    She met a coordinator 2 weeks ago that *only* does destination weddings. She started using my wife exclusively and has already sent her 5 weddings for next year. 2 in same area KDubb got married south of Cancun, one in Cabo, and one in Jamaica, don't know where the last one is yet. Lucky for me, she saw Kevin and Nicole's wedding and friggin' loved it. She has me talking to 3 of her brides in two weeks to see if she can book me all of them! :big grin:

    ANYWAY... the point of this thread is this, she asked my wife to make some "boarding pass" and "passport" invites and save-the-dates. Wife had never done 'em, and she's still working on the passport thing. This is what she did on the Boarding Pass invites. I think they look cool as shit... whatchu guys think?

    Nah, I have too much of an expensive taste for that to support it right now. BUT... I told her if I even do 2 of these weddings next year (she's been told one is pretty much booked for me in June, we'll see!) I'm doubling my prices. Simple as that. Destinations are a big fucking deal. I've already sent out 4-5 contracts from my own findings for next year, but I'm all about doing big baller destination weddings.

    I love the job I have now and its so flexible, I don't see it ever cutting into my photography time. Why not double my salary, right? :big grin:

    I did boarding pass for a party (well, a 1400 person party) in 2000, nowhere near as good looking as her boarding passes.

    I still have a shitload of the oldschoot "seating stickers", where they would put a sticker on the boarding pass with your seat number.

    She's a graphic designer or something eh? No way some amateur put those together. She has a good eye for design. They look pretty nice.

    She's not a graphic designer at all. Matter of fact, she does everything you see here on PowerPoint! She kinda 'fell' into doing this 4 years ago because she decided $2,000 was too much to pay for our wedding invites and she made them herself because she liked to scrapbook.
