How do you call this "8 1/2 * 5.5" paper slips for promotion?

Anyways,

My aunt owns a wedding dress store in my country and it is one of the biggest ones, having around 15-30 brides a day and 40-60 on saturdays.

As i'm more into wedding photography I have the needs of having some sort of publicity placed there, as it is my aunts store.

I was thinking about making those promotion slips with this design;

What do you guys think?

It looks very contrasty, and I have no idea why as made it with more of a sepia tone in my laptop.

What do you guys think?

I'm not a professional photographer...hobbyis​t only. I like the picture but don't like the expression. In my opinion a wedding is a happy day, the lady in this photo is just kinda....meh. I'd put a bride in there smiling ot laughing.

If you're advertising as a bridal store do you really need to mention all the other types of photography you do? Would a bride be looking for a commercial photographer? I'd make the brouchure 100% wedding specific. I'd also photoshop those stray hairs to the left of the bride.

I'm not a big fan of having anything other than your logo on the dress. For two reasons, I assume it forced you to darken the bottom of the dress and I think it would look stronger with more light hitting it so the top doesn't look blown out, and because at a dress shop you want to display the dress.

But that raises another point, it's a great photo, I could easily see it advertising a dress. Will it blend in, will they overlook it thinking it is just a dress poster without reading the information?


This is my camera, there are many like it, but this one is mine.
