Wedding Album design season is what I like to call winter. We had our last wedding on December 12th and I'm so very excited that January has been filled with album making and client consultations for 2013 remaining dates & 2014! I feel so blessed that 2013 is 90% booked! We only have a few dates left. I'd really like to thank all our amazing couples who have have written such kind words about us on Wedding Wire Dragonflight Photography Reviews. Without your kind words giving confidence in future couples and your referrals I wouldn't be able to be living my dream of creating art and photography. I live in real life fairy tales all year - with couples who are getting married. Many of these couples once clients have now become friends. I feel so overwhelmingly excited to share in so many couples lives! I was re-reading those amazing reviews this past week as I need inspiration to write a description about us and figured it would be best said by previous couples.
I needed to write a description for editors at various publications along with submitting wedding photos for features. With help from Verlon we sat and looked at my screen blankly trying to think of the words; just puzzled what to write. It felt like a giant ode to our amazingness and let's write how much more awesome we are than everyone else because I've been to school and been featured and blah, blah blah. I just wanted couples to read what was important about us, not all the fluff. Thanks to one of our couples Vruti & Dave (tying the knot in July), she wrote me earlier in the week and said we were "amazeballs" and then it was just the only thing we could think of. I was so tempted to write the description including it but we opted for "vino sipping connoisseurs" in its place. I wrote what I would want to hear as a bride - don't worry we have you covered. You can TRUST us, like you would a best friend.
A photographer spends a lot of time with you on the day of and I tell this to all my couples that I meet with. Love the style of photos but also feel comfortable. You will know if you found the right fit. We have tied ties, bustled bustles, rescued broken bouquets, saved stained dresses all while making sure we get the photo of your groom looking at you teary eyed as you walk down the aisle.
I figured since I haven't posted any album design photos in a while, I'd show off Jolene & Ben's photo-book album. I design the layouts myself and the couple does the final approval. Photo-book albums are a great way to include almost all your photos from the day of instead of printing hundreds of 4x6in prints. This photo-book option is available with packages or I also offer an amazing italian album with thick metallic pages and an acrylic cover. I'll post some photographs of that album next.
I think the best part of working on the albums is reliving the wedding days of my couples. Remembering all those moments that went into the photographs and finding new favourites from the day of. And then to see all the photographs in print just feels amazing. All those special details couples have worked so hard on, showcased in photographs.
This blog post was just a giant love fest for clients and new clients! I'm so very excited to be involved in your lives in such a special way. Thank you.
