We've talked about the power of a single event photo in winning a new client.
And we've talked about the mighty, mighty iPad tablet computer and its growing clout in special events.
For a story that marries the two, consider the recent experience of award-winning planner Cheryl Fish.
While flying from L.A. to New York for a client meeting, Cheryl was looking at her iPad, which was loaded with photos of weddings she has created.
"The passenger sitting behind me tapped me on my shoulder and asked if I was having a wedding," Cheryl recounts. "When I told her I was an event and wedding planner, she smiled and told me her daughter was getting married."
"Believe it or not," Cheryl says, "she and I spoke for 2 1/2 hours on the plane, and she gave me a deposit for her daughter's wedding based on the pictures I had on my iPad."
Photos and iPads--a match made in heaven!
