This is always the busiest time of year for us – weddings every weekend along with finalizing as many albums as possible before our November 1st deadline for Christmas delivery. It’s also a busy time for family portraits and holiday cards.
It takes a couple of hours at least to do a wedding blog post and I’ve been using every free moment to work on our album projects, so we can order as many as possible before the deadline.
Keep an eye out for Sarah and Blaise (The Omni), Jeana and Lee (The Carnegie Music Hall Foyer), Manisha and Bernie (The Omni), Emily and Jack (Oglebay) and Jenny and Jeff (The History Center), our 5 last Saturdays. We’re also really excited about Ellen and John’s wedding tomorrow – their ceremony is at St. Stanislaus in the Strip District with a reception following at The Pennsylvanian. It’s going to be so much fun!
Many of our clients aren’t aware that every wedding collection includes our portrait-for-life program with no portrait art fee. We’ve had a lot of clients use the program for maternity and baby portraits along with family portraits, especially around the holidays.
We absolutely love babies and love to see our wedding clients with their new bundle of joy. Stacy and Marcus were married in May of 2005. They had a destination ceremony in Hilton Head and a reception in Pittsburgh. We just photographed Bradyn on his first birthday.
Bradyn is so cute and what great expressions! They’re having a blast with him – it’s something hard to describe until you have your own and we remember like it was yesterday, when David was born – and Nina and Kate.
Bradyn is a cruiser and is one active little guy – it looked like a hurricane went through the studio after he left. I’m going to start calling him Bam Bam – he managed to break one of our indestructible toys that made it through 3 kids and lots of our little clients.
It’s really heartwarming to see the joy on Stacy and Marcus’s face – it’s always something new and exciting with every new stage.
