Event Photography in Madison WI & Milwaukee WI

Wednesday:  Share Random Photos

If I could have enough time to do all the editing I need to do .. that would be great.  Especially where family get togethers are concerned.  Last summer two of my sisters, my soon to be brother in law and several friends decided to do the Color Run in Milwaukee WI.  I had never heard of this event until then.  I did some research and thought it looked like a blast.  It was.

Throughout the course they have various color stations where the runners/walkers are hit with a bit of color.  We were positioned at the blue station.  At some points all you could see was blue “smoke” and then one person would burst through.  And each and every person had a smile on their face.  It was crazy.  It almost made me want to do it but that feeling passed very quickly.  Ha!

If you’re into running/walking and color – then do the next Color Run!  Here’s a link for more info.  They run all over the country so I’m sure there will be one where ever you are located.

These are the days of our lives …

I’m kind of tired of trying to market my business.

Okay, five minutes just passed as I stared at that statement.  I’m feeling equal measures of panic and peace.  As a small business owner, a part of every day for the last 11 years has been spent trying to let the world (meaning Madison WI) know I’m here and to attract new clients.  I have the best web site designer who has created this beautiful site and I feel like I’m not using it to it’s full potential.  That ends right now.

Today marks the first day of the new blog here at sweeneysphotography.com.  I will no longer be trying to sell or market anything on the blog section of the site.  There are hundreds of portrait samples in the Galleries.  If you want to know services, prices or specials – please click on the tabs above.  There is a ton of information throughout the site and if it’s not – then send me an email or give me a call.  I would love to talk to you!!  Better yet, stop by and we’ll chat over some of my fabulous coffee or tea – I may even have some Chex Mix to share.

So here’s how the blog is going to look from here on out.  Each weekday I will be sharing my photographs.  Not just wedding or kids pictures, I will be sharing it all – even personal photos.  I will share a bit of the story behind the photographs and in the case of my “Art” – I may even be showing you all a bit of the process by way of video (but only if it’s a good hair day).

Wednesday is now:  Share Random Photographs From The Past

These were taken backstage while the stylists prepared their models for a fashion/hair show in Milwaukee WI at the Art Museum.

Photographs from the past

Recently I was looking through some of my older image files.  A client had called looking to replace some lost photos I had done for him a few years ago.  I found the ones he was looking for and a few more I had completely forgotten about.  Like any professional photographer – I have a lot of images stored away.

These were among the images.  They are former President Bill Clinton from February 2008.  He was on the campaign trail for then Presidential candidate, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.  This was his stop in Madison WI.

Wedding trends in Madison WI 2013

What’s trendy in 2013 for weddings?  Well to start with Pantone recently announced it’s “Color Of The Year” – Emerald Green!  We added some of this fabulous color to the site to help inspire those that visit us here.  They are already wearing the color on the Red Carpets in Hollywood and I’m thinking there will be a few bridesmaids wearing it this season as well.

Also, cupcakes are still a hot ticket for those spunky couples that just can’t do traditional wedding cake.  I think it’s a great way to add flavors that everyone will love without all the leftover cake that will dry out while you’re on your honeymoon!

And last but not least – 2013 is going glam!  Yes it’s true.  This year look for brides to be bringing back a bit of old Hollywood mixed in with today’s hot ticket designers.  Luxurious faux furs, sparkly bling in all the right places (then again, is there a wrong place for bling?) and some life changing shoes.
