Wedding Photos

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Wedding Party with TrolleyWhile I was working on writing a little bit about who I am for my new blog, I wanted to add a wedding photo. I came here looking for one and realized-GASP-I never added the wedding photos to this website! How could I have forgotten? Oh well, better late than never.

Now you can see photos from the Rehearsal, BBQ and Wedding.

Thank You Cards

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

After we received our photos we ordered a couple of sample thank you cards. Originally I had really wanted an accordion style card so we could share more photos, but they weren’t quite what we were expecting. (more…)

Our Photo Album Is Here!

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

It took a long time to finalize our wedding album, but we love it! Thank you to Danielle for being so patient with us. We spent many months deciding from the more than 600 photos and then arranging them perfectly in the layouts. (more…)

Wedding Album Cover Photo

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Today I picked the cover photo for the album! We decided to go with an 8×20 album. I have a feeling we are going to be so in love with this thing when it comes in! (more…)

Wedding album in the works

Monday, January 5th, 2009

Yesterday we met with our photographer to make the photo choices and review the cover materials and size options for our wedding photo album. We have over 600 proofs and had narrowed the options down to about 200 before we met with Danielle. She was so nice to spend all morning with us reviewing photos and helping us with the editing process. We narrowed it down to 130 by the end of our meeting. (more…)

Our e-session

Monday, July 21st, 2008

So, I want to tell you about our e-photo session, but I can’t say too much. While there are a few who have seen a sneak peak, they meant to be unveiled at the wedding. For those of you who don’t know what an e-photo session is, it is a complementary photo shoot given by your wedding photographer. The purpose is to get you feeling comfortable in front of the camera. And if you really like the pictures, you can purchase prints, etc. Let’s just say that out photographer and I were on the same page before we even opened our mouths. I had the perfect location in mind and she was in full agreement. When the day came for us to shoot it was very hot. I did have fun taking the photos but I was very exhausted. I guess because that weekend was so busy I felt really tired. By the time I saw the photos I had ambivalent feelings. But like a fine bottle of wine aging over time or a nice concrete slab undergoing chemical reactions in a process known as curing, my appreciation for these photographs solidified. Now I am bursting at the seams with excitement. All I can say is that they have managed to amalgamate the images of my lovely fiancée and myself with a visual style I really love. I’d say more but I’d probably reveal too much.

We booked our photographer today! We got up nice and early (at least for me) and had a long meeting at Starbucks with Danielle Richards. I love her style and was very glad to be able to book her for our date! She was very thorough in going over everything with us and she showed us many different styles of albums, many of which we really liked. She also went over some details I would never have thought of. For example, we will designate someone as the person in charge of rounding up the necessary people for formal photos since the photographers will know our bridal party and parents, but can’t possibly know all of our extended family. As we get closer, we also will come up with a list of important details we want to make sure are captured (for example my heirloom piece from my grandmother) or some of the details I plan to surprise everyone with! The only thing I forgot to ask her is if she has any recommendations for videography. I’m still not 100% sure if I want a video, but we will probably regret it if we don’t, right?
