Meet a Wedding Vendor in Portland, OR: Picshare Party (5)

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Jeremy Senn, Developer and Creator of Picshare Party, based in Portland, OR! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

As a Ruby on Rails full-stack developer that likes photography and getting down at weddings, I realized that the typical wedding picture sharing process is broken and needed to be “debugged”. Typically, there are three ways brides and grooms try and gather the pictures that their guests take at their wedding:

  • Text friends and family directly asking for any pictures after the wedding.
  • Try and convince everyone attending their wedding to download and install a phone app before the wedding, then post pictures via the app during.
  • Place disposable cameras around the wedding venue and hope that people will contribute.

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Ilkley, England: Jenny Maden Photography (5)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Jenny Maden of Jenny Maden Photography, based in Ilkley, England! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

A friendly face who works to achieve very natural and relaxed photography, which ultimately ‘tells the story’ of your wedding day (including the moments that you may actually have missed yourselves).

My approach is very relaxed. At times I slink in to the background to document what is going on around me….and at other times (typically during the couples portraits) I work directly with my couples to achieve beautiful but genuine images of them together, as a married couple. I really take time to get to know my couples as its really key that they feel at ease with me and in front of the lens. I work to capture expressions and moments that are real and authentic – this is really key. As we chat and joke, I am constantly watching the light, the image composition and the angle in which I’m shooting, to ensure that the final images are polished and flattering – as well as natural.

Romantic Vintage Inspired Vow Renewal (7)

This gorgeous red and white winter vow renewal comes to us from Marianne Blackham Photography, based in Washington, DC! Here’s Marianne to tell us more:

Set in the middle of snow-covered D.C., this January vow renewal put a vintage twist on the modern architecture of the American Institute of Architects. The setting and décor were perfect for the couple that wanted a classic event with a little bit of edge. The ceremony took place outside with snow still covering the city. Bride Hayley had a classic, sparkling, white ball gown, topped off with a fancy, vintage up-do by Liz Miiller Beauty, a dainty garter from The Garter Girl, and a luxurious wedding cape to keep warm. Hayley and Luke endured the cold for a romantic ceremony, officiated by Larissa Parks and with music from the Dapper DJs, before heading inside the institute for an even more romantic reception.

Listen up, lovelies! Our friends at Minted are celebrating the start of proposal season with the launch of their brand new save the date collection by independent artists. They have released the top 60 designs from the 2018 collection and the remainder of the collection will be released later this winter.

My favorites? Well, call me cheesy, but I’m a gal that loves anything and everything that sparkles and shines. So you know I fell in love when I saw that much of Minted’s new collection worked in diamonds, confetti, glass, glitter, mirrors, windows, glistening rivers, and sunshine.

Add to that REAL foil, so you can literally see it shine!

12 Things to Include in Your Wedding Invitation (4)

Today’s thoughtful guest post comes to us from Sara Roberts of Sai Digital Photography, based in London, England! Enjoy:

Your wedding invitation renders the first peek into your wedding day, so the invitations should shine considerably. People often dismiss the aspect of the invitation before planning for their wedding theme and style because it is usually sent way before the wedding itself. A blend of thematic elements, the right names, venue and style for the actual day and the invite itself, can give an idea to guests about how much you care about the occasion, while also making sure that you care about guests. Not sure where to begin your invitation card planning? Here is everything you need to take care of for wedding invitation card:
