Breaking news for GP Photo!

Hey everybody!

I have some exciting news to share with you. Effective March 14th, 2008, I will be working full-time for Gerald Pope Photography! Many of you know that Gerald and I both work "day jobs" outside the home--Gerald as the photographer for the Pro Sports Club and the Pro Pulse magazine in Bellevue, and me as the Program Manager for Fuller Seminary's extension site in Seattle--but our business has been growing so incredibly fast, that it is time for me to "come home!" We are so excited about this for many reasons, but the primary one is that it will allow us to serve our clients and other photographers even better, and give us more opportunity to connect with all of you in"real time."

Over the next few months, I will be intentionally connecting with local wedding vendors (planners, florists, venues, etc.) to find some of the best people in the industry. I am committed to providing all of our clients with an exceptional wedding photography experience with Gerald and I from beginning to end, but I also want to give them/you the resources they need to help make the wedding planning and the wedding day as smooth and enjoyable as possible. If you have any vendors that you would like to recommend, please shoot me an email at airika@geraldpope.com or post a comment here and I will check them out!

We greatly appreciate all of you--our clients and our photographer colleagues--you have played a huge role in helping our business grow so quickly, and we look forward to growing in our relationships with all of you in the future.

Have a wonderful week,

Airika

Oh no! The photography in the Pro Pulse has gotten really good over the years. Say you will still be working for them part time!?

Hi "Anonymous!" Actually, Airika is the one that is leaving her position at Fuller Seminary. I am keeping my job with the PRO Sports Club and will still be shooting for the PRO Pulse. Thanks so much for the compliment! :) Gerald
