Changes in the New Year January 9, 2017

There are many changes happening in 2017 for the Clark family. This past fall, we purchased 8 acres of farm land and are currently in the process of building a new home on the property. We are so excited to have our dream of building our own home come true! Our plan is to move in this spring and eventually start our own hobby farm; vegetable gardens, fruit trees, chickens, goats and maybe a pig or two:) It’s going to be a busy house with two toddlers, a dog and who knows how many more animals running around!

With the new adventures to come, we’ve decided to make some changes to our business. Although, we love photographing weddings, we’ve made the decision to cut that part out of our business. We will continue to photograph families and seniors, so we’ll still be able to do what we love – just on a smaller scale. We will not be saying goodbye to the wedding industry all together though, since I (Jessica) still plan to design custom wedding stationery for newly engaged couples.

We have been very fortunate to have worked with so many great couples over the past 6 years and are truly grateful for each wedding we took part of and the friendships that came out of them.  It will be bittersweet to say goodbye, but ultimately, we know it’s the best decision for our family. Here is a look back of some of my favorite moments…

Adventures in Greece February 26, 2014

Back in 2012 Jessica and I honeymooned in Greece. It was a dream vacation. We hopped 3 different islands during our time there starting in Santorini then making our way to Paros before spending a few days in Mykonos and ending in Athens. These are some of my favorite frames from the trip.

Hamilton Wayzgoose January 22, 2014

Here in Wisconsin we have a real gem “hidden” in Two Rivers. The Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum is dedicated to the preservation, study, production and printing of wood type.They host a yearly gathering called a Wayzgoose and Jessica and I were lucky enough to attend this past year.

To me, a completely new experience. Something about that building… the people… the sights, sounds and smells. Something old school and something I needed. We broke out in to workshops throughout the day, learning about various things such as impression, understanding rules so you can break them, documenting your process and cutting your own wood type with a pantograph. I spent the day in awe – taking it all in. After all, I knew nothing about any of this. Listening so intently to these artists with such a passion for keeping wood type and letterpress alive. Perhaps most of all, I learned what it means to be dedicated. I learned what it means to respect a craft.

In the end it’s a clunky technology, letterpress. It’s rollers and ink – spindles and gears – metal and wood – accuracy and precision – time consuming and thought provoking – creative and destructive – it’s physical and challenging… and it’s made with your hands. A thank you goes out to the good people hosting the 2013 Wayzgoose – you reinforced within me that print is beautiful and is alive and well.
