You're Invited!

One of my favorite brides from 2005 has started her own invitation business, and she's such a wonderful person and a natural for this business, that I had to share! Her name is Sarah McNamer and, with her husband, Michael, she started You're Invited. Check out her website if you're in the market for invitations, whether for a wedding, a shower or any kind of party. Here's a shot of Sarah from her wedding. This image also appeared as a full page kicking off the Fashion section of the Fall 2005 Columbus Bride magazine! Isn't she gorgeous?!!

Save-the-Date Magnets

What a great idea. Postcards are great, but what do you stick them to the fridge with? A MAGNET! Why not just make the whole save-the-date from a magnet and then you don't have to cover up the picture or the text with . . . a magnet! Brilliant!

Get your brilliant magnets at the awesome price of $2.25 each. For more details, shoot me an e-mail!

Introducing . . . Gift Certificates!

Looking for a great gift idea? Or already have everything you need but that killer album?? Gift certificates are a fantastic way for friends and family to give the gift that keeps on giving! Available in any denomination, gift certificates can be used to provide the bride and groom with an engagement session, a guestbook, a gazillion prints, or all those extra album images they can't live without! Woohoo! Super excited about this one!! What a great idea!! Spread the word!

February Specials

The specials I had for the Bride Show were such a huge hit I thought I'd continue them through February! It's your chance to get valuable print credits (great for gift prints!), a free engagement session or a free parent album! So don't wait!

Karri and Mark

Congratulations to Karri and Mark on their wedding January 27, 2007!! Karri and Mark were simply fabulous and Melissa and I had a wonderful time sharing their day and capturing some lovely images for them. Their wedding took place at the Athletic Club of Columbus, downtown. It was an evening wedding and Karri wanted to capture the warm glow of the candlelit ceremony. Being that the ceremony was not held in a church, I was able to snag a primo spot for shooting the ceremony, right behind the bridesmaids (while staying out of sight of the guests!!). It was a beautiful ceremony and you can just feel the warmth!

I love the candle glow on Mark's face!

And the kiss . . . (have I said how much I love doing this??!!) . . .

Lucky for me, the Maid of Honor bent down to tend to the flower girl just in time for me to catch Karri's parents applauding their daughter and new son-in-law:

Karri and Mark had a great jazz ensemble, Fermata Music, and, I have to say, Mitch is quite the crooner! Complete with old-fashioned microphone and velvety Sinatra voice, it was lovely music indeed. I loved this detail of the drumset:

We captured some great moments while Karri and Mark were dancing, both with each other and with their parents, but I especially love this detail:

Who doesn't love cake??

And flatware? I am totally on a flatware kick lately.

Again - congrats, Karri and Mark and I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon in St. Lucia!!
