We are off to a quiet start to the week which is much needed after this weekend. It consisted of a lot of fall festivities with friends and family plus a photoshoot, a milk paint demo, a girls night out, a Halloween party & parade and a baby shower. Well now that doesn’t look like that much listed here but I can assure it was and I’m beat so let me just tell you all about our photoshoot on Friday.
Earlier this year I met Philadelphia wedding photographers Cathie and Al from BG Productions. We chatted about our mutual love for all things vintage and repurposed as they dig that style too. Then I started following their fun and active facebook page where Cathie posts lots of gorgeous wedding and family pictures. I love her shooting and editing styling. She captures a certain mood and depth in the colors. That is the best way I can describe it.
When they posted a contest for a Mess the Dress session, I was all in! I particularly like the fact that BG Productions calls it Mess the Dress as opposed to Trash the Dress because I really don’t want to trash it, tear it, paint it, burn it or do anything crazy to it. I love my wedding dress and look for opportunities to wear it again like, say, out canoeing.
Or fishing with my husband.
Hiking past a covered bridge.
Or people watching in the park.
Cathie and Al nailed our Mess the Dress session and they are fun to work with! We’ll certainly treasure these along with our actual wedding photos. That concludes our year of posing for professional photos as a couple which began last fall with our engagement shoot. Now we just have to get around to creatively framing and displaying our multitude of photos. I wonder how many pictures of yourself is too many to have in your own house?
