Best Holiday Cards of 2011

Christmas card photographyChristmas cards and holiday cards are one of the best ways to use our photography. I really look forwardChristmas card photography to "card season" when cards from our clients land in our mailbox. These are beautiful, imaginative creations using our pictures and all of them tell a story. A great card bookmarks those important moments. It is returned to and remembered often, whether in a scrap book, on the mantle or on the refrigerator. They are beautifully printed, usually on fine watercolor paper, and they feature great design and styling. Here are some of the best cards we received this year. At top, Jenny and James were married at the Garden of the Gods Club in June. Their card featured a wonderful sepia image of a touching portrait from their wedding. The card was printed by Tiny Prints, one of several popular online card companies that allow you to create a card using your own photographs. At left is a card from Maggie and Matt, married at the Pauline Chapel in November. It's both a Christmas card and a wedding announcement.Bar Mitzvah photography

Christmas card photography Above, a card from Brian and his family. I photographed Brian's Bar Mitzvah this year at the Broadmoor's Cheyenne Mountain Lodge. I love this relaxed and natural family portrait.  Left, this is a two image card from Barrell's family. I photographed Barrell and Jacob's wedding at the Broadmoor in August. Barrell's brother was also married last summer in Georgia. Same family, two different brides and grooms, two different photographers and two photographs that play off each other. Thanks to everyone for all of your wonderful inspiration this card season! — Sean
