What to do with all those digital images from wedding events?

Over the course of your wedding weekend, you’ll collect tons of photos on your own digital camera, friends will share the photos they took at your wedding and pre-wedding events, and you’ll have those one-time-use cameras pix from your guest tables…all stored on different disks, on photo-share websites, in shoe boxes (even pretty, bridal-designed ones.) Now, Kodak has a brilliant opportunity for you to take all of those gorgeous pictures and create a professional-quality heirloom album on the best paper possible, designed by their layout pros. Compared to this, those slip-in plastic photo sleeve albums are laughable!

We just started putting our wedding photo album together, using the easy software upload, one-click photo upload, and just a few days later, we got these great proofs:

Gorgeous, right? I love the layout and the way it gives such a pretty new life to our ‘leftover’ wedding photos, the ones our pro photographer didn’t take [actually, some of these were taken by a paparazzi who was trying to cash in on our wedding photos! We captured him and got full rights and ownership of our wedding photos!] And now, instead of sitting in a blue shoebox, they’re going to be in this album!!

Strongly consider getting Kodak’s Professional Collections for your wedding pix, ask parents to get it for you as a gift, and hey, wedding vendors, this service would be a great way to have album design pros take all of your digital images of your work and turn them into albums that you bring to bridal expos! It’s the real deal, upscale photo design for the ultimate keepsake!

Be in Destination I Do magazine!

I just love Destination I Do magazine! My articles have been featured in this gorgeous glossy, and the magazine’s editor is spectacular! They’re inviting you to submit your wedding story and photos for possible appearance in an upcoming issue, so I thought I’d share the details with you! Here’s their announcement from a post at the @antibride site—

For those of you who have kindly run out and picked up our latest issue, you probably noticed a new addition to the magazine in the form of our Real Readers section. We’ve found a way to give back to our readers while showing potential destination brides the ways in which Destination I Do can help. The section showcases real Destination I Do readers as they share their story of how our magazine has helped them.

Our next issue is rapidly approaching and we’re now looking for more real readers. So, attention all you dedicated followers out there! Are you currently planning a destination wedding or planned one in the past with the help of Destination I Do? If so, share your story with us and you might just find yourself gracing the pages of Destination I Do’s Spring/Summer 2011 issue.

Check out our Winter issue – just hit the stands!

If you’re interested in being featured in our Spring/Summer 2011 Real Readers sections send the following things to courtney@destinationidomag.com by December 17.

Submission List:

-A jpg image of yourself with an issue of the magazine (it doesn’t have to be the most recent issue.)

-An explanation of how Destination I Do has helped you.

-What you did/plan to do for your destination wedding or where you went for your honeymoon. (If the location was featured in Destination I Do.)
