From the “YES” being all caps in the title of this post, it is fairly obvious what my opinion is on this topic. I think, especially as a photographer, that every bride should at least consider doing an unplugged wedding. View full post »

Today I am going to let you take a peek into how I work with couples, and how I direct them into poses that don’t look cheesy or staged. Engagement sessions are really important to me, as they allow me to know the likes and dislikes of the couples I get to photograph. I always offer a complimentary engagement session with my wedding collections. This is extremely important to me, as it helps me better understand my clients’ personalities and how to better prepare for their wedding day. View full post »
Whether you are a professional photographer, or just an ambitious individual with a point-and-shoot camera, it is important to take good care of your digital files. Most people are under the misconception that the chances of something happening to their digital images is slim-to-none, when in reality, they are just as likely as anybody else’s. View full post »
Choosing whether or not to do a first-look session is not always the easiest thing for a bride and groom to decide. It seems that many couples disagree on this topic so we think it should be addressed before your wedding day. The reason for many of the disagreements is simply the culture in which the bride and groom were raised. Some people prefer the traditional “first-look” being when the bride walks down the aisle, whereas the new, modern “first-look” takes place before the ceremony. Neither one of these options is wrong, but we are going to explain why we prefer the new, modern “first-look” from a photographer’s perspective. View full post »

In today’s society, when everything is so digital, it makes sense to only purchase your digital images from you photography session, right? Well, not quite. I heard so many times about people whose computers had crashed and ALL their digital family photos were stored on the internal hard drive.What a loss! All those memories that were meant to last a lifetime are suddenly… gone! While most clients nowadays prefer to have the digital negatives and printing rights to all their images, the chances are that their USB will end up sitting in a drawer somewhere collecting dust and their digital images won’t be looked at anytime soon.

I am really excited to share some of the new products that I have recently begun offering! These custom presentation boxes are a unique way of showcasing images for my clients. One of the positive aspects of this new product is that it offers endless possibilities in customizing the cover to feature some of the client’s best images.
We are also saying good-bye to the traditional DVD of images and embracing a more modern approach to delivering our digital files – custom USB drives. These drives are about the size of a business card and feature a picture of the client’s session on its surface. It is such a creative and unique product and my couples absolutely love it!
So excited to share these with my new couples!
I was thoroughly delighted to find these goodies in the mail at the beginning of this week! I’ve been searching around for a while now trying to find a unique product to gift my customers. I like sneaking in little treats for them as a way of saying thank you. I know they are always thrilled to get their digital files in the mail but I believe that having their images printed on something tangible just makes it a little more special. View full post »
