Looking for a great Colorado DJ

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 Posted in Vendor Review

We love to spotlight vendors that do a great job for our brides.  People that we have built relationships with over the years and know they are trustworthy and talented at what they do.  Mike Sullivan from MTS Productions was our DJ at our wedding. If you know us that says a lot.  Since we work in the industry, I would say that we were picky when it came to the DJ because we know that they run your reception.  A bad one can ruin or make it exceptional.   I can tell you that he did an incredible job.  He really knows how to run a wedding and work the crowd so they are having fun.  With over 20 years of experience he knows how to run a great wedding and have everyone having the time of there lives.

So if you are looking for a great DJ call Mike and meet up with him 303.470.8035

A few things we loved

1.  Played the appropriate kind of music during dinner to help set the mood

2.  Played Music early on that everyone would love (young and old)

3.  Was on top of timing and made sure everything went to plan

4.  Later in the night as some of the family and older friends went home , he was able to change the music for the younger crowd.

Our first piece of Artwork

Monday, February 01, 2010 Posted in Vendor Review

Angie and I were in Nashville a few weeks ago at a photography convention. While we were there we ran into an amazing artist. So much so that we ended up buying this painting. To be honest its the first painting we have in our house. Most of the house has photography which we regularly purchase. One of our friends even came home with one of the pieces of artwork. The piece of artwork is of Johnny Cash, which is one of my favorite artists. He was an incredible singer songwriter, author, and biblical scholar. 

If you would like to see more of Sara Strese’s work you can see more at her site. She told us she does custom requests as well.

This picture does not do this painting any justice, but it is the only way to show it off. It is a 36×48 and the detail and colors are amazing. Thank you Sara for such a nice piece of artwork for our house.  I hope everyone enjoys it.

Totally Rad Actions

Wednesday, January 27, 2010 Posted in Vendor Review

I have recently been playing around with Totally Rad Actions, particularly the dirty pictures plugin. I wanted to write a review for those of you that have never tried them. Maybe this will give you the push to buy them and save you a few dollars as well. At the end of the review there will be a code for $20 bucks off any Totally Rad Product untill 5.1.10 that they told me I could share with you guys.

Dirty Pictures is a new product that helps you apply textures fast and effectively to your wedding or other photographs. The installation process is barely worth talking about since it was so easy. Just download the exe or dmg and tell it what drive and it installs. It comes with about 15 textures of its own but does not limit you to loading more of your own (thats pretty cool). When you are in photoshop you go to filter-dirtry pictures to launch the interface. The cool thing is you can generate a preview with the picture you are working on with each texture. Pick the one that looks the best and it loads it on a layer with a mask so you can paint the texture off parts of the photograph you don’t like.  These textures I think are a very nice way to finish an artistic wedding photograph.  They can create many different moods in your photography.  I hope you enjoy the review and have fun playing around with some textures.  

I rate this photoshop plugin an A.

We will be giving away a Totally Rad Action Set at our WPPI Platform so make sure and show up.

Discount Code  AATRA          the aa must be us:) 20.00 dollars off any action set.

Here are a few examples of images that I used the textures on. 

This image has Crystalnique Delicious on it at 82 percent

Bride and Groom Kissing on cliff in alaska

This image has Destiny Starr at 81 percent
