i have been seeing several “gratitude” posts lately on facebook and various blogs. the concept is to post something every day that you are grateful for until you have 24 posts that lead to thanksgiving. i love the idea and have had something similar floating around in my head but of a relatively different genre. i am grateful for the 21 brides (and grooms) who opened their hearts, friendship, and one of their most intimate days to me this year. i am grateful for their stories and for the opportunity i have had to immortalize that forever through portraiture! i feel blessed that they choose me to be the recorder of their wedding day memories! thank you, from my heart, to all of them! i feel humbled and so appreciative; thank you!!

i have been thinking about how i can show and share this gratitude with future brides. i decided that for the month of gratitude, the month of november, i would run a special promotion on my wedding packages! if you book your wedding with me in the month of november (the package booked must be my current package pricing; not a customized package) then as a thank you i will gift you

two additional hours of shoot time on your wedding day (package includes 6; now you have 8),

your favorite 10 fully enhanced and artistically edited images (perfect for printing and framing; the package includes all the images on dvd as they were shot, but this special will also include your favorite 10 with full edits!!),

AND i am also going to gift you my FAVORITE wedding album right now, a 9×12, linen cover, watercolor artistic paper wedding album!! it will include your favorite 20 images from the day: a 10 spread, 20 page beautiful representation of your day!!! and as an extra bonus i will include the images used in your album on a disk; that’s 30 fully edited files for your printing and framing pleasure!! ;)

you have the month of november to book this special!! if you or anyone you know is looking to get married (you don’t even have to have a date; this is good from now until…well, whenever) please send me an email to discuss details! i would love to witness and record the blessing of your weddings!!

here’s to being grateful!

i hope this special offer lights up the hearts of brides looking for a photographer who would love to be a part of their most momentous day!! excited to meet, and celebrate with you and your families!!

in honor of my 20th bride, bri, something bright from their first dance!

looking forward to hearing from potential 2012 brides (and grooms)! thank you again, to everyone who made my wedding season this year so rich and fulfilling!! i am so blessed and so thankful! kj

note: although i am grateful for the brides who have already booked for next year, this offer is only valid in the month of november. i will do something special for all of you; i promise. just wait; you’ll see!

and future promotions or discounts will not be applied to this special.
