2018 a year for weddings!

2018 will be the year of weddings for many reasons. Last year we rolled out a brand new senior portrait program and the reception was fantastic!

In 2018 we are making changes to weddings in a good way. Over the past 10 years, we’ve been listening to what our brides like. We want to make them happy and give them a fun and stress free experience from start to finish.

Going into 2018 we will be rolling out a new bridal program with new wedding tips, a wedding guide, local wedding vendor partner discounts, and PRINT RELEASES!

That’s right, going forward, including all of our current brides, all weddings will include a print release for images up to size 5×7. Sizes over 5×7 will still be purchased through us or have the option of a premium print release that permits you to print any size.

More details and announcements coming soon…

 

To teach, is to love…

One question we get alot is “Who takes pictures of you guys??”
Well… We do.
Up untill now that is, a couple of our children have recently shown some interest in photography. This year our oldest, Angelina will be starting her freshman year *gulp*.
She is taking photography as one of her electives, and has been asking to get behind the camera. With the launch of our new website Joe and I agreed we needed some new photos of us. So we grabbed a couple cameras, an off camera flash & Angelina and headed to Gulford Lake…
-Now I might add, a couple of years ago Angel got her own professional camera as a birthday gift, so she is no stranger to creativity behind the camera.

A picture Angel took on our trip to Florida.
 Her little brothers, and our family pets are always her subjects of choice however. But for the first time she is the photographer, taking pictures of photographers, that just so happen to be her parents.
That’s no easy task.
So, back to the story…
We set up the camera settings and the flash, then pretty much told her to have fun…
After several minutes of her getting comfortable with the camera, her creativity started flowing. One of our proudest moments of that night is when she started taking pictures of us when we didn’t expect it. Those are the pictures that we might not use for the website, but ones that we will cherish forever.
If we could teach our children anything about photography, it would be to capture moments like this.
     Pure, unexpected moments that you can’t pose or plan. That is what makes a good photographer a great one.
So who knows, maybe some day one (or all) of our kids will take up the family business, and keep our legacy alive. Or, maybe they will just use it as a hobby to take photos of their own children. No matter what they do, I hope one day when they pick up a camera or even take a picture on their phone they will think of us. Or their exposure…
Either way we will be proud.

 

New studio, New website, New Joseph Lynn Photography!

We wanted to completely give our website a new fresh look, because let’s be honest a lot has changed. But trust us, change is good!
Our new studio took a lot of time, passion, & creativity, and we couldn’t be happier with it. That project inspired us to give even more of us, into our business…


We absolutely love what we do, not many people can say they get to work with their best friend everyday and also do what they love. But, we can. One thing we have learned so far is, life is crazy, fast, & beautiful. To take those beautiful moments, stop them in time, and have the ability to share them with others is a pretty awesome thing if you ask me.
One thing we absolutely take pride in is if you aren’t our friend before you become our client, you will be. We love our clients, they are literally *The Best*!
One of the features of our new website that I (Rose) am super excited about is our blog. We love learning about our clients, when we take their pictures we want to tell their story. And there’s always a fun backstory behind so many of our photos, and now with our new blog we can share those stories. Hopefully you will find them as amusing as we do! We never seem to have a dull moment around here, and we wouldn’t change that for anything. We hope that everyone will get to learn a little more about us through our blogging as well.
Between our amazing experiences, funny stories, & crazy rant’s you’ll surely be amused.
