Everything about this says natural beauty, carefree and southern. Running through the pasture barefoot, the warm sun on the bride’s bare shoulders it’s hard not to daydream about doing the same.

Evonne & Darren Photography is an expression of our personal vision.  We photograph weddings and portraits with a contemporary fine art approach, using traditional film with modern developing and digital scanning technology to achieve the aesthetic you see here.   We live in Northern California, which inspires us with its scenic vistas from the rugged coastline to rustic Napa Sonoma wine country, the perfect sunlit outdoor environment to be film photographers.  We love the look of analog film because it can produce gorgeous pastel-like colors and grain, allowing us to create timeless photos that are elegant, soft, organic and romantic.  As a real life husband and wife wedding photography duo, we not only document the beauty and special moments of your wedding day, but also provide directions in a way that encourages our couples and guests to interact authentically and candidly.

Today’s wedding planner interview is with Lauren of LDC & Co., based in Keene, New Hampshire! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I’m Lauren Dragon-Cook. I have a wedding addiction and I’m not afraid to admit it! I’m a lover of controlled chaos with a fierce passion for life (I am a Leo after all). When I’m not organizing wedding day itineraries or chatting with clients, you can find me and my husband, Ian, chasing our two sons, Liam (5) and Asher (2). I’ve been living and breathing weddings ever since I was like 3 when I got my first Polly Pocket that just so happened to be the wedding edition. In the real world, I have over 5 years of wedding industry experience and still have that Polly Pocket.

Madison and Josh met back in 2014 on the dating website “Plenty of Fish”. They had their first date at the Western Fair Home Show, followed by a lovely dinner.

This stylish, fun-filled Mediterranean wedding comes to us from wedding photographer Sotiris Tsakanikas! Here’s the groom to tell us more:

If I was ever told that I would fall in love with my future bride at first sight, I would probably laugh hard because I always considered this scenario is only plausible in movies. It’s a lovely night in Milan, but despite it’s loveliness you don’t wish to remove yourself from the couch.
