We rebranded Anne Blodgett’s photography business and are in love with the results! Read about Anne below!
About Anne Blodgett
Anne is a digital and film photographer who specializes in weddings, engagement, and portrait photography. Anne is based in Oregon, and has been documenting couples for eight years.
3 words that describe your style
- Romantic – I’m a hopeless romantic, which I know sounds cliche, but no matter my couple or client, I try to capture that spark that binds them together. If you look at my Instagram feed, my favorite images are always the more serious/intimate ones where I’ve created an environment for my clients to have their own fairytale moment.
- Classic – I shoot film (and also match my digital images to my film), and with that comes that classic look of the medium. I tend to edit with more contrast than other film/hybrid photographers, but I still maintain that timeless appeal.
- Clean – There is beauty in simplicity. I like simple backdrops or wide open natural spaces. Just the couple and their love. I don’t like props unless they add something truly special to the frame. A quote to live by is, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” I try to photograph that way as well.
Who is your ideal client?
My ideal clients are women in their mid-twenties to early thirties, who are engaged or newly married. They are upper-middle class and value art. They are laid-back, love to travel, and have a flare for fashion. My ideal clients shop at Free People, Anthro, and boutiques that carry their favorite small vintage-vibe brands. They are hippies at heart, eat healthy, exercise often, but also indulge in a cocktail or two on the weekends….and tacos. They love tacos.
What are the core values in your business?
- Being Professional – From what I wear to my sessions or weddings, to how I treat my clients and other vendors, I want to be seen as classy, professional, and kind. We’ve all seen the drunk DJ on the dance floor flirting with bridesmaids, or the photographer who was rude to the mother of the bride because she was giving posing suggestions. I don’t have time for drama.
- Honesty – Mean what you say. Don’t cut corners. Abide by your contract. If you make a mistake, own up to it.
- Go Above & Beyond – Whether it’s with my packaging, welcome gifts, or how I conduct myself on my client’s wedding day (step in as day-of coordinator, grab them a drink or food, stay longer than contracted without charge to get a special shot)
What is your definition of success?
My definition of success has changed so much in the last five years (since having children). I used to think my version of success was traveling every weekend for shoots and weddings and being booked endlessly. But my reality is that I have two little kids who need me at home (and a husband too). Success to me right now is being a good wife and mom first, and if I am able to pick and choose jobs with my ideal clients when it works with my family, that would be amazing. As my kids get older, my version of success will change, I’m sure.
How was your experience with Foil & Ink?
For years, I had a logo and website that I never felt a connection with. They never really felt like “me.” Foil & Ink turned that around. Jacki dug deep into the core of who I am as a person and as a professional, which is reflected in my new brand and website. I LOVE everything Jacki has designed for Anne Blodgett Photography. My only regret is that I didn’t start this process with Foil & Ink sooner. I can’t recommend the experience enough!
