"I Do" Believe in the Vested Power of a Written Referral

Planning a second wedding was relatively simple because our focus was to merely share this blessed moment with our family and close friends. In fact, we were able to finalize all details of the events within a very short time frame and we attribute that to our many connections and of course, fate.

Now, seven months later, our wedding photographer reached out to request a written referral for services provided.  Tamytha Cameron was suggested to us by the owner of Goldenlight Creative who did our couture engagement photos in a studio.  The price was below budget and her website displayed soft, romantic photo albums of location and local weddings.

We never met before the wedding and I gave no list of preferred images. Tamytha arrived at Gleneagles Country Club and we met in the dressing room where I was being primped by a make-up artist and hair stylist. The whole wedding and reception seemed to fast-forward through the stages.  Then we packed up and went home to live happily ever after.


A week later we were in Paris, France for our honeymoon and received an email from Tamytha with a download link to all our wedding pictures. The nine chronologically labeled folders contained a total of 519 pictures!  Best wedding present ever.

Of course, it is my pleasure to write a 5-star referral for Tamytha Cameron Photography on www.weddingwire.com, who is also a recipient of the 2016 WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award and her reviews are accessible here: https://www.weddingwire.com/biz/tamytha-cameron-photography-plano/b13586a20754d24d.html.

I had no idea she captured all those moments throughout the evening but I'm eternally grateful to know that Tamytha took ownership of preserving each one individually.  Yes, "I Do" believe in the vested power of a written referral.  I also hope that many other future brides will select Tamytha for their blessed day and take the time to give a nod to her skills and artistic talents.

"DxO ONE Camera Cuts Social Sharing Time for Photography & Video"

Time is more than a measure of events when we as storytellers attempt to archive sequential moments through photography. It takes time to plan the album in advance.  Time spent making sure that we are standing in the exact spot to capture the sunrise before it shines, the hot air balloons as they glow under the stars, and the adrenaline smirks of a rock band when they walk off stage.  

The real challenge of time is the delay between capturing and sharing those photographs.  My Nikon D3100 originates more than a thousand photos in 48 hours at the InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival. On-site coverage requires timely delivery which means I have to pause to download, edit, and post pictures to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google Plus. 

Last September I read an article in The Wall Street Journal titled "DXO ONE Review:  Finally, an iPhone Camera Good Enough For a Pro."  I immediately thought of the hefty Nikon that becomes an extension of my hand during client events.�…

A Pure Form of Storytelling Earns Best Social Media

Two and half years ago I was given direct advice to form a company.  The not so subtle guidance came from an Executive Director whom I admire personally and professionally.  I had spent more than a decade volunteering for various non-profit organizations in the community.  Serving others is a rewarding way to give back for a greater good.  It has always been a natural part of my adult life. 
In fact, my personal Twitter account was @theleaguelady because I had been so incredibly involved with the Junior League of Collin County since 2007. Branding is a key element to a company and I didn't want to scrap my current accounts and have to start over.  I decided to build on who I was at that moment and filed The League Lady, LLC documents with the Texas Secretary of State.
Mark Twain once said, "The secret to getting ahead is getting started."  And so it began all at once. I quit my job with the American Heart Association working on the Go Red for Women campaign.  I enrolle…

CATCHING CLIENTS ON THE FLY - #TXFlyFishingFestival

Towards the end of 2016 we formed a wish list of upcoming events that are local, family-friendly, and of course, incredibly fun to experience.  Next, the introductions were sent via email to contacts with simple requests to merely start a conversation about their on-site coverage. Two weeks later, proposals have been sent, reviewed, and one approved by a new client!  
The League Lady is thrilled to announce that we are honored to provide the digital marketing, advertising, and on-site coverage for the 1st Annual Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival.  Executive Director, Beau Beasley manages the Virginia Fly Fishing & Wine Festival that is now celebrating 17 years and an iconic event within the industry. Texas has been on Beau's wish list for awhile and after vetting the metroplex he selected the Plano Centre as an ideal venue for the first year.
