They say that things that sound too good to be true, usually are. But this is Offbeat Bride, where we do away with “the usual.” In the case of our sponsor Justine Johnson, her deals are just as good as they sound… You either have the chance to have a completely free, completely amazing wedding photographer, just for being your completely awesome selves. Just for being you doing “you.”
Here’s how you can get Justine to shoot your wedding for either free, or deeply discounted…
Wedding photography real talk: The more you photograph weddings, the more talented you become. And the more you talented you become, the more you charge for your super-awesome-above-the-norm services. Which is great — Yay kicking ass at your craft! BUT the more you charge… the less you shoot certain kinds of lower-budget offbeat weddings.
That’s why Karina Picache of OhKarina Photography. has a master plan that involves THREE special discounts for Offbeat Bride readers. One involves Karina’s own photography wishlist…
A local waterworks museum is a pretty rad venue for a LEGO-themed wedding like this. This pair loves engineering, color, and having a grand time building with LEGO. They may have been concerned that their guests wouldn’t jive with the theme, but boy were those fears unfounded. You’ll want to see how they incorporated LEGO into their cake, their ceremony, and even their shoes. Just watch out for the bride’s grandma… she’s feisty!
You might remember LA-based Evangeline Lane from her serendipitous experience getting into photography, this most seriously delightful Independence Day wedding, or maybe even met her at the San Francisco Lovesick Expo. Let’s talk about what makes Evangeline tick and why she just might be your saving grace in catching all the amazing details at your wedding. And of course, there’s a special package waiting just for readers of Offbeat Bride.
As you may have heard, the Lovesick Expo is embarking on a nationwide tour alongside our professional besties at Offbeat Bride. Our goal has always been to bring the most creative couples and wedding vendors together under one roof to show the best, most creative wedding talent in each city — beyond the Google searches and reality TV shows. Since you may be on the venue hunt, and we’ve already done the legwork by scouring New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, and Denver, we thought we’d put together this little profile of six of the best venues in the nation!
These ladies successfully merged traditional and offbeat with their lovely white dresses, ice cream bar instead of a cake, mixed-gender (and fashion) wedding party, and eerily similar vows that they didn’t even plan out together! Oh, and wait until you see the adorable twist on the “choose a seat, not a side” sign!
