[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 Photography couples get an engagement session with their wedding photography coverage so this is a great way to display all of those fantastic engagement pictures and have something with lots of rooms for guests to write down words of wisdom, good wishes, and heartfelt congratulations.

They’re custom designed around the pictures from your session with room for your guests to get wordy. The cover won’t say “Our Wedding” (unless you want it to). Instead, it’s your favorite picture of you and your hunny.

Since I’m a photographer, I have a few pictures of these fine specimens.

And a few of these books in action:

People seriously crowd around the guestbook table to check out the pictures and write notes. And you’ll get a kick out of looking through it afterwards. Awesome, no?

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 ...
[the value of] a Professional
This is a story of one very amateur crafter who knew her place in the world.It begins with a giddy couple and their brand new house. Their heritage (her a Scot, he a Jew) made the name of their Philly castle quite obvious: Glen Yiddish. She loved all things Pinterest and set about to make a plaque for their abode. She found slate on a string, some paint, a font she loved, and figured, “how hard could this be?”She made an attempt to lightly imprint a reverse image onto the slate (genius, right?). Not so much.Our heroine flipped it over and attempted to just free-hand it. Splotches were made. Mistakes were, um, "revised" with more paint. ...
