Local Wedding Guide: Pennsylvania

It’s that time again — time for another installment of our Local Wedding Guide! We’re selecting various locations to highlight the numerous resources available from our vendor guide members and their favorite pros they love to work with. We’ve tackled six locations so far: North Carolina, Texas, Massachusetts, Florida, the Pacific Northwest, and Indiana + Illinois. Next on the list is Pennsylvania! Most vendors love to travel, so fret not if you’re not in their immediate area!

What is your favorite tip for couples for being photographed on their wedding day?
Love Me Do: Relax and have fun! We want to photograph our clients as genuinely as possible, and the best way to do this is to have a little fun with them! Their wedding day is a huge celebration with all your family and friends around for support. It’s easy to just think about this exciting new step in your lives together. Let that be on the forefront of your mind when you’re getting photographed.

Tell us a little bit about you and what you do.
Love Me Do: There are a ton of amazing photographers out there, and we love them for what they do! When it comes down to it, it’s all about personality. We love getting to know our couples personally and letting them express themselves truly in our photos. Our brides (and grooms) book us because they trust us to let them enjoy themselves on their wedding day, as well as make them look fabulous at the same time!

Tree of Life Films:

See wedding feature here

Tell us a little bit about you and what you do.
Tree of Life Films: We’re a husband and wife team who love creating unique and artistic wedding films. It’s important to us to get to know our couples to make the best film that not only captures their day but them as a couple too. We love Love and and aim to bring out real emotion in our films. We were inspired after we received our own wedding film almost two years ago. We loved the way it captured our day and our love for each other. It made us feel amazing and we wanted to give that to other couples. Tom is an award winning, director of two feature films so it was easy to begin our new venture in wedding filmmaking together. We love what we do and can’t imagine doing anything else!

Any favorite photo spots for engagement sessions or must see sightings?
Tree of Life Films: We love the abandoned trains at the Wycombe Train Station (we chose this for our own engagement shoot too). We love any spots in nature during sunset (best time!).
