The end of an era... 2504 Creative - The last party (and sale)

Even as I am sitting here writing this I can hardly believe it. Just under 3 years ago I was fortunate to start sharing an office with two great friends and businesses that I respect & admire greatly. The last three years have been an amazing season with friends, clients that have become friends, community, and business. Now it is time for a new season. The three of us are all headed in different directions with business and life. I couldn't be more excited for everyone (and myself). Life will never be the same because of the last 3 years and for that I am eternally grateful.

Insert party (and sale).

We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the last 3 years we have had together other than to throw a PARTY.

So here is where you come in... Next Friday, April 6th (yes Good Friday) we will be having our last party as 2504 Creative. A way to say thanks for everything that everyone has done for us over the last 3 years, have some coffee, share some laughs, and celebrate the community that we have had here. It will be from 6-8p and we will be having coffee/snacks. I hope that you can join us. I am including the invite below...

Also we are selling a bit of the items that we have acquired over the last few years (desks, chairs, sofas, bookshelves, computers, espresso machines, grinders, office decor, wedding decor, office supplies) and we created a fun little video showing some of the things that we will be selling. I am including a list of what I am selling below and I hope that you enjoy the video...

Big thanks to my good friend Jamie Orillion for shooting the video for us!

Blessings. Jason

Moving Offices!!!

I just wanted to put up a quick post as we are right in the middle of moving into our new office. I am super excited about the new place and can't wait to share some pictures (the before and after will blow you away)! For the next couple (and last couple) of days we are pretty much living out of boxes, so I may be slightly behind on email from the last week. Thanks again for all of your patience and support in allowing me to take this step forward!

Suzanne Perron Gowns & Brides.com competition!

I have been shooting a bit for my good friend and gown designer Suzanne Perron, finishing up a project that will turn into a book published by LSU press. Needless to say, it has been amazing to work on and I was so honored that she chose me to work with her. A couple of weeks ago she called me ecstatic that one of her gowns had made it to the finals for a brides.com competition. This past week we had the chance to photograph the gown again and I just wanted to post a link to the competition. I am really excited for her and also that we got some fantastic images of the beautiful gown! If you have time please vote at the link below (hers is dress #11).

Also I will include some of my favorite images below from our last shoot!

I wanted to put a quick post to say congrats to Hannah and also if you are looking for an venue for your wedding or reception City Club is an excellent choice. Here are a couple shots of her that we shot this week. Blessings. Jason

Introducing Bethany!

I am sad to say, but Ben will be leaving at the end of the month to goto Hallmark Institute of Photography :( I have started to train my new Assistant/Second shooter and I figured that I would give her a formal introduction on the blog. She will be with me on future shoots and is picking up everything extremely quickly. Here are a couple we shot today of each other while doing a little training with Bethany. Blessings. Jason

Don't Box Us In Interview!

I was recently asked by some good friends of mine over at "Don't Box Us In" (aka DBUI) to do an interview on their site and I was absolutely flattered. DBUI is an awesome source for photographers to think "outside of the box" and get some inspiration. The interview went live on their site today and I am super excited about having the opportunity. You can view the entire interview here. Please check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks again to Sofie, Mark, Jason & everyone else at DBUI again for inviting me to interview. Blessings.

Parish to Parish is Live!

So first off let me say that I am really excited about this post... You might seen a couple "fine art" images that I posted a while back from a trip that Ben & I took just photographing for fun. Well... this has turned into a full blown project called "Parish to Parish." The whole idea behind the project is to artistically portray every parish in the state of Louisiana. Below is a screen shot of the website which you can visit at http://www.parishtoparish.com Prints are available for sale through the site and our first showing will actually begin tomorrow (Sunday, March 8th) at CC's coffeehouse on Kaliste Saloom Rd.

Please check by the site often for our latest work and let us know what you think.

Blessings. Jason

Its the little things in life...

Last week seemed to fly by quicker than most, but I did want to post a couple photos of two small things that brought a little excitement to my week. The first is a new little personalized product that I just got which is a Jason Cohen Photography iPod shuffle... It is a regular 1GB iPod shuffle with my logo on the front and my website on the back. I had been wanting something really personalized a while back and I was so excited to get it (see pics below and let me know what you think)!

American Photo!!

So I received a copy of American Photo yesterday and it just happened to have one of my images in it under the Images of the Year Competition. I actually didn't know that I was going to be one of the finalist in the magazine and I was extremely surprised when I got it in yesterday. If you get a chance pick up a copy of the magazine at your local bookstore! Blessings.

Anna & Daniel are Engaged!!

My good friend Daniel asked me to photograph his proposal to his girlfriend (now future wife) today and here are just a couple photos from that before I run off to a wedding.

Bridal Show.

I was a vendor at a bridal show in Lafayette this weekend and just thought I would post a couple photos from my booth. The show was lots of fun and it was great to meet so many brides-to-be. The flowers were provided by Flowers Etc. , they looked so good that I had a couple people ask if I was a florist. Here are the pics. Blessings. Jason
