I am a wedding photographer of all things classic and timeless! I strive to capture images that will stand the test of time. I want my brides to still love their images 50 years from now, and not cringe because I captured something trendy or what was "in" during that time.
If your current brand is not attracting your dream clients, it's time to invest in a rebrand! I think it's tempting to do just a logo or mood board for your business, but, by fully rebranding, I have invested in my business and I know it will last me 10x longer than just a logo ever could.
If I had any regrets with my business it would be that I didn't re-brand soon enough. Branding is one of the most important aspects of your whole business. YES it's a huge financial commitment and investment, but it's 110% worth every penny I invested.
I think that it is really important for my brand to reflect the type of photography service I provide to my clients and also attract the type of clients I want. I want to reflect more of a higher end, boutique feel while still showing my clients that you will get a personal, exclusive experience.
It's a big expense, but it's also a one time expense and Katie will work tirelessly until you are 100% happy. Obviously you are considering a rebranding for a reason and if you were happy with where your brand was at you wouldn't even be considering it so bite the bullet and do it.
Katie was an absolute gem. She was quick with responses, revisions and dead-lines. Never have I worked with someone that was more on point with what I was envisioning. It was an absolute dream to work with Ribbon and Ink. It was an A+ 5* experience!
This is the one investment you will never regret. This day and age we have such a saturated market that if we do not stand out, we will lose clients. And not only standing out, but attracting the right client. I knew Katie was going the right direction when I saw my mood board.
My dad was a very successful business owner while I was growing up. Slowly I watched his business get slower and slower throughout the years because he didn't keep up with the times (basically, the internet). I want to come across different than my competition. I want to stand out.
Katie was so highly organized that she easily kept me on track...and because I have limited tech experience she graciously helped me to navigate all the required final tasks required to go live.
Katie is so thorough in how she gets to know her clients and makes sure that your new brand is a reflection of who you are as a business owner. It is definitely scary to hand over such a personal project to someone else, but Katie made sure I was involved with every little change she was making, and in the end, I can't imagine having a more perfect brand.
We like to say we tell love stories. Our goal is to preserve the fleeting moments of a wedding day with authenticity, beauty and reverence. Our couples are dear to us, and it's never lost on us what we've been tasked to do.
The wedding industry is a very saturated market. With Katie helping to define an ideal client, wedding venue type, color palette, mission statement, direction of pricing among so many other things, I realized that I do have something special and unique to offer potential clients. That clear vision and confidence means everything to me!
I felt as though I had a friend who cared just as much about my business as I do. There were things I hadn't even thought of that Katie did & they have already helped tremendously. I felt stumped trying to verbalize who my ideal client was. Katie brought it to life & I am still not sure how she managed to take exactly what was in my head and lay it all out for me.
My old brand was beautiful, don't get me wrong but it wasn't ME. It was just something beautiful that sat on the computer screen that I couldn't relate to. I would say to anyone on the fence about rebranding with Ribbon & Ink to DO IT! Don't hesitate! Just do it. The process, the price, the wait, it's all worth it. And you won't regret it!
When I stumbled upon Katie's website, I didn't care about the price, because I could tell through her website that everything she could do for me, was going to be exactly what I wanted. She literally does EVERYTHING. She listened to my reasons why, she created a brand that fit me perfectly that NO ONE ELSE HAS, and most importantly...she genuinely CARED about me and making sure my brand reflected that. She is worth EVERY penny.
Do you want to waste TIME - energy and more "going in circles" with something you are not an expert in? Would you want a "family friend with a camera" shooting your wedding? Why would you do the same to yourself with branding? Spend your time doing what you love - shooting weddings, and let Katie show the world who you truly are!
Katie has your best interests at heart and she is there to help you realize your most authentic self and voice in a smart and visually stunning way. She is both brains and beauty...a complete package that delivers nothing less for you. She goes above and beyond and no matter what I asked (big or small), Katie was there to support my decisions, helping me grow as a business owner through the process.
I would tell anyone contemplating on doing full branding with Ribbon & Ink to stop thinking about it and just do it! Katie is spectacular! She walks you through her entire design process. You never feel out of the loop on your own rebranding. She does everything to make sure that your brand represents YOU! Best decision I have made for DTE!
I am so happy with this end result, and feel like my brand speaks for me in so many ways. The hard work is done! Now, I just have to maintain that brand and keep consistent, which feels like the easy part since my brand has such a distinct look and style! Thank you so much, Katie!
My new brand will most certainly attract my ideal client. My ideal clients are brides and grooms who are infatuated with their other half, southern in their roots and in their style, and understand the value of great photos. My new brand has elements of that unique southern charm we girls in the south love. It's romantic. It's soft and it's bridal! It's just perfect!
I never really knew which direction I wanted to go in the first few years of business. It wasn't until I started really thinking about my target 'bride' did I finally begin to piece together a more cohesive aesthetic in my mind. My brand now truly represents not only my ideal bride but it reflects my personal taste. Also, Katie is simply wonderful and so patient! She was such a great find!!
After I launched my website - I felt like a brand new business. There’s no better feeling than knowing you can provide your couples with the best possible experience - all around. If you’re on the fence, I encourage you to take a look at your current brand and ask yourself if it really represents you and the experience you want to provide. I can finally charge what I need to knowing that my brand truly shows my worth and that alone is worth it.
You guys. When Katie finished my website, I was in shock and I literally could not stop "oooing and ahhhing" as I looked throughout my site with the biggest grin on my face. I couldn't believe it was mine! She truly out-did herself on this one! Throughout my process with Katie, she was attentive to what I wanted, patient, and very responsive. If there is anyone looking to create a brand for you, I 100% would recommend Katie!!
I was a little intimidated by the price, however looking back, I would spend that again in a heart beat! I signed up with Katie during the busiest season of my year which was a mistake on my part, however, Katie was so understanding. If you're looking for someone to trust with creating the perfect brand for your business, Katie is the one!
Katie did such a great job nailing the whole vibe and feel of my brand from the start. I knew exactly what I wanted and had what I wanted my brand to look like in mind, and she totally got it!
We have already been raving to my clients and other people in my industry about Katie and her work.... we have been getting huge feedback on how beautiful the new site is! We are so excited about it!! WE LOVE IT!! She's the best!
Full branding is an investment, but I think it was so worth it! Rebranding with Katie was a full experience and I really enjoyed how thorough she is through the entire process! She was super available and responsive via email, which I really appreciated. She took the time to refine and revise until I really loved my new brand and I really appreciated her! Her work speaks for itself - you won't be disappointed!
