2018 Vendor Shout Outs

November 29th, 2018 |

It’s that time of year again! I’ve wrapped up another incredible wedding season—a year of beautiful events from Charleston to Annapolis. I have loved sharing each of my couples’ gorgeous weddings on my blog throughout the year, and I love expressing gratitude to my clients for bringing me along as their Charleston or Annapolis wedding photographer.

But I can’t let the year end without expressing gratitude for some of the other key players in my weddings. It’s a fact; I couldn’t do my job without my fellow wedding vendors. So much of my artistry and inspiration comes from the beauty that is placed in font of me on a wedding day. And while my couples are responsible for designing their events and picking their vendors, it’s the vendors themselves who make the magic happen!

So here’s a resounding thank you to all of the incredible vendors who I’ve been lucky enough to work with this year!

I love these people so much that I wrote a whole post dedicated to them earlier this year. These planners have been instrumental in keeping wedding days running smoothly and such a joy to work with:
