This post contains some of my very favorite things: sweet, sweet baby photos, volleyball and friendships. 

Coming up on 7 years, two of my very best friends met on my 21st birthday for the first time.  Both of whom I met through volleyball.  Five short years later, they got married.  Another year(ish) later they found out they were expecting, which also happened to be the day before my wedding.  And finally sweet Lucy Louise Klanecky made her way into this world the day Nebraska Volleyball won the National Championship!  Pretty darn crazy, right?

Traveling Abroad Hacks https://www.lindsygumbphotography.com/blog/2018/1/travelingabroadhacks

BLESSED ARE THE CURIOUS FOR THEY SHALL HAVE ADVENTURES - LOVELLE DRACHMAN

 

Traveling is one of my very favorite things.  Going on adventures, trying new foods, new languages, and meeting amazing people are just a few of my reasons for traveling.  But before you start out on your trip around the globe here are some travel hacks.

  • Passport
    • When applying or renewing your passport, you will need a professional passport photo.  Let LG Photography LLC help you:  
      • Set of (2) Passport Prints - One Digital Image - Passport Application { ALL FOR $25 }
    • Make two copies of your passport, one for yourself and one to leave at home with someone you trust.  Scan your passport so you have a digital copy. 
  • Medication
    • If you take any medications pack enough (plus a little extra) to cover your entire trip, and make sure all the medications are in their original packaging.
    • TSA Medication Tips
  • Packing
    • Check the weather well in advance for time of year you will be visiting and then again before you pack, hopefully it will be sunny skies :)
    • Check to see what you can and can't bring in your carry-on & checked bag.
    • Pack light, as the old saying goes, bring twice the money and half the clothes.
    • I have loved using travel space saver bags.
  • Technology 
    • Find places that offer free Wi-Fi or try booking hotels that offer free Wi-Fi.
    • Apps - Look into apps that can help you while traveling.
    • Converters and adapters, to make sure your electronics stay charged.
    • Talk to your cell phone provider to see what plans they can offer you.
  • Money
    • Talk to your bank about your travel plans.
      • Make sure your card will work to the country you are traveling too.
      • Tell them exact dates & places.
      • Conversion rate &/or fees.
      • Don't bring large amounts of the US dollar.  Most ATM's have the capability of changing the language to English.  

 

Happy Travels!!!

The Importance of Printing Photos https://www.lindsygumbphotography.com/blog/2017/12/the-importance-of-printing-photos So much time is put into planning a wedding, the hours dreaming about the ONE perfect day.  All the details, colors, dress, food, invitations, flowers and the moments spent with your fiancé, family & friends.  And the same goes for family photos, trying to get everyone in the same place at the same time with some type of coordinating outfit can almost be impossible.  But what is probably one of the most important things and most people don’t follow through with? PRINTING

Printing is the finished process.  And probably most of us fall really short when it comes to finishing an image as a whole.  Printing your photos is really, really important.  Memories become tangible and it reminds us of where we have been and the moments we cherished during that time. 

“It has long been acknowledged that family photos on display in a home help boost a child’s sense of identity and create a sense of belonging. Each time they walk by a family photo, which is countless times each day, a message is sent—

You, my dear child, are important. You matter. You have a special place in this world. You are a part of this thing we call family and we love you.

I wonder what they think when they walk by a USB drive?” - Missy Mwac

So I am taking my own advice, printing up a few photos and hanging them up. 

Every time I walk by my "wedding wall" I get all the good feels.  So happy to have so many good memories from one of the best days of my life.

Wedding Invitations https://www.lindsygumbphotography.com/blog/2017/5/wedding-invites

Wedding invitations/stationary can be so confusing and time consuming, but they don't have to be.  Obviously with a background in Graphic Design I was so excited to design my own wedding stationary.  I felt the wedding theme and decorations really started to develop and grow when I started designing my stationary.  So below is some helpful advice to get you started on wedding invitations (or you can just give me a call and I can start designing them for you)! 

Save-The-Dates

These are defiantly not required to send out, but if they are within your budget and you want to give extended family and out-of-state guests a heads up on the date and accommodations, they are a great idea.  Most commonly Save-The-Dates are sent out 6-8 months prior to your wedding date, but if its a destination wedding make sure to send out 8-10 months in advance.  However, I sent mine out 4 months in advance ;) 

Save-The-Dates can be much less formal than wedding invitations, so take the chance to show off your personalities.  They can be anything from magnets to post cards to 5x7 cards. 

Do Include

  • Bride & Groom's Names
  • Wedding Date
  • Location (City & State)
  • Accommodations 
  • Wedding Website
  • 'Formal Invitation to Follow

Do Not Include

  • Registry Details
  • RSVP Card

 

Wedding Invitations

The formal invitations have a lot more rules and regulations.  No matter how beautiful they are you need to convey some basic information.  Remember in school when you learned the 5 W's: Who, What, Why, When, Where?  Yep, thats exactly what you need to put into your invite. 

THE HOST LINE: Who is hosting the wedding?  In the past it was the bride's family that hosted the wedding. But times have changed, weddings can be hosted by sets/singles of parents, bride/groom, or entire families.  A more general line, (like we used above) "Together with their families"

THE NAMES: This line pretty much explains itself, yet I found it difficult.  Whose name goes first? (Traditionally that honor belongs to the bride) Will you list middle names, wait what is your middle name?  All joking aside there are no right or wrong answers. 

THE ACTION LINE:  There are probably a million different ways you could go here.  "At the celebration of their marriage," "As they exchange vows of love and commitment," or "As they finally tie the knot."

THE INFORMATION: Time, date, and location (with address) should all be listed.  You want to keep this short & sweet to get the information across. 

THE PARTY LINE: Whoop, Whoop! It's time to celebrate and you want to let your guest know what is going down after the exchange of vows.  You can keep it short or go into greater detail.  I choose to go short and then added a detailed timeline card to the invites.  I felt that a detailed timeline was important for my guests to be informed. 

 

Here is a group shot of (mostly) all of my wedding stationary that I designed for the big day. 

  • Mint to be (Fold over labels on mints)
  • Save-The-Dates
  • Wedding Invitations
  • Rehearsal Invitations
  • Thank you card
  • Drink Coaster

Good Luck & Happy Wedding Planning!!!

Welcome https://www.lindsygumbphotography.com/blog/2017/5/wedding-wisdom

Welcome Y'all!

Weddings are meant to be enjoyed, re-lived, and treasured for a lifetime.  Weddings have always held a special place in my heart, especially since starting my photography company.  Wedding photography isn't just taking and delivering some nice photos.  

I'm saying its about getting to know you personally, building friendships, investing in your love story, and spending the day with you on one of your best days of your life.  It's amazing that I get to capture and document emotions, details and memories that will never fade with time.  

Just recently getting married myself I would love to share with you some tips, tricks & helpful wedding wisdom over the next couple of weeks.
