We just love an awesome Photographer here at Erin Grace Events! This month, we are excited to share the work of Vintage Modern Photography with you! From creating the perfect engagement setting to capturing the light of your love on your wedding day, Vintage Modern Photography offers service like no other! I adore that they offer videography and photo booths services as well!
Who Is Vintage Modern Photography?
We recently caught up with Samantha to learn more about the team at Vintage Modern Photography…. here’s what she had to say about about inspiration and creating picture perfect pictures!
List 3 blogs or websites you use for inspiration:
Green Wedding Shoes showcases whimsical vintage inspired weddings… our favorite! Once Wed and Style me Pretty are always great although there’s a new blog we’re falling in love with called Le Magnifique (http://www.lemagnifiqueblog.com/) with pretty and romantic wedding inspiration. Now we could not live without Pinterest to get to know our brides better by following their wedding inspiration boards. Oh my that’s 5, but oh, how we love being inspired!
What are the benefits a bride will experience when using your services?
A high level of personal service (along with their wedding planner!), like shopping at Nordstrom or Saks Fifth Avenue. We work hard as a team to make everything a personal experience for our couples, one that reflects their love and their individuality. We work with couples to plan a romantic engagement session that creates a story of their love as well as a unique, fun adventure! We listen and work with the wedding plans to prepare ahead for the wedding day photography. A couple spends more time with their wedding photographers than anyone else on their special day as we are with them photographing every step of the day. We make sure that it’s a great experience for the couple, their friends and family while we keep ourselves in the background.
What makes your work stand out?
Light…that sounds like basic photography right? But we look for that special quality of light that illuminates our subjects in an ethereal, romantic way. Our clients always comment on our images being filled with beautiful light. Because we love romance and believe that the time from engagement to the wedding is the foundation of a new family bound by love and joy, the light focuses on that…our style reflects that as well. We also have a whimsical point of view which brings out the joy in our couples and in their photographs as well as video. You can see that the couple is having a great time and that they are truly in love by looking at the images we create with them and for them.
What are some of your hobbies outside the wedding industry?
Samantha loves to knit…her latest challenge is to knit a chevron throw. Her knitted creations have been such a hit she now whips them up and sells them on etsy in her Woolrus shop. (http://www.etsy.com/shop/WoolrusHandmadeKnits) Virginia loves to sew and craft. She has made lace kites, vintage style dresses and florals for our engagement and glamour/beauty sessions that often end up on our Vintage Modern Photography etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/VintageModernPhotog). Sydney loves to travel, she has lived in Ecuador, Mexico and New Orleans when she helped with Katrina relief work. She also loves to cook…trying new recipes and entertaining friends. That comes in handy with our brides and grooms since Sydney has a gift with people so she really puts couples at ease and makes things fun at our sessions and weddings.
What do you want a bride to know about your business?
It’s so important for a bride and groom to trust their photographer/videographer to capture the romance and love of the day they have worked so hard to plan. After the cake is gone and the dress put away, a couple wants to be able to relive the best parts of the day every time they look at the photography and video. We take that seriously, we prepare thoroughly and we work to surpass expectations.
We are inspired by vintage photography with a modern point of view so a fun thing we offer for engagement sessions is Samantha’s amazing stop motion videos inspired by the old penny arcade nickolodeons…. a vintage inspired music video of a couple’s personal love story! We also offer custom photobooths with backgrounds and props created to go with the theme of the wedding. We also started offering Sydney’s videography so we work together as a family team to create the best storytelling of images in photography along with video highlights of a wedding day. You can see our video in stop motion and cinema highlights on our website under CINEMA.
Vintage Modern Photography has been featured in Ceremony Magazine and Mingle as well as won awards and features on international photography blogs. The most important recognition to Vintage Modern Photography is the happiness and recommendation of their couples.
