Pictage PartnerCon LA!

I look forward to this conference every year as a way to meet new people & stay connected with our clients who come from all over the country. I am also still doing photography of my own as well, so the presentations are invaluable. After these two days I am always so pumped to get home and work on my businesses.

I didn't bring a camera (ha!) but Kenny Kim did and here's the three of us hanging out. Thanks for the photo Kenny!

Kenny is the man. He's also very good at documenting events & just finished touring with DJ in the Freedom Bus. Check out his blog here.

Looking forward to next year!

Design Inspired by Fashion

At pink penny we love clean designs that showcase the beautiful imagery we get to work with each day. We're always looking for inspiration and often find it in the pages of our favorite fashion magazines. These are two layouts I'd like to try and translate into wedding book designs soon (minus all the text of course)

This could especially work with bridal portraits

And I like the positioning of the small vertical images on the left across from a full bleed on the right.

It's fun finding these bits of inspiration and the challenge to produce fresh but timeless design keeps us on our toes. Where do you find inspiration?
