Big news and big changes over here at Danks Photography… We have decided to rebrand and rename the business! Starting this Thursday (in two days), we will officially change our social media accounts over to Kortni and Chris Photography. We will also be launching our new website as soon as our blog is fully migrated over later this week! This is your heads up so you aren’t totally lost and confused when you search Danks Photography and can’t find us anymore. 🙂
So, why the change? There’s many reasons, but here are the main two.
1. We ARE our business.
We are the ones taking the pictures, meeting the clients, creating the blog content, answering the emails, giving the styling advice, loving and serving our brides and grooms, filing the taxes, and generally running all of the behind the scenes business-y things. This business is our baby… one that we are loving and pouring into over lots of late nights, early mornings, long weekends, and everything in between. When you book with us, you have SO MANY options for wedding photographers, and we know that you are choosing us not just because you love our work but because you connect with us. This is a big reason why our clients become friends and we still see and talk to most of them long after their wedding day has come and gone! We want to get to know you and we want to let you get to know us. This business is our little tiny corner of the universe where we believe God has given us an opportunity to impact people’s lives, and part of that requires us to let the world into ours.
2. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to refer us to their friends.
We don’t want you to have to remember two names, and our friends and clients know us MUCH better by our first names than our last! Our hope is that you will feel confident in sharing with your network that Kortni and Chris are wedding photographers who take wonderful care of their clients and deliver gorgeous images… and then that network can easily find us just by remembering our names! Referrals are the lifeblood of our business, and the greatest compliment we can receive. We appreciate each and every one of our friends, family, and acquaintances who trust us enough to take the time to tell others about us. Because photography is such a personal experience, people will naturally use our first names when talking about us to others, so it made sense to also make our names our business name!
OK, so maybe it’s also a sneaky ploy to try to force the world to learn how to spell my name. 😉 (It’s Kortni, you guys, not Kortini. I’m not a pasta…. or a mixed drink…. or a summer swimsuit. It’s just Kortni.)
Anyway, if you read all the way to the bottom of this blog, we love you. We appreciate you. And we are so thankful you care enough about us to click on this, open it, and read the whole thing. We think, much like our photography style, timeless and classic is the best way to go and now our name will better reflect that. Super excited the take on this next season of our business with you all!
