On Sunday, we attended what was one of biggest bridal shows Sioux Falls has seen. Despite the snow, the parking lot and the streets surrounding the Ramkota Exhibit hall were full. Inside, the brides and their entourages searched the aisles to find their vendor of choice.
The Black Tie Bridal Showcase was a success.
Now you may think that photographers go to bridal shows to compete with each other. While we all like the opportunity to offer our services to brides, we all like to take a little time to kick back and talk shop. The world of wedding photography is a very small one. Those who have been in business a few years develop friendships and many of us try to refer to brides when we are already booked for a date. Those relationships help all of us raise the quality of wedding photography across the board.
Pictured in front of our booth is our daughter Rachel, handing out chocolate candy. You can see the back of Dacey’s head. He was handing out brochures.
