Building A Brand Voice | PNW Wedding Photographer | Something Minted

"Your brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room." -Jeff Bezos

In times filled with information-saturation, it's hard to find your voice and build a brand that speaks to it. But with no other person in this world like you, every experience refines our talents and how we serve others. Business is really just offering our gifts to the people who need them!

Here's a guide to discover those gifts:

Problem you solve: 
Ex. I help clients relive the best times each time they pick up a photograph.
Experience that lead you to it: 
Ex. The desire to hold on to feelings of togetherness in my marriage on the days spent apart from my husband. Photographs (and putting pen to paper through journaling & writing love notes) are how I keep connected to him.
Who you help: 
Ex. Couples whose weddings are held close to home, close to heart (and any destination love takes them!)
How you uniquely solve it: 
Ex. By creating reminders of love through light-filled photographs & client gifts that continue to celebrate the greatest promise.
Now speak it: 
Ex. “I’m Shelby, a PNW based wedding photographer who serves couples wherever love finds them. My husband and I moved across the country & back during our first years of marriage, spending much time apart. Photographs became a way to feel together despite any distance. I’m comfortable with making plans and changing them, always finding ways to celebrate along the way! As a wedding photographer I create connection and light-filled reminders of love.

By taking this guide and writing in your own examples, you are beginning to build your brand voice. Adding something to the world only you can because it's your heart story. Share this post with someone building their brand, because a little encouragement goes a long way!

Las Brisas Resort Wedding | Lauren and Peter | Ixtapa, Mexico

Set against warm sands and the Sierra Madre del Sur Mountains, an experience wholly unique found us for Lauren and Peter's destination wedding at Las Brisas, Ixtapa!

After watching her grandparents step in as witnesses to a wedding on that very beach, the dream to someday be married there became a wish of her own. And when a little girl's dream becomes a reality more incredible than imagined, your heart skips a beat right along with hers!

Picture a place marked by traditional palapas and terracotta; add in sweeping views of the Pacific and the kind of light these two bring to the world and you've got a recipe for magic:
