Wedding Vendor Recommendations

Thank you so much for choosing me to be your wedding photographer! I’m so looking forward to capturing the wonderful moments and personality of your celebration. I do my best to help the day run as smoothly as possible, and hopefully every other vendor you hire will be doing the same.

These are some of my favorite wedding professionals that I’ve either worked with before or bonded over a similar approach to weddings and our clients. Some vendors, such as bakers or florists, I rarely interact with but love their work. With others, like caterers, coordinators, and DJs, I get to see them in action and we work closely together throughout the day. However, I don’t usually have information on vendors’ current prices and availability, so please contact them directly to find out if they’re a good fit for your wedding.
