what brides really want

10x10-CustomCover-thin-45_spreads

So my website/blog revamp is slow going and frustrating. The template I picked out thidoesn’t actually tickle my fancy once I insert my own images into it and I’m still figuring out how to customize it, so in the meantime I decided I might as well start blogging again because who knows when I’ll be finished.

Besides working on the website, I’ve been busy designing albums the last few months, both for clients and as samples to show at consultations. I realized in the past I’ve done my clients a huge disservice in letting them walking way with only digital files. I am a professional photographer and if they invest in me, they deserve a complete professional experience from top to bottom, which means ending with an heirloom quality finished product. I’m doing my best now and in the future to educate my brides so they realize what they really want (in addition to the digital files) is a gorgeous album that’s 100% finished, as in they don’t have to design or print it themselves, and is of the highest quality around, the kind that they can pass down for generations. I do all the work and regardless of where technology takes us (or our kids) these albums can and will be enjoyed for years to come. You simply open and enjoy.

I’m waiting for all my sample albums to arrive before I show you the different styles/covers I’m now offering, but today I thought I’d share the inside of this album. It features one of my favorite summer weddings, Chloe & Tanner’s, photographed at the Manti Temple & Wadley Farms. I love the bright colors and energy this wedding radiates. It was a delight to photograph and equally fun to design. I’m so looking forward to April when I begin shooting for clients again. This week it’s engagements in a (hopefully) blooming orchard. Can’t wait!

blog under construction

ETF_9997I’m working on updating my website & blog. They’ve been wearing the same thing for the past few years, so I decided it was time for a makeover ;) If you happen to visit them when things are a mess, I do apologize. I’ll let you know when I’m done and you can officially visit and check out the new wardrobe!

I couldn’t ask for more

Piggy backing from my last post on honoring our children’s natures, I had to share one shot (not a composite) from a session I attempted to pull off with all three of my girls a couple weeks ago… I wanted a really sweet, serene photograph. I dressed the girls in cream and blue. I posed them on a quaint little bench in front of a pastoral backdrop. And Sisi in particular wanted nothing to do with it. Nothing. Jump ahead to the end of the shoot when Sisi was naked, Ella & Hazel had both changed into dresses that THEY wanted to wear, and I was humoring them by incorporated this car Ella found at the studio and insisted on being photographed with. Last shot of the night. Totally not what I wanted and planned for. But absolutely my girls. Exactly as they are in real life. And I couldn’t ask for more.
