When I was new in the wedding photography world, I purchased ad space in bridal magazines. I spent thousands and thousands of dollars for 4 years on a tiny square of real estate in a fancy bridal magazine. It brought me a few new clients but NOTHING (and I mean NOTHING!) can compare to word-of-mouth referrals. I stopped all paid advertising about 3 years ago when I realized how much more valuable bride-to-bride referrals really are.
Sara is a mutual friend of mine from former 2015 OSS bride, Amanda, and Ashley (bridesmaid for an OSS bride in 2013). I cannot thank these ladies enough for telling Sara about our company as soon as they heard she was engaged. They had worked with us for a solid year leading up to the big day, seen us in action ON the wedding day and seen the speed/efficiency of our process post-wedding. Their word-of-mouth referral means so much more to Old South than any ad space ever could!
Sara and Logan had such a gorgeous June wedding at Trump National. First, is she a dead-ringer for Faith Hill or what??? Talk about gorgeous! I also love how they incorporated her children (flower girl and ring bearer) into the big day and even used their wedding cake as a…..wait for it…..GENDER REVEAL cake for guests!! Yes, the newlyweds are also expecting a baby boy! These two weren’t wasting any time getting their HAPPILY EVER AFTER started!
Beautiful work by Dana’s team as always and we loved being a part of it all. To the new Mr. and Mrs. Bell, we wish you and your growing family all the happiness in the world. Thank you for taking Amanda and Ashley’s words to heart so many months ago and trusting Old South to tell your story. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you both!
