We love seeing how our members use our styled stock photos and learning more about their businesses! So each month we’re featuring one of our Styled Stock Society members – giving you a little peek at who they are, what they do, and how they are elevating their visual content with the help of their Styled Stock Society membership.
This month we’re excited to feature Meredith from Meredith Events!
1) Tell us a little about your business – what you do and who do you do it for?
I am a wedding planner based in Arkansas, although I do travel to various destinations as well. My clientele is engaged couples! I love working with people during the most special times of their lives. It is an absolute dream to be a part of someone's journey in this way. Often it feels like working with a best friend and some clients truly make me feel like I have become part of their family.
I offer three packages: wedding day management, virtual wedding planning, and full planning and design. I have packages for any budget because every couple deserves to feel relaxed and taken care of on one of the most important days of their lives.
2) What's one piece of advice you would go back and tell yourself when you were first starting your business?
Focus on SEO and digital branding! I think when I first started my business I spent way too much time going to networking meetings, lunches and coffee dates that never truly felt like I was getting back what I was putting in. At the end of the day, my services are extremely niche and I only need to market to a certain group of people which just so happens to be a lot of millennials who Google things and make decisions on who they want to contact based on what they see online. So, if I could go back I would say, “Girl, clear your calendar and focus on digital!”
3) What has been your favorite Styled Stock Society collection thus far?
It is very hard to decide on one because I use a little from each! I will say when the Dusty Rose + Merlot came out I was “ooh-ing and ahh-ing.” The colors are absolutely gorgeous together and I used a couple on my website. A close second would have to be the Make a Plan collection, of course!
4) How being a Styled Stock Society member has made your life easier?
Becoming a member has made my life SO much easier. I used to source stock images from multiple places, but it was hard to find exactly what I needed and took up way too much of my time. Styled Stock Society always has something I need for any project I am working on. It flows beautifully with my branding and although the collections are different themes and colors, there is a cohesiveness that runs through all the collections.
