The client wanted me to update their website where they sold products for weddings. The website had a few images of couples with the products, but I thought it would be nice to add a variety of wedding-themed imagery to make it look more lifestyle-oriented. I did some research online and found romantic wedding themed photos to show her.
Client: Why did you choose images that show wedding couples without our products? We just want to show our products.
Me: I thought it might be nice to have a more conceptual look, with wedding couples in romantic settings. Basically, we create a romantic feeling and then introduce the products.
Client: That doesn’t make any sense. I just want to show the products. I’ll send you photos of me with the products soon. You can use those.
So instead of having professional, attractive photos of dream weddings, they have a series of poor quality photos of her and her husband pointedly using their own products. Very romantic.
