Sipper Photography Branded USB Drives by USB Memory Direct

Hello all…

Hope this message finds you all well during these crazy times.  I have been doing photography for over 20 years now and it was sad to see business slow, weddings and events postponed and even cancelled due to the Coronavirus.  I know it’s a little tough for the small business now, but as we slowly get back up and running it may be a good time to go back to the basics.  From the moment we started Sipper Photography back in 2008, it was important to us to incorporate branding into our company with our style, color scheme and logo.  Our logo, branding photos, business card and website have made us stand out in our industry and be recognized.  This is something that is especially important in times like this.  As we make our way back to shooting and servicing our clients at Sipper Photography we want to always present them with a great product in the photography work and how we give our clients the final product. In this digital age of photography, we do offer our clients their digital files from any product or portrait session. At this point in time, we offer a digital download or a USB of images to share the images.  Recently, we came across USB Memory Direct for some new USB drives.  The great thing about them is that I got to customize a drive in color and type to match our business branding at Sipper Photography.  I went with a classic style drive, because we are all about a “Simple and Modern” look.  Much like our photos and tagline we work our art form in a “Simple + Modern + Casual” style.  At USB Memory Direct we designed just that.

The DE Custom Flash Drive has a simple clean design that we customized the color to match the red, black and white color scheme we have in our logo.  They look amazing and I can’t wait to share them with some of our clients.

If you want something fancier, they have it.  It looks like they can customize shapes of your USB as well as the color, so check them out! Remember your branding is the face of your business.  Always put your best face forward!  Hopefully, USB Memory Direct can help!

Now, for my amazing product shots of our new drives.  Usually this is Jeff’s specialty as I am always about the people and portraits but over the years I’ve been around product photography enough to know what I am doing there too.  Take a look.

Wishing you all the best in life and your business as we continue to take on this crazy year in 2020! J+D

Country Theme Wedding at The Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach | Kevin + Shannon

You are going to love this country style wedding theme that we shot with An All Inclusive Event at The Red Horse Barn.   I just love the flowers, they are by floral designer Melia Carlson in Laguna Beach.  With pops of yellow sunflowers and red accents this wedding photographs so beautifully.

I fell in love with Kevin and Shannon and their story from my first meeting with them.  We ended up having an impromptu breakfast for our photography consult at The Broken Yolk in Orange.  I actually love meeting like this because over bacon and eggs, I found out this couple knew each other since High School.  The two were reunited at a recent reunion and Shannon said she didn’t go out with him right away.  I giggled…cause look at them now.  Such a beautiful couple, who found love a little later in life, but a beautiful love none the less.  I am so happy we all connected and we got to photograph their wedding.

As you scroll through the photos, you will see one of our favorite parts which was their officiant.  All dressed to impress in the trench coat, cowboy hat and Wanted ads which fit the look for this country theme ceremony for our couple.  At one point during the ceremony he took out a flask and took a drink to congratulate the couple.  The crowd all laughed and Kevin and Shannon said their I do’s.

Congratulations to Kevin and Shannon!  Thank you for having us capture the magic of your day at The Red Horse Barn.

Simple letters signifying a bride and groom's names add to the primitive look and feel of an outdoor wedding.

The groom's cowboy boots, presented to him as a gift from his bride moments before the wedding started. Boots make an incredible gift for your western themed wedding.

A relaxed modern portrait of the groom kicking back in a rocking chair on the front porch of the Red Horse Barn's groom's room.

Boutonnieres for the groom and his groomsman of white roses set against a weathered wood table.

The groom's reaction to seeing his bride during the first look. Having the first look is beneficial to help alleviate the nervousness before the wedding.

A first look is a wonderful modern tradition that allows the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony. The best part about this is the quiet moments alone the couple get before the chaos of the wedding gets going.

A Modern Casual portrait of the bride and groom standing in front of the fence at the Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach, CA. The lighting here is just so perfect. Soft and light with just a little bit of backlight.

Cowboy boots under a wedding dress always tell people you are ready for a country party. This couple opted to both wear boots as it fit in with the western theme they had for their casual wedding.

Is there anything better than a picture of a gorgeous bride and her handsome groom taken in warm, soft light?

This gorgeous centerpiece consisting of sunflowers, white and red roses, and tiny white flowers adds to the rustic country themed wedding at the Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach, CA.

Choose a seat, not a side is written on the sign behind the wedding ceremony seating area of this beautiful outdoor wedding in Huntington Beach, CA. This is a great new tradition of blending multiple families into one.

This is a photo of an old west minister at a country themed wedding. He is holding a wanted poster of Jesse James and carried both a gun and a whiskey flask to the ceremony.

The minister in the picture could easily find himself in the middle of a spaghetti western, complete with cowboy hat, pocket watch and wanted poster for Jesse James.

This is a photo of the bride and groom staring deeply at each other during their agrarian ceremony at the Red Horse Barn.

The first kiss is a wonderful wedding tradition that takes place at the end of the ceremony. This rustic service came complete with an old west inspired minister, complete with Stetson cowboy hat, wanted sign and long trench coat similar to Wyatt Earp and lawmen of the old west.

A flying veil shot makes for a whimsical take on the standard bride and groom wedding shoot. To achieve this, you either need to wait for the wind to cooperate or have the maid of honor lightly hold the veil up and then drop it right before the photo is taken.

On a back trail of the Red Horse Barn, the groom carries his bride.

Sometimes a simple wedding portrait in a rocking chair on the front porch of a country house is all you need.

Styled Wedding Shoot at The Anaheim Hotel

Recently, Sipper Photography partnered with The Anaheim Hotel and several other talented vendors in the wedding industry to create a wedding styled shoot.  From the first time I walked into the lobby at The Anaheim Hotel, my creative juices were flowing with all of the ideas to shoot weddings at the venue.  The Anaheim Hotel is located just across the street from the Disneyland Resort and offers a beautiful property for your next wedding or event.  There are several locations at the venue to have your events, including the newly renovated Cabana Room and Riviera Ballroom.  One of my favorites is the outdoor Veranda which makes the perfect spot for your wedding ceremony or outdoor party.
Since the hotel has a mid-century modern theme to its decor, we took that and incorporated it into our shoot.  We used the bold colors of Turquoise, Yellow and Orange with touches of Gray to create some beautiful tablescapes and scenes for our wedding couple.  We worked with a talented group of ladies and two gorgeous models who you can tell are a couple in real life.  I mean, just look at that chemistry. 

All of the wedding details were headed by Marissa Sanchez, event planner at The Modern Party.  It was a fantastic modern wedding scene created at The Anaheim Hotel.  Thank you to all, what an amazing collaboration of wedding professionals.

Smog City Brewing Co. Engagement Session | Ryan + Erin

Smog City Brewing Co. is a craft brewing company in Torrance, California.  This Los Angeles Brewery was kind enough to host us for the engagement shoot we did with Ryan and Erin.  I always tell my couples to make your engagement session about you and your relationship.  Sometimes couples will choose a theme.  Others just want to do nice portraits to document their love and engagement at a park, the beach or other location of choice.  For this couple, they wanted to incorporate their love for craft beer and the brewing process.  So what better place to shoot then a brewery where all of this magic happens.  Ryan, the groom to be has been brewing his own beer for about 10 years now.  Since becoming a couple, Erin and Ryan brew together and will be blending a special brew to celebrate with at their wedding in October.

I loved shooting this session.  The industrial location makes for a fun background for photos and it really fit for Ryan and Erin’s personalities.  Thank you, to Smog City for allowing us to document this couple in your world of craft beer.  The beer was great, the couple was fabulous and the photos are spectacular.  A big congratulations to Ryan and Erin on your engagement.  We can’t wait to shoot with you guys for your wedding.

Paris in a Cup Bridal Shower | Orange Photographer

I shot the most beautiful bridal shower last weekend. It was hosted at Paris in a Cup Tea & Salon Cafe in Orange.  The theme for this shower was a combination of Paris and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and I’ll explain why.  The groom-to-be is from France, so we have the Paris theme.  The bride has loved the movie Beauty in the Beast since she was a little girl and the couple met when they worked together for Disney.  Paris in a Cup is a gorgeous Paris themed cafe which made for the perfect venue for this event.  The food looks amazing.  All freshly baked scones and pastries to serve with your tea.  For lunch, a fresh salad and assortment of finger sandwiches to please all.  Just fabulous!!  When your visiting Old Towne Orange near the Orange Circle, stop by and check it out.  I can’t wait to go back and have a little lunch myself.

We hope you enjoy the photos from Paris!
