I’m going to split my favorites up in two little groups, because believe it or not, some of my favorites are from engagement shoots or day after shoots. I know everyone is supposed to look and be their best at their wedding, but there’s something so fun and relaxed about these images. I just love them.
Now a note about my favorite wedding images…. It’s really hard to pick out just a few! Carina and I have been blessed with some of the coolest, most fun people to work with. I have favorites from every wedding. Some of these I like because they are clear, bright, and colorful. Others I love because they are so telling of the people in them, some are funny, some are quiet and sweet. Some I just like because the are so different from things I usually shoot. Anyways here they are, in all their assorted glory….
Hello! Carina from Love Me Do Photography here. During this slow time for weddings, I have been enjoying looking back on some of the really great weddings we were able to photograph this past year. So to give you something to look at, I’ve picked out my favorite shots of 2010. Please note: these are only photos taken by me, and are not to be mistaken for the “best of Love Me Do” but rather “Carina’s favs of 2010.” Amanda and Nadine also have their favorite shots to add later down the line. So until then, enjoy my picks!
Also note: I seriously had to narrow these down by a lot. There were a bunch of other great shots from other weddings throughout the year, but of couse, couldn’t put them all up! So if you’re wedding was shot by me and not pictured, that doesn’t mean I didn’t love the photos. I get excited for every wedding that we shoot and love looking through the images afterwards. Most of the following shots I choose because of lighting, color scheme (I like a lot of neutrals and monotone images), natural elements (I seriously love trees in pictures), and the unique quality of some of the shots as opposed to many of usual weddings we shoot (ie: palm trees, pink dresses, unique backgrounds). One more thing about my choices: I like portraits of people where they’re not necessarily smiling, when they are standing still, and symmetry in composition. Again these are just my favs.. most people will have a different opinion than mine, and that’s ok!
Thanks to everyone who had us photograph their weddings last year! It was the best year we’ve had so far!
This past sunday was the Love Sick Expo, in which we were a part of. As it was the expo’s first year in existence, it was a huge success! 31 companies participated, with over 70 vendor representatives, and more than 350 attendees from 10 different states attended. The Love Sick expo was able to raise almost $800 for charity also. We had a great time being there, meeting people and vendors and taking pictures (of course!). A couple of the highlights were: Amanda’s french macaroons being a hit, meeting a girl from Off Beat Bride in real life, and having 3 of our future brides win raffle items. I think it’s safe to say that we’re good luck! I know by the end of the day I had lost my voice from talking to people, but there were just so many great couples to talk to!
Pictured above are: our booth at the expo with Nadine modeling. A past bride of ours Molly, who started her own styling company: Glitter + Rye. The lovely ladies behind Two Little Birds Planning. Beautiful floral arrangements from Love ‘n Fresh Flowers. Jewelry from Over The Moon Handmade. Natalie Diener, a stylist and event planner, and her super cute table. Headbands by Magdalina Designs. And our friends, Tom and Jon of Hi-Society Entertainment and the brains behind the Love Sick Expo! A few candids of the crowd and Roots and Groove spinning records.
More photos of the day can be seen on our flickr set. Note to all vendors who were at the expo: please feel free to use any photos we took of you or your tables, just be sure to give us proper photo credit. Thanks and it was great to meet you all!
Alison and Jess had a perfect, small, winter wedding. We loved working with them, not only because of how great the day was, but because both of them are insanely smart and hilarious. We started our day with them at their hotel getting ready, which just happened to be right next to Rittenhouse Square. We had just enough daylight (and warmth) to take some photos of the two of them in the park before it got dark. The wedding was held at Tangerine, a space that matched these two so well. The sweet ceremony was in the middle room of the former restaurant and was full of Shakespeare sonnets. Alison and Jess really treated their guests to some amazing food and desserts. All in all it was a great party and a fun evening for everyone, even the people working. Thanks for having us along!
