Busy Week

Last Thursday we had the honor of photographing the wedding of Aubri and Kyle. They held their ring ceremony and reception at Le Jardin. I had never photographed there before so it was a nice change of scenery. It featured two large greenhouses full of beautiful fountains, arches and of course tons of flowers and foliage. I'll include some photos on my next post. This week we will be working for one of my favorite corporate clients, Sorenson Communications. Each year we have the privilege of photographing all of their management during their National Retreat in SLC. Leane, Adam and Mandy will all be helping me out on this job (thank goodness). On Wed. we will be photographing Brandy & Brandon at Thanksgiving point for their bridals/groomals. It should be a fun and busy week. I'll include photos once I catch my breath. Also, we will be releasing our new website in just 2 weeks!!! After it is up, I'd love to hear your comments about it.

Portrait Exclusive

We had our first Portrait Exclusive session since we announced our new sets last week. Our first Portrait Exclusive session included Julia, a native of the Ukraine and Eugene of Russia. They were great to work with and we had a wonderful time creating some timeless art pieces for them. Below are some of my favorite portraits from the session. This Portrait Exclusive was our studio All B+W {pretty obvious}

Soon, our clients will be receiving our new electronic newsletter called {E•Link}. It will feature details on our seasonal Portrait Exclusives, as well as news and special deals! If you wish to subscribe to {E•Link} please send us an email and put "subscribe to E.Link" in the subject line. Our first Edition should be emailed in just a few days.

A Portrait Exclusive is a new program that Photoumbra Studios is now launching. Every 3-4 months we will offer a new set of Portrait Exclusive locations and/or set designs. These specific designs will only last for a few months, so if you like one of our Portrait Exclusive ideas, you must book your session during its "running time". This fall we are offering 3 Portrait Exclusive Sessions. Each of these sessions will run until December 31, 2008. 

Our first Portrait Exclusive is called Urban Chic. This session will take place on the old main street of Midvale City. Backgrounds will include antique brick walls and alley ways. We will bring our vintage gold velvet chair as a fun prop. Below are sample images from the Urban Chic Session.
