Name For Creative Photography Business?
Posted by Anonymous on

I am in my first year of advertising my photography business which specializes in wedding photography. However, I do some senior portraits, families, and a small amount of commercial work for local businesses.
The name I decided to use a couple years ago is Images Of Distinction, and my website is iodphotography.com. However, I feel like the IOD part confuses people who don't realize it's an abbreviation, and Images Of Distinction Photography is quite long and formal.
So my dilemma: I'm booked with weddings for the year but am debating changing my name to something to appeal to my generally younger target market. These changes would need to happen now so I'm ready for next year's wedding rush. My target market would generally be a female, age 25-35. Of course, I would still need to appeal to any fiancees or parents who may be sharing the bill, but getting that initial interest through my name is my goal.
I have a more modern candid style, and focus on capturing the details of the day, not just the big picture.
A couple names I like that I've recently heard: Red Gecko Studio, Bella Photography, and though it's not a photography company, I think it's cute: Starfish Consulting.
My name is Rebecca, but that's quite common and there is already a "Rebecca's Photography" about 30 minutes away. I don't want to use my last name.
Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.
(And I did search the archives, but nothing really jumped out at me.)

Starfish - could work well -- I can see a beautiful vibrant starfish imagery used in your branding.

I'm a photographer and the company name I really wanted was Barefoot Photography but someone in a neighbouring town had it already. It's near the beginning of the alphabet and is pretty cute in my opinion :)
