Hello... We are Anne and Rich Lavigne, a Husband and wife wedding and portrait photography team. Together, we strive to provide fun and unique wedding photography to our couples. We love to find out who they are, what makes them tick and then incorporate that into our style (http://www.richlphotography.com). We also run a candid children's portrait photography business under my wife's name (http://www.anneyoungphoto.com). We started our wedding business in 2008 and at the time, we thought it made sense to use just my name since I was the contact point for our wedding jobs and the children's portrait business would stay under my wife's name. Two and half years have gone by now and we've decided that we want to unify our brands under one website and domain (http://www.anneandrich.com) That's where you come in. We are looking for THAT logo and I hope you guys can help.We love our current logo (RICH LAVIGNE PHOTOGRAPHY) and everything it says about our brand. Its clean, simple and modern. We are looking for a logo for our wedding business, not something that combines the wedding and children portrait aspect. It speaks to our clients that are young, hip and fashion conscious. Rich wears jeans and custom, limited edition Nike's and Anne always knows the latest bags and shoes before the trends hit.
Our target audience is primarily women. The logo needs to appeal to women under the age of 35, but not be overtly feminine. I want the men to be able to forward it to their friends and be proud of the cool photographers they hired for their wedding. If you scroll back through our past shoots, particularly our engagement sessions, you'll see that the guys in our couples are into it. They've clearly been a part of the wedding photography decisions. It should be something that looks fresh, cool, and hip. It should have a hidden flare for fashion.
The logo should use the words "Anne" "Rich" and "Photography". We are also thinking of something that has "Anne + Rich" as the top line and "Lavigne Photography" as a bottom line. We would also like it to incorporate some sort of "A" and "R" watermark. We tend to like something that has hard edges as opposed to curves, but throw your best ideas at the board. Please visit the website (the wedding website) and check out our current logo. It doesn't have to match that, but it should have a similar vibe. In terms of color, it should incorporate the current colors.
I don't want to use pictures, or anything that looks like a camera or aperture. I don't want it to say "wedding"
I'll need the logo in a vector format for scaling and also a large raster file, maybe 8.5x11 canvas at 300 dpi in psd format.
Good Luck and Thanks.
