Caralabra Candles

Candle artisan gets fresh web content

Who Needs Fresh Web Content? YOU DO!

Calling all independent business owners, artists, entrepreneurs and service providers!  I’m about to drop a truth bomb to help you freshen up your business and book more work.  YOU NEED PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS. Why? Because  investing in web content and the image you present is crucial to staying afloat in today’s market. 

No matter what your hustle is, you need to keep your web content and social media photos fresh, eye catching and recent.  For instance, grainy selfies present the most amateur version of yourself. Therefore, these photos don’t attract clients or employers.  Hiring a professional photographer who can translate your vision into images that attract your ideal client is key. First of all, prospective clients want to connect with you. Secondly, they want to know  what your brand is.  Often times, your “brand”, is just you.  We can help you craft the best images for the message you want to convey, because nothing is more important than having imagery that really represents who you are, right now.  That’s what fresh web content can do for you.

Cara of Caralabra

For this web content shoot we worked with Cara, the owner and artisan behind Caralabra Candles .  Cara infuses herbs and crystals into her hand poured candles to match the magical intentions she creates.  We love our witchy community of artists and nature lovers, so it was nice to include a bit of that as well.  (If you didn’t see our first witchy entrepreneur shoot with Lily Cheshire, I highly suggest you check that one out too!)

Psydde from Delicious Boutique provided the GORGEOUS outfits, and I’m obsessed with all of them.  The eagle skull details on the hooded leather vest are some of the most beautiful details I’ve ever seen.  Cara and I both decided we need that green dress…because it’s seriously perfect.  I loved our location choice for this one.  It had beautiful nature spots, creepy abandoned rooms, and pretty brick walls. What else could you ask for?  Cara does such a beautiful job on hair and makeup, we didn’t need an MUA for this one, but we can hook you up with great makeup artists for your shoot too!

Does your web content imagery reflect who you are and what you’re doing right now? Let’s change that!

Estate at Eagle Lake Wedding

Summer New Jersey Wedding

Julia and Keith’s Estate at Eagle Lake Wedding was a joy to be part of.  Located in the heart of New Jersey’s central farm land, the Estate at Eagle Lake is a stunning venue for a summer New Jersey wedding.  The grounds are filled with beautiful walkways and gardens overlooking a lovely lake.  Julia and Keith’s wedding reception had a relaxed summer vibe that included lots of lawn games, good friends and family and lots of laughs.

Prep

Everyone got ready at the venue. One of the bonuses of having an Estate at Eagle Lake wedding is the large salon area which is great for large bridal parties.  The girls got their hair and makeup done right on the premises, which helped make the day run flawlessly. Julia’s dress from Angel Bridal was the perfect choice for an effortless  summer New Jersey wedding.

First Look and Bridal Party

The two chose to do a sweet first look at the dock on the lake, followed by some fun bridal party photos before heading out to the ceremony.

Ceremony

The ceremony took place at Julia’s church, The Orthodox Church of the Holy Cross.  It was a lovely ceremony filled with traditions, beautiful music and candle light.

Photo Walk

The venue is so full of beautiful paths and garden areas that there are loads of spots for a photo walk. Due to the super harsh sun that day, we chose a shady path along the water that was absolutely perfect.

Reception

The layout of the venue was perfect for a summer wedding.  The tented area was open to the grounds, where guests could take a casual stroll outside, take photos and play lawn games.  I love cupcakes for summer weddings.  These had a sweet assortment of flower and succulent frosting.

Reception Sneak Out

One of the staff from the venue gave us a thumbs up when he thought it was a good time for sunset photos.  We jumped on a couple of golf carts and grabbed a few of the couple snuggling in the sunset. It was the perfect ending to a beautiful summer wedding day.
