It's the Little Things
This is one of our bridal portraits printed on silk and handmade by family team members. We are a family business so we are excited to feature quality handmade photo gifts made by our loved ones from our house to yours. Weddings by Lyons Photography offers custom photo gifts. This could also be a creative DIY project if you wanted to make your own!
When we meet with couples over coffee for a wedding consultation, it is understandably a bit difficult to bring all the handmade items of thephotomakery so I am hoping the above images highlight those details, and what was featured in our booth at the #CincinnatiWeddingShowcase. Everything on display from the canvases on our pallet display wall to the small photo tags (pictured in the center) to the silk photo pillow and the images printed on vintage book pages were created using the images that we have photographed at weddings. The application of those images on fabric, paper craft, canvas or traditional images blends our love for photography and creating unique gifts. Additionally, we make photo cards, and photo transfers on wood and metal.
We treat our customers using The Golden Rule as we would want others to treat us. Let us know if there is a creative, handmade photomakery detail you would like to see. We can be reached via e-mail:

DIY Photo Tags + The Photo Makery
These photo tags were a big hit at our recent wedding photography booth at Cincinnati Wedding Showcase. I wanted to share how you could use this for a #DIY as part of your wedding as they would make adorable place cards for a rehearsal or reception dinner. I tea-stained manilla tags which I purchased from Staples. As they were drying overnight, I took my 2.5 in. x 3.5 in. images & in Photoshop put them on an 11"x14" canvas, and had them printed out as color 11"x17"copies as I wanted plenty of room for a thick bleed. I trimmed the color copies and attached the images to the tags with archival adhesive. The finishing details were to tie off the string at the top, remove the reinforcement circle, and stamp the back with our logo.
The results were fun. Wouldn't this would be cute with the bride & groom's image, or engagement pix on one side and their new address on the other?

"My husband and I can not give enough praise to Weddings by Lyons Photography! Not only were the pictures taken for our wedding unbelievably beautiful, but they make having your picture taken enjoyable as well! Cathy and Mark make an incredible team."
"Cathy and Mark Lyons were the perfect photographers at our wedding. Not only did they take artistic and beautiful photographs, they also worked closely with my mother to accommodate her wishes. They were discreet at the ceremony, and during the group pictures afterwards, they had such a knack for working with the entire family to enjoy themselves as they efficiently shot many amazing photos. Their work ethic is exemplary!"
