A few months ago, we introduced you guys to Emily Alt Photography, the woman with a vintage Airstream and an idea. It turns out (no surprise here), y’all were just as excited about Emily and her husband Ian and their wacky (read: awesome) idea to travel the country photographing weddings in their vintage RV as we were, and you have been booking them like crazy for your weddings since, from big celebrations to small and everywhere in between.
In just a few months, Emily and Ian will be packing up their airstream and heading out on their country-wide tour (locations featured above), and they want to photograph you getting married as part of the adventure. But before they hit the road, Emily and Ian wanted to let you know that when they aren’t traveling in the Airstream, Emily Alt Photography will be taking up permanent residence in Michigan, and will be proud to represent APW in and around the Great Lakes. (Did I just hear a collective squeal from somewhere near Lake Michigan? I think I did.) To top it all off, for weddings outside of Michigan that aren’t part of the rolling elopements special, Emily Alt Photography has also decided to eliminate travel charges for all weddings in the continental US. Which means that wherever you are, and whatever kind of wedding you’re having, Emily Alt Photography is your gal.
And it’s a damn lucky thing too, because Emily Alt is the real deal, folks. Really, it’s Emily’s work behind the camera that makes all of this news of relocating and free travel so exciting for you guys. Emily jokes on her About Emily page that she very nearly called her business, “Damn Good Photos.” The truth is, that’s exactly what Emily Alt Photography offers: damn good photos from someone used to teach The Great Gatsby as a crime novel, and who gets you. And while Emily is every bit as talented at color photography, I find her black and white images to be so gripping that I can’t take my eyes away from them. I mean, these are the kinds of images that you frame and hang on your wall for years and years until you’re old and grey.
You know there’s nothing APW loves more than a good success story, and Emily Alt Photography has been one of this year’s most exciting. Emily says, “Working with APW readers has been…beyond the best. All my APW couples are sweet, thoughtful, considerate, creative, unique, and just plain fun. I haven’t had one single experience with an APW couple that didn’t end with me thinking ‘Oooh, I want to be friends!’ Having so many APW readers get in touch with me has been a huge honor—I feel so excited and also so humbled that so many APWers want to work with me!” With that in mind, Emily Alt Photography is offering 10% off to APW couples getting married in 2014 who mention this post and 15% off for anyone who books a remaining 2013 date (not applicable to the Airstream Rolling Elopements). With prices starting at $2,100 for basic coverage, I think it’s fair to say that’s a steal.
So what are you waiting for? Emily Alt Photography has left the door wide open for you to line up this talented artist at your wedding anywhere in the continental US, whether it’s a tiny elopement in the middle of nowhere she can travel to in her Airstream, or a big wedding on the banks of Lake Michigan. Emily Alt Photography currently has plans to visit the following cities between October of this year and March of next, so if you think you might fall somewhere in between, give Emily a ring and make that magic happen:
- Asheville, NC
- Tyler, TX
- Denver, CO
- Charleston, SC
- Beaufort, SC
- Quad Cities, IA
- Santa Fe, NM
- Lake Tahoe, CA
