new and improved

you may have noticed the new look on my blog, website, and facebook page!

it has been a long time coming.

here is the story…

last year when i decided to finally follow my dreams of becoming a wedding photographer things started happening really really fast and i needed to get a website and blog up asap. this meant i needed a logo and “look” super fast. i knew my business name forever ago  (electric green had popped into my mind one day when i was still dreaming about doing all this) so incorporating the colour green was a no brainer (although it did take me a while to find THE perfect shade of green!)- but now what?! after scouring font sites for my perfect font i found one i loved that suited me perfectly (cicle fina, if you were wondering!). but now i was stuck- i had a colour and a font but no logo. so, i bought a pre-made logo from an awesome graphic designer, added my green, slapped some blue in there, and voila- with no time to turn back this became electric green.

i liked the look but i definitely didn’t love it like i should. it just never felt completely right. it never felt like me. it always bothered me because this is the first thing people are seeing and i wanted it to represent me. for months i have been thinking about what i could do, mulling it over, playing with looks, considering changes.

it was only last week, it was about 2am, i had just finished working for the night when i saw it. this look literally popped into my mind and i knew what i had to do. i got back out of bed and back onto the computer. the hunt was now on for the perfect border! after days of work- i did it. this is the look i want to represent electric green and to represent me and who i am!

i hope you like it because it is here to stay! over the next month i will be working away at changing all of my documents and business stuff to reflect the new electric green.

let me know what you think of the look!
