Splendid Sundays Volume 13Sunday, October 18, 2009
A handful of splendid finds and interesting tidbits from around the worldwide web:
*Laura Novak, founder of Strategy Avenue - a business resource for photographers, launched PhotoPrice this past week. It is the first iphone app created especially for wedding and portrait photographers and allows you to figure out your cost of goods sold (COGS) so that you know exactly how much money you actually make on each sale. The best part? It is only $4.99! Check it out here.
*Brides Magazine also released an iphone app recently, this one focusing on, well, the bride. From their press release: Users of Brides Dressing Room will browse a variety of wedding and bridesmaid dresses, and sort by silhouette, designer or price - then check availability, and schedule an appointment with a local bridal shop for consultations and fittings. They can also email a photo of a wedding gown or bridesmaid dress to friends to get their feedback. This app is free and you can read more about it on the Brides.com Wedded Bits blog.
*If you're on Twitter and feel like you're the only person in the world NOT at Bridal Market in New York this week, you can keep up on the action by following the #bridalfashionweek hashtag and/or following the ladies at Brides.com either on Twitter @Brides or with their hashtag #bridescomrunway. You can also follow London-based event designer Mark Niemierko, who I think may be my new favorite bridal market twitter correspondent.
*I had the pleasure of meeting the brilliant ladies, Jubilee Lau and Jean Marks, behind Wedding 360 this past week at Engage!09 Encore, and I am so excited about this education series they are putting on. Wedding 360 offers education and inspiration for both engaged couples and wedding professionals through two different types of courses. Registration for The Academy for Planners and Designers opens soon, so check out their website to stay in the loop!
