XO & Mane Boutique Branding Session

Branding Photography

Today, I’m sharing a recent branding session from a return client, Sandra, the owner of Sandra Bettina Events, and now the one and only XO & Mane Boutique in St. Albert.

About Sandra

I can’t remember my first time meeting Sandra, but I think it was during a wedding we worked on together “back in the day” when I was a wedding photographer. If not, it was during a Tuesdays Together meeting which also feels like forever ago! The point of this story is she is one of my favourite people to work alongside.

Sandra shares, XO & Mane is all about “…focus(ing) on celebrating life, every single day. The little pieces of pretty that spark joy and excitement every day without the need to wait for a big life event. As a wedding planner, she wanted to bring that level of joy throughout our daily lives.

The Session

During this session we focused our time on lifestyle images within her new space, the XO & Mane boutique, which is also the home for Sandra Bettina Events meetings.

Now, if you know Sandra as a wedding planner you know she’s one of the absolute best. If I listed her actual shot list, you’d be reading for the next three minutes (lol). Instead, we culled down her list and rolled over the ideas we couldn’t get to for her future sessions in her branding photography subscription.

Sandra’s shot list:

  • Her and Jill working together on wedding planning
  • Headshot of both
  • Sandra having a “client meeting” presenting a wedding plan
  • Jill merchandising
  • Sandra with her logo / sign
  • Sandra stocking
  • Both working at the computer
  • Their wedding emergency kit

Sandra, you’re always a dream to work with from your insane planning abilities to your sense of humour. You inspire me to make leaps and bounds in my own business as I watch you crush your own business goals. I cannot wait for all of your branding sessions to come!
