Des and I traveled up to Ann Arbor Michigan to photograph these excellent and super fun people. The Michigan terrain and weather was beautiful and we went from the hip Ann Arbor downtown and around the university campus to the deep woods. These two are great people and we’re ecstatic that we get to share their wedding with them.
Hello Colagrossi Studio friends! Get ready for the longest, most swoonworthy wedding post to date. Megan and Jonny’s wedding in West Palm Beach, Fl was a blast from start to finish. Even though we mostly talked via skype and email, Megan and Jonny treated us like family during our weekend stay. Megan had the most beautiful idea to photograph their first sunrise as husband and wife the day after the wedding. The photos turned out awesome, and the experience was one to remember. Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Blank, thank you SO much for including us in your gorgeous wedding day!!
We recently had the chance to do some engagement photos with an awesome couple, Kristin and Kim. Kristin is the owner of the incredible K Monique’s Dance Studio www.kmoniques.com As usual we had an absolute blast during the shoot which was full of pizza and snowball fights! Special thanks to Valerie, Kristin’s Maid of Honor for hanging out and being a huge help.

Being a twenty-something in the digital generation, I find myself guilty of not printing and hanging my images as much as I should. Alas, some of our Ikea frames hang empty at Casa del Colagrossi, but our computers and hard drives are jam-packed with lovely, goofy, sweet images of friends, family, and ourselves. Where no one can see them. Although it is embarrassing to say, we rarely get the time or opportunity to do anything with our personal photos because, well, we are young and busy.
This year’s Fort Wayne Bridal Extravaganza will be the Studio’s first bridal show, and the amount of preparation has been intense. Mitch and I recently decided to experiment with our printing companys’ new products to see what would fit our studio and our brides. Those of you who follow us on twitter and facbook may already know that we got our first “album alternative” sample in the mail about 20 minutes ago. Not kidding, I couldn’t wait to share with the world how happy I was with the turnout. The depth of color and detail in a printed image far surpasses that of any computer screen, and there is something magical about being able to touch and hold your memories. I must say that I am now a believer in printing images.
So if you’re thinking “Thats all great, but albums cost a fortune” we have a solution. Colagrossi Studio is now offering Panoramic Storybooks. They are what you love about a traditional album, but at half the cost. Storybooks are completely custom designed, cover included, and are printed on Kodak lustre paper. The spreads lay flat, allowing a panoramic design of images without the best man’s face getting lost in the binding. These features are not included with diy press-printed photobooks from Blurb or Snapfish. Now that our pricing for 2012 is all finished and available, we are offering these beauties to all past, present, and future brides in 8×8 or 10×10. Have a look for yourself!
