I found this while trolling my computer today. Jesse put a sign around our fabulous chubby kitty, Tanner: Free Cat - Smells Bad. It's true.

We'll have wedding funness to post soon, but thought this might make some other cat lady out there smile :)

Wedding Tip: Bring a Pretty Hanger

I know I've been bad about posting wedding tips, but I'm going to try and be better!

Here's one that is simple, and makes a nice difference...

Buy a pretty hanger for your dress on the morning of. Most places stick it on a plastic one, and it's never attractive. So find something fun- anything from classic white to hot pink and use that instead. It makes a noticeable difference!

I had to hide the hanger in this one, you can see that it's sort of pulling down the curtain, but it's ok!



We'll be entering this, like we did last year: http://cirasphotography.blogspot.com/2008/08/we-placed-in-photo-contest.html

Photographik - Boston wedding photographers

We don't do a lot of advertising- most of our clients find us through word of mouth, which is pretty awesome. But after we saw photographik.org, we knew it was something different. First, all the photographers have to be reviewed and accepted. Then we loved that it was this little community- you don't just post your stuff and see who finds you- you can change your pictures as much as you like, and interact with other photographers in the directory. Then, we loved it's goals- it wants to be THE place for finding a wedding and portrait photographer. A lot of sites say that, but it's actually doing something- it's on the first page of google if you search Boston wedding photographer.

Anyway, we're in and psyched! Check out our profile page in the Boston section of http://www.photographik.org

Engagement Photos - Boston Kim * Mike

We like our e sessions to be chill - we sort of just stalk couples, making jokes and subtly posing them. Kim and Mike totally rocked it! It's never easy to start - I mean, who is used to being followed by the Ciras Paparazzi?? - but you can see a gradual progression of "comfortable-ness" really clearly here. Kim and Mike trusted us the whole time to do our thing, laughing when we had them sit in front of a large gray wall but trusting that we'd make it look cooler than they were imagining. I had a lot of fun- even if we sort of froze by the water in the winter!

Look how badass!
