Suggestons to Help With Your Wedding Day

At Fantasy Foto Studio, we are creating a reputation of excellence for wedding day portraits in the Kemmerer area and beyond.  You can be confident that we will capture the monumental moments of your wedding day with professionalism, delivering the elegant, powerful and dramatic portraits that we are known for. 

As you prepare for your wedding day, consider these guidelines to help you look and feel your best on your big day.

Hair and Makeup                                                                                                                                              Even if you prefer a more natural look, investing in a hair stylist and professional make-up artist can take your wedding portraits from ordinary to extraordinary.  Though we do retouch portraits, excessive work will cost extra.  You will be amazed with the results that you can get with the aid of professional beauty consultants.

If you are a smoker or coffee lover, have your teeth bleached before your big day as well.  These things can save you a lot of money in the long run, and make you feel extra special on your wedding day.

Bridal Glow                                                                                                                                                         You want to look like yourself, so unless you tan as part of your regular beauty routine, don’t try to look too bronzed on your big day.  Instead, keep your skin looking healthy and radiant by staying well hydrated using a good moisturizer on your face and body every day after showering.  Once you big day arrives, lotion with a subtle shimmer will photograph nicely and help balance your skin tone.

Beauty Sleep                                                                                                                                                         As the wedding date nears, you will be tempted to pull all-nighters, preparing centerpieces, making travel arrangements, making favors and putting finishing touches on your big day.  Whatever you do, be sure to get plenty of rest during this time.  Avoid excessive drinking and get 8 hours of sleep the entire week before your wedding day, for a rested, radiant look that is most suiting a new bride.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy                                                                                                                                          Stress can not only ruin your big day, but can also have a negative effect on your wedding day portraits as well.  If you are relaxed and happy, it will make everyone around you happy too.  If you are cranky, stressed ad emotional, everyone in the wedding party is going to feel it too.  Try to keep a positive attitude throughout your day so those smiles in your portraits won’t look like cringes.

We know your wedding day is as unique as you are.  Because of this we offer a variety of pricing options to meet most budgets-ranging from $500-$1200.  Our selection of products impress you, from photo books and CDs to slideshows and thank you cards, there is something for everyone.

We welcome your business. Please call to arrange a complimentary consultation today.  307-828-3049.

I've been "playing" with a new macro lens the last few weeks.  Trying my hand at still life.  Thought I'd share a few from the last Spring Shower we had:

 This last one was entered in a "still life" competition.

lessons to live by

I found this on a fellow photographers site. I loved it. Welcome to share...just remember to include author.

I Promise Myself... by Christian D. Larson

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

Christian D. Larson

Birds take over

Took Augie (see him in his post below) for a walk yesterday.  He' had "Spring Fever" and was driving Fred nuts wanting him to take him out to play.  Plan worked he slept all evening!  I wore the poor little guy out walking.  I was surprised by all the geese along the river and on the golf course.  I think the golfers are going to have competition for the greens.

We've gotten a lot of fog the last few is a photo I thought was interesting of the sun & frost from the fog on neighbors windmill.  Thought I'd share!

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

There will be no pictures on this post.  I found this on a fellow photographers blog.  It so fits so many of us I just had to share.

Today I am writing for a couple of reasons. I have some quiet time at the moment and need to get a couple of things off my mind. I will leave this for my husband to deliver to you when he is ready.
You photographed my wedding, you photographed my first pregnancy and my first baby. I contacted you awhile back to photograph my 2nd child and family. After getting prices and realizing I would want all of the pictures as we love your work – I decided against spending $500+ – which is what I normally spend for portraits and prints with you.. Please know it is not because I don’t value your amazing eye, or how much we love the experience.
That week that I decided to NOT do a session with you, this is how I spent some money.
On Sunday I called and cancelled our session. Monday I went out and got my hair cut ($39+tip), and colored ($65), Thursday I had my nails done ($24), my family went out to dinner at a somewhat expensive restaurant for no particular reason costing us $79 + tip. This was just 4 days since canceling our session, already totaling over $200 for un necessary things. My nails only lasted about 2 weeks, my hair is gone, and seven weeks passed when I got the phone call from our doctor. It was not something I expected and the cancer has spread very quickly. I will be leaving my husband, my 6 year old girl and my now 2 year old – not by choice. It is very hard for me to talk about it which is why I need to write you.
I watch your Facebook page and your posts about the value of a photo and if I could give back all of those things that I purchased this few weeks after I cancelled my session with you, knowing what I know now, and have that session, well… I would do it in a heartbeat.
Now my time is done and there are no more chances for me. The next time someone cancels a session – my wish is that you forward this letter to them. Time is fragile, it is gone before you know you had it. If you charged $200 for one print it wouldn’t be enough for what it is actually worth. I cringe to think that my priorities were a manicure over a memory to pass onto my babies and husband.
My love and thanks for what you have given us from past photos. I am so sorry that I did not see it as more than paper until now.

Wow time flies!

It's the first day of 2012!  I can't believe it.  I'm really excited for the new year, I've set a few goals both personal and with my business. 

Really hoping to make 2012 a wonderful year!

Here are a few pics from the last few sessions I did.  They were all awesome children!

The above are my nephews, Meg & Nelson's boys

Oldest son and his boys.
Surprise for Mom
The next ones came from a "practice Session" I'll be offering mini session of Enchanted Forest in the coming month.  As I say these were "practice" but they didn't turn out bad.

Aug. pictures

August? Yes I know it's now Oct! Don't know where the summer when.  Hubby worked a shutdown the whole month of August, so I bounced between home and the camper up in Black Canyon (outside of LaBarge, WY).  Had lots of days with just me a doggy and my camera.  Here are a few of my Favs. taken that month.  Hope you enjoy!
