How ymalayphotography started their logo design journey

Company name

Ymalay Photography

Overview

I am a 28 year old male new startup wedding and portrait photographer. I prefer a more candid, journalistic style to my portraits, compared to the more traditional in studio approach. I'm trying to convey a sense of modern, chic, yet simplistic no frills approach. I do not like overly frilly, especially since I am a male. I like slightly more feminine (60-70%) approach to my logo as they are really the clients I am selling to a lot. Simple, yet elegant is my style. I don't just take photos, I capture moments.

I primarily shoot weddings and engagements, but am definitely expanding fast, and taking newborn photos, maternity, and family portraits regularly now.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

My main audience is 20's to 30's couples looking to get married, and just starting families. More upscale. Typically earning in the 40,000+ range. I do not want to convey a sense of cheapness, but one of simple modern elegance. I like a more refined customer base, and typically cater to professionals, doctors, lawyers, dentists, nurses, etc.

Think upscale, not trashy or cheap.

Requirements

My name must obviously be in the logo, and it would be nice if it was incorporated directly into the logo, but not a necessity. A simple graphic would be good, but nothing with too many frills or too "feminine", but can take 60-70% feminine. . Mild loops and curves are ok. And a more cursive loopy font is acceptable. Just not something too hard to read.
It can have some loops to it, but nothing "too loopy." Simple is better.

The logo must emboss well, so I can foil stamp bags, cases, etc. If it does not emboss well, I will not choose it.

I would really like to emphasize the name of my company, but would be open to see what other ideas people have.

I do not want a camera anywhere on my logo.

No shutters on my logo.

No Large Icons.

I mainly would like my name with maybe a small elegant logo, possibly incorporated into the logo, and easily embossable. A heart in the logo would be acceptable.

Here is the site where I will be using to print some embossed CD sleeves to give you an idea what will work. If I can easily convert the graphic to plain B&W after the graphic is sent to me, or even if the winner sends me a b&W along with a gradient version, this is not a problem.

Here is the site and example of the CD sleeve.
