Where are you located?: Youngstown, OH

type of photography do you shoot?:
Mainly wedding photography with occasional family sessions and a side of
seniors and newborns.

When did you first join the Kraft & Jute family?: About 2 years
ago while looking for something different than everyone else was using.

do your clients say when they see your Kraft & Jute Packaging?
Anyone ever pass out? :):
My clients absolutely love my packaging! I
tend to work with the ‘artsy’ and creative crowd so they really
appreciate the look and feel of Kraft & Jute products when I deliver
their photos.

Name your favorite Kraft & Jute Packaging product that you
can’t live without.:
Hmmm.. how about product(s)? The presentation box
is my number one favorite followed closely by the corrugated cd sleeve. I
really love the printed discs as well, nice quality and sharp display
of the logo.

Best advice that you’ve been given in your photography career?:
Never let your camera leave your hand so you are always ready for a
candid moment and never compare yourself to anyone else out there.

What is your most used Photoshop (or Lightroom) tool, plug-in, or action set etc.?: Hands down curves and masks.

If you and your camera were invisible for one day, what would you
Hopefully Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster. They seem to be
camera shy so maybe if I was invisible… 😉

We want the good
stuff here, so don’t hold back. Tell us a story of something funny,
embarrassing or suspenseful that happened during a shoot.:
The most
embarrassing thing that has ever happened on a shoot happened when I was
photographing a wedding. The bride and groom were exiting the church,
they had just released some doves and were walking towards the limousine.
I was walking backwards clicking away on my camera and tripped over a
guest and went spilling onto the concrete…. in a dress. All I could
think about was protecting my camera so I did some somersaults with the
grace of an elephant James Bond style and fell hard on my right knee and
scraped my whole right leg in the process. I have since decided my
wedding wear will be pants and a simply adorable blouse 🙂

Ever split your pants or get injured all in efforts to capture that
special shot?:
See above. I have also tripped and stumbled numerous
times since I use prime lenses and tend not to watch where I am walking
when zooming in.

If you were in a public area and everyone was skipping instead of
walking, would you join the fun?:
After taking a few photos absolutely !

What is your current state of mind after completing this survey?: I am thinking about skipping 🙂

  1. Love these packaging posts! One small suggestion: it’d be helpful if you listed the products the photographers use (the ones displayed in the photos). Just a small list at the bottom if possible. 🙂


    1. Great idea Melissa! Thanks for sharing. 🙂 We will be sure to do that from now on in each featured photographer post. Stay tuned and thanks again! 🙂
