wedding trends

Hey everyone, hope everyone is gearing up for a great holiday season.
While most wedding photogs are done I still have two more events before the end of the year.
Well , for me I could say its the beginning. Or the middle, or something like that.
So any way I see some new trends since I have officially returned.
Some say engagement sessions, but I remember doing them from way back, and learning from some masters, so thats not new. Whats new is its made its way into the average wedding.
Digital makes it very easy to take lots of pictures
For me and for most I now consider an E sesh a must do. So many benefits. Ask me why.

Trash the dress. Haven't done one yet. Kind of a specialty type thing.

But the trend I am most interested in is the day after. A day after session, consider this, you have scheduled no time for a real thorough sesh for the bride and groom. Or its bad weather, or something happened, or the location was so so.
The day after, why not? You still have all the clothes out, most likely your way more relaxed. Less time constraints. Freedom to move around.

Want to do this?
Let me know, I will offering some as a trail basis to see how it works and how I can work it into my schedule.
Keep it in mind if something goes awry, it is an option.

Rachel and Bruce v2.0

Ok here we go.
I really had fun doing these pics! Very easy and relaxed and nice conversation, which continued well after the sesh ended at the local burger joint.
The wind was crazy! A constant I would say 20 mph at the monument, and who knows what the gusts were. Even ducking down to the lower areas didn't give us much cover. The reason I love this job. Never boring.


Back up!

The company we host our sites with decided to sell and not tell the customers anything. All of our sites went down. No email or anything, of course they turned of the phone number, we were/are helpless. Of course we are moving everything. Still in the process of getting everything over to the other company.
SO while its still not perfect and we may have more outages for a couple days everything is working for now...

Please resend any emails!
I got three this morning, I know that cant be right.

of course a nightmare

Web hosting companies stink!!
Its a nightmare, the company we use to host sold it. Phone number doesnt work, and all of our sites are down. So there is no way to know exactly what is going on. Power failure, moving servers, etc.
SO of course we are moving.
In the next couple 8 hours or so our main sites should be back.
BUT all of those emails sent since i would say thursday night are gone for now.
I got I think 5 from my climbing site, and none from DTP this morning when I checked it.
All the forum posts on my climbing site, GONE (hopefully not forever)

How hard would it be to send out a mass email to your customers saying hey maybe you should back up stuff now. You don't even have to say why. Ughh.

Rachel and Bruce

One pic for now, they are all finished and a sweet slideshow is made, but since everything is still in webspace limbo...

Well something is wrong

All of our websites are down, (its quite a few) I wish I knew more as to why.
No email, nothing...

if you need me you have to call me. 973.865.9172
hopefully soon we will be back.

I apologize for any delays.
