Save the Dates: 101

Wedding planning is really fun.  Save the dates are one of the most important items to send to guests you would like to invite who are out of state, who are super busy, or you haven't seen in a long time.  This can help guests plan ahead.

Save the dates can be as simple or creative as you would like.  For instants, a beach wedding I interned on in Miami (WAY BACK WHEN...2002... way before Lady In Pink Photography even was thought up of...) sent out a small bottle full of sand, shells, and a note saying "Save The Date..." to each of their guests.  It truly was all the guests talked about before the ceremony, "How creative!", "Really made me want to come today.", and, "Oh look the save the dates match their decorations!"...  They spent all night talking about how creative it was to send an item that was part of the theme.

Magnets are also a popular save the date.  My husband and I did that exact thing along with a DVD slideshow with his proposal to our family members.  
Our save the date. This is a 4x6 magnet.  We still see them on our family and friend's fridges.

Save the Dates need to be sent out early enough for guests to plan.  1 year is the earliest Save the Dates should go out.  Or as soon as you book your venue.  Never send out the save the dates without actually having a venue booked.   Stay tuned for more wedding planning tips.


How many of you have blinked; and when you opened your eyes the world around you has changed?   Your kids are all of a sudden rolling over.  Then. . .  what's that?  He took his first step!  Oh my, how our children grow so quickly.

We blinked!  Two of our favorite clients came in to update their photos.  Once, an infant and toddler, are now young and sophisticated make-up wearing ladies turning 4 and 5.  These are just a few "sweet sneak peeks" from their Valentine's mini session.

Wedding bell memories

Picking out wedding photos can be fun but also overwhelming.  
Here are some tips to keep you from becoming overwhelmed.  

1.  List how many frames you have, what size picture, how many pictures the frame holds, and if the image is vertical or horizontal.  Make sure you do this before you even see your first proof from the professional photographer.
(Even go as far as to label frames with sticky notes to help remind you which frame is 1, 2, 3, 4... in the future)

2.  Bring the lists you've made and cellphone photos of each frame already placed where you want them in the house with you to your wedding photographer. 

3.  Look for the memories and people you want to remember on a daily basis.  The images that make you feel strong emotions when viewed are the ones to consider for frames or album.  

4.  Pick key moments from the day.  Ie.  Did he carry you down the isle as husband and wife for the first time?  Did your husband and his mother do a unique dance?  Pictures with family members.

5.  Remember your favorite formals of family, wedding party, and the NEW MR. and MRS!!!!!

Choosing wedding memories does not have to be overwhelming.  Picking out memories can be fun, easy, and an excuse to decorate the walls and bookshelves with memories in cute frames!

Let me know if you have questions on where to find the perfect frame for the perfect memory.  Find Lady In Pink Photography on Facebook or e-mail

The Digital Age

Printing family photos is very important.  The digital age is now.  We live on our phones, talk over seas via internet, and even keep all our memories on external drives.  This trend has been building for decades, with the digital age comes a small flaw for memories.  I call it "computer dementia" when all the digital memories you put onto a storage device are lost due to some unforeseen disaster.  Computer dementia is major problem!  How many others have had years and years of memories lost too?  It hurts!

There are so many ways to prevent memories and special moments to being lost forever due to an error, print them out.  I can't say it enough, print print print.  Print your memories on paper, on specialty products, or even in a custom album.  There are even apps available for cell phone print outs.  Groovebook is a great app for printing out your cell phone photos.

Lady In Pink Photography has made it their mission to make sure your memories last for generations.  Everything is printed on archival papers or products.  Our team makes it easy for you to keep your memories from fading and prevent "digital dementia."

The word of the day is Family.

Leona Murray, Suzie's Grandmother
Family is my why.

This year think about "Why do you do what you do?"
"What is your why?" 

I wake up for family, I travel the world for family, and my family is everything I am.  Love, care, and the bond of a family made 2014 very special.  There were births this year and deaths.  In other words we celebrating that family bond many times.  
Thomas Dugan, Suzie's father.

As 2014 ends take a moment to remember everyone who has been family to you.  HAPPY NEW YEARS to you and your family from the Lady In Pink Photography family.
