Did you know that with Spectra/myStratus Professional you can set up a trigger to have the software automatically send session confirmations to your clients? Here's an example:

The trigger shown above will send an email form letter to the client when a session is created. The session confirmation will automatically be attached. The email will not be sent to sessions that are already "Confirmed" or "Cancelled." 

As you can see, it would be easy to create another trigger that would send the photographer a confirmation.

See Triggers for more information.
