New items added to online ordering

You'll notice some new items added in our online proofing system. This will give you many more options for your engagement, bridal, and wedding photo orders. One thing we've added is the ability to purchase a high resoltion JPEG of any image and have it emailed to you. This is useful when you need to send digital images to a newspaper for an announcement, or for emailing photos to friends and family. Also if you're having a person or company design your invitations, programs, thnak you cards, etc. you'll find the digital download system very easy to use and your designer will appreciate it too.

We've also added "fine art prints." These acid-free and lignin-free archival photographs are printed on the finest fiber art paper, have torn edges, and are float matted and ready for framing. Also available are archival canvas prints that are gallery wrapped on a wooden stretcher frame and shipped to you ready for framing.



We trashed Becky's dress!

Becky got married back in June of this year, and today we met up for some bridal portraits. We didn't do anything too crazy, but since she was already married, she definitely wasn't worried about getting her dress dirty! At one point I had her sitting on an old radiator in an alley downtown. Thanks Becky for being so cool!

Christmas lights....

Last night (11/18/06) was the first night for "Lights of the Ozarks" on the Fayetteville Square. We were photographing Molly & Coy's wedding reception at the Fayetteville Town Center on the square, and I just had to take them out into the cold for a little while to get some photos with the lights. Congratulations Molly & Coy!



We're heading into what is known in the wedding industry as the "off season." We have a few select dates open. We have very special pricing incentives available to any weddings happening now through the end of February. This is something we do every year to fill up the rest of our dates during the off season. Please call us toll free at 1-888-391-9907 for more details!


...then comes baby in a baby carriage!

A common question we get from our wedding clients is "do you photograph babies?" Although I strictly focus on wedding photography, my wife Kori has revamped our baby photography, called Hudson Life Photography.

Kori also offers maternity photos, in case you ever find your self in need of that!


Trash the Dress!!!

I have several photos featured on a new website called Trash The Dress. The site is devoted to images from photographers who have photographed a bride "trashing" her wedding dress, usually on a day after the wedding. Brides can be photographed trashing their dresses by wading in water, rolling around in the dirt, or anythis else you can dream of. The idea behind this is that in all realtiy, your future daughter will not want to wear your wedding dress when she gets married. (Have you ever seen a 30 year old wedding dress, really?) So then what are you saving it for? Trash it! I offer these sessions at no cost. Please contact me if you'd like to set one up. It's a great way to unwind after your wedding experience!


Game Day!

I got to photograph host of ESPN's "Game Day" show Kirk Herbstreit, Arkansas Razorback Darren McFadden, and Head Coach Houston Nutt on Friday before the big game against Tennessee.

If you're waiting on Wedding Photos.....

If you are waiting on your wedding photographs and CDs... please rest assured that we are working on them every day. Our associate Yerby got way behind in his editing so I had him bring us all of his master discs. Besides the weddings that Kori and I have photographed together, we are editing all of Yerby's weddings going back several months. We sent out six orders last week and we have about 18 weddings to go until we are caught up. Our goal is to have everything edited, retouched, printed, burned, and shipped out of our office by the end of this month, Nov. 30th. If you haven't sent us your current address since you were married, please be sure to do that so that we will know where to ship your photos and CDs to once they are ready.

Remember, these are photos you will have for the rest of your life. I would rather you wait three or four months and let us work on them and make them look their best, as opposed to us rushing them and making them look sloppy.

Thank you for your patience!
Jason + Kori


My Wife

After a recent wedding we were walking to the car and I noticed a cool spotlight on the sidewalk. I told Kori "stop" and I snapped these photos....

Just some photos.....

These photos were all taken within an hour from each other on Rich Mountain near Mena, Arkansas on October 27, 2006. Just thought I would share them here. A couple of Kori and then some random images.


I don't mean to brag, but...

I don't mean to brag, but I just love getting comments like this in my email. Especially from people I don't even know. I guess we're doing something right! Today I recieved the following message:

Hello. I just happened to be surfing around on Weddingmanor.com and came across your vendor ad. Beautifully done portfolio. I've worked with several photographers here in Florida and I have to say you have by far the best work I have seen in awhile. Thought you would enjoy the compliment!

Beautiful Brides Inc.

From a Mother of a Groom...

When couples and/or their parent's share comments like this with me, it really reminds me why I am a wedding photographer in the first place:

Jason and Kori - thank you so much for photographing Brent's and Megan's wedding. I just can't imagine trusting my first born to anyone else. The previews are amazing as anticipated! You two are a great match and I look forward to watching your business continue to boom.

Thanks again.
