As I mentioned on the blog earlier this year, I have not taken on my own wedding clients since the last wedding I photographed in November. Instead, I have enjoyed the 2013 wedding season as a second shooter. And when I say "enjoy" I mean that I have enJOYed it. I'm still working an average of two weekends per month, but my responsibilities as the second shooter are greatly reduced, and I have virtually no desk work to complete before or after these events, which frees up my weekdays (and my brain!) considerably. Seriously, what a pleasure it has been to move at a slower pace this summer.
With less new photographic work on my desk this year, I have had more time to focus on wedding albums. I've been making wedding albums for my clients since I started my business back in 2006, but somehow my new schedule seems to have allowed for more concentrated album design/production time in the last year. I'm having so much fun looking at my photographs again and reconnecting with my couples who are now buying houses, welcoming babies, raising families, changing careers, moving around the country, etc. as we make design choices and confirm the layouts.
I love telling the story of a wedding day through the pages of an album, and I truly believe that a beautifully crafted, hard-bound book of photographs is an heirloom worth cherishing for generations.
If any of my past clients would like to start on a wedding album for yourself or as a gift for your parents, please email me for the latest design and pricing information. My most recent completed album, the stunning 12x12 Cypress Book featured here, went out the door two weeks ago and my desk is cleared and ready for the next project!
Grey silk cover, hand-torn fine art pages, richly printed photographs, even a matching storage box. What a reverent and timeless way to preserve and share a wedding story. Well done, Jessica and JR!
