Get to Know a Wedding Photographer in Madison, GA: Brandy Angel Photography (7)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Brandy of Brandy Angel Photography based in Madison, GA! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company?

I have always loved photography. I mean LOVED it. When I was 10 years old, I would dress up my nieces and nephews (who were closer in age to me than my siblings), throw up a backdrop and take pictures. There was nothing more fun than playing photographer. I can fondly recall every camera I have ever received and can sit and look over photographs for hours on end. My dream was to grow up and be a national geographic photographer.

I ended up being a surgical technologist for 10 years and loved every minute of it. Helping people in their time of need was a wonderful thing for me. However, when I had my daughters I stayed home and rekindled my deep love for photography. I bought my first digital camera and with my friends, taught myself how to use it. From that, Brandy Angel Photography has evolved. Not only have I been able to capture incredible moments for brides and grooms but also continue to help people in their time of need with my own non profit origination, Be the Change, Brandy Angel Foundation. I could not be more blessed and happier with where I am today.

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Kelvin of Kelvin Young Photography based in Toronto, ON! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

Hello, my name is Kelvin Young. I started Kelvin Young Photography Inc 8.5 years ago back in 2006 when I was 17 years old. I was one year away from graduating high school and fell in love with photography! I started photographing small events and shows, and then began accepting some paid work. Most wedding photographers stick with wedding and event photography, but throughout the years, I’ve had the privilege and opportunity to branch out into all sorts of photography including food, performance/show, commercial, corporate, architecture and documentary photography. That keeps me happily busy throughout the year, even when wedding season comes to almost a complete stop during the winter months of December to April in Toronto.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

Katie Snyder Photography started (unofficially) in 2003 when I first started studying photography in college. What I thought would be a fun hobby soon became the focus of my life and I began putting all of my entrepreneurial spirit into it. In 2006, my husband, Dan, and I moved to Atlanta, GA and I began to pursue it as my full time career. For many years, the company was ran by just the two of us (me as photographer and Dan as photo editor), but in 2012, we began expanding in order to better accommodate our clients. We now have 4 main photographers, office help, and a slew of videographers and second photographers that we call upon regularly. We split our time between Atlanta and destination weddings around the world! I also teach a variety of workshops for upcoming photographers as well as hobbyists.

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer in Wilmington, NC: Tom Sapp Photography (1)

Today’s interview is with one of our Certified Lovely wedding photographers, Tom of Tom Sapp Photography based in Wilmington, NC! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

I live in a tourist destination location expected to double in population in the next year. It slacked off for a few years while people were building back their spending money for that celebratory beach vacation. I didn’t mind. To me it just meant I could fish more. The population increase makes for a positive outlook in terms of continuing to live the lifestyle I love, the only one I have known since being under my parents wing.

I’ve been in business since 02 for myself after photo school and assisting for a few years. I haven’t really had to do much to stay in business since I moved back to my home area in 2004. For a long time I thought the force was strong in me, guiding me. I love sci-fi movies, fishing for big game fish right off the beach where I live. I love going around in my boat at night with bright lights looking down to find beautiful live conque, clams, scallops and giant flounder.

Everywhere I go around globe I see beauty. This area, eastern NC, is a part of who l am on the inside. Here I don’t just see beauty I feel it everywhere, all around me. This definitely helps with staying positive and making people happy for a living.
