Vintage Signage

May 31, 2011

Last week after I posted the photos from Melissa & Kevin’s engagement session, I got a couple of e-mails about their adorable “Save the Date” sign. This sign was custom made for the couple by the amazing Cheryl Westerkamp at My Primitive Boutique.

In the run up to the session, both Melissa and Kevin had expressed their desire to have a”Save the Date” photo that was personal, reflected who they are as a couple, and the theme they have planned for their October Wedding. So I immediately hit up Etsy.com. If you’ve never been to this website then you’re obviously not a shopaholic girl with a passion for the uniquely vintage. Its is most definitely mecca for the shabby chic. But this website lead me Cheryl who makes the most fabulous “Vintage Cottage Style” decor, and as soon as I saw her work, I flipped. It was exactly what I was looking for and perfect for Melissa and Kevin. The only problem? We were 4 days away from the shoot, and all of Cheryl’s signs are hand-made and customized, so they would take some time. But I had to have one. I immediately e-mailed Cheryl to explained the situation and within the hour she had e-mailed me back to say she was on it. 3 days later I had the sign and the very next day we did the shoot. I cannot thank Cheryl enough for stepping up to the plate like that. She made me a very happy photographer. Thank you so much Cheryl, your a total rockstar.
