featured on Style Me Pretty's new Napa vendor listings!

I'm SO happy to announce that I've been chosen as one of 3 wedding photographers in the Sonoma/ Napa Wine Country area (and there are a LOT, believe me) for Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book.

Style Me Pretty is one of my favorite blogs to look at. If you're looking for color, design, vendor or details ideas for your wedding, they are definitely the best place I can think of for ideas and photography. The branding for SMP is very elegant, artistic, beautiful yet simple. Their focus is on classic, non-trendy vendors and designs, which I love.

They are also very select, which is why it is such an honor to be chosen as one of only three photographers per area!

You can see my listing here. I'm the only one for now, soon to be joined by the fabulous Lisa and James and by Adeline and Grace. Fantastic company, and just amazingly sweet and kind people.




From the Little Black Book's FAQ:

"How do you choose the vendors for your Little Black Book?

The process to become a Little Black Book member is actually quite extensive. Each vendor is carefully selected by Abby based on a series of criteria...

First, they need to have been recommended by an SMP reader, a recent bride or an industry professional. We don't simply look for a referral but rather for a passionate reason as to why a particular vendor deserves to be in the book... Whatever the connection, it must be strong and based on a real knowledge of the vendor's work.

... We really pride ourselves on being able to separate good design from great design. The vendors that we have chosen are setting trends, they are looking for new ways to approach traditional design, they are creative, passionate and most of all, talented.

And finally, after a long discussion with the vendor, we must feel confident that they are honest, have a high level of integrity and are truly dedicated to their craft. At the end of the day, this is what really matters...

Why are there only three vendors per category, when there are so many more great vendors in any given city?

There are so many sites out there that list all of the vendors in a particular city which is often really overwhelming! We wanted to give you our favorites...not based on size, or advertising dollars...but based on reputation and quality."
