Jamaica Bound

Friday, September 24, 2010 Posted in wedding photographers

One of my favorite parts of this business is working with such great clients.  Our clients are genuine real people with a story that needs to be told.  I have had few jobs over the years. Haven’t we all?  From a waitress in college, to managing a portrait studio, and then retail clothing manager.  I can say people are not always appreciative and caring.  I can’t say that about our clients though.  They are thoughtful, caring and a pleasure to work with.  We have gained some very nice friends from our adventures, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I was so excited earlier this week when one of our brides from this weekend sent over this luggage tag and a card saying pack your bags.  I am off to an adventure in Jamaica this weekend and Andy has a wedding in Montrose/Ouray where the Aspens are changing in all their beautiful glory.  I thought some of you might think this was a cute idea for your destination wedding.

So here’s to our wonderful clients and friends.

Whats the picture in the corner?

Wednesday, September 22, 2010 Posted in Colorado Wedding Photographer

A few days ago we showed you our office.  That created a few more questions lol.  David wrote ” what is the picture in the corner it’s pretty small”.  It is a 5×7 tintype of a brides wedding shoes.  Wet platers also call these ferrotype’s because they are a positive image on tin or similar metal.  If these were a negative and done on glass they would be called an ambrotype.  A small known fact is that ambrotype comes from the greek ambrotos which means immortal. I surely feel that when looking at old collodion wet plate images.  They have an enduring.. timeless quality.  The process dates back to the 1860′s.  We used a lense that dates back to 1908 for an authentic petzval look.  You can see the video of the collodion wet plate process here.  This is available to current and old brides as well.  You can drop off your wedding day details to the studio to have them taken in this process. If you are interested give us a call and we can discuss.

Trying to answer some questions

Monday, September 20, 2010 Posted in wedding photographers

I want to first off say that we try and get back to everyone who emails us, but with clients coming first, we can’t always get to everyone.  I am guessing that there really is no way to say this that will sound good.  So I will just say it.  We get so many emails from photographers, sometimes its very hard to get back to everyone in a timely manner.  It can get awkward too sometimes.  Running into someone you were unable to get back to, and now you are at a photography function.  It’s an awful feeling.  If we had enough hours in the day it wouldn’t happen.  So please don’t hate us.  In an effort to help out with this we try and answer questions with blog posts as we can.

We get  asked this question a lot .  Tyler asked ” I am setting up my photography office very soon and I was wondering what your workspace looks like.  Also were there any considerations I should think of”.

We have the studio which we do shoots at and consultations, but for the everyday work this is our place.  As you can tell we are a Mac Family at some point we will probably get one for our dog:)

Considerations:

1.  Keep the walls a neutral color.  You don’t want any color casts when you are doing your editing.  You don’t want to get caught making adjustments you don’t need to.

2.  Make sure you have good chairs.  You are going to spend a lot of time in front of the computer.  We went around to a lot of places and actually sat in the chairs to make sure they were good for our body.  Don’t just buy something off the internet and don’t skimp on your chair.

3.  Since we have a studio we rotate the work on the walls from the studio and office.  Make sure to display  things that inspire you, artwork, paintings, work you love or want to do more of.

4.  If you are not using two monitors do it.  I am working in photoshop so much that it is a lifesaver to have another monitor just for my pallets.  I have a 30 inch main and 23 inch.
