We haven’t posted here in a while just because we’re so busy capturing your big days all around the world! We keep on growing and huge blogs like Pacific Weddings pick up on our work more often than ever. Check out the feature below:
Before the internet, photos were delivered through physical devices like CDs. Today photographers use online galleries to deliver photos because of how simple and efficient they are for both the photographer and the client. While many past deliverables have gone out of style, there is one physical product that still works as a handy photo storage tool - the USB drive.
Though we love using online galleries to deliver photos to our clients, we still offer USB drives to clients who want to use it as a storage method. Adding custom USBs to our photo packages has been something we have enjoyed doing and our clients love. That’s why we want to share three reasons why USB drives are a great product for photographers to add to their packages.
1. Increased Professionalism
As a client who is paying money for their photographer’s service, you expect to receive your photos in a professional manner. That’s why along with online galleries, USBs are the perfect deliverable for photographers to show their clients that they went the extra mile in presenting their photos to them.
We love adding a touch professionalism to our wedding packages with these wood style USB drives. Our clients adore them, and so do we!
2. An Excellent Representation of Your Brand
When we first started offering flash drives to our clients, we didn’t realize the impact it would have on our brand. Of course, we could hand out any simple plastic USB from the store to our clients, but a USB that’s customized with our brand name guarantees our clients will remember who took their photos.
Our flash drives are engraved with our logo in a clear black font that stands out against the light pine background. We’ve had many clients tell us that when their family and friends saw these flash drives they asked who “Yourdreamphoto” is, which proves that this is a great marketing tool for our brand.
3. A Beautiful Keepsake for Your Client
Every couple we have given these USB drives to see it as a cherishable keepsake from their wedding day. While printed photos are great to have physically in front of you, digital photos guarantee you can look through all your memories and share them with whomever you like.
When it comes to physical deliverables, photographers have used products like CDs for transferring digital photos in the past, but in reality, CDs aren’t as long-lasting as USBs. Especially since computers like Macs no longer have a disk drive built into them. This would make it impossible for clients that have computers without a disk drive to view photos from a CD. Unlike disk drives, USB ports are commonly found on all computers, which makes flash drives much more relevant than past physical delivery methods.

With the complicated steps that go into wedding planning, one of the biggest fears is skipping over an important detail. An overlooked vendor that ties a wedding together is the method of transportation. A look at the page of results for wedding transportation in San Francisco is enough to intimidate anybody! How are you supposed to know who to trust with this aspect of an important day?
We're here with three important tips on how to find the best wedding transportation in San Francisco for your needs.
1. Pay attention to details that matter
This might seem vague but look for red flags in the start of your search for transportation. First, any limo or party bus company in San Francisco with an ancient website isn't one to consider. If they can't create an easy to use web experience it doesn't bode well for their customer service. The same can be said about the modern features within the vehicle. Second, if you don't see any clues on their website that they specialize in weddings – move on. It's not worth the risk to trust an elegant wedding to a company that mainly deals with nights out and bar hopping.
2. Schedule an in-person tour
Asking if you can come look at vehicles before placing a deposit is a sure fire way to separate the good from the bad. Shady companies will avoid this at all costs! You're looking for transparency as it makes a big difference in their trustworthiness. When you look at a vehicle in person, you know exactly what to expect. No surprises on your big day!
3. View the contract
We always recommend signing contracts, and it's no different with transportation companies. The contract is where you will find tricky things like extra charges in the form of fuel and tip. There will be language about what they consider damage and how much they will charge the card on file. You don't want to end up getting charged a ridiculous amount for something as trivial as a missing stereo cord while you're on your honeymoon!
The wedding season is a busy one with SF Limo and Party Bus rentals. You want to be sure you have the best selection to choose from, so call ahead. With these three tips in mind, you're already ahead of the game with your wedding planning!
