As wedding planners, we have the privilege to work some amazing wedding vendors. We'd love for you to get to know some of them better so we're starting a fun post on occasional Fridays to share them with you. Enjoy!
Vendor name/company: Sil Azevedo Photography
Services offered: Weddings and fine portrait photography
How did you get started in the wedding industry and when? I (Sil) have been shooting since I was seven. Adriana and I started Sil Azevedo Photography in 1999 with a vision to create images that are unique and that truly reflect the couple’s personalities.
What sets you apart from other vendors? We care. To us it is all about getting to know our clients and building a relationship that results in meaningful moments being captured. We invest time in every detail to make sure it is perfect.
What do you do for fun besides weddings? We love independent films, reading biographies and inspirational books. We enjoy working out, tennis, cycling. We also love travelling, getting to know new places and understanding other cultures.
Why do you enjoy working with wedding planners? Because it flows. A professional wedding planner/coordinator makes the day of go smoothly and allows the couple and families to do what is important: enjoy and celebrate.
What is your favorite thing about working w/ a Stardust Celebrations (SDC) planner? Their experience and care ensure that all is taken care of even when people do not realize what happens in the background. They are true professionals who are focused, competent and fun.
Do you have any funny or memorable stories you can share about working with one of our planners? It is always a pleasure to work with SDC planners. Every single wedding we have done together has been literally flawless. And each one had a unique characteristic that fit the couple’s style with a very personal touch. I remember a wedding we did at Union Station in the fall of 2005 where the city fountain was off and somehow Marsha and Jenny were able to contact them and have the fountain and lights turned on just so that the view from the balcony would be perfect. I still don’t know how they did it! By the way, Marsha and Jenny, the groom from that wedding (Ryan) is taking my photo class at the studio and says hi!
What is the best single piece of advice you could give to brides? Work with your wedding planner to create the perfect vision for your day and then let them take care of the details and enjoy the process.
