Mary & Tyler Pettway Wedding Pictures

I am almost finished with the PreCeremony pictures from the wedding. There are a LOT of pictures. I should be finished today...hopefully with the PreCeremony.

The process is very time-consuming, to say the least! This whole process makes getting the pictures from going online sooner very delayed. Plus, I must address other issues that need to be done. I can assure you, you would NOT want to see the pictures straight-out-of-the-camera.

Anyway, click the link above to view what is there now.

Gift Certificates are Available

Help a bride with a wonderful memory upgrade. Give her a Gift Certificate. You can buy one for her from the Homepage or anywhere on the Wedding Spotlight pages. Just look for the words: Gift Certificate kinda easy, huh?

Gift Certificates help a bride and groom pay for a coffee table album, or more pages, or a bigger album, or just about anything else they want. Gift Certificates make a wonderful gift and a very grateful couple!

If you did not click on the other links above to purchase a Gift Certificate, you can click here:

I 'THINK' email is ok...

It is up and I am receiving emails again. Not sure what happened, but it went down sometime Saturday and just came back online yesterday, only to go down again, now it is ok...again.

I am wading through the emails and trying to get other things done, so bear with me.

I am thankful I was not in that help desk nightmare... :)

Email Still Down!

I called this morning and they have had a major server issue. I cannot access anything to do with my email. I cannot send or receive anything.

Just bear with me. If you are trying to email me something, right now it is better to call. If I am not available to take your call, leave a voice-mail and I will call you back.

Thanks in advance.

Can't get to it at all. I will need to call the company on Monday.

If you have sent me an email, sorry, I cannot get to it right now.

Back to Work...

Okay, after a few days working on another couple's coffee table album, I am back to work on Mary and Tyler's Album Showcase.

I am going to try and knock this out soon.

Current Page number: 100 Layout Complete

Now, I will insert some text in various pages, save everything in a format the Album Showcase software can understand and upload it to the Website. Almost there...Hang-on!!!

Kim & Daniel Hussey...Awesome Album

Kim and Daniel have just finished-up the design for their coffee-table album. I have to say it is awesome. It is pretty much like the Album Showcase file, but with a few changes.

They decided to add some text to each other that they will not see until the album arrives. Kinda neat.

I can hardly wait to see some of those pages printed on Metallic paper!

They are getting a full 100 pages with a silk cover. I will be finishing up the final design today so we can get that shipped to Italy for production.

If you want to see their Album Showcase version click here. It is pretty close to the final version.

Sorry For the Delays...

I had to pause from getting the Album Showcase for Mary & Tyler completed (see post below) as well as some head shots for others.

I had to finalize (somewhat) the final coffee table album design layout for a previous bride, Kim Cruz and Daniel Hussey. Awesome design.

I should be back on-track today and will get everything done shortly. I apologize for all the delays.

Mary & Tyler's Album Showcase Update

So far, I am up to page 58 (check back here for page number updates) and things are going smoothly.

For those that are not aware, the process is:
  1. I lay out all the pages
  2. then I go back and insert quotes on some of the pages to give the couple an idea of what can be done.
They are more than welcome to help in the final design, should they choose a coffee-table style album.

I usually strive to get from 70-100 pages. Occasionally it goes over 100.

The Album Showcase does not contain all the photos. It is intended to be a coffee-table style album that tells a story. If it is crammed with a lot of photos, it just turns into a very cluttered and boring photo album.

I will keep you updated on the album as it progresses.

Having a Bad Day???

Amanda & Mitchell

I will be photographing Amanda for her formal bridal photograph.

Amanda and Mitchell are getting married December 27, 2008, at the Coosada Baptist Church with the reception being held at the Legends Ballroom at the Country Club in Prattville.

Just in time to take that tax deduction...I'm afraid there may be fewer of those in the future...

I have a new toy to play with, so I am looking forward to trying it out during her bridal shoot. Too bad Mitchell will not be able to see.

Mary & Tyler's Album Showcase Update

I am in the process of working on their Album Showcase (just sample picture above).

The Album Showcase can take several days to complete. The whole process of creating it is very time-intensive.

Once that is done then I go through the individual pictures and edit, retouch and enhance those before I put them online.

Just an FYI...

A Little Behind...

I am running a little behind getting the WebShow posted for Mary's and Tyler's wedding this weekend. It will probably go up sometime today (tonight).
