I'm so excited!!! My new Canon 7d camera just arrived in the mail! I can't wait until the battery charges so I can start playing with it!!! I think I'll take it to the zoo later this week to test out the camera and my new lenses. Yay!!! Book portrait sessions with me soon. I'm ready to shoot!
I was just informed that I was approved as a Green Bride Guide vendor! One of only 6 in the state of Texas, so far. Yay! It's nice to be recognized and to gain credibility for my environmentally friendly practices.
I am taking Autumn Beckman Photography to my first trade show on November! My sister Emily and her Weddings by Emily will also there helping represent our umbrella company Sisters Sisters Weddings. We're still in the process of brainstorming specific ideas but we know we'll have a raffle and maybe some free swag. There will be lots of fun vendors and food so stop by and talk to us, support us, and take a look at our albums.
In keeping with the spirit of Autumn Beckman Photography's commitment to social responsibility, please bring a new unwrapped children's toy. Baytown Blue Santa will be on the premises to collect them. They're like Toys for Tots but run by the Baytown Police Department.

My sister and I met for a business lunch yesterday (it turned into a five hour meeting!). She is a wedding coordinator (Weddings by Emily) and I am a wedding photographer (obviously) so we've put together an umbrella company called Sisters Sisters Weddings where we provide event coordination and photography in one streamlined package.
I always had the impression that coordinators were a luxury for those who could afford them but since Emily and I have hosted and worked several events together I have come to realize that having a planner, especially on the day of a wedding, is absolutely critical to allowing the couple some much deserved peace of mind because they don't have to worry about all the little things but, instead, just sit back and enjoy the day they've been waiting for so long.
Clients who hire us both for the same event receive several advantages and discounts (see the website for details) including 5% off each of our services.
