Screen Shot 2014-04-11 at 10.45.39 PMDesigning an album isn’t an easy task! I’ve been using Adobe Photoshop & Adobe InDesign but while it’s a powerful software, it’s not effective in using my time. I’ve always putting off the album designing due to how it can consume my time. Also having spent countless of $$$ on templates, it never satisfied me with how it looks. About a week or two before Eric and I went to WPPI in Las Vegas, I read an article about Fundy Designer, an album builder software on SLR Lounge and how it’s a revolutionary approach to design. Upon arriving WPPI, I went to Fundy Designer booth and was blown away with what I’ve seen. BEST $ I’VE SPENT! WORTH EVERY DIME!

Combine it with PhotoPress Plugins, an online album review- it saved my marriage! Not literally but with this tools- it brought my sanity back!

Here’s a preview (link) of an online album I used with Fundy Designer software and PhotoPress Plugins.

Eric & Michael-1We purchased Spinlight 360 modular system for our speedlights and it’s AWESOME! This picture was taken with 4″ black bounce card on my speedlight. LOVE the color, the look, and it makes our editing/post processing much easier.

So often we are asked why hire a wedding photographer since family members and friends with a great camera will be taking pictures of the wedding.

Well, think about it for a moment.  The man of your dreams has proposed and you said yes.  Now you have to plan your wedding and you spend a lot of time finding just the right venue, that beautiful dress that you have dreamed of all your life, the flowers that go perfectly with everything, the cake, the caterer, guest list, and so much more.

Finally, that special day arrives… the excitement, the happiness, loved ones to share everything on this special day.  Once everything is over, the food is gone, the cake has been eaten, the flowers are wilted, that beautiful dress is hung in a closet, the formal wear is returned to the rental shop.  Everyone has gone home back to their lives.

A great photographer can capture all those special moments that will tell the story of your day for years to come.  The lighting will frame you in your beautiful dress and all your friends and family will ooh and aah, not to mention how much the groom will ooh and aah over how beautiful you looked on that day.

We care about those memories and take pride in our work.  Allow us to capture every special moment of that special day.  You’ll be happy you did.

emcapturethemomentThe picture on the left was taken by us and the picture on the right was taken by our interns using our camera and lenses.

Yet it looks so different. The photo on the left was taken by us and we have a lot of experiences, solid camera knowledge and a lot of training.

Imagine having a member of your family or a close friend with a great camera taking pictures of your wedding? It will look a lot like the picture on the right.

Hire a professional photographer? Definitely worth it.
