one more announcement!! i am proud to announce that Lindsey Thorne Photography has been rated by local brides and voted The Knot Best of Weddings 2012 Pick. thanks again to all the amazing clients who have taken time to let me know how they feel about working with me!!
happy monday! WeddingWire, the nation's leading wedding marketplace, announced that my business has been selected to receive the prestigious WeddingWire bride’s choice awards™ 2012 for photography! woop! this award was given out because of the reviews i've received from my amazing, past clients - so THANK YOU!
laura neiman & angie frost are starting up their own styling company catering specifically to engaged couples. don't know what to wear during your engagement session? not sure which bridal salons in austin have dresses that fit your taste? no problem. they will accompany you to stores and boutiques around austin and help you find outfits that fit you, feel comfortable and photograph perfectly. laura is also a part of clearly classy events, and can help you one step further in planning your wedding. these two ladies hired me to photograph them during the process of styling a session, from concept to execution, for their website which will launch in the near future.
we began the day with a cup of coffee from jo's, and walked across the street to get some clothing ideas from the cute austin boutique, miss behave. i know not having the pressure of picking out outfits for the engagement session, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and wedding day (not to mention all the accessories) would take a HUGE weight off my shoulders. plus, i'll then know that i'll be camera ready and comfortable the entire wedding weekend. it's definitely worth it. good luck ladies!
I LOVE BOUDOIR!
...and i've been fortunate enough to have clients here who are also really into it, and who allow me to get creative with choice of wardrobe, location and concept.
i really love how woman are responding in a positive way to this type of session, especially after seeing how amazing they look in underoos and oversized sweaters. trust me ladies, this is more about you than it is the person receiving the book.
ultimately, this is a challenge to myself. i've always believed that women are hands down the best subject to photograph, and i would like to shoot on average one boudoir session a week in 2012. crazy right? probably. it's january 9th, and i've shot one. i'm doing another on my birthday (january 11th), and i'm in the process of scheduling another the following week. i do have some scattered here and there with brides who have already booked me for their weddings which is super awesome. but i'll definitely need more. so here's the incentive:
if you are the first to contact me about doing a boudoir session on a week when i don't have one scheduled, you'll get it for HALF OFF. no joke. i'll do my best to make time in every week of 2012, and it will be first come first serve. want to book 7 months in advance to secure your week? no prob.
HERE'S WHAT YOU GET:
-up to 2 hours of shooting
-up to 4 wardrobe changes
-private online gallery
-high res DVD
-a 6x6 20 page boudoir book with hardback cover
my boudoir sessions start at $600, so divide that in half for the price. that's right....
now that's a sweet ass deal.
in fact, i'll make it even sweeter. if you inquire about a week that's already booked, i'll give you 15% off for being the 2nd session of a week. sorry, there's nothing for 3rd place. no one likes getting a bronze metal anyway right?
want to give this as a gift to your fiance? leave at least 6 weeks before your wedding date to ensure enough production time of your book. this means you better book your week early to make sure you don't miss out.
ONE MORE THING! i travel a lot. and this year i have weddings in
so why wait?
