I am elated to announce I have joined Andrew Bryant Photography as an associate photographer! Andrew is an incredible photographer and while he is based here in Cary, he is nationally known and is available for weddings all over the world. Some of you knew this because I couldn’t hold in the excitement and let it slip already, but now it is official! And to think that I might not have ever met him!
Here’s the story. While Satomi and I were looking for our own wedding vendors, after a day of looking around, we decided to go to “one more place.” That place turned out to be Paperwhites Press. The wonderful people at Paperwhites Press (who ended up doing our beautiful invitations–which are currently the opening image on their homepage), suggested that I get in touch with Andrew Bryant Photography since I had not found a photographer yet. Andrew and I hit it off immediately and I was overwhelmed with his kindness and support of my new photography company that I had started after returning from teaching English in Japan in September of 2008.
After our first meeting, I told Satomi that I wanted to somehow work with Andrew, but at the time I was thinking small, like second shooting for him from time to time. When he asked me to be an associate I was so honored and surprised that I was speechless and later worried that maybe he thought I didn’t say much because I was trying to play it cool! To be honest, I am still not exactly sure how I convinced Andrew Bryant Photography to bring me on as an associate, but I am thrilled, thankful and feel so blessed that I have received this wonderful opportunity to show and improve my photographic talent! Thank you Andrew!
