WHY YOU NEED YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS IN TANGIBLE FORM

Wedding Photography Packaging Make & Stow Stamptitude

Anyone that has ever had a conversation with us about film will know how passionate we are about it’s timeless beauty and why we choose to capture our couple’s most treasured memories in this medium. When we first started shooting film, it changed the way we saw everything. It slows us down, to appreciate light and color like we haven’t before. Film is imperfectly perfect, it screams authenticity and that is so captivating. There is a romance about film that can’t be described. Shooting film requires you to search and look for a moment, and experience that moment while capturing it. It keeps you in the present, and the beautiful resulting images are meant to be printed for the future.

The Emotional Experience

I feel like in such a social media filled era, there is definitely a certain nostalgia for the physical. You can’t compare an image on a screen to a printed image. There’s something about seeing it on paper, having something physical in your hands, being able to touch it. Your wedding day is the most sacred, most beautiful, most indescribably unreal experience you will ever know, and we want you to experience that again every time you pour over your photos. Seeing an image come to print is seeing a finished piece of art, and it’s magic for me. Photographs are meant to be experienced, and I adore getting our couple’s images printed, lovingly wrapping them in linen and laying out their memories in an album, because I know that it is going to be treasured and brought out at family gatherings. When you purchase an album or an heirloom box filled with prints, you are buying the experience that your children, and grandchildren will have your memories. Some of the only items we have of my great grandparents are wedding prints, and i’m sure it is the case with your families. They’re one of the only items that will stand the test of time and will always be kept, because they’re a historical record that your love story happened. When you are viewing your photos on your computer, it all just becomes an image – and you miss the experience, the emotion and the story of the image. Touching and feeling physical photos is such a powerful experience and emotionally connects you to your memories.

Expertise and Eye

The wedding experience we seek to give you doesn’t simply end when your photos are delivered. As part of your wedding experience, we strive to deliver you a tangible product that is of the same quality and aesthetic as your wedding photos, as a continuation of your wedding day and memories. A timeless wedding album also isn’t just an assortment of images from your wedding day. It is a carefully curated selection of photos that tell a story – your story. When we capture your wedding in film, we are extremely intentional in the images we capture on your wedding day. We’re actually already going through your album in our heads to ensure that the images we capture can tell the best version of your love story in print. As your photographer, once we sit down to craft your album, we know your images back to front, and we have the artistic eye to know which images to pair up and which of your photos will best represent the emotion and events of your wedding day from start to finish. This storytelling can’t be achieved in the same way when you’re viewing all of your images in a folder on the computer.

Everlasting Memories

Simply put – you want to have your wedding photos in a form that will always be useable and viewable. Technology is constantly changing and evolving. A couple of years ago, wedding images were being delivered on cd’s and floppy disks, and so much current technology no longer supports those mediums. The method in which your digitally scanned wedding photos will be delivered might not always exist in the future, so having a tangible product from your wedding day is a wise investment for your memories. Albums and Heirloom boxes stand the test of time and are not subject to changes in technology, they are always crafted from archival paper and long-lasting inks, designed to last forever and ensure you have a beautiful heirloom to hand down to your families.

Enchanting Garden Wedding at Twin Oaks House and Gardens

It was such a delight to capture Brittni and Ian’s enchanting garden wedding at Twin Oaks House and Gardens. It felt like a real life fairytale! Their day was filled with vintage inspired decor and delicate florals, and had a natural, but whimsical feel which perfectly suited the cottage and lush gardens of their venue.

The bride wore a simple, fitted, lace detailed gown by Badgley Mishka with delicate lace sleeves that she removed for the reception to change up her look. The groom donned an ever-classic navy suit which he paired with an heirloom watch, and his groomsmen wore suits in varying shades of navy to create a timeless and unique compliment. The navy and blush tones created a crisp yet romantic vibe for their winter wedding.

The bouquets and exquisitely romantic ceremony arch created by Siren Floral Co were soft, whimsical and organic. They looked as if they could have been hand picked from the surrounding gardens. Guests joined them in the courtyard for a beautiful dinner under a tented canopy and twinkling lights.

This couple exude so much love and joy, and they are a constant ray of life and beauty to all who have the privilege of knowing them. We love them both and are so honored to have captured their love story.

We’re also so thrilled to share that this darling wedding was featured on Wedding Sparrow! Head over to this post to see the sweet feature!

Romantic Bridal Inspiration Shoot Milagro Winery

Romantic Bridal Inspiration Shoot Milagro Winery

Hi darlings, this is Dani from Dear Lovers! To celebrate the fresh new year, I decided to host a styled bridal shoot inspired by romantic, European beauty. I envisioned a film shoot that was organic and whimsical, soft and romantic, and truly dreamy and timeless. Naturally, I’m in love with blush tones, wind, soft tulle, and spring florals, and I wanted to curate a setting and bring those visions to life in a beautiful and fine art Southern California venue. 

After weeks of searching, I am so grateful to have found a collection of talented vendors, whose creations blended together so beautifully in Ramona’s stunning Milagro Winery. The Winery blossomed with the greenest olive tree groves, which shimmered with silver undertones and created the sweetest atmosphere. In the foreground, our bride, Becka, wore a wonderful dress by Flora and golden floral headpiece, provided by my favorite San Diego bridal shop, The Dress Theory. Her dress dawned the softest lace and a great, magical train, and complemented Kasia Jewelry’s ensemble of custom rings and necklaces. For our stationary, Melissa designed the most gorgeous set, filled with charcoal-illustrated florals, the most delicate paper, and gorgeous typography!

I am thrilled to release this collection of images that came together so beautifully on this sunny, January afternoon. I hope it inspires some creativity in your wedding planning!

Love,

Dani
