Kadie and Greg’s Scrumdidlyumptious Day! {i.e. THEIR WEDDING!! EEEEEE!}

Where do I even begin?? We LOVE Kadie and Greg. We love a lot of people, but we REALLY love Kadie and Greg. I think I want to follow them around and photograph them every day just to soak up some of the happiness and joy that they exude when they are together. Plus, I mean Kliff (serious dog-model-extraordinaire). Enough said.

We love them and their families so much, that when the idea was presented to us that we’d be able to test out this new form of blogging via “Spark Storytelling” (meaning, I saw it on a Facebook ad targeted at me, decided that meant that Adobe was officially and formally asking me to make one because of their love of our work, and just took it upon myself to do one-teehee…hee..e.  The other way does SOUND better, though, doesn’t it?), we knew exactly whose wedding to start with (*More logistics below for any fellow wedding and/or small business vendors who would like us to create one for them. I mean, HOW much cooler could this beautifully magazine-like phone and tablet-designed blogging system get, right? I know. IknowIknowIknooooooow!!!). The Spark Pages can be time-consuming, yes (especially when trying to find the vendors and their websites to be sure and add in in case we can’t remember who they were a couple of months later), but our old blog style (which we will probably still do from time to time….Although as I’m sure you can tell, our blog is the last thing on our list when we’re deep into the seasons-o-the-weddings, so many times we have to skip over weddings that we LOVE in hopes that we’ll be able to come back to them! And other times, we are holding out for something special, like D Weddings, Southern Weddings, The Knot Texas, and of course our all-time favorite, 360 West Weddings. Plus, you know, our new DFW LookBook Magazine (still an e-issue only for now), which is always one of the ones we save our VERY best stuff for!).


This “Wedding Essay ” idea has been brewing around in the back of my mind ever since I saw that Adobe started doing these amazingly-fabulous{ly amazing! Did I say that already?}, BEAUTIFUL storytelling pages for professional photographers and really, anyone who loves pretty storytelling with images as your main focus while being able to scroll, tap, and click from your phone or tablet without any weird desktop-designed websites that never did truly work. We are going to call them “Photo Essays” because to us, they are so much more than a blog (you get to scroll around on your PHONE, y’all! And your tablet. And whatever else fits into your hand. Amazing, I know. Also, Adobe just came out with an even NEWER version right beforehand, so even more the reason to get to play with this. You may start seeing a lot more of these beauts in the future!

[….And, yes, we had previously been stuck in the good ol’ 2007-2010 era of websites for quite some time, and the OCD side of me was about ready to dry heave any time I saw our oldest site that is still somehow at www.avesphotographicdesign.com. (Please don’t laugh. It was 2007, so basically, that’s like 1934 in dog years. Or something…..]

….So if you’d like to relish in those 2007-2010 {but really through 2016-ugh!} “Glory Days”, as we like to not-so-affectionately call them, by all means, do it NOW, because that pink texture-y site is about to go buh-bye :).




BECAUSE…..SOME BIG NEWS IS COMING! (For us, anyway. Our beautiful new website is finally alllllmost ready {we just got the mobile version back from Emma and Josh. who specialize not only in Wedding Photography, but are also avid Showiteers (basically meaning that they know everything to know about Showit.com and then some!). They have both answered all of my million questions a hundred-thousand times over, even though what I paid them to do was to just simply convert our new website to mobile, but they must have known that I’m OCD and that I need help when it comes to not shutting up. Most of the time. When there’s not wedding cake or another wedding-style sweet keeping me from chattering on.


We are SO very excited to share these with anyone who hasn’t yet seen this on my (Lauren Aves’s) Personal Facebook Page. And honestly, if you haven’t followed us there yet, you’re in for a treat because you maaaay even get more wedding-and-photography-related fun.

- Two more administratorious Facebook (yes, I made that word up) things: Our Business Facebook Page (which you should ABSOLUTELY also follow, because we post flash sales, regular sales, and just all kinds of tips and goodies on it throughout the year) is Aves Photography on Facebook.

- However, because Facebook won’t let us have a mapped-out location without also keeping the name “Aves Photographic Design” {**more on that ridiculousness at the end of this, too}, we additionally have a page called Aves Photographic Design on Facebook. Yes, we know we can merge the two pages. Yes, we’ve tried. And yes, that try has been denied multiple times because “4909 Camp Bowie doesn’t exist in Fort Worth”. Or at least, that’s what they tell us. Hence all of the mail mishaps-lol.

TLDR: Just go click on those three pages and follow/like all of them, and maybe you’ll get 1/3 or 1/1110th of what we actually post unless we pay! Bahaha!



…Not that I’m bragging. But sort-of… ;). Because, let’s just be honest. We {Professional Photographers as a whole, not just ME, or anything like that! Most of the time…} are a braggy bunch of artists, us photographers, and if we don’t brag, we just disappear. Therefore, you must cheerlead for us and make us feel special. It’s all part of the process, daaahlang! ;)


Click on the image below and enjoy from your phone, ipad, tablet/computer/whatever! It’s got to be silly, how excited I am about these things. Silly, I tell ya! ;) But when you go to it, you will see why! All of the vendors who we love are also included in this! :)

Kadie & Greg


Lauren and Will
