As a photographer, I have to invest in advertising. There's no way around it. I need clients and I need weddings on the books! The best way to do that by far is to have amazing images... and stay engaging on social media and my blog. Hence my choosing to participate in the Big Fake Wedding: a showcase, a vow renewal and a styled shoot all rolled together in one package! Not only did I obtain an insane amount of images for my portfolio but I also got to know a ton of new local vendors as well... and the more I have become immersed in the Carolina wedding scene; the more I adore my counterparts in the industry. We truly work hard to better ourselves, our business, strengthen relationships and inspire each other and our clients. In the end; it's the CLIENT (the bride) who benefits. And when they're happy--we're happy!
Color inspiration was based on rich navy, muted plum, forest green and blush. I absolutely loved working with this amazing team of vendors. Special thanks to TBFW team for keeping us afloat!
