Our favorite album company (for the quality and beauty of their finished albums), Finao, is offering us some lovely album liners for their wedding and portrait photography albums. We took advantage for one of our couples and they absolutely loved it! We inserted a wood liner on the beginning and the end of the album, which suited their sail tented, outdoor, home wedding perfectly.
The wood album liner and saffron yellow leather cover certainly are befitting of their beautiful rustic wedding!
Here is a wood cover that will be next up on the sample album list (Photo courtesy of Finao)
Brrrr! On a cold, winter day Anna, Adam and I met for their engagement session in the lovely center city Philadelphia neighborhood in which they live, Filter Square, chatted, warmed up over coffee and hot chocolate at the snug Gavin’s Café, played with the snow a little, and took their sweet rescue pup Kima for a chilly stroll. I believe my car thermometer told me it was 18 degrees outside! This is where Adam & Anna make their most intimate memories, in their daily routine. And it’s great. Now one might think, WHY would anyone want to shoot an engagement session in these conditions and to this I say, “Why not?” I am such a winter person, I would be happy shooting in the cold all the time! I also love the challenge of working in different and not ideal weather conditions. Late afternoon sun beaming off an earlier snowfall is gorgeous and I loved taking advantage of it to photograph this romantic, easy-going, smart & friendly couple. I am looking forward to photographing their wedding this fall at the beautiful Appleford Estate in the Philadelphia suburbs.
This is where Adam proposed to Anna…
I love this look Adam is giving to Anna. It’s truly his personality!
This is the bar that Anna & Adam first met, called Doobie’s. You can bring your dog. It’s a pretty awesome place. Mental note…
Laura & Kevin’s beautiful wedding ceremony at the classic Old Saint Joe’s Church, wedding portraits on the city streets of Philadelphia, and the lively party at the chic & lovely venue, Vie. Makeup by Julie Wolcov Makeup Artist, Beautiful Blooms created the exquisite flowers, and transportation was arranged by Cescaphe Event Group. A truly wonderful, joyful day, and Laura & Kevin were so easy and fun to be around, as can be witnessed by just looking at their large crew of loyal and loving friends & family.
