*This is a paid post from an APW Sponsor*
Today I’m thrilled to welcome new APW sponsors for the month of July! I’m extra excited because (drumroll please), for the first time ever, we’re introducing a photographer in Canada! Wheee! Plus we’ve got sassy and sane photographers coming on board in Ohio, New York City, and Los Angeles/Orange County. I could not be more thrilled.
Briana Snyder Photography—Dayton, Ohio. Ok, all of you in the Midwest should be jumping up and down because Briana is not just super talented, she’s one of us (and so excited to be working with you guys). She told me, “I’ve read the site every single day since I got engaged in Aug. 2010. That year I planned a wedding while working and doing grad school full time—and while slowly coming to realize that maybe International and Comparative Politics wasn’t actually what I was passionate about. At the end of that school year and the beginning of our marriage, I decided to go for it, and see if I couldn’t make my career doing what I loved.” And man, if she’s not good at the thing she loves.
Hibou Photo—Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Oh, ladies. Not only is Kandise, super talented and affordable, with a vivid photojournalist eye (no trendy nonsense here), she’s hilarious. Kandise says that, “Hibou Photo happily shoots all relationships. Except cat weddings. Please stop asking.” (Editors note: ask). She says, “APW reminds me that vendors are just as susceptible to the pull of the WIC as wedding undergrads. Every time I start to fall down that rabbit hole of competition APW snaps me out of it. I want to be around fun, smart, creative, sane, happy, REAL people in love. And I want to tell their stories with photographs.” So, oh boy, I think you should let her tell your story.
beIMAGEDPhotography—New York City. Melissa (who is offering 10% off her rates for APW couples) says, “As a photographer, businesswoman, and human being, I want the same things that the APW couples want—I want the experiences, the conversations, and the expectations to be real and genuine. Ultimately, I feel like I already have a connection with A Practical Wedding couples because they are a part of something that I love and value too, and in that way, our real and genuine dialogue has already begun.”
Intuitive Images—Orange County & Los Angeles. Things you should know about Stephanie: when she discovered APW she fell head over heels in love with y’all faster than I’ve ever seen. She emailed me to ask how she could get involved, RIGHT NOW PLEASE, and said, “I am so into your vibe, it’s not even funny. How does one go about becoming a sponsor? Shall I mail you my right arm?” Then it turns out she shoots dancers all the time (yes!) and has friends in common with long time APWer Emily. Oh yeah, and her pictures are amazing.
