Lindsay Docherty Photography Best of 2011 Canvas Giveaway

Business

You know that sweet and syrupy holiday that’s coming up next week? The one with the flowers and hearts and naked babies with wings and candy and romance… Yeah, Valentine’s Day. It’s a day that’s been smashed over the head by Hallmark and Godiva but it’s still valuable. I like that we may have absolutely crazy lives filled with hectic jobs and unstable in-laws and teething babies and gassy dogs and home renovations and and and… but we have this arbitrary day that reminds us to make a concerted effort to stop and say, “Hey… I love you.” Maybe you do it all the time but some people need that reminder come February. You don’t need to get all extravagant but you can indulge a little, can’t you? My job puts me smack dab in the middle of love all year round and it’s pretty awesome.

I’m showing my love by holding a contest and giving away a totally free 20×30” gallery art canvas (a $569 value) to two lucky couples from 2011 and YOU get to decide who wins them. Last year’s contest was a resounding success and 2011 brought so many fantastic couples that I’ve had split this into two giveaways – one for engagement sessions and one for weddings.

[the value of] Fantastic Event Lighting
The other day I was talking to Becky over at Synergetic Sound + Lighting about my strong feelings towards additional lighting at weddings. I think it does more to a room than any other element.

Scratch that, lighting is EVERYTHING. (Hello… the prefix “photo” means light.)Not only can lighting make or break the feel of your wedding, it can do the same for your wedding photography.

Jose Garces | Private Event Photography in Bucks County
It was such a pleasure to photograph Chef Jose Garces’ Luna Farm (named after Luna, the family’s bulldog) for a private event last month. The 100% organic 40-acre farm in Bucks County is gorgeous. There are sprawling fields rows upon rows of fruits and vegetables used in the famous Garces family restaurants on the east coast (JG Domestic, Amada, Distrito, Garces Trading Co., Tinto, Village Whiskey, Rosa Blanca). It is the family's calming and lovely retreat from the city. What an incredible outdoor kitchen, right? Guests mixed and mingled on the patio with the Iron Chef himself while munching on beautiful and tasty hors ...
