*This is a paid post from an APW Sponsor*
You guys! Today I get to write about Hannah, which makes me feel approximately like the bride in the above photo. More formally, I get to write about Hannah, she that is the power behind Stonehouse Photo. So many things to tell you about her, where shall I start? Well, first of all Hannah and Stonehouse Photo have been with APW since just about ever. Not only has she been an APW sponsor since the dawn of time, she’s a HUGE HUGE APW cheerleader. She loves what’s going on here, she loves you guys, she loves shooting your weddings (and she’s so so nice to me, and she’s going to be so so nice to you.)
BUT! It actually gets better than that. Hannah is, drumroll please, in the upper Midwest. Which makes her, literally, the only APW photographer located in the Midwest. Stonehouse Photo is headquartered in the Duluth, Minnesota and Bayfield, Wisconsin area, and she travels from Chicago to Fargo to the Twin Cities (to all you APW couples starved for wedding elves).
Things that you should know about Hannah other than she’s really freaking kind and funny, imminently sane, and she takes great pictures: she mostly shoots candidly, and she shot what is seriously to this day one of my all time favorite weddings on APW: Carrie & Ian’s wedding on a frozen lake. Have you seen it? Because if you have not seen it, hold the phone. Go. We’ll be here when you get back. When I posted this wedding my parents CALLED ME ABOUT IT. No joke.
On top of that, Stonehouse Photo has recently decided that they want to help brides figure out photography, regardless of whether or not they are clients are not (I know, in the wedding industry that sounds like it’s going to be a trick, but it’s not). Hannah has started recording videos where she sort of downloads her tremendous knowledge of the industry into your head.
I’m particularly fond of the video about making sure wedding photography doesn’t take over your wedding. Because seriously? Yes. But you should check out (and bookmark) her continuing series, if you’re in the process of figuring out what the eff wedding photography is anyway, and what you need to know about it.
So. Now I’m going to stop talking, so all of you in the Midwest can start cheering. Go look, go look.
