This year has been one of growth and exciting new opportunities for Stephen DeVries Photo and all of us here at SDP are so thankful for you, everyone who was involved and helped make this year amazing. Thank you so much for being a part of our story…we’re so excited to see where the next year takes us!
Just got the film back from Jonathan and Louise’s wedding and it’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to get this stuff edited and up on the site! Here’s a quick sneak peek of some film shots that I loved:
With the new years approaching rapidly I’ve been thinking about a lot of changes here in the studio. Some of them surface level ones that you’ll see and recognize right away and some of them more “behind-the-scenes” type changes. One of the changes that I’ve been contemplating is the re-combining of my two blogs (the chronicles and this blog) into one “all-encompassing” blog of my work and life as a photographer.
One reason that I’ve been thinking about this is that I’d like to be able to blog in one place and not have to attempt to blog in two, another being that I would have a more complete and consistent blog if I could do it all in one place.
But before I can make the move to change the blogs I wanted to ask you how you felt about that. I don’t want to make things easier for me at the expense of your blog reading experience. Would it bother you or affect your decision to read my blog if it were not only wedding and family stuff, but my personal work and travels as well?
I would love to hear your feedback to help me make my choice so that me and my fantastic designer can begin to move forward with some of the new things that we’re thinking about.
And since this is a photo blog I’ll leave you with a photo-booth shoot of Jessi and myself at Jonathan and Louise’s wedding reception 2 weekends ago:
This morning I had the pleasure of hanging out with Kimberly and Daniel and shooting some engagement photos at Jemison Park. The weather was fantastic, the leaves were falling and Kimberly and Daniel were a blast! These are some of the polaroids from this morning…film to come. We surprised them with a mini-engagement video complements of Paul and Kinora Films which we’ll post once it’s ready (we have to mail the super 8 off) so get pumped about that too!
I’m so excited to get to share Louise’s bridals with you! It’s always hard for me to have to keep bridals from the blog for sometimes months until the wedding so that I can share them. Louise’s haven’t been waiting that long, but I was so excited when I saw the film (while I was in a hotel in Egypt!) that I’ve been waiting to share them ever since. These are some of my favorites from the shoot:
