These couples thought affordable wedding photography was impossible… and then they met Milestone Images #Sponsors: Photographers#new york#new york city#wedding photographer Posted Aug 12 2016 Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin This business paid a fee to be listed on Offbeat Bride because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads. Every single one of these couples you're about to see had special circumstances where professional photography wasn’t in the cards without something amazing happening. They simply thought affordable wedding photography wasn't going to happen. And yet… they ended up with these fantastic professional wedding photos from our longtime sponsor Angie Gaul from Milestone Images. This includes the bride pictured above, who co-founded an amazing not-for-profit on Long Island, that serves survivors of abuse. Then that couple became the charity sponsor for a 10,000-person Color Run. And they asked Angie to shoot that event, too! Or, in other "incredible post-wedding photo shoot" news: Angie recently got to be there for one of her 2011 brides while she gave birth! From rocking out on the dance floor at an amazing Irish-Filipino wedding, to rocking an amazing Irish-Filipina baby girl in her arms… Angie really puts the "milestones" in Milestone Images. So what do the new mama bride and the Empowerment Collaborative-forming bride have in common with these two middle-aged women who were closeted for the first 15 years of their relationship before FINALLY getting to celebrate their love openly as they legally and joyfully wed? And what do they have in common with an interfaith Hindu-Muslim couple’s homespun wedding with a campfire? And what do THEY have in common with the most stylish goth wedding to hit Brooklyn, possibly ever? Or this Offbeat lite wedding in New Jersey? Or this winter wedding in Central Park? Or this rustic wedding with 20 guests on the bride’s family farm in Virginia? Milestone Images is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! For all of them, Angie was able to do something that made professional wedding photography a reality for their wedding and their budget. Some of them got in touch originally and said, “We love you. You’re the only photographer we want, but we can only spend this amount.” Or, “We are going to have friends take lots of photos with their phones, but could you maybe just shoot for an hour because that’s all we can afford?” And Angie found herself saying, “How can I make this work for you? How can I help you resolve the deal-breakers?” For a handful of lucky couples who have an amazing love story, who truly respect what wedding photographers do, and want this kind of candid, artistic, and loving photography for themselves, Angie want to work with you, too. Offbeat Discount: Offbeat Bride readers ALWAYS get a 10% discount from Milestone Images.
