Happy Friday, y’all! We’ve got some more sponsor love to dole out today, and this next batch is another set of photographers. There is a special place in our heart for our photographer vendors. In case you didn’t know (my sister was very surprised to learn this), about 90% of our real weddings are submitted by photographers. We depend on them to send us the fabulous weddings we feature every week for your inspiration and entertainment, and we pride ourselves on the great relationships we have with them. So without further ado…
Rae and Wesley Leytham, of Rae Leytham Photography, have been long-time friends of SW and we love love love them! Their clients always rave about their experience and we can see why. Based in Florida, they travel world-wide and make friends with everyone they meet. Just spend 5 minutes with the Leytham’s and we know you will fall in love too! Their style is warm, colorful, and as vibrant as the experience they give to their couples! Be sure to check out their blog for more southern wedding goodness.
Friends Matt and Garrett founded GB Photographers based on their mutual love for photography and for documenting the wedding days of people in love. This duo is based in California but loves to travel for destination weddings (hint hint!). Check out their site here and their blog here.
Next we have Christine Tremoulet, whose tagline is “a little unexpected.” Christine is based in Houston but shoots almost exclusively destination weddings. She’s also a whiz at boudoir photography (speaking of which, any of you ladies on the fence should check out the recently posted “shy girl’s guide” over on Weddingbee). Check out her portfolio here, her blog here, and her tweets here. You can also check out her business blog, Big Pink Cookie, here.
Rick Schamberger of East Hill Photo, another long-time friend and supporter of SW, describes his style as a unique blend of photojournalistic and traditional imagery, and we couldn’t agree more. Shooting mainly in the Destin and Pensacola, Florida, areas, Rick is happy to travel, as well. Check out his site here and blog here! The images below were from the first shoot ever done for Southern Weddings almost two years ago- GORGEOUS!!
Next up is Kellan Studios, a husband and wife duo based in Virginia. We are in love with the things these two do with light, as evidenced beautifully by Molly and Chris’ wedding (featured on the SW blog here). Check out Kelly and Ryan’s site here and their hilarious tweets here.
And last, but certainly not least, we have Stacy Reeves. Stacy is such a kind, fun soul, and we know she would do a fabulous job documenting your day in her signature “vintage modern” style (sounds like a contradiction, but is totally fitting!). She’s based in Dallas. Check out her site here, her blog here, and her tweets here. Love these, Stacy!
Again, a huge, warm, SW thank you from all of us here in the office. We know we say this a lot, but it definitely bears repeating: we couldn’t do what we do without these lovely friends, and even more than that, we really believe in their work and want to share it with you. We hope you’ll take a moment to visit their sites and send them a little SW love!
