaged couple books with me, the next step is finding a time for engagement portraits. I LOVE this time to get to know my couples' stories and help them get acquainted with my shooting style. But after the engagement session, I often don't see them again until the wedding which is usually several months away! I wanted to be able to send my couples a little something to let them know I'm thinking about them and to help them take some time away from the craziness of wedding planning to enjoy some time together, celebrating this season!
In comes "date-night-in-a-box." A new feature I'll be spoiling my 2020 couples with starting with weddings booked for next year! A month before the wedding is when we finalize all the wedding photography details, so I thought, why not also send some goodies to my couples to celebrate?! My vision for this box is that it will be a way for my couples to connect with one another and to focus on spending intentional time with one another before the wedding day. Keep scrolling to see all I'll include in my date night client gift boxes!
"Take some time to treat yourself to scrumptious appetizers or desserts from one of my favorite restaurants followed by a night at the movies. Afterward, come home, light a candle, and be transported to one of my favorite places-- the beach, with the smell of driftwood and sea salt filling the room as you open up a bag of sweet treats and write each other love letters to exchange on your wedding day!"
My hope is that when my couples receive this gift a few weeks before their wedding day, they'll be able to take a load off, open their Packlane custom branded box, choose a date night and head for The Cheesecake Factory and Regal, come home to one of my favorite Target candles and some Skinny-Dipped Almonds and be able to cherish a few moments together as they write. I am SO excited to start implementing these into my process and workflow, and I cannot wait to see what amazing memories my couples will be able to create with their date night boxes! :)
I love travel and adventure. I love seeing things from new perspectives. I love to find good food in exciting places. And I love making moments last for as long as possible.
