Oh Wow! Trash the Dress multi media session

I may have missed the memo, but I just found the Trash the Dress session multi-media footage Peter Carlson posted. I had seen it at our monthly PUG meeting, but didn't realize it was online for viewing by the masses. I just love it.
If you've got a minute, it's fairly entertaining: TTD
Joan of Art is now offering the multi-media DVD package (like the TTD footage) as an add-on with our weddings. Turning Point Productions has partnered with us for this video/still wedding day story brought to life.
Rob Witzel, a fellow Pictage member, has an example on his site, as well.

Photo Guest Registry

I was so tickled to design a photo guest registry for Caryn and Andrew from their engagement session pictures.This is the cover. And here are a couple of the pages.
Terry and I really enjoyed our Knoxville shoot with this wonderful couple. It's a great place for photos, too!
The guest books are an add-on with our wedding packages. I use Asukabooks to print and bind them and they always do such a good job. I just love the books.

Hey! A BIG shout-out to Ashley of Ashley's Bride Guide of Nashville. She gave us props on the 'daily scoop' section of her web site. She's also hosting a movie night out for some lucky brides. Looks like fun!

Bridal Show Fun

Our friends Beth Cullison and Lorri Vogel were EVERYWHERE Sunday during the Clarksville Bridal Show. These hard working women did a fabulous job with the winter version of the show.This is Lorri with her cake that is about to be trashed in a cake dive. There is a lovely piece of jewelry lovingly baked in, and three lucky brides, and one groom, won the chance to tear it apart for the prize. I loved watching the dancers from Lana's Dance Center. It was a great addition to the show and I am a huge fan of choreographed 'first' dances. I really liked Beth's new marketing piece, too. The huge cork made me envision a very large glass of wine!

The Bride's Boutique always has such good looking models and stylish gowns. And this bride was so sweet and funny! Her name is Candice Bostic and she was so excited to win the drawing for a trip to Whitestone. She's giving a big hug to the Leaf-Chronicle rep here.Of course Terry and I had a booth, but I got really lazy and didn't put as much effort in to it as I should have. Maybe next time... I really like the look of my friend Whitney Carlson's booth at the Nashville Bridal Show. Maybe I'll get her to hook me up next time!
I also visited with Yvonne Chamberlain and her co-worker. She is really enjoying her work and is thinking of going to Vegas for the WPPI conference. I love that gathering of photographers and the tradeshow is overwhelming. We're going!
Of course, you knew there was going to be a slideshow.

A Book for Courtney and Eric

Yay! I finished an AsukaBook for Courtney and Eric! Because the coffee table book is completely designed by me in Photoshop, it can be a fairly daunting undertaking. Here is the cover:and a couple of pages
and you can see the rest on the slideshow: Kimsey Wedding Book

Jo Dee and Nathan

Jo Dee is a bride who became a friend. She is so bubbly and fun, I love hearing from her. She and Nathan had a very sweet wedding in the summer of '06 and I thought I'd revisit the day with a slideshow for them. These are a few of my favorite images from the day. I thought Nathan's cake was neat.

The sparklers made all kinds of smoke, so the two made off to their honeymoon on a cloud.
