You: Want artistic, not-quite-traditional wedding photos that fall somewhere between art and documentary.
Your Family: Wants wedding photos they can frame, that aren’t too “out there.”
You: Want to have your cake and eat it too.
Tulle & Grace: Will make everyone happy.
I can practically hear you now: you’re having a cool, modern wedding in Atlanta (or elsewhere in the South). You’re super excited to be marrying your partner. You want wedding photos that are fun, and colorful, and maybe even a little stylish. But your family has kinda sorta traditional expectations about what wedding photography looks like, and frankly, you want to make them happy too. So what do you do? Do you:
A. Research until you’ve convinced yourself that you have no options, and proceed to have an ongoing panic attack.
B. Hire Whitney Huynh of Tulle & Grace Photography, because she’s your people.
(Hint: the answer is B.)
It’s really rare to find someone who can do both traditional and modern at the same time. But Tulle & Grace plays to both sides without even breaking a sweat. Which means you won’t have to explain to your family that you’re hiring someone who makes photos like this:
Because you’ll just send them the shot from five seconds later that looks like this:
None of this should surprise you, though, because Whitney is an APWer from way, way back who started her business right here. And her philosophy? It’s yours too:
At times I get a little frustrated with the wedding industry. It seems to me that we have become obsessed with the details of the day and forget entirely about the reason why all of those pretty little details are there. Not that I don’t love a pretty detail, because I do! So much! But, what does it mean, really, without the marriage part? You and your partner fell in love, and you are sharing a life together. You’ve had a thousand happy times and other times that were really difficult, but you’ve made it through. I’ve been married for five years now and marriage is hard, but it’s so, so worth it. I am not there to just photograph the pretty details in hopes of getting you published in a magazine. I want to capture the tears running down your faces when you see each other for the first time. I want the images of the flower girl forgetting to throw the petals and then dumping them all at the end of the aisle while everyone laughs. I want the proud look on your parents faces as you dance for the first time as a married couple. These are the moments I want to share, and my promise to you is that I will photograph these moments beautifully for you. I will make these moments in time art pieces that you can hang on your wall. The day that becomes unimportant to me will be the day I find a new job.
All of which you can plainly see in the photo below:
And because Whitney’s been around these parts since forever and LOVES you guys, she’s paying it forward with an APW-only package for Southern APW readers. We’re talking $2,500 for two photographers, all-day coverage, an engagement session, and a gallery of high-resolution images that you can download, share on social media, and order prints from. (Not planning a weekend wedding? Friday weddings are $1,500 and courthouse elopements are just $800.)
Whitney’s got the travel bug, which means national and international weddings are a whole other ball game:
Travel is the greatest gift that I ever discovered, besides photography and God’s grace. It has taught me how to be a loving and kind person to all people. For our Nationwide APW readers we would be honored to offer you free travel, one photographer, all-day coverage, and a PASS Gallery of high-resolution images for $3200. I will personally fly myself out to wherever your wedding is a few days before, be there all day the day of, and you don’t have to worry about a thing.
For our International APW weddings, come on, let’s do this! Buy me a Delta ticket (I’m collecting the miles folks!) and book me a room! The rest is free of charge. We will make some magic together from a place far, far away. You will get all-day coverage the day of your wedding, a separate shoot at a location of your choice (because I mean really, we flew all the way here, let’s make this epic), and a PASS Gallery of all your images in high resolution! It’s a win-win!
That’s a whole lot of information to absorb, so to help you out, Tulle & Grace have put together this killer guide that covers everything from pricing to what to wear to your engagement session, to sample timelines for the wedding day.
When it comes to wedding photography, lots of our readers, particularly in the South, want to work with a photographer who equal parts gets you and your values, respects your grandma, and produces work that feels authentic. Whitney Huynh of Tulle & Grace Photography is your person. Your mom and your grandma will be so thrilled to have classic pictures to hang on the wall, and you’ll just quietly frame all those beautiful art photos. And maybe send some of them to us while you’re at it?
