A Bright New Addition for the New Year!

This may appear like a typical blog about a fabulous wedding we typically shoot, but we have so much more to share.  We will of course, include a few favorite images.

We take a very personal role with each and every wedding we photograph.  To the point of explaining how important working relationships are in every detail from flowers, to cake, with the entertainment, food… You name it.  So, when this dear couple, Amanda and Brian came to our studio, there was no exception.  They were off to an incredible start with Melissa at Floral Creations and Joe with Sj’s Disc Jockey.

One of the best part of our relationships with our couples, is that the inspiration goes both ways.  Amanda and Brian wanted something they couldn’t find, and I, of course, had to figure a way to make it happen.  Don’t get me wrong.  We have been brainstorming this idea for some time on how to make it our own style and personal touch.  It just took the right couple and the talent of a great friend to help pull it all together.

Amanda and Brian’s wedding was at the Ryde Hotel with all the charm and features a photographer dreams about when capturing timeless moments for their couples.  And Amanda included a little spark of her own.

We find having some of our best moments of inspiration comes so naturally while working with amazing couples and extremely talented professionals. 

Our newest addition to our Ford Family Photography studio services will be a short film of wedding day highlights.  We can’t begin to thank our very dear friend and cinematographer, Sam Harnack, for his talented creation.  We are very excited to be able to offer another personal and customized service for our customers.  Enjoy!

Giving from the Heart

Yes, we are officially into the “Giving Season”.  And yes, we know there are so many opportunities and options for giving back to the community including food drives, coat drives and toys drives.  We are always eager to help where ever we can.  But this year, we really wanted to take it a step further and include our studio family in supporting local families that are only asking for basic needs.  We are loving the fact that other kids besides our own boys are participating and learning about how big a family can truly be when they open their hearts.

Here are some of the items we would still like to add to our collection for our Adopt a Family for the Holidays.  The last day to drop your items off at the studio is Sunday, December 12th.  Please remember, the items can be very simple.  A sweater, a package of socks, a pair of sweats, etc.  We are not asking for large items or expensive clothing.  Just warmth.

Warm Clothes for a little boy age one (size 18 months), little girl age five (size 4t), little girl age one (size 2t).

Diapers and wipes sizes 4 and 5

Family Gift Cards for K-Mart, Ross and Pack & Save.  The cards can be simple amounts of $10, $15, etc. 

Feel free to send us a personal email or call the studio directly and let us know how you can help out these two families.  Thank you for all the support we have been receiving already.  This has been an amazing experience already.  A little goes a LONG way if we all contribute.  And who doesn’t love to shop for little kids’ clothes? 

Thank you for all the giving and support this holiday season.  We have the best studio family and friends around.
