Faves

Finding the right vendors in a jungle of vendors isn’t always easy, I know that for sure. I’ve been there too. So I’ve gathered some absolutely amazing vendors I’ve come across at weddings I’ve photographed. All of these people create astounding work and at the same time they’re pretty rad people too. Which never ever hurts. The world needs more rad people!
