We wanted to share the most recent wedding album we’ve delivered as well as share the news of the new album company we have started using.  Your wedding images belong in an album! It’s just a fact, they weren’t meant to live on your usb drive or on facebook.  They are meant to be enjoyed and treasured and the best way to do that is with a wedding album.  There are many options for albums and it can be overwhelming to decide but we’ve made that process easier by finding this amazing company for you.  We love Madera books and wish we started using them sooner.

I could go on and on about the album, but honestly the images of the album do all the talking for me.

This album is a 10×10 leather album in Khaki leather and comes in a stunning presentation box.

Styled Shoot | Chantilly Place, Sirena Style, Floral Arts & Mr+Mrs Drew Photography

It’s been a long time coming, but here is the full blog post from our summer styled shoot.  A special thanks to the vendors involved, we couldn’t have done it without all your hardwork.  The dresses and accessories were all from Chantilly Place, the hair and makeup was done by Sirena Style, flowers by Floral Arts.  Also a big thanks to our models Chelsea & Kayleigh!  We had a great time working with all these amazing vendors and can’t wait for the next one…that reminds me, we need to start planning one!!  We went classic for this shoot, we wanted to keep it timeless.

We started the shoot off with some details while Sirena was doing her thing with hair and makeup.
