    To be totally honest with you, I don’t really care for any of the names…  I feel like Remind and Replay sound kinda cheesy, and I don’t understand what Regarding is supposed to mean in this context.  It makes me think, “Regarding what?”  I think Revel sounds the best, but I don’t love it…  Undecided

    I hope I’m not offending you; I’m not trying to be mean, just honest, since I know this is an important decision.  Your company name is the first thing that potential customers will see/hear, so it’s an important first impression.

    Are you not comfortable just using your first & last name + Photography?  I tend to be drawn to photogs with that type of name for their business because it’s straightforward and not gimmicky.  It lets the work speak for itself, and is certainly uniquely you (since it’s your name!).

    What I need to know before I give my opinion is what kind of photography are you doing?  

    Family portraits, scenery, wedding, events, pets, family reunions? That will decide on the name.

    Out of those 4, I like Replay the best.

    I don’t think R. Leigh sounds bad, though.  Isn’t it just pronounced “Lee”?

    As with some of the PPs, I really don’t like any of the names.  Too bad you can’t keep the original name, I like that.

    @Ms Bookworm:  agreed.

     

    what about first initial.last name photography? Or just last name photography? A couple in my area did that and I think they sound very classy.

    or others like –

    Simply Photography

    Apple of my Eye Photography

    Reflective Photography

     

     

     and I agree with PPs – I like R. Leigh – I would think it’s said as R. Lee

    Is there a reason you are keeping the ‘re’.  I have a handful of photog friends and they all use their first and/or last name “firstname photography” or “Firstname lastname Photography” and as a consumer, I like that.

    How could anyone have a hard time pronouncing Leigh?  Yell  Seems pretty straightforward to me!

    I like the suggestion of Last Name Photography, or Middle Name Photography…
