Follow up from this thread about re-naming my photography business.
I am still undecided on a name!! Gah, this is so hard. Everyone really loves Remind.. but for some reason isn’t jiving with me! It seems for some reason to have a negative connotation for me… It’s definitely still in the mix though.
So …. for the final vote! ….

Anyone out there today? 🙂

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…
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.

@Ms Bookworm: Not at all! I am looking for honesty. I was really, really set on the idea of using my name or some form of it.. but nothing sounds good. My name just sounds awful with the word Photography and it kills me! Ugh. It doesn’t flow well at all. But cheesy is the last thing I want to be. I want to be classic, a little more refined feel than most. My website is white on black, where most photographers in the area are a clean crisp white. I’m trying to be a little different.
The name was originally R. Leigh Photography which I really liked.. but a lot of people weren’t sure how to pronounce “Leigh” and plus, that name was a combo of mine and the ex’s middle names.
For the Regarding name.. I think I like that one the best because it will be “Regarding Photography” so it just sounds neat to me because it is in fact regarding photography 🙂
@happyface: Right now, I am focusing on weddings first and portraits second (children, seniors, family).

I just added an ‘Other’ option — should have done that before, duh 🙂

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 –
Apple of my Eye 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 bout your first and middle name.

How could anyone have a hard time pronouncing Leigh? Seems pretty straightforward to me!
I like the suggestion of Last Name Photography, or Middle Name Photography…
