Even Famous Photographers Have to Pay Their Bills

Photographer Leibovitz might loose her copyright on her portfolio of work.


Would be very sad to see such a famous artist stripped of her rights, but that is what happens when you take loans and do not pay them back.

Trash the Dress 2009

Dear Blog!

It is mid-2009 and the Trash The Dress trend is still going strong.

As a Sacramento Digital Wedding Photographer, I do love Wedding Photography trends, especially edgy modern ones.

Washington Post Online News has this "Trash the Dress" interview.

Cutting Costs During The Recession

My wedding service, Northern California Digital Wedding Photography, has certainly been impacted by the economic climate and we are all making some changes.  A wedding is an event of monumental importance in a couple's life and while price is increasingly a factor, the couple's happiness is (and always will be) paramount.  In an effort to find advice for my friends, clients and readings I was reading Google newsletters about Wedding Photography and I came across this USA Today Story:

Couples saying 'I don't' to expensive weddings
USA Today - USA
Lee knows of wedding photographers who used to charge $20000 but now are discounting their fees by nearly 50%, "just to get some jobs. ...

Along those same lines (cutting costs without cutting into the fun) I saw that TheWeddingChannel now has a DIY Weddings Blog called My DIY Wedding Day.  I have seen (and taken photographs of!) some very nice DIY weddings.

Another great place to look for ways to save is by re-using or renting things that people were previously buying new.  TheKnot has a cool "Trash to Treasure" message board for members where last week's bride can help next week's bride.  Renting is another great option and here in the Bay Area you can find rentals of everything from wedding day jewelry for the bride to Rolex watches for the groom.

Halfway Across The World -- Wedding Photography Still Cute!

As a hopeless romantic and digital wedding photographer, I love reading about romantic wedding days and dreams fulfilled.

Can You Really Have a Fabulous  AND Frugal  Wedding?
By Lorraine Howlett

Of course you can!  But it's going to take some planning, some time, and a good dose of creativity.  If you haven't got all three, enlist the help of family, friends or even a professional wedding planner.  Having help from others can help save your sanity during this crazy but wonderful time.  If you choose to use a wedding planner, know that the amount you spend for a professional's help can often save you from costly mistakes you might make on your own, and also open up a whole world of new ideas to help you create that "fabulous" wedding.

Another Touching Wedding Story

As a Wedding Photographer in the Sacramento and Bay Area Professional Photojournalist I am always reading about wedding related news and stories and I thought that this was really touching.

A Love Too Strong to Keep Apart on the Independent Post

I hope you enjoy it!  I know the part about the wedding photography being supplied by the hospital really made me smile.  I cannot imagine any real, professional wedding photographer not jumping at the chance to do work like this free of charge.

If you have a really touching wedding photograph story (or need!) get in touch with me.  I'm a sucker for the romantic stuff.

Famous People's Wedding Photography

As a California Wedding Photographer, I spend a lot of time reading about and looking at wedding photography resources.  You have to keep up with new trends, track current trends and I, personally, learn a lot from looking at and meditating on other photographer's wedding galleries.  Inspiration and ideas for my own work.

Doing random Google searches wedding photography searches today on Google and found this link story about 'Fergie, Josh Duhamel Release New Intimate Wedding Photos' which, apparently, the couple sold to Elle and US magazine.  I would not normally post anything about this particular celebrity status-quo, but Fergie and Josh took a new direction and, just perhaps, have triggered another trend in capturing the wedding day.  Captured the day after the wedding on-location in the honeymoon suite, Josh and Fergie held various intimate poses (and held each other) while the photographer worked to capture the special emotion (lust?) of the moment.  Interesting concept, and not that different than Trash The Dress, in terms of schedule (after the wedding,) cost (one additional photoshoot) and style (very personal and spontanious.)

Like the current 'Trash The Dress' fad, these new Intimate wedding day photographs have made there appearance in big-name print journals like Elle and US, so it is only a matter of time before someone has a blog and e-zine about it.  Or may not, a lot of people thought Trash The Dress would come and go too, but it is clearly here to stay (especially out west and for destination weddings, I think that has to do with beaches being a great scene for it.)

California Wedding Photography on a Budget, 2009

As a San Francisco and Bay Area Wedding Photographer, I am always looking for good pages about weddings, wedding planning and the newest in wedding issues -- recession proof budgeting!

Today on TODAYOnline they posted a great story about Tying the Knot on a Tight Budget, worth reading. The stand-by lackluster ideas like less guests, commercial gowns and do-it-yourself-photography are there, but they have a few creative concepts to add as well.


Another resurgent concept is the all-outdoor wedding as a way to cut costs. My Sacramento California Wedding Photography studio is receiving increased numbers of requests for photography at all-outdoor weddings. Personally, I love them and I think that the people over at TheSpectrum do too, after reading this story about SkyHighLove, Southern Utah and Outdoor nuptuails.

Nikon Sensor Quality King!

Nikon's new SLR leads the pack for sensor quality

Scientific proof!

It's not a surprise that the Nikon D3X, the company's brand-new $8,000, 24.9-megapixel SLR, tops DxO Labs' sensor performance test. What is a surprise is the margin by which it leads its rivals from Canon and Sony.

When the French firm unveiled its DxOMark Sensor benchmark test last year, Nikon's D3 was the top scorer at 80.6, a composite number that represents various performance features. Very close on its heels were Nikon's D700 at 80.5, Canon's EOS-1Ds Mark III 80.3, and later Canon's 5D Mark II at 79 and Sony's Alpha A900 at 78.9.
