Timeless Treasure – a Bridesmaid Gift

Category: Favorites | January 7th, 2019

What do you get for your best girlfriends who are going to be by your side for your planning and wedding? I love gifts that are meaningful and something they can keep long after the event. This box is perfect for jewelry and a custom usb of photos. Add a few of your favorite selfies or growing up photos together and a sweet note. When your photos come back from your photographer add getting ready and dancing photos! A big thank you to Bridesmaids Gifts Boutique for giving us this great personalized glass box to review. Timeless is a word we love because after the wedding day is over photos are what we have left to help us relive the fun. We added some faux greenery from Michael’s and a little note and bow. To get the perfect size we traced around the edges of the box and then cut it out with pinking shears. Who wouldn’t love receiving this? Need groomsmen gifts too? They didn’t forget the guys – check out Groovy Guy Gifts.

See the Difference

Category: Misc. | January 4th, 2019

We are often told not to let our couples see us sweat. But there is so much thinking going on behind the camera that happens in an instant. A small hint of light from a window. Shadows creating lines and curves. So much around us can inspire what we are able to create. And on a wedding day we have to move quickly. It is great art in a hurry. Because of the years of experience and practice we do during styled photo shoots we know what makes a great image. Did you love the highlights magazine growing up? The spot the difference page was always my favorite! When the Professional Photographers of America asked for their See the Difference marketing idea I knew just the photos to send them for a styled photo shoot at the Pinecroft at Crosley Estate. Our images were picked as the wedding example for their campaign postcard example. From walking into a messy getting ready room to making an heirloom photo – can you see the process behind the change?
