It’s that time of year when weddings are starting to bloom.  🙂  And when a bride wants to give their groom a gift that’s unlike any other he may have received, she plans a Bridal Boudoir Photo session at Casual Elegance Photography ®.  I specialize in Boudoir Photography and a session at our studio is not only fun, but the results are a great gift that says “I Love You” more than most anything else can.  His own personal Book, Calendar, or photo album with intimate images of his beautiful bride.  A very personal, personalized present!

At Casual Elegance Photography ® we have been shooting bridal boudoir since 2000, long before it was popular for every photographer to shoot.  We’ve got the experience, professionalism, and attitude to get images that will not only “make his day” but will always be there for him to enjoy.  It’s a gift that stands the test of time.   We’ve shot hundreds of Brides to be and we know what we are doing.  From the comfort of our studio to the pampering the bride to be receives, Casual Elegance Photography ® makes the photo session a fun and pleasant experience.  Many of our brides have said that the experience was one of the “coolest experiences” they have ever had.  And the feedback we have received about how well the gift went over?  “Awesome”,”wish I had taken a photo of his face”, “he was blown away”, “he loved it!!!”

So, if you’re a bride-to-be who’s looking for a gift that’s sure to get his attention, contact us today to make your appointment for a Bridal Boudoir session!   Casual Elegance Photography®

I’ve often written about the cyclic nature of this business.  It seems that the types of shoots we do run in cycles.  Well, it’s the head shot cycle right now.  In the past few days I’ve shot several headshots for corporations, models, actors, and a few folks who wanted a really nice image for Facebook.  And over the past two days I’ve had people book headshots already for next month.  But, if this cycle thing is real, the headshots will die down and the boudoir shoots will increase.  And I suspect that it will because we are now getting into the “bridal boudoir” season which usually picks up next month.

While it’s been quiet I’ve been working on the new website.  It’s similar to the old site except I won’t be using a landing page (at least for now) and you will be put directly into the main site.  Mobile user will automatically be sent to an HTML version of the site where they can view almost the same things as the desktop users with Flash can.  It’s been a long few weeks making everything work and testing it on a backup site to be sure it works correctly. I’ve only got a few little things to do and I will launch it in place of the site I now use…   stay tuned!

Maintaining a website is not an easy task.  I find myself making slight changes on a daily basis to keep up with the ever changing business.  It’s a labor of love because I know that if I don’t maintain it, the rankings will go down and business will slowly fade.

Right now I’m in the process of upgrading my website to the latest version of the template I’m using.  It has automatic recognition of mobile devices and will send them to a HTML version of my site which I just built and have placed on my present site (you have to select MOBILE USER to get to it right now).   The new template has several other features that I will be using as I change over to it, so I have my work cut out for me.  The key to success though, is to be organized.  I have drawn a map of the site with the file names and locations and how they link to one another.  I have a running list of things that have been completed, a list of questions, and a list of things that I need to do.  And since it’s a Flash based site, I have to load every change to my testing server to see how it all works together.  As I said, it’s a lot of work but worth it.

I’ll announce the debut of the site here when it’s ready for prime time!   🙂

In the meantime visit Casual Elegance Photography ® and book your appointment today!
