I ama 35 yr old male photographer with over 15 years of wedding and portrait experience. I have worked for other studios but am going out on my own and need a new ID that will appeal to upscale females (my target audience - brides, moms, etc.) see some samples at geoffchesman.com (this is a temporary site until new id is designed.) While I currently provide only still photography, my work is gravitating towards including video and stills into a multimedia product. Hence visuals instead of just photography.

Brides to-be and moms 24-45 are my primary audience. With wedding planners and other event vendors a secondary audience
I want something unique, creative and edgy but still simple, elegant and graphically appealing. My work is emotional in nature and the logo should be something that tries to convey this. The branding will be carried through on everything from business cards, to note cards, shopping bags, tags and more. Logo must be able to be applied to photos that appear online as well. I want this to be instantly recognizable - even from far away, and somehow emotionally connect with the viewer.
