A NEW YORK ENGAGEMENT

March 7, 2015 in Everything Else / Trips in Eastern United States

If you’re a follower of my photography blog, I apologize – you probably already saw these images!

A while back I was asked to photograph my friends engagement photos, and of course, I couldn’t say no.  I was REALLY excited because they didn’t want just any old photos, they wanted them in New York City.  So we ran around New York City for about 6 hours and took some beautiful photos.  This session was so much fun!  There are tons of amazing photo opportunities in NYC and I can’t wait to get back there.

USING SHUTTERFLY PHOTO BOOKS FOR TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY

September 18, 2014 in Everything Else / Travel Deals and Coupons

I think I have made it pretty clear by now that I am on an extreme budget.  I like to keep my travel photos in a fun way – and it all started with Shutterfly sending me a “free photo book offer” a couple of years ago, and it just so happened to be right after my first experience out West in California, Vegas, and Arizona.  I had a ton of awesome images to remember the experiences by and I was really excited to put them into the form of a book.

I just want to show you the kind of book that you can get for a great price.  Usually around the beginning of September you can get the great photo book offer.  It’s basically a FREE 8×8 hard cover book, I believe up to about 10 pages.  You only pay for the shipping, and the least is $8 depending on the speed you choose.

I have 3 photo books so far that I have gotten using these offers.  You can see in the images that they really aren’t bad quality – especially for what you’re paying.  As a photographer, I am well aware that there are companies that give amazing quality photos/books/etc. but this is geared towards those who just can’t afford them at the moment.

I have found the photos to be quite nice looking in these books.  You can also do 2 page spreads for those panoramic images you have.  They allow for quite a bit of personalization and they also have a variety of templates if you aren’t feeling too creative.

While the FREE PHOTO BOOK offer is no longer active, they are running an offer for 50% off photo books!  All you need to do is use the code FIFTYTHIRTY at check out.  This offer ends September 24th though – so hurry!

So my opinion?  Take them up on one of the offers.  Would I pay a ton of money for one of these?  No, probably not.  But for what I AM paying, the price can’t really be beat.
