Introducing: Photobooths!

Hello my friends! I’m so excited to introduce a new offering in my extremely limited lineup of photography services: photobooths! I’m super jazzed to be able to offer this to my wedding clients because they are incredibly fun, as you are about to see, if you’ve never experienced one for yourself. I don’t know what it is about photobooths, but I love them and as far as I can tell, so does everybody else.

Here’s what the images look like. I’ll set up my stuff in a corner, with easy-to-follow instructions, and your guests will click the shutter to their hearts content, capturing the zaniness that is them. For a limited time, my wedding photobooth add-on is just $400. I’ll set it up starting with cocktail hour, if you want and that makes sense, all the way through the end of the night. You’ll get the images in high-res along with your wedding photos. You will also have the photobooth images on Facebook, ready for your friends to get juiced all over again, within one week of your wedding.

Awesome stuff to buy | A tale of two canvases

All my wedding (and portrait) coverage comes with full-resolution files on DVD or jump drive (thinking about switching to jump drives soon).  So why would anyone want to buy a canvas from me when they could just go online and order from the discount guys?  Well, that’s why I’m writing this post.  Like any good frugal girl, I scooped up a Groupon recently for a Cafe Press canvas – $39 for a 16×20 – what a steal!  And when it came, I was happy… for about 30 seconds.  I’ll show you why.  The Cafe Press canvas is on the right, a canvas ordered from my professional lab is on the left:

(For full disclosure: the photo on the right comes from Scenic Las Vegas Weddings – yes we got married in Vegas – and the one on the left is courtesy of Tara Welch.)  They both look pretty good, right?  But take a look at the original files for both of these.  First, from Tara:

Awesome stuff to buy | Coloring books

If you’re anything like me, you’re looking for ideas for your wedding that will be a bit off-beat and quirky.  That’s why I created this goofy, fun coloring book for Stephanie & Colin.  I wanted to make something special for these two for Stephanie’s birthday and drew significant inspiration from Photojojo‘s tutorial on making coloring books for kids.  But why should the kids get all the fun?  I think these would make really cute bridal party presents or even an unusual guest book for your wedding – have your guests color in a page or part of a page, and then write all over the rest!

I’m pretty proud of this little book.
