As we continue to grow, we are still searching to find our "style". Not so much the style of shooting but our brand. We've thought about this painstakingly throughout the last 2 and a half years. Over the past few months, we believe we have tapped into our creative juices and narrowed down what we want to be known for and how we want to share our experience with the world. While that sounds good and dandy, we had many a sleepless nights arguing, agreeing and arguing again over it - remember we are married too. LOL.
At one point, we thought long and hard about changing our name completely. Most photographer,s at some point in their career, end up with their name in their photography business, i.e. John Doe Photography or John and Kate Photography. Let's just say you would reconsider if your names were Philshaunda and Diaab. We LOVE the names our parents gave us but that is admittedly a tough sale, marketing-wise. Our names are hard to pronounce, they are hard to spell (you get what we are saying right?). So we decided to stick with our name, AS22 Photography. The "AS" representing our last name of course, Abdus-Salaam. The "22" representing the 22 years from the day we met back in fourth grade to the day we exchanged numbers, Yahoo! IDs, etc. (Grab your Kleenex folks). We made a vow to make up for the last 22 years spending a next couple of forevers together. We will talk more about us on a more personal level later.
What better way to start than with the AS22 Photography logo?!?! So here it is. Get to know it. Share it. Use it in a hashtag - #AS22Photography or simply #AS22.
While we both pulled out our computers and attempted to design a new logo on our own, we decided to enlist a professional in the matter. Shout out to Erricca at J'Marie Design Studios. We communicated all the time about what we wanted our brand to be and she took it well, never once complained and responded to our requests quickly! We couldn't have a better person to bring our vision to life.
So here we are! AS22 Photography. We are your Greensboro Wedding photographer. We are your Greensboro senior photographer. Not in Greensboro? That's okay too! We travel...with our cameras in hand, lots of laughs and a genuine love for what we do.
