Wedding Wire Networking Event

Wedding Wire  hosted a wonderful networking event last night at the Levine Museum of the New South. I attended the event with my current protege and future bride Becca who is getting married in October.  We met when she hired me for her wedding and we are becoming fast friends.  We thoroughly enjoyed  meeting other wedding professionals as we shared wine and fare.  We only wish we could have met everyone there. But we did enjoy much laughter with many, as we exchanged cards and conversation.

Queen City Catering provided the delicious food for the event and Pink Petunia Designs provided the beautiful flowers. They kindly handed me a sampling of their flowers as I left. I was thrilled, especially since yellow is my happy color!! And I adore ROSES! Double happiness!!! Thank you to Tapsnap for the fun photo memory at your digital photo booth. Super cool!!

For any of you wedding vendors looking for a great way to advertise your business, I can personally recommend Wedding Wire. My stats continue to show high traffic from this form of advertising and brides love the ease of using their site. They have been fantastic to work with and always have friendly customer service, as well as, tons of great features for your storefront.  WeddingWire has partnered with popular wedding sites allowing you to reach over 20 million visitors each month, that’s amazing!






Branding My Business


Wow, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted my 11 goals for 2011.  It’s time to check in and see how I did. The first one on the list was:

1. Branding my business  –  This process is multi-faceted for sure, but I have come so far with the “look” of my branding design, which is a huge part. I chose my business colors, had my new logo designed, and made sure my new look was cohesive from facebook, to the website, to the blog.  I feel my logo,  colors and blog design reflect that romantic vintage style that is at the heart of who I am.  I also decided to take it a step further and give both my office and client meeting gallery the same branded “feel”. I LOVE it! I feel more inspired & creative in my new work space. Both rooms are still in progress but I’m happy with the direction they are going.

The area of branding which is still evolving is my style.  As an artist I feel I am always growing, changing, finding/reinventing myself.  Moving to Charlotte this summer has been really good for me.  I have been exploring my photographic desires letting my heart lead and I have discovered that I am more happy and I like my images so much better now that I’ve stepped out the box I had somehow gotten into.  I realized that in addition to weddings, I must find time for my other passion. Shooting women.  I see beautiful, magical, images in my head, so I am going to take the hand of that photographic dreamer with-in and see where she takes me.
