November, as it seems, has returned to its previously scheduled programming with a chilly and damp fall Friday morning. The bonus week of summer escaped just before the weekend, but there are plenty of warm memories of summer and colorful days of October packed into this album from Patience’s Senior Sessions.
Soak up the bright summer colors, wildflowers in bloom and warm August afternoon glow of these summertime Senior Session album pages.
Cool autumn air, golden light, deep hues, and warm tones of outdoor October portraits. Pumpkins, Indian corn, hay bales, and leaves across the yard – fall favorites in Indiana.

I was pretty excited when this Wedding Guest Book arrived so I grabbed the video camera and started rambling recording. Here’s a preview of the Custom Guest Books included in our Memoirs Photography Package and available for all weddings!
I’ve got to brag on the couple, the idea for the themed shoot was totally theirs. At our first meeting, the bride Caroline mentioned her fiance Josh was in the Navy and she wanted to shoot a 1945 themed engagement session in tribute to the famous photo of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square. (Note for couples looking for photographers – throwing creative, fun ideas at us will really make the brainstorms take off!) It was all downhill from there.
Update – see more of the session’s photos here.
I’m thrilled with the hinged paper construction that lets guests write right up to the middle of the book, no bending down the pages to add your wishes near the middle of the book!

Another added bonus was the thicker paper used for this design. One concern was that a pen would make indentations on the next page’s photos, but the thicker paper and using fine tipped Sharpie markers did more than enough to prevent this concern.
Tips on Guest Books from photographer and designer Eric Bucholtz –
- – Personalize! Anything personalized to your clients’ engagement and wedding story will always be a hit! The engagement session is entirely about the Soonlyweds to have a relaxing shoot away from wedding planning while getting a preview of your work to let them know they’ve made a great choice including your photography in their upcoming wedding day.
- – Album Design: Backgrounds. Unless your design concept is for an all white, black or solid page background, personalize your photography even further in the design process by including complimenting colors and textures on album backgrounds. For this vintage book light paper, sand, and other complimenting textures were used to give a freshly printed book a little age to match the feel of the session.
- – Sunset shooting. Especially out on the beach, stick around after sunset. Dusk is a colorful time full of sunset colors without fighting with the sun at the horizon. This means fewer silhouettes against the sun, less high power fill flash, and more available light photos with that great dusk coloring. Aside from the photographic technicalities, especially when the subjects are having fun, there’s no need to hurry and pack up as soon as the sun sets below the horizon.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
Now that it seems Spring is finally here in South Bend, Indiana, everything is greening up beautifully outside. Today, of course, it seems everyone is trying to do the same for Saint Pat’s celebrations. (Of course, with the exception of my friend Joel who wore red in support of those with red/green color blindness.)
What better time to celebrate Irish heritage than with our favorite photos of the LOVE of the Irish?!

Ever since I began including an Engagement Session in the Memoirs Photography Packages it’s been a busy summer snapping on location with my awesome couples. I’ve had too much fun to limit it to just one package so now ALL my Wedding Photography Packages INCLUDE an Engagement Session!
I’d like to sidetrack for a sec – a COMPLIMENTARY ENGAGEMENT SESSION!?! You got it!
During shoots I have been having a blast getting to hang out with my “Soonlyweds” engaged couples. Trips to the beach, strolls around Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s campuses, parks… and did I mention FUN? Take a break from all the hard work you’re putting into planning your big day and just let it out. Want to shout, laugh, run in the waves, play in the park or just dance to leave your planning behind and hang out with your photographers? Go for it!
Something NEW I’ll be offering is a Custom Guestbook chock full of the photos from your relaxing and fun Engagement Session. Instead of just a plain page for your guests to sign a book you will tuck away somewhere, why not show off your photos too?! Keep those names in a book you’ll look at over and over again!
So for the FIRST EVER design of this kind from eB Photography… feast your wedding planning, photo loving eyes on this page-turner put together from Jaclyn and Tim’s engagement shoot. Enjoy!
