July Equality Special!

SO_Special-LogoToday, June 26, 2015, is a momentous day in American history. The US Supreme Court ruled that marriage should be a unity defined by love, and thus open to ALL couples.

To celebrate, Studio Orange Photography would like to offer a special discount for anyone who books their wedding photography during the month of July.

Select the Tangerine package (normally $3000), Studio Orange’s most popular wedding package, and you will receive $300 off of the total package price.  For the month of July 2015 only, the Tangerine package will be only $2700.

To clarify, you don’t have to get married in the month of July.  You just have to retain Studio Orange as your wedding photographer during the month of July.  And in the spirit of equality, this offer is open to ALL couples.

Head over to the Wedding Pricing page for more package details.

Photographing the wedding of a hot couple on a cold day in Nebraska City

ellen-james_header-image

You guys know I photograph weddings, right?

Duh. How about I say something more obvious.

Well, did you know I sometimes blog about the weddings I photograph?

Of cours–Wait… WHAT?!?

I know.

Look, we all are aware of the fact that my ability to NOT blog about the weddings I photograph is the stuff of epic legend.  In fact, I’m pretty sure Ridley Scott is optioning a movie about it as we speak. Russell Crowe will star.

Blogging just isn’t my strong suit. Not for lack of desire. (Or lack of things to say, as those who know me will confirm.)

So here goes. An honest to goodness wedding post.  And what a doozy I have for you here.

I first “met” Ellen back in the days when I lived a the Meadowlark coffee shop. I tossed the quotes around met because her shift didn’t often coincide with when I hung out. So even though I knew she could make a pretty mean latte, I didn’t know her as well as some of the other baristas.

I also saw James at the ‘Lark pretty frequently.

When they approached me to photograph their wedding, I was pretty excited. I mean, for one thing, they are a pretty fun and photogenic couple.  But I also had a good idea of some of the people likely to show up to their wedding…and a fun crowd makes for fun photos.

I shot this (along with the ever talented Ben Bird as my second) awhile ago, so I don’t remember all of the details, but here’s what I can tell you:

1. James is a ham.

2. This was a cold day in Nebraska City.

3. Photo booths can get a little…weird.

We’ll kick things off with their engagement session before moving on to the wedding.

As always, feel free to leave a comment below.

And I’ll be honest here: My best intentions and reality aren’t always similar when it comes to this blog. I’d like to say this is the start of more frequent updates.  But let’s just enjoy this for the gift that it is and hope for the best.

Studio Orange shoots the blues… (or Ben’s senior photos)

Look. I know.

There hasn’t been an update to this blog since dinosaurs walked the Earth.

Thing is, it’s been busy around Studio Orange land. And I have about a billion and 37 weddings to show you.

But you can’t just jump right back into these things without a warm up.  That’s how people get hurt. Pull a muscle or tear a hamstring or something. So I figured I’d ease back in with an appetizer.

I don’t really market myself much as a senior picture studio.  Not that I don’t find those sessions enjoyable, mind you.  I just don’t have a lot of time between weddings.

So I take on senior sessions…judiciously.

I’m looking for something different.

I’m looking for a senior that doesn’t want the standard stuff.

I’m looking to…play.

And I found exactly that in Ben.  This kid is cool.  How cool? How about he’s a blues player good enough to sling licks in the Zoo Bar despite technically not being old enough to be allowed in there kind of cool.

Way too cool to imagine he’s weightless in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by tiny seahorses standard senior photo kind of nonsense.

But you know what?  I’m just going to stop talking.  I’ll let the photos tell you how cool this kid is.

I’ll have more updates coming, but in the meantime I’ve got to get back to designing albums…
