One of the reasons I love my job is because it can vary from day to day what I’m covering. And at every event I capture whether it’s photo, video or both of those services I always find something to take away from it personally even at weddings! Sometimes it can be a reminder about how great of a partner I have or like last month when I was covering the “Founder’s Day” event for Phi Delta Theta and got to meet a great bunch of guys who were truly doing things that would be benefiting society as a whole. It was great to hear about the charitable works they were doing, the restoration of old chapter houses and listening to the older members tell tales of their younger years was just as heart warming. I really enjoyed photographing this event and hope they will ask me to capture it again in the years to come!
I just did a couple quick photos of this album before Pat came to pick it up from me because I hadn’t sold a memory book album with a leather cover and embossing on it and wanted some photos for reference. This mother of the groom had fallen in love with the couple’s wedding album, but wanted something for herself. Even though the wedding was in 2016 she hadn’t forgotten about wanting an album and contacted me just a month ago. She wanted her album to sort of match the album she had from her other son’s wedding many years ago. I knew she meant an “old school” leather slip in the photo prints type of album. So I suggested doing the memory book with this cover because it not only sets it a part from the album the couple had made, but can somewhat match her other son’t book. I love how it turned out and how we were able to personalize it a little more so for her side of the family with more photos of her and her son and their side of the family.
Parent albums are an add-on option that we offer… couples can just order duplicate albums of their own at a reduced price or they can custom tailor an album to each set of parents. They make excellent parent gifts, especially if they are footing the bill for the wedding! Plus they are something you can do after the event when not ever dollar you have is being put towards your grand affair. Or parents can purchase their own if they wish!
Just got another personalized gift set from an awesome company providing gifts for Groomsmen and more! Groomsday.com sent me a lovely wooden boxed engraved with my husband’s name and in it was a personalized pair of cuff links, a tie tack and a money clip. Mike lost his tie clip last Summer while DJing a wedding so this is an awesome gift set for him! On top of it they included a pair of argyle socks with a personalized wrapper which just sort of finished off the gift… I chose to put my husband’s name and “Dad of The Year” on it since Father’s Day is just around the corner, but these would be great to buy each of your groomsmen and personalize with their names, role in your wedding and the date! The only way to ensure the guys all have matching socks for the cool “shoe shot” is for the bride and groom to provide them! Check out my photos below! This site had really quality products so I highly recommend them!
