hibou photo in New Brunswick, Free Travel in Canada & New England!
*This is a paid post from an APW Sponsor*
Today’s a big day for APW because we get to welcome our first ever Canadian sponsor (and the crowd roars!). hibou photo, located in Fredericton, New Brunswick, is offering free travel to all APW couples anywhere in Canada or New England through the end of 2011. So Maine and Boston, you should also take notice.
But Kandise at hibou photoisn’t just any Canadian vendor. She’s one that’s so perfect for APW, both in artistic style and personality, that she couldn’t be a better way for us to jump into Canadian photography waters. Her work is a lovely blend of emotionally honest, strong visual composition, and a beautiful artistic through line.
She specializes in catching people at their most vulnerable and honest and real. Brides with their heads thrown back laughing, grooms giving a tearful toast. Add to that the fact that she’s so excited to work with you guys that it’s off the charts.
Plus hibou photo offers excellent rates. Wedding packages start at just $2,000 (Canadian), and as mentioned, she’s offering free travel to all APW couples in Canada and New England through the end of 2011. She’s also cooked up an “off-menu” super all inclusive package for APW awesomeness: 12 hours of continuous and unlimited coverage; password-protected online gallery for viewing, sharing, ordering; an archival DVD containing all the high-res images with a personal print release; and a 20-page 8×8 leather album*. $3999+tax. So you’re going to want to move on these rates because they won’t last long!
As for why Kandise wants to work with Team Practical, she says, “I want to work with people who think and act like me. Happy, sane, smart (geeky), sassy, grounded, creative people… who love and value photography. What excites me about APW is the thoughtfulness and care and personality that APWers inject into their weddings. They’re not going to do something that means nothing to them for the sake of tradition; they’re not going to want wedding photos that make them look like rockstar douchebags. Real people, real moments, real love, that’s what I will capture. Since the market I live in is very small and traditional, I’m hoping to find those people near me with APW. And since I love to travel, I’m excited at the prospect of meeting these kinds of people throughout Canada, New England, and all over the world!” I’m not even going to comment on the rockstar douchebag comment, because her hilarity speaks for itself.
And, because you should get to know Kandise and hibou photo (because she already knows and loves you), she provided me with this list of facts. It will make you love her more:
99% of the day I’m going to be that fly on the wall, capturing (almost) everything about your wedding as it happens. No direction, no posing.
The other 1% will be painless and fun.
Love is for everyone.
Your wedding photographs are family heirlooms.
I think I’m funny. If you don’t, that could get awkward.
I’m shooting for YOU… I’m on your side.
I blog every session. All of my clients are beautiful and deserving of having their stories told. (My wedding blog posts are kind of epic.)
Simple and straightforward. Always.
My favourite feedback from clients is when they say things like “is that really me?” or that I captured the FEEL of their wedding.
And with that, ladies and gentleman, what are you waiting for? New Brunswick, all of Canada, Maine, Boston, the rest of New England? Hop on over to Hibou Photo’s website, browse, play, and then make some beautiful music together. Y’all are going to have piles of fun, I can just tell.
We don’t consider ourselves “Rules Girls.” We know that there is no such thing as the perfect wedding, the perfect partner, or the perfect family. But the only way to liberate ourselves from “the rules” (or the WIC, or just society’s pressures at large) is to come up with better ones. So in February, we’re not just breaking the rules; we’re forsaking some altogether and making new ones too.
