Clients!

Big news, for a limited time I’m having an album sale!  All albums will be 25% off until March 14th!  If you haven’t purchased an album, or you’d like to purchase a duplicate album for your parents this is a great time to take advantage of the offer.

An album will stand the test of time and is a tangible reminder of your big day.  These books can be passed down through the generations and will show your story to your children and grandchildren.  Who knows where digital images and technology will be years down the road.  All I know is that I have original photographs from my childhood and of my parents and grandparents that are still around.  But my personal photos from 10 years ago are lost in cyberspace somewhere.

I encourage all my clients to create a meaningful remembrance of their day in the form of an album.  My books are available in two different designs and can be completely customized to suit your tastes.

The first book is the Coffee Table Book, which comes with a box/sleeve cover.  Both the album cover and box are covered in linen or silk book cloth.  Custom logo stamping is available for an additional fee, as well as custom fabrics and other upgrades.

My clients tend to prefer this book because you can fit so many images in the book, due to it’s construction.  Books have a minimum of 100 pages / 50 spreads and are printed on thick, archival paper.

The Silk Flushmount Album is a more traditional wedding album, with pages constructed of photographic prints mounted to rigid archival board.  The album cover includes an inset image and is covered in colorful silks and linens.  All albums include a matching box with silk ribbon.

The biggest difference between this album and the Coffee Table Book is the printing, with this book having photographic paper prints.  Because they are mounted to a rigid board so they won’t bend, the book holds less images than the Coffee Table Book but is perfect for those who prefer a more traditional look.

If you’re interested in purchasing an album please reach out to me via email at melissa@melissaschollaertphotography.com or through my website HERE. Orders must be placed by Midnight PST on March 14th, 2017.

I’m excited to get started on your family heirloom!

Ciao!

I’m completely honored to have not only my photos, but also my words published in an article I wrote for Snippet and Ink!  I am addicted to travel and have enjoyed going to so many great locations across the world.  While I mostly photograph destination weddings, I also create travel photography featuring destinations, properties and cultures.  I’ve been lucky enough to have my travel photos featured in various publications as well as write several articles discussing my travel experiences and stories.  I even have my own little travel journal filled with stories from my adventures.

This is the second article in the series I’ve written for Snippet & Ink on honeymooning in Italy.  In this article, we’re exploring the beautiful Amalfi Coast just south of Naples where I discuss my favorite towns to visit, great hotels to stay at and be pampered as well as my favorite food!  If you’re honeymooning in the Amalfi Coast or in Italy, be sure to check out this article for all of my tips and recommendations.

GALLERIES:

I have separated my galleries of work into Engagements, Weddings, Weekend Events (Rehearsal Dinners, Welcome Parties, Pool Parties), Portraits, Boudoir & Love Shoots.  Each one of those has multiple weddings or sessions that you can see and showcases a wide variety of wedding styles.

GALLERY:

Each individual gallery is laid out in collage-form.  I wanted the design to be unique, and showcase multiple images at a time.  The images change randomly and you can see a wedding or shoot from beginning to end.  There’s also an option to show a full-screen gallery of the particular gallery at the bottom if you’d like to see the images larger.

It’s quite a busy summer here at Melissa Schollaert Photography, lots of beautiful weddings, travel and shoots happening.  You may have seen below many sneak peeks at recent weddings, be sure to check out my latest work here on the blog.  In addition to normal business, I’ve also been working on a few other projects and wanted to post an update here for everyone.

I’ve been working on updating my online presence with a new blog design and website this year.  The new blog design was already rolled out earlier this year.  My new website is finished with the design process and now all that remains is to fill it with lots of new and fresh images in all the galleries.  I can’t wait for everyone to see the new site, I’m really excited about it!  It’s fresh, clean and something a little different.  Look for that coming soon, and an announcement will be made here on the Blog, and on Facebook and Instagram.

One part of updating my online presence was getting new headshots taken!  And, I couldn’t think of a better place for a destination wedding photographer to get their headshots done than in beautiful Italy!  Earlier this spring I traveled there and the lovely Leti e Viola Fotografia photographed me in one of my favorite seaside towns along the Italian Riviera.  It’s a special place, and also very near where I photographed my first ever wedding in Italy years and years ago.  I thought it would be the perfect location for this jetsetting girl, and I love how the photos turned out.  You’ll get to see many more from this session on the new website, but for now I wanted to post one of my favorites.
