Wedding : Rona + Kivanc – Hopewell Valley Vineyards

Meet Rona + Kivanc. Our client/photographer relationship started as most of our relationships do, an email inquiry from them, a response from us. What made this relationship a bit different is that Rona and Kivanc don’t live in the US as most of our clients do, they live in Europe! Yeah, super cool. So while we couldn’t set up our usual Starbucks coffee date for our first meeting, we set up a short phone conference and the rest was history. We actually met Rona and Kivanc for the first time on their wedding day, but truth be told, it felt like we knew them for a long time, which was great, because it made working with them so easy. Rona + Kivanc’s wedding took place in beautiful Hopewell Valley Vineyards, about an hour from the city. Their reception was held under a gorgeous lighted tent and showcased truly unique details like empty tea containers in addition to the traditional vases for flowers, to the most beautiful non-traditional bridesmaids dresses we’ve EVER seen. These details really set their wedding apart in a very special way. One of my favorite things about this wedding was the guest list! Their guest really flew from all parts of the country to celebrate their special day. Rona and Kivanc also used our photobooth for their wedding and, well yeah.. that was a blast!

We want to Thank Rona + Kivanc for having us along to document their special day! Your wedding was truly beautiful and we enjoyed every bit of it! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

The Photohoot® is here!

Whats up guys!

Last year we contemplated the idea of including a photobooth with our photography package, but had no clue how to go about it! I thought of so many set ups, researched online, and eventually tossed idea after idea as nothing I saw came close to what I wanted to offer — good quality and INSTANT PRINTS.

So for a year I continued to contemplate, research and read. I bought some real nice and unique props, purchased a good printer, used my old studio setup and one of the many backdrops I already owned…lol…made a visit to Ikea, had our original logo designer come up with a nice little logo and came up with a name for our booth. Lastly and most importantly, I got together with the best team I can probably have to run the booth, my own family.

Last weekend while I was running behind my wonderful couple — Angie, Chanel and Tito, set up shop and made what once was just a silly idea, come to life!…As you can see this not really your conventional booth inside a box and I actually prefer it this way. It definitely gives people more room to squeeze in. Anyway, we still have some tweaking to do but we wouldn’t know what to fix without knowing what’s broken first right? Trial and error is your best teacher.

Can’t wait for the next wedding that we get to use our cool kick ass photobooth in!

I’d like to take a second to thank Alice + Matt, as well as their fun guests for taking full advantage and enjoying our PhotoHoot® !
