Today we’re delighted to welcome brand new APW sponsor Whitney Huynh Photography. Whitney is located in Georgia (and may I say, all the other APW photographers in her region clearly love her to bits), but she’s not just a photographer for the south! Nope! Whitney is based in Duluth, Georgia, but also frequently shoots in both Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska, as well as Kansas City, Kansas, plus she’s offering free travel fees all over the US, just for you guys. That makes Whitney, totally officially, the only APW photographer serving the lower (or middle?) midwest. It also means that I might have just made some readers day’s in Kansas and Nebraska… and everywhere else….
And let’s talk about Whitney Huynh‘s work. Holy moly, y’all. It’s got a mix of whimsy and vivid color, as well as a blend of more editorial images within the moment photojournalism. It’s rare to get all of that in one package, and with Whitney, not only do you get it, but you get it at an affordable rate. Her wedding packages start at $2,500, and portrait sessions start at $350. Plus! She’s offering an all inclusive package to APW readers, with free travel anywhere in the US for $3,500. It includes travel fees, all day coverage, 2 dvd’s of images, copyright release, photo booth, album and $100 donation to charity of couples choice. Yes! I think it’s fair to say that Whitney is way under charging for her talent, and y’all should snap her right up.
But beyond all that, Whitney is already a member of the APW community, and she wants to work with you because, well, she adores you. She told me, “I want to work with APW couples because I feel like I know them already. I’ve been reading this blog since before I even picked up my camera, back in the days when I was planning my own wedding and had no idea what I was doing. This isn’t just a wedding blog…it’s a life blog. APW readers are real, they feel like the best friends I haven’t met yet. Their words and advice helped me plan my wedding and now I want to help capture theirs.” Awwww…. excellent, right? That’s someone you want to be working with.
I also asked Whitney to give me a sum up of her artistic philosophy, which she described as really simple. She said, “Every wedding is beautiful. It doesn’t matter if it takes place in a court house, or in the most expensive venue money can buy. For me, capturing weddings isn’t about only booking weddings because the couple has amazing style with a million tiny details that make amazing photos. It’s about the moments. The in between times when no ones looking. Those are what you are going to want to remember and those are the images I’m going to take. Some of my all time favorite images were simple moments captured through a partially closed door. The kind of intimate moments that I feel so blessed to be able to witness. That is why I do photography. For the love. For the moments that makes your heart melt.”
Oh, and beyond that, Whitney Huynh Photography gave me a list of things she thinks you should know about her.
- I sometimes use Yoga poses to get the best shots.
- I grew up in a rural farming town of less than 2,000 people in Nebraska.
- I love working with my husband at weddings. It’s a nice time to re-live the day we were married..and sneak in a little swing dancing action at the reception.
- I’m LGBT-friendly and am listed as a vendor on So You’re EnGAYged.
- My favorite part of a wedding is the moment the couple sees each other for the first time. I cry every time.
- I make awesome video slide shows of the wedding day, free of charge.
- My Bichon Frise Maverick is my first born. I love him to pieces.
And with that, ladies and gentleman of the south (and the midwest! Whee!) you’ve made a new friend. Go browse Whitney Huynh Photography, and enjoy.
