Unveiling So Many Things

It's the moment we've all been waiting for....the unveiling of Laura & D.R's painting.  Thank you everyone for being so patient.  There were a few finishing touches I wanted to add to this post before presenting it, including a new photographer I want to introduce you to.
So, here it is...
Flowers by Elegant Creations in New Jersey
There are so many amazing flowers going on in this piece with subtle hints of color that make it more than an all white bouquet. 
The painting was captured perfectly by one of my new favorite photographers...Anne Truppe of Tru StudioTru Studio is a husband/wife team comprised of Anne and Steve and their love for viewing all things beautiful behind the lens of their cameras.  Here are the answers to a few questions Reenie Rose decided to ask Tru Studio:

1. How long have you been in business?
 We have been in business for just over a year!
2. Toot your own horn....what’s your specialty?
 Bringing out people's emotions and documenting it in an artistic yet honest and true-to-life fashion. 
3. Who or what are your favorite subjects to photograph....your dream photo session?
 People who are completely in love, who are fun, quirky, and have an appreciation for art and design. We love to have a good time, and always love working with people who don't take themselves too seriously and can laugh along with us. 
4. Craziest thing you’ve captured on camera?
 Somehow we always seem to put ourselves into compromising positions while on shoots. For example, Anne ended up in a pothole one time and Steve dove into a pine tree. We do our best to capture these very 'professional' moments for our private collection. :) 
5. What do you like about working in the wedding industry?
 We have been so impressed with how open and collaborative everyone in the industry is. It's refreshing to be surrounded by such talented, driven people. In regards to our clients, we enjoy having the opportunity to meet and work with various types of people. We love working so closely with our couples and have even made some great friends! 
6. When you are not working, what are you up to?
 Well, we are a bit of workaholics :) but, when we finally tear ourselves away we love to make French Press coffee, go hiking and enjoying the outdoors, traveling to new places, creating design projects, decorating our apartment, and cooking together - food pretty much rules our life, especially pizza! 
7. Anything new and exciting coming up that we should know about?
 Now that our wedding season is finished, we are looking forward to having more time to shoot for ourselves. We have been dreaming up shoot concepts to continue to push ourselves as artists and keep things fresh. You'll have to stay tuned!

Thanks Anne and Steve!  I'm looking forward to many more opportunities to work together!

Before I forget, the answer to last post's mystery image of Paula Jean and Brian's painting plus print...
Print on the left; painting on the right
Pretty close, huh!?  Something to keep in mind when looking to fill some wall space.  Prints are a great, affordable option and still very unique....not many people own prints thus far.

On that note, happy weekend to everyone and happy Veteran's Day to all those that have and are currently serving our country so bravely.  We owe so much to your service.  Thank you.
