Hi everyone!

I have started to get quite busy with shoots (all unpaid at the moment as I am still learning) but have started to think as I grow busier so should hopefully the spread of my name. I would love more than anything to establish myself as a name/business in the future. I thought it would be smart to use the same name from the very start.

At the moment I am just using 'Lovett photography'. I don't want a cheesy name, I hope my work will be able to speak for itself one day. A quirky name is not what I want to attract potential clients. However, I feel I may be wasting a good last name to work with! (I was only recently married in April so it is very new to me!)

My full name is Samantha Helen Lovett.

So my question is, can anyone think of anything unique that doesn't make you cringe? Everything I have thought of is just corny!

People remember "corny"? I don't see why you couldn't use 'Lovett photography' as a business name, but...

Lovettphotography.com is taken, along with several versions of it. And you're giving potential clients the opportunity to mis-spell Lovett & go to another site. OTOH, http://www.Love*it*pho​tography.com (external link) isn't taken & maybe it's something to think about.

I think Frank's idea above... www.loveITphotography is EXCELLENT. It gives you a ton of options when designing your brand as well. Any good graphic designer could do miracles with that. Especially if you're a wedding photographer.

Great! Thank you guys, I hadn't thought of something so simple. I really love that idea and will get onto securing a domain name asap.

One of my ideas was Love-the-moment - Photography by Samantha Lovett, but it didn't incorporate the 'ett' part which I think can be put to better use. (It is also pretty long!)

Thanks again

Samantha
