When Chris+I were looking for wedding photographers during our planning phase, I must have searched past 50 pages of Google searches. And each photographer’s site I went into, one of the first places I’d go immediately is their blog. I loved checking out their blog posts because there is where most photographers store their recent work. Besides, blog posts also allowed me to get a sense of who these people behind the lenses were.
Now as wedding photographers, we know how important it is to update our blog frequently. It’s a constant labor of love but when we launched our new website earlier this month, we wanted to do something a little different for our clients. So without further ado, we’d like to introduce the world to Cindi+Chris’ Personal Wedding Preview (PWP) sites!

When our wedding was over and done with, we couldn’t wait to view our pictures. And I’m sure our brides and grooms feel the same way. Raise your hand if you were constantly on Facebook checking the photographer’s walls or refreshing their blog every hour, on the hour! Well, that’s what I did and as a previous bride, I can understand that anxiety. Chris+I wanted to come up with a way to package our clients’ first view of their photos complete with a big red bow and our Personal Wedding Preview sites were what we came up with.
These sites are personally designed and comes from our hearts. We write a message to our brides and grooms, rather than talking about them in the third person (we do that too…but that’ll be on our blog!:)). The photos can be viewed easily at one’s own pace and the slideshow can be played without leaving the site. Essentially, the Personal Wedding Preview site is a one stop shop for our clients to share their perfect day with friends and family.
Our blog is there for potential clients to view our latest work. But the Personal Preview Sites are specially for the bride and groom that’s antsy on pins and needles waiting to relive their wedding day. With that said though, there are plenty of new and exciting posts to come on our blog and it’s a personal goal of ours to not only post our photography, but also allow our potential clients into our lives a little bit. So stay tuned for some more personal little touches that’ll be incorporated into our blog soon.
