I am not sure I can ever get used to seeing my images in print. I get excited with every blog post feature, glossy feature, Twitter retweet and even shares on Facebook. I hope to never lose that feeling. Its a feeling of accomplishment. I also know that each of my clients get excited to see THEIR faces on another blog or even glossy pages. Its exciting. I love it when my clients feel like celebrities. I posted Mallory and Ryan’s DMA wedding not too long ago, and much to my surprise The Knot emailed me and asked for my permission to run it in their upcoming issue. Of course, I did a few cartwheels, and chair danced when I received this email. After I reread the email a few more times to make sure I wasn’t reading incorrectly, a giant feeling of accomplishment came over me. One of the top wedding magazines was sending me an email. Yay! That means people other than my Mom are reading my blog. I love you Mom and thanks for all the sweet comments and words of encouragement
Mallory forwarded me her email from them … the body of her email “Look Amy! YAY!” Ok, so how can you not get excited when your clients are obviously stoked to be selected as trend setters in the wedding industry! Proud moment to know how much time, thought and effort Mallory and Ryan put into their wedding and it was going to be forever glossy on the pages of The Knot!
Mallory and Ryan were interviewed for the feature and its fun to get to know them a little more. A snippet from their feature:
THEIR WEDDING STYLE : Mallory and Ryan’s first date was at the Dallas Museum of Art, making it an easy choice for their venue. The Dale Chihuly glass installation in the museum’s atrium became the couple’s design inspiration, lending its own colors and floral shapes to everything from the bouquet to the centerpieces.
So lets fast forward to last week when the UPS truck stopped in front of our house. It was an ordinary evening. Jon and I were cooking dinner, Sam (my four year old) was building an elaborate train track with bridges in the living room and I greeted the driver with a tub of butter in hand and smile on my face. I opened the box and started flipping through the pages (there are a lot, so it took a while) and found Mallory and Ryan on page 262, and 263 and 264……and 265. Wow! 4 Pages, I snapped a photo and uploaded it to Instagram. It was a fun dinner. I am so very excited and it was such a pleasure working with this couple, from their engagement session to their very own glossy feature!
