Making Your Album Choices

Today's bride has such a wonderful variety of albums to choose from that were not even possible just a few years ago. Times and technology have changed and there are albums available for a jaw-dropping memory.

Your wedding is one of the most important days in your life. It is important to begin to keep those memories with an album that reflects the special day that it was. So many brides just are not up to speed on this important time in their lives. I find it very sad to see how many just don't seem to care.

I have many brides who delay selecting their album design and style. Unfortunately, that reflects on the overall importance that many place on maintaining those special memories. The wedding album can be a lifetime of special memories if it is designed to capture those memories in a special way. So many times I have heard, that they wished they had done it sooner.

Many albums I have seen, are just merely several pages of photographs. While that may be sufficient for some, there are those who want something more. Creating your album can become your link to the past and cement those memories forever when done creatively and not just an 8x10 per page...yuk.

We try to create your album in such a way as to enhance those memories. You can help design the album you want. We provide the initial pre-design, but the final choices are yours. You decide. It is your wedding after all!

Did You Know?

You can now get a WebShow for your (video) iPod? Super cool!

All you need to do is open up the WebShow you are interested in and click the down-arrow button in the lower right-hand corner. Then click on the DVD icon to the left in the drop-down menu.

The page for ordering DVDs and downloads will appear. Once you have paid you will automatically be sent a link to download a version for your iPod. The link may not come right away. I want to say you will get your email link within 24 hours. They actually have to create it first then send the link for you to download.

Nothing can be cooler! This is super neat if your employer is blocking access to view a WebShow from work...go figure. Now you can watch it all day and not give a hoot!

You may want to verify you have an iPod than can support video downloads or click here for some great iPod news!

It's Been a Little While...

but I have been kinda busy getting stuff done. This picture is of Jessica and Jerry from their engagement photo shoot. I like it.

I am already getting calls for weddings next year. If you are scheduled to get married you will want to start getting your photographer lined up as soon as possible. The good ones always get booked early. Most of my weddings this year have been booked last year.

Whomever you choose to photograph your wedding get them booked early. Hopefully, they are good photographers. It is a shame to see photographs that just are straight out of the camera without any enhancements or retouching. A very sad thing, in my opinion.

I hear it all the time, "I wish you had photographed my wedding." I am the one they come to to "fix" their wedding pictures.

I am doing some late-summer cleaning in the studio and getting things a bit more organized. Being a man, that is a huge accomplishment.

My daughters will be getting married October 27, 2007, at Oaks Plantation. Should be a hoot. I do need to have a psychiatric exam after the duel ceremonies. When my life is over. When I have nothing else to live for. When life becomes meaningless.

So is life. A transition to irrelevancy. Feel sorry for me yet? Call me, I can come up with even more.
