Testimonials from Chic Members:

"I have really loved the forum and will be continuing my membership. I have joined one or two before and didn't feel like it was useful, or a good fit. But I really like Chic Critique. I signed up for a critique with Brandi Smyth and that has been really helpful, and i tuned in to the webinar with Mary Marantz and got some ideas i can't wait to implement. i had a couple the very next day that had me thinking hmmm... is this my ideal bride & groom?? And I love the magazine! And the Instagram feed. Thank you. :)" -Kinsey Holt

"I have learned so much from your forum, you have no idea. I am eternally grateful. :0) I mean it, Kelli France. Crap now I am crying." -Jackie B. Harley

"I took a leap of faith and purchased the lifetime membership…I have been a member for less than 12 hours, and I am so excited and confident that this is the best investment of my photographic career.  Thanks also to all the contributors who have shared their talents so openly and honestly." -Chi Nguyen

"There is a lot of activity here and the amount of information and types of photography you cover are fantastic. I'm in two other forums and one just started a few months ago so not many posters and the other is dominated by maybe six posters and the information doesn't always fulfill the question I am seeking an answer for. I love how lively it is here, I love the magazine, and I love the blog. Keep it up!" -Meagen Rice

"I've only been a member of the forum for a short time, and mainly only to get into the Critique class with Jennifer Tonetti-Spellman, but I must say, I ADORE YOUR FORUM!!!!!!!!! I love it oh so so so so much! Already! Thank you for providing such a wonderful (and well organized) atmosphere for photographers!" -Victoria Anne Hershman
"I just signed up to the forum today. I am loving it! :) It is unlike any forum that I have researched. I'm glad I joined this one! :)" -Jeanie Holland

"I initially just wanted to join the CC forum so I could sign up for Jennifer Tonetti Spellman's class. I'm so glad I'm on CC because I'm getting so much more than what I expected. The other members' and celebrity photogs' ideas on marketing and customer service are the most valuable for me! I love how everyone has something awesome to share, be it editing style or helpful critiques. I'm loving the freebies too!"   -Owee Yulo

"I don't say it much but thanks Kelli! Chic has really been a huge part of my growth as a photographer. Not just the critique, but also the wealth of information, introduction to awesome vendors and experts, and encouragement and support! Thought of you this morning as I headed to the gym without even thinking to put on makeup! :) have a great weekend!"  -Jaclyn Jeanquart

This morning, I'm reflecting back on all that has happened with Chic Critique in the past 3 years. It seriously seems like we've been around for longer than that because it has been a very fun and full 3 years. My heart is SO full of gratitude to YOU who read our blog and our Chic Magazine, cry with us in our newsletter, laugh with us on Facebook, and swoon over eye candy on our Instagram and Pinterest. We had a BLAST at our Chic Retreat and especially LOVE our forum members whom we get to interact with on a regular basis and of course, our Celebrity Photographers we've featured through the past 2 years (check out our Hall of Fame!).  We owe it all to you, our phenomenal fans.  Thank You.

We are Birthday Divas that like to PART-AY & celebrate all.week.long.

Here's what's to come this week:

  • HUGE GIVEAWAYS EVERY DAY on our Chic Giveaways site!
  • A Cake Smash contest on Facebook
  • A FLASH SALE for our forum
