    I like the 3rd one best...but I'm not sure about the red line on the right side.

    Third one is good for a general card, but I would change the font a bit. A sans serif font is good for the classical look, but a bit of italicization might be helpful. You'll need to experiment.
    As for the mid. card. Keep it and use it for referrals, and other appointments.

    The third card is easy to read, simple and straightforward. Out of the group, that is the most effective.

    I find that when developing my marketing materials, it is best to build relationships with designers. Do you have any friends who are designers or just have a good artisitic eye? Ask for help from those people and you'll get much better results while being able to focus more on what you do: photography!

    I like #3 too. The color is what got me. You might consider putting your own face on your business card too.

    Zach, although I think your picture of the bug is cool, I don't think that it's best used on your business card. Especially because it looks like you are trying to advertise for parties and weddings. People who want that sort of thing are probably going to be a little bit turned off by a big ol' bug picture on your card. Do you have any good examples of weddings that you could use instead? Like maybe a close up of the rings or flowers that you could set at a lower opacity and put your printed info on top?
