We love Gossip

They love to talk. And we love when they are out there talking about us.

Check out these fun blog posts about balance boudoir ...

On June 20th, the ladies at Bayside Bride posted "Boudoir for the Everyday Woman" with an interview and one of our images. Looks great!

And Alexandra Webb, a Baltimore jeweler and artist keeps a very cool blog called "Inspired Details" for brides to find ideas for their day. She featured us over two days on June 28th and June 29th. The posts were called "Interview with balance boudoir" and also include a bunch of our photographs!

Thanks Ladies, for making balance boudoir part of your blogs! We love it!

Our Eco Chic Wedding Showcase

Okay girls, it's that time again. Yea, we are in the middle of wedding show madness, and yea, there are loads of wedding shows out there. But only one is GREEN and eco-friendly. And only one is co-produced by balance photography: The Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase. Last year's event was a huge success - several hundred people attended to meet the area's most eco-friendly wedding and event vendors.

This year sees the return of our swag bags - chock full of goodies for the first 100 brides, as well as the incredible door prizes!

We will have plenty of free food and drink again - from fab coffee and Honest Tea to organic/local wine and beer - as well as plenty of delish food and cake samples.

And of course, we will once again host the Eco Fashion Show! Nearly one hundred green and vintage designs will strut our catwalk, worn by gorgeous professional models. Check our dresses for your maids and flower girls too!

Get your tickets now - the show is next week!
See you there ~ Rissa
