How hudsonrivercreative started their logo design journey

Summary

Hudson River Creative is a photographic and design studio.

We shoot weddings, though not exclusively. We are also a creative service agency doing design work and web design. We are located in the Hudson Valley in New York.

Company name

Hudson River Creative

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

PLEASE NO MORE "H"
I want to see other designs not using the H.  I have a couple of outstanding H designs already. 
You can try HRC.
You can try just a river. 
You could try river as a ribbon....?
But the H has been done successfully here.  So please try and create something that STANDS OUT FROM THE REST!
You can do it ---> thank you :)

PLEASE NO MORE H DESIGNS UNLESS IT IS REALLY SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Really want to see unique designs at this point as it seems everyone is doing take-offs of what I already see.

We want a unique logo designed that will be used as a watermark on photographic images, and for our business cards. 

The image will also be part of a design business.

It is important that the logo work as a stand alone graphic element as well as a logo incorporating the full name of our company.  I am also open to very creative use of font only with minor graphical element within the font.

The logo must be graphic, modern, simple and eye catching.

Our tagline again is:  Love is the River of Life in the World. 

But please don't overly emphasize LOVE.  I want this logo to be able to be used for design and photography outside of weddings.

So the obvious thing would be to incorporate River as a graphic element and perhaps love or world... but please!  Nothing hokey or too corny!  Thing classy but not overly elegant or frou frou.

You can view my website showing my initial logo design at http://www.hudsonriverphotographer.com.... I don't love this... Did it myself, but I do sort of like the H and the swash/river thing.

Right now most of the 3 star logos feel too corporate.... the H seemingtoo imposing. Remember the bulk of my business is wedding photographyand design. So while these are all very good, they seem like logos foran architect, or a tech firm.... not a creative studio.

Please look at my website to generate ideas:  http://www.hudsonriverphotographer.com or my blog at http://www.hudsonriverphotographer.com/wordpress.
