Every month we will be sharing with you our absolute favorite photo of the month. These are our favorites not only because of the composition of the picture but also because of the creativity and beauty of the subject.
This month's photo of the month is... a team photo from our holiday party. It's not that often that we can get, the majority, of the team in one place and in front of a camera! Left to Right: John, NJ, Cory, Anne, Jen, Kelly and Bree (missing are Tina and Teresa).Thanks Stef for taking this photo!
Photo Tip of the MonthAs Seen In
Every month we are going to offer up a suggestion to help make your pictures the best they can be! This will not only be tips for you as the subject, but also you as the photographer.
This month's tip is... play with props.
You can use props during your engagement session or on your wedding day. Items like old suitcases, your favorite guitar, parasols on your wedding day. All these things help relay who you are through your photographs. Don't be afraid to ask your photographer to include your pets or get a photo of your grandmother's locket you always wear. These are the things that make you...you!

This month we are spotlighting Lora Ward with A Day to Remember Wedding Consultants
Lora coordinated this fabulous wedding of Lani and Shay with their Casablanca themed reception at the Firehouse Restaurant.
We were able to ask Lora a few questions to get to know her better. Here are a few fun facts we found out:My first job was…
Babysitting (age 10). The first “real paying” job was as a legal secretary for a law office.If I wasn’t a planner, I would be…
It’s hard to imagine not being an “alpha female” but after all these many years, I long to sit in a lush, beautifully landscaped garden, and mindlessly flip magazine pages (naturally a wedding magazine!). My top favorite item to incorporate into event design...
Emotion (includes laughter, happy tears, sentimentality, anticipation and even awkward embarrassment.) The CD currently playing in my car is…
A collection of funk, disco and old school – the 70’s were my formative dancin’ years!The most extravagant wedding I ever planned was…
I have enjoyed coordinating many wonderful weddings, however, one of the more beautiful and a bit on the “extravagant” side was one held on a hillside above the Pacific Ocean, at the beautiful Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, CA. All guests wore white, the groom entered the ceremony riding a beautiful white horse, the bride enjoyed two wedding gowns, white doves were released, the guests dined on a 6 course dinner in a stunning theatrically lighted room, the wedding cake was taller than the groom, and the evening’s entertainment was a famous Flamenco guitarist flown in for the reception.Tea or coffee? Wine or Beer? Plain or Peanut?
Never coffee… unless it has Amaretto, whipped cream and chocolate slivers on top! Cold crisp Chardonnay. Mounds over Almond Joy.Around Town
