Finding any kind of wedding vendor is pretty easy nowadays, but finding the right kind of vendor for your specific needs can be a little more difficult. The Knot, Wedding Wire, Zola, and other platforms try to make it simple for couples, like you, to find the right vendor for your needs. However, on those kinds of platforms, the only information you have available to base your decision on is what's visible to you: their reviews, their work, etc. But we're here to say, the invisible matters.

What's the invisible? The way they treat their clients (you), their responsiveness in communication, their flexibility, personality, process & more. We've said it before, in 3 Practical Ways to Make Your Wedding Day Stress-Free and More Fun, the vendors you hire will make or break your day, it’s that simple. Luckily, for you, we've created our list of recommended vendors. All vendors listed below have been vetted by us through criteria that include (but aren't limited to): trust, reliability, communication, quality of work, quality of personality, ability to be flexible & collaborative, process, turnaround time, & more.

So, without further ado, here is our list of preferred vendors for 2023.

Daria M Photography
  • Photography is a big part of my life and who I am as a person. I love it because it helps you see the unseen and unnoticed. It’s something that brings back time and memories so vividly it feels like you could almost touch them. You can smell the flowers that were around on that day and hear your favorite song playing while the photograph was taken. You can taste the lips of your loved one, young and always joyful, even 20 years later.
  • Based on the East Coast
  • Vibe: Moody, artsy, & intimate

Hendricks Photo
  • If our images feel personal and authentic to each couple it’s because they are. Our couples feel free to be nobody but themselves because we know THEM and they know US!  These deeply intimate images are possible because of the connection and organic friendship, if you will, that we form with our couples. Our couples describe us as personable, funny and playful. We approach the day like this because we believe capturing your love shouldn't feel like work and we want you to enjoy every second of your day.
