Paris | Day 1

APRIL 25 | Our first afternoon in Paris, France! We got into the city at about 1:00pm. We were pretty whacked out from the time difference (espically my mom since she came from Seattle and not New York City). So it was pretty low-key, we explored our neighborhood of Le Marais + a little of the Louvre + somehow found ourselves at Palais Garnier (One of the Opéra National De Paris). All of these images were edited with a new Jessica Whitaker Preset that is coming soon. The black and white image was edited with "Loverboy" from my new Girls Chase Boys Lightroom preset pack. Scroll to the bottom of this post for my outfit details + links.  

Pants: Romwe ($20, good deal!), Top: Mr. Larkin, Shoes: Madewell (MY FAVS), Scarf: Madewell (sold out but here is one for $15!), Jacket is old TopShop, Earrings: Princess Polly, Lipstick: Mac 'Cream in Your Coffee' Sunglasses: Karen Walker (similar)

How To Use Client Video Testimonials In Your Photography Business

Today's video is on how you can use testimonials in your photography business, as well as how to ask your clients for them. Scroll down for the template! (NOTE: my website is coded to use all lowercase. so, please be sure to modify the template to your desired case, in my emails I use mixed case :)

Hello!

I just wanted to check in since our photo session!. I am updating my website testimonial page to include video content and am wanting to implement video testimonials. 

If you were happy with my services, I would love to receive a video testimonial I can use to further my business. It does not have to be anything fancy or feel produced. It can be recorded with your webcam or with a phone (vertical or horizontal is fine!) and doesn’t need to be edited. You can introduce yourself in the video, share what shoot we did, and talk about how your experience was.

If and when you film one, please send the file to me via this email thread, wetransfer, or over google drive. 

Please let me know if you are interested!

Thank you so much,

Jessica
