Fall is upon us (shortly) – more studio updates!

With fall comes the busiest time of the year for portrait sessions. It also brings the second wave of “busy season” for those of us who do weddings. I’ve taken most of the work that comes my way the past two years – up until I couldn’t schedule any more. With this workload has come 14 hour days, 6 days a week (the 7th being Saturday, which is wedding day and I’m shooting all day!), phone calls and emails at all hours, missed family events, missed time with friends, and a lot of stress. I truly love every minute of what I do and I love my clients equally as much. I’m blessed that my business is so successful and I have so many wonderful clients who support it! But alas, the time has come to cut back and repay those who are near and dear to me (friends, family and my husband) who have sacrificed so much as I’ve started up this business!

We’re headed into fall and I have 14 weddings on the books between now and the middle of November! I will be limiting the number of fall sessions I take so I can keep up with the incredible amount of editing that comes with wedding work. Right now, I have availability for four sessions in September and three in October, beyond what is already booked. Please note that these are for full portrait sessions, I won’t be accepting any mini sessions during that time (unless you already have one booked with me).  I will be offering a day of mini sessions on a Sunday in mid-November after weddings slow, so stay tuned! Also please note that I have NO weekend availability during this time due to my wedding schedule. I have weekday morning and evening times available for these available slots. If you want to know how many sessions I still have available, please check the status at the top of this page (in the turquoise text); I’ll do my best to keep it up to date. If you need a weekend slot, I would be happy to refer you to a photographer who specializes in portrait work and can take you on!

I have new portrait pricing that will be taking effect on August 15th. Sessions will continue to book at current rates until that time.

I will be cutting back on the amount of weddings I accept in 2013, and I’m booking fast! The first half of the year is pretty much booked full at this point, with openings still existing in the fall of 2013 and into the holidays. If you have been thinking of inquiring but holding off, shoot me an email before I am full! I can’t believe how quickly the season has filled.

In addition to my concentration on weddings in 2013 I will be shortly launching a new offshoot of my studio, SDP Boudoir. I’ve been offering boudoir sessions for a while now, but have decided to separate the offering from my main studio site and tailor some packages and offerings to suit brides to be as well as ladies who want an unforgettable gift for their husband, fiance or boyfriend. Stay tuned for a link to the new site once it goes live!

Since I believe that NO blog post should go without an image, here’s one from Ashley and Kris’ wedding, of stunning bride Ashley – their blog highlights will be up tomorrow!

    Saying you are talented is an understatement. Tamara and I were talking last night about what makes you so good. My comment was it’s because she’s not just a photographer, she’s an artist. You see shots and you see lighting in ways that others cannot. I am truly a hard critic when it comes to photography and you always amaze me. Today I say you are worth every penny you charge, but later in life when my children are grown and all I have are memories and your images, your work will become priceless.

    Casey, thank you SO much for the kind compliments! Seriously, you made my evening. And, your session is slated for editing on Sunday, so you’ll have more images very shortly!!
