Welcome back to another installment of Real Weddings Magazine’s Partner Profiles!
This week, we have feature David and Christie Posey from Lexigraphics Photography. Not only is this couple extremely talented, they’re also two of the most respectful and kind people I know. Now, you can get to know them! Take it away guys!
Specialty? Wedding Photography
When did you establish your business? 2000
What sets you apart from your competition? We are a husband and wife team, married 40 years (but we’re not that old!). So it’s not just one photographer and an assistant (“second shooter”) but a real synergy of soul-mates who have worked together on literally hundreds of weddings. Our experience, not only in photography, but in love and marriage give us an edge, an eye for what matters and a feel for romance. We take an unobtrusive approach. We do not become part of the wedding by injecting ourselves into every scene.
Where do you find inspiration? You might expect us to say “other photographers,” and that’s true to some extent. But real inspiration comes from our couples when they describe their hopes and dreams for their wedding. We don’t use a “cookie-cutter” approach; we aim to fashion our wedding coverage to fit the unique needs of each couple.
When you opened shop, what was your promise to your customers? To tell the story of their wedding in great images, and do it unobtrusively but completely.
Do you have any hidden talents? Christie is a seamstress, a designer, a great cook and has a host of other talents. She has repaired torn wedding dresses, calmed the nerves of brides, entertained children, pinned boutonnieres on groomsmen, cleaned stains from clothes, fixed fallen cakes. She’s really amazing.
Facebook, Myspace, LinkedIn or Twitter? Facebook.
Do you regularly blog? If so, what’s your blog site? www.davidandchristie.com
Where is your favorite place to travel? To Connecticut, to see our four grandkids.
What’s your favorite local restaurant? Centro in midtown Sacramento.
What’s your favorite local charity?Susan G. Komen for the Cure
If you weren’t in the wedding industry, what would you be doing? Graphic design, teaching.
What three things are you most grateful for in life? Grandkids, grandkids, grandkids!
If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element would be most important to you? The people — the wedding party and family.
What is the best advice you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? As important as the wedding day is, remember that the real significance of the day is that you are getting married. Try to relax in the knowledge that no matter what happens during the wedding, at the end of the day, you’ll be husband and wife. That’s what really matters. Choose vendors that make you the point, not themselves. Photographers, videographers, DJs and everyone else involved should be focused on one thing: making your day the best day of your life.
Anything else you’d like to share with Real Weddings Magazine’s brides? It’s about you, not us.
