Hi friends!! Maybe this is your first time visiting my little slice of cyberspace here on my website. If this is the case, welcome! I’m so glad to have you here!! However, if you’ve been here before you may have noticed that things are just a little bit different! I’m so very excited to unveil my little (BIG!) project that I’ve been working on for the past couple months- my revamped website and logo. Things aren’t drastically different, just a bit of an upgrade. My old website hadn’t been updated since 2009 and it was long overdue. Not to mention that flash is so…well, 2009! :) I’m joking, but I disliked that my old flash portfolio wasn’t viewable on iPhones and iPads and wanted something more universally usable. Not to mention, maintaining a blog AND portfolio website wasn’t the best use of time. Now things are a bit more streamlined and everything is in one place!! I am especially proud of my brand new galleries. Although it was hard to narrow my entire portfolio down to only a handful of shoots and weddings (seriously, I’ve been lucky to photograph so many amazing wedding days and sessions!!), I now have featured galleries available for your perusal. The fun part about these galleries is that the viewing can be controlled with the keys on your keyboard or by swiping your touch-screen device! So high tech! :) The fun part of the reveal… I actually coded this website entirely on my own! I can’t believe it myself! What started as simple experimentation, snowballed into my drive to figure things out and make sure everything was just so. I’m such a perfectionist and once I got started, I couldn’t stop. My graphic design background sure came in handy on this one. Normally, I am a big proponent of hiring professionals for tasks such as this, but this just happened so organically!! So, here you have it. Welcome to the new site!
Big thanks to ProPhoto Blogs! Their sites for WordPress are fantastic and can be customized into anything you could possibly dream of. Even better, their customer service is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! If you’re a photographer (or anyone) looking for a website or blog, I would highly recommend them! Really, they are the best!
Also, I need to again thank my branding designer, Aurora, from Red Organic. I could never say enough good things about Aurora- she is beyond talented. She designed my complete branding a couple years ago and I still LOVE the look as feel just as much today. This is definitely a case where hiring a professional is worth every single penny and then some. If you’d like to read the post about our branding process from back in Feb 2010, you can check it out here.
Lastly, but certainly not least, a big thanks to Rosann Konieczny for her calligraphy services and my new, slightly updated logo and fun signature (below this text!!). Rosann is so great to work with and specializes in providing brides with calligraphy services.
