Other Photos from this Summer and Fall

Although my primary focus is on wedding photography, I photograph a lot of other things as well. This year took me all over to photograph things like a red carpet event for my friend, MJ Dougherty’s, new book, Life Lessons of a Total Failure, in Los Angeles. It also took me to Mexico to photograph a resort. I did a lot of family photos this year as well as photographed several events in Breckenridge like the Breckenridge Film Festival, and the Moth Radio Hour, a nationally syndicated story telling program. There were also the usual mountain bike races and white water trips to photograph as well.

Doctors to the World Fundraiser a success

 

 

A few months ago I asked you to leave me some reviews online as well as help me increase the number of followers on social media. As a way of saying thank you, I offered to make a donation to the charity, Doctors to the World, that provides medical care in places like Nepal and Sudan. I can’t thank you enough for how much you all came through for me. First, here are the numbers.

Network Starting Final Change Dollars raised
Facebook Fans 1455 1512 57 $14.25
Instagram Followers 1700 3044 1344 $336.00
theKnot.com Reviews 7 9 2 $40.00
Weddingwire Reviews 11 14 3 $60.00

That brings us to a grand total of $450.25. I decided to round up to an even $500 and present the check to Doc PJ of Doctors to the world yesterday. He reminded me that he pays for his own travel expenses, so every dollar donated goes directly to the people that need it. Also given the low costs associated with care in the regions he works, he told me that through your help we have helped to provide healthcare to literally hundreds of people.

Thank you all again,
Timothy Faust

Anatomy of an Image #14

The Breckenridge Ski Wedding

 

 

When people think about wedding photography, they don’t usually think about skiing action shots. That is what made this wedding so fun. I was able to pull from my background as an adventure travel photographer, and from my love of skiing, to create several images like this one. Continue reading »

Review Timothy Faust Photography and Support Charity

 
 

 As you probably know, nothing is as powerful as word of mouth for the success of any business. Today the primary means of that is through social media and leaving an online review, but a challenge photographers like myself face is getting people to take the time to leave a review for is. Most reputable review sites do not allow businesses to compensate clients for leaving a review, but after talking with my doctor, Louis Perrinjaquet, we came up with an idea to help make it worth you while.

 

If you are a past client for weddings or portraits, even if all you did was order a few prints or download some digital images from a family member’s wedding, and take a few minutes to leave me a review, it will be greatly appreciated. Since I can’t compensate people for reviewing me, what I will do instead is to make a donation to, Doctors to the World, the charity group that my doctor works with providing medical services in developing countries.

 
For every review on Weddingwire or theKnot Timothy Faust Photography receives between the beginning of the year and July 1st, 2016, I will donate $20 to Doctors to the World. If you don’t have the time to write a full review, like my Facebook page or Instagram, and for each new follower I get, I will donate 25 cents, so tell your friends.

 

So there is complete transparency, here is where the numbers are right now:

Facebook: 1,455 fans
Instagram: 1,700 followers
Weddingwire: 11 reviews
theKnot: 7 reviews

Images from this Summer

 

While the majority of what we do here at Timothy Faust Photography revolves around weddings, those are not the only things we photograph. This summer we spent a fair amount of time each week photographing family portraits in Breckenridge, like we do every year, but this year we spent more time photographing events like the USA Pro Cycling Challenge road bike race, the Breck Epic mountain bike race, as well as some local bike events around town. Enjoy some of our non wedding images from this summer.

Now showing fine art photography in Arts Alive Gallery

I have exciting news. My landscape photography is now hanging in Arts Alive Gallery at 500 S. Main in downtown Breckenridge Colorado. Before I started photographing weddings I focused on landscape and adventure travel photography around the world.

Massive Earthquake in Nepal

As many of you know, Nepal holds a special place in my heart after my travels there in 2009. Earlier today, a massive 7.8 earthquake struck in Kathmandu causing nearly a thousand deaths in Nepal and three other neighboring countries. Thousands remain missing in the rubble of Nepal’s older and often poorly constructed buildings, and in some areas more than half of all the homes have been destroyed. Their immediate needs include clean water and medical care, but this will be along term rebuilding project.

 

Donate and Get a Free Portrait Session

I want to encourage people to help out in any way they can. I think the best way to help is to encourage people to donate to the charity of their own choosing providing relief efforts. If you donate to any charity by May 1, 2015 helping in the earthquake relief efforts and show me a receipt, I will provide you with free or discounted services based on the following:

  • $50 or more and receive a free 1 hour portrait session ($249 value)
  • $200 or more and receive a free family portrait package ($599 value)
  • $500 or more and receive $1,000 off of any of my wedding photography packages

 

The UK Red Cross is currently accepting donations.
