Shawnee C Photography
Richmond, Virginia & Worldwide
"I'm passionate about photographing kind-hearted folks who are unapologetically themselves. I'm a queer feminist, love a good audiobook (hello Harry Potter!), and will always enthusiastically say YES to a costume party. My favorite folks to work with believe in giving back to their communities, that #BlackLivesMatter, that climate change is you know...real, and choose to embrace their own unique quirks and talents."

Jacqueline Connor Photography
Buffalo and Rochester, New York & Available for Travel
"As it is in my own life, my business has always been inclusive. I am forever grateful for the experiences I have been welcomed into, and will always honor that privilege. Every step of the process from original inquiry response, to contracts, to the wedding day itself, assumes nothing about gender, race, creed, or sexual identity. All of the businesses and vendors that I partner with and recommend hold the same values of equality and service. From the engagement to a lifetime to portraits I am dedicated to running a fully-inclusive and socially conscious business."
Carly Romeo & Co.
Richmond, Viginia & Worldwide
"Hi I'm Carly and I'm fucking passionate about a ton of things. Among them: feminism, photography, fairness (Libra alert), and riding my bike. I come from a feminist academic, activist, and professional background (past gigs have included working at Planned Parenthood and as Gloria Steinem's personal assistant) and am always looking to work with people who might have mixed feelings about the whole 'wedding' thing."
New York City
"You want a wedding album filled with photos that show you, and your relationship, in a genuine light. You’re creating a whole new family on your wedding day, that’s HUGE, and you know it! I mix my fine art background with photojournalism to create vibrant, unposed portraits and catch candid moments, all while bringing a fun, calming vibe to your wedding day."
New York City & Worldwide
"I am a Queens-based photographer living in Astoria, NY. I have been photographing weddings for nine years and specialize in documentary photography. My goal when photographing weddings is to capture the story of the day. I’m just as interested in showcasing the small subtle moments and quirky personal details, as I am with documenting the big showstoppers."
Rachelle Rawlings Photography
Napa, Sonoma, San Francisco, Oakland, greater Bay Area
"I believe that being a photographer is about more than taking photos – it’s about people. I love getting to know you, helping you feel comfortable and excited about being photographed, and creating something beautiful and meaningful together. My approach to photographing weddings, couples and families is laid back and simple. I strive to capture you and your love as it really is!"
Meera Graham Photography
"It's my missions to love the sh*t out of you, to love every part of your journey (the parts filled with joy AND the hard parts), to help you lean in to the things that make meaning for you...and to make photos that feel like something."
Minneapolis, Minnesota & The Midwest
"I invite you to do your wedding your way, elope in the greater north, have a punk show with all your friends, party with an entire village. Weddings aren’t meant to be forced into a box, and neither are your photos. Regardless the situation, I will always bring my best, and strive to be the best possible person I can be. To never stop innovating, educating, and to always stand up for others. To create images with intention and heart."
Mae B Films
New York City
"I'm a Black woman, who's a wedding filmmaker. This industry is predominantly cis gendered white males and I'm disrupting the wedding industry by unapologetically adding my voice into the mix! Along with my couples, we collaborate together to capture films that really reflect their journey instead of a template that looks like every other wedding video on the web."
Becca Dilley Photography
Minneapolis and greater Minnesota, Wisconsin, Midwest
"I've created networking groups, I've run events to connect local couples with content-based wedding information, I've put together styled shoots and fake weddings and independent wedding fairs. And after all of that, the thing that actually disrupts the industry the most is totally ignoring it and focusing on the great couples I work with and how I can make their wedding day go easier, be more joyful, and be well documented so that they are free to enjoy it."
Marble Rye Photography
Oakland & Los Angeles
"I believe we are put on this earth to experience love — platonic, familial, romantic. I live in a sweet little apartment in oakland, california, with my favorite human (slash husband), Charlie. One day we'll get ourselves a dog. I got hooked on photography when i was 22. I took a Polaroid in Chennai, India of my rickshaw driver Sami, and his girlfriend. She held the photo to her heart and asked if she could keep it. Quickly, a swarm of children surrounded us — each shouting for their turn."

Oakland CA, Bay Area, Napa & Traveling
"I'm an artist first and a wedding photographer second, I am not in the industry for the money but rather for the passion I have for true love. I'm always pushing my clients to do what they really want. You will never catch me telling someone they 'have' to do something because its a wedding standard, instead I tell my clients that they should do what makes them happy and stress free."
