making valentine's day even sweeter with personalized cards

Valentine Card for PhotographersToday's lovely share comes from Colleen Hernandez of Fournineteen Photography.  She writes, "This simple little round scalloped Valentine's Day card is a 'thank you' from me to one of my favorite, and regular, clients. I used a photo I had taken during their holiday session and tucked it away for this little gem. I then searched my Design Aglow collection of custom products to find the design that fit them best. The background from one of the Classic Monogram Cards caught my eye... and will hopefully catch their valentine hearts! To frame the image, I used the ornate shape from the downloadable printing guideline on MPixPro.  I can't wait to deliver this and say 'thank you' for all of the family moments they have allowed me to photograph. The Classic Monogram Collection is simple and can be used for SO many different design presentations. I use it for cards, albums and accordion minis all the time! It made making this card a cinch! When I spoke with my client about making these, she was so excited! Although I always do their Christmas card, and it has become an expected arrival at all their friends and families homes, now she can surprise them with a little Valentine goodie as well!" Thanks for the share, Colleen, and enjoy your $75 gift certificate on us!

Ola! I run The Auburn Hour Film Co. We’re all about creating modern, energetic and fun wedding films. After graduating university and bouncing around aimlessly for a few years (yes, I have a useless arts degree hanging in my home!), I found my way into the fashion and event scene, and eventually wound up second shooting wedding videos for friends I had gone to uni with. I had heard from a number of sources that I should never get into wedding films if I could help it. I would hear tales of bridezillas, endless stress and and backlog of overdue films up to my ears. And I was starting to believe it!

I never really intended to be a wedding photographer or cinematographer. I’ve always had a huge love for movies, and the idea of getting into that industry intrigued me, but I didn’t really know where to start. When I graduated with a degree in communications in 2006 and figured I'd just be at a typical 9-5er for the rest of my life. In 2011 a friend posted on Facebook that she needed someone to videotape her wedding ceremony (happening the next day). I borrowed my brother's canon Rebel and that was my first official wedding. A year later I quit my day job and was shooting weddings full time.
