I've been able to successfully establish relationships with wedding vendors in the Cincinnati area, and Tampa Bay area.  While I always refer individuals with the same mindset and world class product approach. I've always had the opportunity to make individual promos with some.  I think as a wedding community it's nice to stick together with those who have the same work ethic and extreme dedication to their clients and their craft.

I'd like everyone to meet Marilyn.  She is in my opinion the best wedding photographer in the Tampa area.  I've had the opportunity to work with her and have gotten to know here pretty well.  I can hear her saying right now "Brett, change that awful photo of me on the thumbnail" I wont... because it makes me laugh.  Together we create realistic timelines. know how to rock any lighting situation and have way too many backup plans in case something crazy happens the wedding day.  We are also the most published wedding duo in Tampa.  I tell her she learned everything from me, so if you happen to book the two of us, please give her a hard time and let her know Brett taught her everything she knows.  To see more of Marilyn check out her website.

I can't say enough good things about Taylor over at Flawless Hair and Makeup LLC (cincinnati).  What a lot of people don't realize is having a solid makeup artist will keep the timeline on point, and give your video tons and tons of eye candy and "wow" shots.  There is nothing worse than brides being setup in awful light for video... not everyone has the trained eye to make sure their brides will look flawless on camera..and this company understands that.  Check out their video below and you'll see what I mean!  I'd also like to thank The Madison Event Center in Covington for letting us use their room and Fabulous Bridal for letting us play with some of the dresses!

Blush Bridal

BLUSH BRIDAL - Reading Bridal District’s newest shop. Something Romantic. Something Unique. With exclusive designers straight from the runway. Something designed for the sophisticated bride who wants a couture shopping experience in a comfortable boutique. This was such a unique experience for me, being on the other side of the wedding scene I don’t see any of this sort of thing. Several rooms filled with a million dresses, different looks and themes for brides to pick from. Enjoy this snippet from Blush Bridal.
