Caught another couple getting engaged! Kate & Christopher at Old City Cheese Shop - Philadelphia

I was just finishing up my day at the studio, and as I was locking the front door I ran into Alex, the owner of Old City Cheese Shop (by the way, new website for them coming soon!). I was asking if it was a busy night, and he mentioned that it wasn't too bad... oh, and there is a couple getting engaged in the back courtyard...

"What?" - so I grabbed my camera and asked him to see if the guy had actually proposed yet. Well ring was already in place, but they were still very much "in the moment," so I asked if they wouldn't mind me grabbing a few photos....

Thankfully they were thrilled, as it turns out he did remember to bring a camera, but the batteries were dead! I was so happy to have caught this for them!

Christopher really did pick the perfect spot to propose, not only does Old City Cheese Shop have great food and a fun atmosphere, but the back courtyard is pure romance! Its hard to believe that something that looks like a hidden corner of Venice exists in the middle of Philly.

Kate and Christopher, thanks again for letting me document this - you two are so cute! I will be sending along your images shortly!

Venice Engagement & Paris Wedding published in Rangefinder... And plans for a workshop in Puerto Rico!

We are thrilled to announce that our story about Tatiana & Julien's Venice engagement and Paris wedding just got published in the February 2009 issue of Rangefinder Magazine!

You can read the full article here:

We submitted this article to Bill Hurter at Rangefinder quite a while ago, and while we got the green light that it would be published in the special "Wedding Issue," we were still hesitant to say anything until we were able to hold the magazine in our hands!

We've had such a tremendous response already - thanks so much to everyone for your kind words. We can't describe how much it means to us...

Now on to the slightly tricky part - our workshop! We initially wanted to do a workshop for "Photographer Couples" in Puerto Rico in April, but due to the number of weddings we have now booked that month, we are going to have to push back our plans to late 2009...

The workshop/seminar will be mainly for couple-photographers and partnerships, but anyone is welcome to attend. We'll focus on making your partnership work for your business (in both day-to-day operations and marketing) and a large part of the trip will be about creating great destination wedding images and building your portfolio (so you can get those destination weddings!).

If you are a photographer and are interested in the workshop, please email me directly at or call 609.954.0488. We are still in the planning stages, but we will have a website up shortly!

Thanks again to everyone!
Take care,
Laura & Paul
