Designs Girl

Kelle McCarter of Designs Girl is a graphic design artist and an amazing calligrapher.  Her love for art and  the hand written word combine for a truly unique style, which I absolutely adore.  Designs Girl is the first place I send my wedding clients for invitation design.  Her beautiful calligraphy sets the tone for the style of your wedding from the moment your guests receive their invitation, and is mimicked throughout each paper good it contains.  Check out some of my favorites…from the invitation, to the RSVP card and map, your packet of information is perfectly coordinated!

Designs Girl logo designed for AudreyMichel Photography, Denver Wedding PhotographerSince Kelle and I met 3 years ago, and I received my first beautifully addressed Greeting Card for the Holidays from the McCarters, I was hooked.  All I needed was an excuse to utilized Design Girl’s calligraphy talent.  Two opportunities came up this winter, and I took full advantage! First, my husband (ever so lovingly) informed me that my logo could be updated. Here is what Kelle came up with!



Second, my sister found out she was having a baby! So as the proud Aunt To-Be, I had a Baby Shower to throw… and that means INVITATIONS! YAY! Here is Kelle’s lovely calligraphy, coordinating with the “English High Tea” inspired party we created for my sister.

9 Pan Catering

Norm Schryver of 9 Pan Catering (otherwise known as NORM!) is one of the best in the biz.  As a wedding and event photographer, I get the pleasure of sampling a lot of food from many different caterers around Colorado.  And Norm is one of the best.  His menu is inventive, yet appeals to the masses.  His presentation is stunning, yet occasion appropriate.

I’ve had the honor of working with Norm on several occasions. Below are images from a corporate social BBQ and a corporate holiday celebration.  

Also check out Norm’s Blog where he shares menu ideas, and the adventures of a caterer. I love his short commentary!

And look! Norm is famous!
