Ice Bears Charity Classic Golf Tournament

I’m thrilled to share that Knoxville Portraits is the Official Photographer for the 3rd Annual Ice Bears Charity Classic Golf Tournament October 4th at Three Ridges Golf Course in Knoxville!

Ice Bears Charity Classic Golf Tournament

This is the second event Knoxville Portraits has been featured at in the past two months (with more in the works!) and the first time the philanthropic portrait design studio has the Official Photographer designation. We’ve been in conversation with the Ice Bears for the past few weeks and can’t wait to be out on the fairways and greens this Thursday taking photos and meeting many new folks.

Knoxville Portraits will also have some major prizes for attendees, with nearly $250 worth of items we’ve donated to the silent auction and one lucky winner will get over $1000 worth of items in the door prize drawing! Read more

Everyone loves lists on the Interwebz, and I’m no different. If you can boil simple content down into simple bullet points or numbered lists, kudos.

Here’s a list I found today that may come in handy for other small business owners like me on how NOT to spend your money, especially early on:

  1. “Bad Advertising – Most new small business owners get bombarded people trying to sell ad space. Do your research and determine if your customer profile matches that of the publishers audience. And don’t commit to long term anything. If they stand behind their product, they should allow you to test it for your business. Chris Sonjeow of LoveBookOnline.com

Knoxville Portraits - Fine Art Portrait

Knoxville Portraits LogoI’m extremely excited to make an announcement that should surprise no one who has been keeping up with the blog in the past two weeks. It’s in the soft-launch phase, but Knoxville Fashion Week was the unveiling event for Moser Visuals‘ newest feature brand for portraits and photography.

Everyone, meet Knoxville Portraits. Knoxville Portraits, meet everyone!

Knoxville Portraits (KP) is the premier choice for portrait photography in Knoxville and East Tennessee Area (Middle Tennessee, you’re included as well!). KP offers family, children’s, couples, and high school seniors portraiture, and professional headshots, fashion, and event photography as well.

What makes Knoxville Portraits unique? Through the complimentary consultation, we tailor your portrait experience to meet your needs and exceed your expectations. This isn’t a cookie cutter portrait studio with a “Say cheese and click” approach. KP works with you to create your own photographic art and design your family heirlooms. Read more

 More great news for you from Moser Visuals!

Earlier this week, I announced the first referral reward for our Moser Visuals VIP Rewards program: A night out on the town including dinner at Knoxville’s own Naples Italian Restaurant and your option of drinks at Naples or a movie at Knoxville-based Regal Cinemas!

Today, I have another option from which you can choose: A custom fine wine basket from Knoxville’s own Blue Slip Winery, located in the heart of the historic Old City! Read more

Moser Visuals LogoTypically, when you help someone out, you don’t expect anything in return—as you shouldn’t if you’re simply trying to do good. You’ll often receive a kind bit of “Thanks” from the person you helped, however.

I’m offering my thanks for your help ahead of time, and the best part is you CAN expect something in return—to the tune of a night out on the town!

As I’m growing my business, I understand the value of word-of-mouth endorsements from friends and customers. I would love to have a HUGE base of friends and customers to tell other folks about how much they’ve loved the work I’ve done for them, but as a relatively new business, my base of friends and customers is quite small.

Moser Visuals is developing a Rewards Program (for now, dubbed “Moser Visuals VIP Rewards”) and the first reward we’ve added is a referral bonus for ANYONE who sends someone our way. If you’ve read this far, you probably want to know two things: 1) What product/service would you refer people for? and 2) What is the reward? Read more

I just returned from a beautiful outdoor Destination Wedding in Aspen, Colorado! It was a fantastic trip and a wonderful experience for me as it was my first wedding as a groomsman.

Despite the fact that I was in the wedding party, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to shoot a gorgeous outdoor destination wedding in Aspen! The backdrop in the Rocky Mountains near the Maroon Bells was just too incredible for me to turn down, so aside from the ceremony itself, I had my camera by my side (the entire weekend, in fact) and got some breathtaking shots.

I am very excited to announce the official launch of the first Moser Visuals brand:

Knox Wedding Photo + Video

 

Knox Wedding Photo + Video is Knoxville’s choice for brides who want their wedding to be an amazing event that also supports those in need!

Check out the new Knox Wedding Photo + Video website: KnoxWeddingPhoto.com & KnoxWeddingVideo.com.

I can’t wait for you to get to know this new brand and the brides that want to use their wedding to do some good. I’m such a romantic, so weddings, engagements, and couples photography and videography have always been a thrill for me. Hearing the stories of how couples got together (Facebook), where they got engaged (World’s Fair Park), and where they are getting married (Aspen, Colorado) really makes doing this job that much more rewarding (coolest stories I’ve been told are in parenthesis).

Follow Knox Wedding Photo + Video on Twitter: @knoxwedding.

Because a major emphasis of the Chadasha Foundation is helping Haitian children get life-saving heart surgeries they wouldn’t otherwise have access to (their “Heartbeat of Haiti” program), it only makes sense that I tie those kids hearts in with the lovestruck hearts of brides- and grooms-to-be that will support them. Thus the slogan:

Share Your Heart & Save A Heart!

It’s not just a slick slogan—it’s true. In fact, I’m working on a documentary about the “Heartbeat of Haiti” program right now, and investments in Knox Wedding Photo + Video support the continued production of it for Chadasha!

I’m also excited to announce the following giveaway to promote Knox Wedding Photo + Video!

Today marks the launch of Knox Wedding Photo + Video, and to celebrate, I’m giving away some major wedding gifts!

The first 5 couples to book a wedding with Knox Wedding Photo + Video will receive a Romantic Engagement Portrait Session and five additional matted 11″x 14″ Keepsake Prints to put in your Keepsake Box (a $700 value) as a gift from Knox Wedding Photo + Video!

It gets better, though! These first five couples have an opportunity to get even more for their wedding day! Read more

Hey folks!

I’m feeling pretty candid about how I’m growing my business and want to experiment in a public social sphere, because I think y’all’s opinions can be really helpful to the success of Moser Visuals. Plus, once you try to do something yourself, it’s almost like you forget everything you’ve learned or thought as a consumer. Kinda like giving solid relationship advice to everyone else but being inept at applying anything resembling intelligent romantic decisions yourself.

As a part of my initial marketing plan, I’m experimenting with social specials. I’ve got a lot of ideas, but I need your help to know if they’ll be awesome or duds. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!

First up: A Foursquare Special!

“Social Promo @ Moser Visuals Studio – Foursquare 1st Visit Gift: 1 photo on your 1st check-in! ($100 value). Check in @ The Studio today!”

It’s been a long time coming.

The build-up to this moment has been like the “drumroll” before a kiss. So many events and experiences in my life have led to this day (well, not really this day, but I’m trying to be super duper dramatic here) that it has only been a question of “when” and not “if.”

This day, I’m finally posting a new blog! Oh, and I also left my well-paying and comfortable job at one of the largest cable network companies in America to start my own small business: Moser Visuals. Moser Visuals is a photo, video, and design company designed to support my volunteer role as the Director of Media for the Chadasha Foundation. Read more
