Today our share comes from Denise of Modern Wedding Photography.Â She writes, "I threw my dear friend a bridal shower at a movie theater. Her wedding will be at an arboretum later this month. I wanted to tie in the shower favors to her garden themed wedding. We made muffins shaped like bugs-(bugffins) and put them and a pink tea bag in pink gift bags (since the bride will be wearing pink). I used the Fun & Flirty - Save the Date Card Collection style 4 design to create the gift bag & cup labels and 5x7 card that went into the bag. I happened to have a photo of her from about 17 years ago in front of the place she will be getting married, which I placed on one side of the card. The other side of the card said, "see you in the garden", with the wedding date and a quick thank you note. I had the 5x7 cards printed by Millers. The Fun & Flirty template had a garden feel and they were a bit hit with everyone."

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
