This fun styled shoot comes to us from Meredith Corning of Meredith Events, based in Little Rock, Arkansas! Here’s Meredith to tell us more:

I would like to take you back in time when Queen Marie Antoinette had close friendships with her ladies-in-waiting. Ladies-in-waiting were often given to queens after marriage into a royal family and served as confidants, reading correspondence to her and writing on her behalf; embroidery, painting, horse riding, music making and participation in other queenly pastimes; wardrobe care; supervision of servants; keeping her mistress abreast of activities and personages at court, and discreetly relaying messages upon command. History reveals that several of Marie Antoinette’s ladies-in-waiting acquired political influence and wealth.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I’ve had, as a wedding photographer in Mauritius since about 20 years, the extreme honor of photographing couples from all over the world here in Mauritius, in the Seychelles, Africa and Indian Ocean and each one of them proves for me time and time again what a wonderful gift this has been. I love the ability to preserve memories that couples and their families will treasure for many years to come in a very natural, modern, elegant, romantic and cinematic way.

Melton_Schulz_Melanie_Reyes_Photography_SchulzPB078_low

This delightful backyard wedding comes to us from Melanie Reyes Photography, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan! Here’s Melanie to tell us more:

When I met Paul & Brandie I immediately loved what they were about. See, they had planned a BIG quintessential Ann Arbor wedding – big bridal party, Ann Arbor venue, 200+ people, – the whole shebang. When they added up all the costs for such a wonderful affair they took a hard look at the numbers and said, “Do we want a big wedding or should we instead use that money and buy a place to call HOME?” So that’s what they did.

Chic Blush Wedding in Southern California by Bluebell Florals (4)

Today’s lovely real wedding comes to us from Laura Kunoth of Bluebell Florals, based in Carlsbad, CA! Here’s Laura to tell us more:

A simple and chic, blush pink wedding for Shannon and Aaron in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA. The ceremony took place on the grassy hill over-looking the ocean at Santa Barbara City College. The bride wanted to keep her decor simple so as not to take away from the stunning view, so we created a lightly scattered rose petal aisle with a few clusters of blush dahlias on every other chair going up the aisle. It added just a touch of color to the ceremony without taking away from the wonderful setting.

This gorgeous styled shoot comes to us from wedding planner Elise Seagren, owner of Revel + Bloom, based in Denver, Colorado! Here’s Elise to tell us more:

There is something whimsical and romantic about the idea of a secret garden- something wild, and lush, and overgrown, and magical. We wanted to contrast that feeling in an industrial setting. We wanted our shoot to feel like you just stumbled across this forgotten garden in an urban area.

Today’s guest post comes to us from Liza Head of Juniper Spring Photography, based in the San Francisco Bay Area! Enjoy:

If you haven’t thought about it already, at some point in planning your wedding photography timing, you’ll ask yourself: do you *need* getting ready photos? If you do how long do you need? “Getting Ready” is not about getting unflattering photos of you with your hair in curlers – far from it! It’s a great time to get amazing candid photos of emotional moments, of you spending time with your nearest and dearest friends or family, all of your special details and even some portraits. To figure out whether you need to have a photographer around for this time during your wedding day, ask yourself some questions:

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Bucharest, Romania: theSquare (4)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Daniel of theSquare, based in Bucharest, Romania! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

I’m close to 40 and it shows: a bit too fat, less hair, eyeglasses. My company is also my family, I am blessed with two wonders of 8 and 2 who struggle all day to find out who can spread the legos more evenly on the entire floor. My photography brand is theSquare. Our family has four members, like the corners of a square :) Seriously now, I think that one needs proper support from the family in order to cope with this business.
