*This is a paid post from an APW Sponsor*
Today I’m delighted to re-introduce all of you to Stonehouse Photo, serving Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois (and beyond! APW Midwest, this is your lucky day!). Hannah Stonehouse Hudson has been an APW sponsor for more than two years. She’s believed in APW and Team Practical since the very beginning, and gets the APW message on every single level. She is an excellent lady.
Hannah told me, “I love working with APW couples because they are inventive—both with the actual ceremony and with physical details. Also, their love is more important than the party.” Not only does Hannah really get it, she’s a total doll. She’s kind, funny, enthusiastic, always helpful, and out to help people create the wedding that’s right for them (not the wedding that she thinks you should have). And she’s super supportive (I should know! She’s been a supportive cheerleader of me for years…).
That, and she takes great pictures. I asked Hannah what the Stonehouse Photo philosophy was in a nutshell, and she told me, “Moments trump details always. I would rather take the time to capture fleeting moments than spend my time arranging detail shots.” And that, to me, is exactly it. That’s what wedding photography trends are missing these days, and that’s exactly what you should be paying for: a photographer who can capture the real emotions of the moments you experience on your wedding day…not just fashionable pictures of the stuff.
And speaking of ‘what you should be paying for,’ Stonehouse Photo’s prices are excellent. Her wedding pricing starts at just $1950, and Hannah is offering a $500 print product credit (yum, prints) for any APW reader that books by Aug 1.
Oh, and just in case you guys didn’t love Hannah enough, when I asked her what other projects she was working on, she told me that she was taking lots of doggie rescue photos. Why? Well, “Better photos equal more adoptions.” How’s that for a wedding photographer side project?
So, go midwesterners, go! And have a blast with Stonehouse Photo.
