Julie Thacker Photography is excited to announce her wedding magazine publication. These will be ready soon. Lot's of images from our 2010 weddings, time lines, advice, product info, and much more. This will be published quarterly. Make sure you get one. Any vendors want to be included just let me know.
This has been in the works for awhile and we are finally pleased to announce that we will be offering Fusion Photography to all our wedding clients in 2011 - Lucky you!
Let me explain, the photography that you have seen from Julie Thacker Photography will NOT change but what we are doing is adding audio to your DVD slide show. In 2009 and 2010 we surveyed our bride and grooms and asked them what they felt they missed out on and overwhelming we heard that my grandfather spoke at our reception, my dad gave a toast, the Matron of Honors speech was hilarious and now we can't remember exactly what was said. Unless you have someone there to document it then it is lost. So we are documenting this. This is not to be confused with videography. So for instance the vows, prayer, announcements, toasts, speeches, etc...will all be captured on audio and inFUSED with your wedding portraits - hence the term "FUSION" photography. We are offering this complimentary to our 2011 wedding couples.
I can't tell you how excited I am to offer this. We shot the fabulous Adam and Alexis last September and they were kind enough to be our Guinea pigs. Their slide show will be posted soon and I have to say that it far exceeded my expectations. I love that we are able to offer this and I love how this has turned out. It makes me want to get married all over again - think I could talk Joe into that?

Underwater Photography - Summer Special - Kicking off the summer with a splash....literally. I am now offering underwater photography. This is something I worked on quite a bit last summer and now I am ready to offer this to my clients. So if you have a pool and would like some really cool portraits of your children underwater give me a call. I can tell you that the kids especially love showing off underwater - it's always a hit! This is also great for Maternity Sessions. I Picture a maternity image of you underwater with the sun streaming in from the top. If you would like to see some examples I will be happy to email them to you. Packages start at $199.
Feather Angel Sessions - The kids are out of school so let's have some fun. From June 27th - 30th we will be shooting kids being kids - it my favorite thing to photograph. Picture them outside with an antique cast iron bed jumping, playing, & laughing. And what better time than for a pillow fight. This is one of my favorite sessions and always sells out. Limited to 5 sessions.
The truth is that I don't always post every session on my blog - why? It's TIME. At times TIME gets completely away from me. Don't we all wish we had more time in the day. Sometimes the day has been long and it has turned into night before I realized that I have not hugged my kids or told them I love them (which I WANT to do about a thousand times a day). My kids are growing and maturing and I see it in them every day - I see it in their looks, in their behavior and the choices they make. I am excited for them and this part of their lives but there are moments that I wish I could still hold them in my lap or cuddle with them while they watch cartoons. So when I do have a few minutes by BLOG seems to take a back seat. I realized recently that I had never shared this session. It is a great session that captures the love between parents and their child.
