As mentioned in the post from yesterday, making relationships in this industry are completely indispensable- utterly absolutely necessary.
Today, on this day of love, Valentine's day, I am proud to announce that Panache has chosen my team and I, as the exclusive and honor of being the only photographers they will recommend to their clients. I cannot express how humbling this is to be chosen.
Why does it matter? Many bridal shops and venues, have a wall of business cards where they allow vendors to place their cards hoping you will pick one up. Some bridal shops, may know of these pros but few have actual working relationships with them. I think that they simply do it out of the kindness of their hearts and others because they get tired of being asked. For me, it is not enough to just have a card counter on a wall or table. For me, I strive to help these businesses. Their success or failure can make or break my own business and your ability to find that perfect dress.
Starting today, LAdigitalPhoto, will be their exclusive choice. They won't and have never in the past allowed business cards or flyers to be placed at their locations. Nor have they even made a gesture to suggest a choice they would prefer you to use. Now, they will simply recommend us and we cannot wait to help their clients as we have helped hundred of others from our other partnerships in the industry. There is only one bridal shop left for me to partner with in Pasadena. I am so grateful for being able to display my work and work with them as partners for their success and most of all to be able to live this dream of capturing amazing moments in amazing peoples' lives.
Located in the heart of Pasadena on Green Street within the historical Castle Green complex.

Ask for Erika and let her know I sent you!
Update: Unrelated, we may be booking our first client who has not only chosen Panache as their bridal shop, but also our other partnered venue La Cañada Country Club. Fingers crossed.
