New Product – olfakt Scratch’n’sniff wedding albums

Yes this was our April Fool’s post for 2011 🙂

Every year at the end of March we phase out some of the products that we offered the year before and add new ones.  We’re super-excited to offer our 2011 and 2012 brides the latest in flushmount album technology, the german made
Olfakt ONE – the world’s first leather-bound skratch and sniff wedding album.

olfakt ONE, worlds' first scratch and sniff wedding albums, offered exclusively by Lisette and Alessandro Di Sciascio of Di Sciascio Photography, South Florida wedding photography

These gorgeous creations, wrapped in the finest polish leather are soaked for months in aloe vera lotion for an even more exquisite nasal experience (you can rub your nose on the cover of the album and you won’t experience any redness).
The miracle though happens as you turn the pages and are greeted by not only the colors of your wedding, but the smells as well!  Imagine being taken back to your hair and makeup session with our wonderful “13 – whymsical cloud of hair spray” scented page, transitioning to the next page where you’re putting on your gown and taking in a wiff of “5- Secret – you know the tagline!” (other scents from popular antiperspirants are available a-la-carte).
The experience can go in any direcition you’d like.  Every spread of your album can be laced with the wonderful smells of the day. Choose from:
“19 – Fresh Roses in Blossom“, “87 – rolling in a fields of daisies,” but also scents appropriate for the guy’s getting ready shots, such as “69 – Jack and Jose together at last,”  “49 – scents from the football field,” and “27 – just because my palms are sweaty doesn’t mean I’m freaking out”

The albums feature flush-mount seamless spreads on Kodak Ektachrome paper, the scents are abundantly poured upon the spreads so we do recommend allowing the album to air out for a period of 18 days after receiving your book.
here’s how you use the book:

Additional reception-specific scents are available a-la-carte though they aren’t appropriate for all clients.  They include:
“107- Had a bit too much tequila,” “103- Grinding on the dance floor,” “43 -Family formals smell of old folks,” and the very risque “199 -Technically this wasn’t supposed to happen until later”

We hope all our clients and friends had a fun and safe April Fools’ day, and just as a reminder… if you head over to our facebook page we’re giving away our Portrait Guide for looking awesome in your own photos or professional ones… as well as tips on selecting wall art sizes.  The information in the guide comes from our own experience and from reading the thoughts on the subject of dozens of other very well respected photographers.

Wedding Guest Book Sample – Josie and George Miami Wedding

Welcome to the first blog post under the new Di Sciascio name!

We might do a post about the name change… we’re thinking to even include a little background on how the new branding evolved, but that’s the subject for another day.  Today we’re excited to show you the very first product to sport our new branding … and it’s something we’re very happy about since it’s the highest quality, nicest Wedding Guest Book we’ve ever done.  Which is kind of the point with the new branding anyway 🙂

So let’s start off with that logo… for the very first time ever in print:

And here are some shots that show off the wedding guestbook:

we can fully customize the incredible canvas cover with photos from our client’s engagment sessions, or with their Wedding Photography if the book is being purchased as an add-on coffee-table book to have ready for your friends to browse through.

Notice the spine allows for lay-flat viewing

Here you should be able to see a detail of the amazing textured paper. It’s fantastic for your Wedding guests to write on but it’s also just an incredible tactile experience even for a coffee book that will not be written in.

and a few of the spreads…

as you can see we designed some of the spreads for your wedding guests to write in and some are simply display spreads featuring images.

This guestbook is a 14″x11″ horizontal layout, the largest, most amazing one we offer our Wedding Photography and Portrait Photography clients. We also offer smaller sizes.

Jaelin and Dave Married in Aspen, CO – Wedding Album – South Florida Destination Wedding Photographer

Just finished The Studio Sample album for Jaelin and Dave’s wedding in Aspen.

While I often find some photos that I really like from every wedding, I never really fall in love with them until they come to life in the Artbook Album. Maybe it’s because from the moment I flip the switch on the first camera as the bride begins her day to the moment I flip the switch off on the last camera at the end of the day I’m constantly thinking of finding that next image that will help me tell the story of the day in the album. Maybe it’s because I love seeing the images next to one another, contrasting themes, contrasting color versus b/w … I don’t know what it is.

What I do know is that the moment I place my logo on that very last page and then leaf through the completed album to see my work presented in the way I always intended it to be seen, I get a silly smile on my face and I get energized about shooting the next love story.

Jaelin and Dave. I had a fantastic time shooting these two wonderful people’s engagement session back in early ’09 … and I was honored to join them for their wedding in Aspen in mid January.

I hope their family and friends will see this studio sample album and relive that magic day.

Jaelin and Dave, one more time congratulations and best wishes on a very very long and happy marriage.

You can see the whole album below in a convenient page-flipping interface.  Enjoy and please let me know what you think in the comments!

South Florida Wedding Photography – Anna and Sean – Studio Album


Anna and Sean’s Studo Album is done, and ahead of schedule! (What is a Studio Album and how is it different from the couple’s Wedding album?)  Keep reading and you’ll find a link to see the whole album in an online page-flipping interface.  Above you can see one of my favorite spreads… I just LOVE Anna’s expression as she looks at herself in the mirror in her wedding gown for the very first time.  Truth be told, with brides this gorgeous my job is way too easy! 🙂  I also really like seeing the bridesmaids getting ready and the killer shot of their awesome kicks!

This one below is one of Nadia’s favorites, featuring both Anna and Sean’s first dance and their dances with the moms, a wonderfully moving moment of their special day.

We expect to have all the proofs up by the end of the week as promised, hopefully sooner.

In the meantime please enjoy Anna and Sean’s Studio Album and of course, Please let us know what you think in te comments – it means a lot to us to hear your feedback! 🙂

Ahyde and Denis’ Wedding Album – Fort Lauderdale Wedding Photographer

South Florida is such a special place to get married.  Wonderful beaches, wonderful weather, world-class accomodations.  Lucky for Ahyde and Denis they only had to drive maybe 10 miles to get married on the sand at the historic Yankee Clipper hotel on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

We are so excited!  This was one of the funnest weddings we’ve done.  Ahyde was gorgeous!  Check out Denis’ expression when he first sees her coming down the isle accompanied by her son!  The bridesmaids looked great in their orange dresses, and the guys were great!  they all had a great sense of humor … you have to see the football sequence (Denis is a big Jets  and Dolphins fan).

We were very happy with all of the spreads.  We had a hard time picking favorites to show you here.

Lisy really likes this one:

Ahyde and Denis Wedding - First Dance
After long deliberations, I’ve decided to post this one as my favorite:

Ahyde and Denis Wedding - Exchange of Vows

Be sure to check out the whole album available online now by clicking here.

All the photos from the beach wedding and reception were taken at the Yankee Clipper in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The engagement photos were taken at T.Y. Park in Hollywood, Florida.
