Linda & Jeremy - Engagement

Some people might think that "blog" is short for "weblog" - not so, its short for "backlog." Ok, ok - its not, but we've been concentrating on getting caught up with editing weddings and engagement sessions, so the blog kind of moves down on the list of priorities! But we are taking a short break from editing to update it now!!

We've gotten really used to shooting a lot in the city, so it was nice to change things up a bit with a more "country" setting. Cross Creek Park was beautiful in October, and it was a place that Linda and Jeremy have spent time together in the past. We love to explore new places, and we were amazed that we had never heard of this beautiful park, and it was only 30 minutes from where we live!

Linda & Jeremy are planning an October 2009 wedding, so I was so excited to get these vibrant colors in their engagement pictures to match their Fall wedding!





We can't wait to Linda & Jeremy's wedding, and they were nice enough to refer us to Linda's cousin Elizabeth too! (And we'll posting a few images from their NYC session shortly!).

Take care,
Laura

The announcement! Soiree in the City! Saturday, January 17th, 2009


We are very excited to announce that we will be holding our very first "Bridal Event" at our studio in January!

"Soiree in the City" - THE bridal styling event in Philadelphia...

January 17th - 2pm-8pm (or later!)
Laura Eaton Photography Studio
158 North 3rd Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106

Please visit the following site to RSVP and for more information:
www.soireeinthecity.com

We would love to see all of our past, present and future brides (and friends!) at this event! Its mainly about "bridal" but there will be plenty of other "retail-therapy" available to help with those post-holiday blues!

We created this event to be the alternative to the typical "bridal show." A very select number of vendors will be on hand to show you the newest fashions, the best makeup, give great styling tips... basically we'll help you make the best of the most stylish day of your life! And unlike the other "bridal shows" we won't bombard you with high-pressure-sales or "win a two-night honeymoon get-away!" - we think you know what you want and know where to find it!

And we are thrilled to be hosting the first ever US trunk show for Bonzie!

Bonzie is an independent fashion label based in Ireland, and they make THE most fabulous bridal accessories I have ever seen! The second I laid eyes on their beautiful wraps and boleros I immediately got their contact info and invited them to this event. For one night only, you'll get a chance to see their beautiful fashions in person, try them on, purchase select accessories or place an order for a couture piece (a custom wedding look made just for you? Every bride's dream!).

Participating vendors will include:

B├ęke Beau - Makeup Artist
Kristel Closets - Style Consultants
Dawn Lewis Designs - Custom Jewelry

There is no charge for this event, but you must RSVP to attend! Please visit soireeinthecity.com and click the RSVP link... The first 50 girls to RSVP will be guaranteed to receive one of our exclusive goodie bags!

Hope to see you there!
Laura

December First Friday! And BIG announcement coming soon!

Just wanted to post to remind everyone that we will be open for "First Friday" - December 5th from (roughly) 5-9pm (I say "roughly" because we were about 15 minutes late due to traffic last time!).

Laura Eaton Photography
158 North 3rd Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106

Dawn Lewis Designs (www.dawnlewisdesigns.com) will be in the studio, showing off her fabulous custom-made, one-of-a-kind jewelry!

Perfect timing to get a head-start on your holiday shopping (since I haven't even begun to think about Christmas shopping, I refuse to believe that anyone else has already started!).

This will also be the last night of our "Bodies of Light" Exhibit - so if you will be in the area, feel free to stop by, say hello and have a glass of wine!

Oh, and the BIG announcement..... well, I'm not saying anything yet - and you might be able to find out a little something if you come to the studio on Friday... ;)
