Photography: Keepsake Photography (review)

From the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of The Wedding Ring ONTARIO Magazine

Keepsake-Photography-Brantford-Boudoir-Photography{expert tip & gallery} Boudoir Sessions provide the ultimate gift you can give your true love and yourself 

An expert tip by Sherry Smith, Owner of Keepsake Photography (website | review)

FEBRUARY 2015 | Whether it's the anniversary of the day you met, your wedding day or just because, it can be tricky to find a truly great gift for your fiancé. That's why so many brides turn to boudoir shoots as an amazing and special gift for their soul mate.

Imagine your soulmate's surprise and delight when they open up a custom designed album, only to see beautiful, sexy, playful images (selected by you from your private gallery) of their true love.

Sherry Smith, Owner and Principal Photographer at Keepsake Photography explains, “Boudoir Photography has been making a huge comeback in recent years and is a perfect opportunity to remind yourself how gorgeous, confident and sexy you really are. These sessions are often empowering… confidence-building and liberating.”


Extreme Makeover: Wedding Venues Edition (Part One)

PART ONE | For some brides, options are limited when it comes to choosing a reception space. Sometimes the local community centre or legion hall fits your size, budget or availability needs best, yet doesn't tie in with the wedding desigin you've envisioning. In fact, even gorgeous halls can need a makeover in order to fit in with in your theme and style.

But with a great decorator, you can make just about any location fit the vision of your dream wedding. Cindy Hefferan, owner and decorator at Now and Always Special Event Decor in Paris, Ontario (read review here) tells us that any space can be made over, to look incredible, if you do it right. “All it takes is a little imagination [and some serious decorating talent] to make any venue the ideal venue for your wedding.” Here a few examples of how Cindy can turn drab into fab!!

Both vintage and rustic style weddings are here to stay and Cindy of Now & Always says including wrought iron details in your vintage or rustic wedding day is making a classic comeback.
