Christmas Card Designs.....

So since we got rained out of our shoots last weekend, I needed to post something! Here are some of the Christmas Cards I designed. One thing I'm trying to do this year is not be so much of a perfectionist. I wanted to post these at Christmas but I ran out of time, so normally I wouldn't post them at all! But I'm posting them anyways-even if it's just for the archives.

I REALLY love designing. It's a lot of fun for me. It gives me another outlet for all my creative energy.

Christmas/New Address Card. We used pics of their new home and address.

These next two are some of my all time fave designs, probably because it was a team effort. They gave me most of the wording and so many ideas that I just brought it to life. And I LOVED how they turned out!! I still can't figure out if it was more fun for me to design or for them to give them out! They said they got tons of complements and some people even cried. Wow!

This one is a large format 5x7 card so it opens up to 14 in. Pretty neat. This reads front, back and inside.

The one is a regular 5x7 4 sided card.

Did I give enough examples or what?!

Nice Words from Candy + Dave!

So while we were recommending our friends on our blog, we got a little nice surprise in our inbox with some wonderful recommendations from our clients! It's so awesome to hear nice words from people we love to work with. We really can't tell you how great it makes us feel. Like I always say, We heart our clients!! This is why we do this.

Dave & Candy, Day of the Dead Wedding, had this to say:

"Dana and Jeremy were GREAT, and we feel SO fortunate to have crossed paths with them. Their style of photography and album layout is so unique, classy and original, especially for weddings and events which can easily go down the cliche road if one isn't careful. We were so pleased and impressed with how many great candid shots they captured at our wedding - they complement the more traditional posed shots very well and really bring us right back to the best day of our lives each time we see them. Oh, and I should mention that there is no forfeit of professionalism for their talent and eye for a great photo. They are reliable, easy to get a hold of and coordinate with and were also very friendly from start to finish. I definitely wouldn't have taken out as much time to rave about them if my wife and I had anything short of an outstanding experience!"

Can I just say, Wow! Thank you so much!!

Nice Words from Tiffany + Kyle!

We got this nice recommendation from Tiffany & Kyle, Sept 8, 2007

"Dana and Jeremy of Dana Grant Photography are not only great photographers, but great, fun people, too! They take time to get the right shot and have a unique vision for the art of photography. People have told us that our pictures are the best wedding pictures they've ever seen."

Thank you guys sooo much!!

Ritz Carlton + Castle Green Wedding Photography

Finally I have a break from the Christmas Craziness to post this blog!! This was our last wedding of the year and it was a great one! Such a beautiful couple and wonderful day. First we took the majority of the pictures at The Ritz Carlton where the bride was getting ready. Then we headed over to have the ceremony and reception at Castle Green. We had such a great time with the couple and their guests! Also we want to thank Gianna and Company for putting on such a fab event!

Cool shoes.
