Philadelphia Event Photographer | Glen Foerd Mansion | ABC Meeting

Business

I had the pleasure of photographing the Association of Bridal Consultants’ meeting at Glen Foerd Mansion last week. Phyllis Jablonowski of Eventricity Floral and Event Design gave an impressive presentation on tabletop planning and setup, instructing the group on an array of napkin folds, proper table setting and spacing, rules for centerpiece design for optimal flow and appeal, and so many more tidbits. It was the perfect size group for an event like this. Coordinators were asking questions, offering advice, and bringing up trends and concerns within the industry. I felt quite lucky to be let into the thought processes going on in the room.

Here are some images from Philly’s gorgeous Glen Foerd on the Delaware. I’ve shot at this Conroy Catering venue a few times now and it always charms me with its intimate rooms filled with historic pieces and character in every corner. The gallery upstairs boasts original art pieces by Monet, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh. You’d never know that this Victorian beauty were there unless you were looking for it.

Thanks again to Rebecca Richman of Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants and Lynda Barness of I Do Wedding Consulting for inviting me to photograph the event!

If nothing else I learned: never put that freaking napkin inside the glass!

[the value of] Guest Sign-in Books
If there’s one thing that couples fall in love with during a consultation that they never considered before, it’s the guest sign-in book. With good reason too.I’ve seen my share of lame-o guestbooks. You know what I’m talking about: that weak keepsake with “Our Wedding” in gold cursive on the front and nothing but rows of lines inside. It’s an attendance book and you’re not likely to ever flip through it again after the wedding.Consider an alternative: a guest sign-in book that makes your guests ooh and ahh and something that you’d be tickled pink to have on your coffee table after the wedding. What a concept! Lindsay Docherty Photograph ...

[the value of] the Oh, snap! Studio
I have been waiting to unveil this for sooooo long!Lindsay Docherty Photography presents (drumroll, please)…It’s like a photobooth but better. The Oh, snap! Studio is an open air, self-contained, mini studio that allows guests to have an absolute blast at your wedding without taking (too) much of a break from the dancefloor. This is not some cobbled together backdrop and tripping-hazard tripod that needs a babysitter nor a tiny box that fits 2 munchkins, at best. The Oh, snap! Studio is a sleek and professional setup that can fit a whole gaggle of people and works at just the press of a button. Let your group go free form or bring your ow ...
