No. Not THAT kind of sock. But SOOC. Photographer's term for STRAIGHT OUT OF CAMERA. No photoshopping. No fixing of any kind. Just straight ... out ... of ... my ... camera. And lens. My pretty, pretty lens.
That's what this was. Pure happiness. Perfect lighting. PERFECT couple.
So with this ... I think this next week I'm going to throw out to you all a CONTEST! I've got some pretty amazing couples out there that's I've shot over just the last few weeks. And they are GORGEOUS! I think I may do a little "what's your favorite shot" and let the couple win something ... what do you think?
Are you local to Davis County? Did you ACCIDENTALLY book an ugly venue for your wedding and/or reception and now you don't know what to do??? Did you look at The Victorian in Layton but didn't book because you didn't have enough money in your budget? Are you secretly ... or not so secretly DREADING renting chairs and tables and having to assemble it all together the night before your wedding? UGGGHHHH!!! Would you LOVE a garden wedding/reception ... but can't plant fast enough in your own back yard?? :)
Well ... I've got a SOLUTION!!!
Did you know for $1395 you can RENT the VICTORIAN??? Yes - you CAN! For only $1395 on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday (and some FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS too!) weddings/receptions you can have
1) Use of the entire mansion and gardens for three hours!
2) Tables and chairs
3) You provide your own decorations, catering, and manage your own wedding, YOUR WAY!
Seriously - that is a KILLER deal! Renting chairs and tables adds up fast! If you've already planned and booked a church and haven't printed your invitations... you could ACTUALLY CHANGE PLANS and have it at the mansion instead!!!!!!!!
WANT a little more involvement from the wedding specialists?? The Victorian is also having a FALL and WINTER special for $1995. For that price you will receive:
1) Use of the ENTIRE MANSION and gardens - FOUR hours (4:30-8:30)
2) Light catering for 100 guests - bread and spreads or CUPCAKES (darling!!!!), PLUS sweet lemon drink!
That is SERIOUSLY everything you need. OOOOO and you can add your ceremony for just $295.
Because this is such a killer deal, they only offer it Tues., Wed., Thurs. (but some fridays and saturdays they offer it ... so call them to check which ones!)
Here's a thought ... a lot of people (you know who you ARE!!!) think they can skimp their way through a wedding. Whether it be the pictures (seriously ... this is a NO NO! Trust me ... the pictures are the ONLY things you have for the rest of your life! GET A PROFESSIONAL!!!!!!) or a dress they borrowed or tuxes out of their dad's closet. BUT ... you want to feel HAPPY about your wedding. Your reception should be magical and romantic and a fairy tale! And it can be ... you just have to know the right people to make it that way. And that doesn't come from 1) making your own cake if you've never done that before (really ... you WANT to take that stress on ???) and it doesn't come from doing a hod podge location that feels cold and un inviting. Do it right. And doing it right DOES NOT have to mean spending a FORTUNE! Trust me ... I've done many weddings .. my FAMILY has done a couple THOUSAND weddings between all of us in our photography. We KNOW it can be done in a GORGEOUS way - for a GORGEOUS price. :)
Call them. Do it. Book there NOW! Make it gorgeous! Make it ROMANTIC! Make it a dream of yours coming true! You'll never look back and think "geeeeee ... I wish I wouldn't have spent that extra $400 making it PERFECT" But you WILL look back if you don't have your wedding/reception there and think "hmmmm - it really WAS expensive renting everything and I COULD have had it all for a few hundred more. And it would've been relaxing and DREAMY."
YA. You know you want that. I did. We all do.
Sooooooo ... call Robert or Katherine at (801) 544-9007.
For a few years now I've wanted pics at the Utah State Fair. Never seemed to get there! Lucky for me - Jess Curren and I were able to team up this week! I shoot her fam - she shoots mine! And because I LOVE staying in my pajamas .. I decided to quickly look through and post some of hers RIGHT NOW! (and NO I am NOT in my pajamas ......... or at least I will be out of them in the next few hours!)
Such a great family "adventure" ... :) A way to document your life that's not stiff. But rather real. Because we all know none of you sit and pose all perfect like in real life!!! :)
Ohhhh the way I got this pic ... hahahahahaha!!!!!
And ending the night ...
Thanks Jess! I love being with you! Your family is fantastic! Annnnnnd ... good luck with mine tomorrow!!! :)
