Rangefinder Magazine | February 2011 Issue

This was such an honor for us to be featured in Rangefinder Magazine in the big WPPI Wedding Issue, February 2011. It was incredible timing as we spoke at WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) this year at a Platform class that held 1,000 people. OMG... I was so nervous, I talked so fast that poor Bob didn't get a work in edgewise! I was trying to get 8 hours of material into 2 hours. I need to work on that. It was an amazing opportunity, one that Bob and I will be forever grateful. Thank you to everyone who came and heard us speak. You guys rock our world!!!

Our photo also graced the cover of the WPPI Show Guide. A huge thank you to George Varanakis, Arlene Evans, and Kate Volpe for giving us this honor. And a heartfelt thank you to Peter Kotsinadelis for writing such a wonderful article about us! Photographers, if you are not subscribed to this magazine, you're missing out.

To top things off, Canon used another one of Bob's photos (of Rebecca & Kenny) in a Rangefinder Ad. Thank you Robert Schall for all your kindnesses!!!

Humbled beyond belief...

Bob & Dawn Davis Signature Collection with Triple Scoop Music

Triple Scoop Music has made quite the name for themselves in the music licensing industry service for photographers, videographers, and creative professionals! In just 5 short years, their world-class music collections include Grammy and Emmy winning artists, as well as acclaimed songwriters and musicians from around the globe.

We are excited to be working with the founders of Triple Scoop Music on our very own collection of music. When they approached us over a year ago about creating a customized collection, we were beyond excited. We spent many hours pouring over each song, loving so many of them, until we came up with the perfect 10 songs that would match our style for wedding and engagements.

We will be premiering our "Love Story" collection at WPPI in Vegas at our Platform Class this Sunday, March 20th at 3:30-5:30pm. We will be giving away the entire collection and some gift certificates for individual songs at our Plus Class AND our Platform. They will have samples of our collection at every one of their listening stations on the Expo floor. We hope you love the songs as much as we do!!!

Fine Art Books by GraphiStudio

Look what came in the mail this week. Janny and James's wedding book!!!! Ohhhhh, I'm so in love! James is a photographer and between the two of us, we took forever selecting their images for their book. Since their wedding was in May 2008, I can wholeheartedly say........ it was well worth the wait!!!

Our book company, GraphiStudio is the BEST book company in the world. And that's fair to say since they are worldwide and located in Italy. They have amazing products and we have always offered the best to our clients. I found out from a really cool photographer, Belen Aquino, that GraphiStudio offers custom engraving on their varnished covers. I immediately knew that James would love this because he's just so cool. I asked him to send me the artwork from East Six, the wedding invitation company they hired, so I could have it engraved on the cover. And violà! Look at this beauty! You can check out their book design here.

If you are a photographer reading this blog, we highly, highly recommend GraphiStudio.

Jordana Dale | Our Intern

Bob & I have our very first intern working with us for a couple of months and I'm so EXCITED. Her name is Jordana and she's a doll. We receive so many requests to intern and for some reason her email stood out among them all. I think it was fate! God works in mysterious ways. She was born and raised in a small town in Georgia. When she first spoke to me she called me "ma'am" which secretly made me feel old... haha! She calls me Dawn now. Thank God. She has 4 sisters, OMG, and all their names start with a "J". She definitely has a beautiful sense of family and a big desire to pursue photography. She says "y'all" sometimes and it always makes me smile!

She's been assisting Bob with his lighting and learning a lot in the process. She's a quick study and picks up on things fast. She's also helping me and Michele in the office. She fits fits into our business wonderfully and we're so happy to have her around. Please join us in welcoming her! You can find her on Facebook too. If you're coming to our workshop next week, you'll get to meet her!

We had a fun family session with Ed Weiland the other day in his studio and Jordana came along. She's fun and loves to pose! Here's some cute photos of her. Bob took the last photo of her outdoors. Isn't she adorable?

Gorgeous models, a white horse and a vintage car to start! Thank you Ed Weiland for all the help with finding models and the location for this workshop!
