Real Engagement: Maria and Jason’s Engagement Shoot by Pottinger Photography

Real Engagement: Maria and Jason's Engagement Shoot by Pottinger Photography (6)

Today’s real engagement comes to us from Brenda Pottinger of Pottinger Photography, based in Cincinnati, OH! Here’s what she has to say about this shoot and the happy couple:

When Maria and Jason suggested a rowboat for their engagement session I was very excited. And then reality kicked in – hmm how do you pose a couple on a rowboat? How do you not fall in while taking photos? The end result – a very humorous engagement session. I am sure the fisherman thought we were crazy! I used a peddle boat (you know the ones you steer with your feet and move forward like a bike) and the couple had fun working their boat together.

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer: Luca, Wedding photographer in Venice

Today’s photographer interview is with Luca Fazzolari, based in Venice, Italy! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

When shaping my career as photographer I looked for areas where my experience could add value, the solution came from the fusion of two elements: love for Venice and languages / cultural sensitivity, the latter was developed in the years I spent abroad for professional reasons and the former growing up here (I arrived at the age of 15). This of course on top of the technical foundation acquired at the Italian institute of photography in Milan.

Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: Invitation Consultants

Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: Invitation Consultants

Today’s stationer interview is with Allison, the founder of Invitation Consultants based in Tampa, FL! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I started Invitation Consultants 15 years ago on a whim. I was thinking of starting a side business, and paper seemed like something fun! When I was laid off from my marketing position, it soon turned into the full-time gig. I wish my story was something more exciting, but really the everyday is the most exciting part, not how I got here.

Real Engagement: Rebecca and Tyler’s Engagement Shoot by Kristen Nicole Photography

G46A1411

 

Today’s real engagement comes to us from Kristen of Kristen Nicole Photography, based in Toledo, OH! Here’s what she has to say about the shoot:

We travelled from Toledo to spend the afternoon with Rebecca and Tyler photographing their engagement session at the Rockefeller park Greenhouse and Cleveland Cultural Gardens. Rebecca and Tyler are the sort of people that upon first meeting, made us feel like we had known them for years. They were one of the sweetest, most laid-back couples we’ve had the privilege to work with, and despite Tyler asking us repeatedly if he looked awkward (since he admitted having his photo taken felt awkward), we assured him that the photos looked great!
