several months ago, I had been contacted by the renaissance schaumburg hotel and convention center asking permission to use a couple of images of mine from a wedding i had shot there last summer. they had wanted to use the images for some promotional materials they were working on. I was later notified that the project they were working on was an electronic planning kit which they intended to hand out to prospective clients. this electronic planning kit contained a disc with complete information on details of having a wedding at the renaissance, as well as information on the hotel itself, including recommended vendors. some time had passed and one day i received an email with a draft of the disc cover design. while i knew they would be using a couple of my images, i certainly was not expecting and i was thrilled to find out that one of my images would be used as the cover design!
in the mail, on saturday, i received a packet which included several copies of this electronic planning kit, and the cover looked amazing – if i may say so myself 😉
below are photos of the front and back of the disc enclosure, as well as excerpts from the pdf presentation included on the disc showing where the cover image was used, as well as an additional image of the couple whose wedding i had photographed. the red arrows were added by me to indicate where my images had been used. i was also pleased to learn that, in this planning kit, they had placed me on their recommended vendor list.
a big thanks to the people at the renaissance schaumburg hotel and convention center for this great honor!
