As we wrap up the remaining hours of 2010, we’re so grateful for the experiences we’ve had this past year. It’s been such a fun ride, and we’re looking forward to 2011 spent with each of you. Today we’d like to share our “holiday” card with you.
We decided to a New Year’s card this year and knew we wanted to do letter press, but still include a photo. Bill came up with the awesome idea to do a riff on the annual holiday letter that some people do. Anne then remembered a wedding invite that was going around on some of the wedding blogs a while back that the groom, a graphic designer, had designed that explained their entire courtship on their single page invite. Uber cool, but how to make it work and still be readable?
That’s where our super talented designer, Blake Hanick of Lilywillow Press comes in. We told her what we were looking for, came up with all the text, chose colors and she ran with it! (You may remember Blake from a recent Friday’s FAB Finds that featured her and some of her incredible work!) Drop her a note if you’re looking for someone whose art and design sense is unsurpassed and who is always a pleasure to work with. Thanks so much for making our vision a reality, Blake!
Wishing all of our clients, family, friends and colleagues a very prosperous and joyful 2011! Thanks to each and every one of you for making our 2010 so fun and exciting!
Peace and love,

Happy Friday everyone! Are you digging out from the snow? We got just a few inches down here in our little ‘burb but it was enough to make the roads a bit treacherous and close the schools. Nonetheless, it made for some gorgeous views in our neighborhood, and it was fun watching the snow fall all afternoon.
We’re happy to announce today that we placed several images in our quarterly contest with the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. The organization, of which we’re founding members, has some of the most talented photographers in the world, literally. Amazing work, really. So we’re delighted that our clients helped provide such amazing moments for us to capture later this summer to submit for the contest. Clients whose wedding images appear here will automatically get a free 8×10 of their choice. Enjoy!

Chris and his groomsmen show off just how highly they think of their beloved Boston Red Sox. Photo by Bill but inspired by Anne. (Carly & Chris are making out this time!)
Lastly, we loved this moment as Travis meets Kate and her parents at the start of their wedding ceremony. “Goosebumps” is how one judge described it. Photo by Bill.
Congrats to all the couples whose images were included! We’re so happy for you and grateful to you.
