WHAT PROFESSIONALS ARE SAYING:

Hylah of H. WHITE SPECIAL EVENTS“I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Damaris Mia on a few photo shoots but have also had some of my work published on her blog.  She is a breath of fresh air and unlike any other blogger I know.  She puts so much time and energy into connecting with her vendors and building a relationship with each vendor.   She is also a strong supporting in introducing other vendors to each other.  She is careful not to play favorites but has created a place for vendors to connect and collaborate.  When you advertise with SCB you are getting so much more than just an ad space on a blog - you are building relationships and connecting with others in your field.”

Amy of ALL IN THE DETAIL DESIGN"I was referred by Petals & Stones and knew immediately that SCB was going to be a perfect fit for my business. Although, being brand new in the industry I wasn't sure that SCB would feel the same way about me. I am so thankful and grateful SCB and editor, Damaris, welcomed me into the SCB family. Since then I have had the pleasure of getting to know Damaris and other SCB vendors. I had the opportunity to collaborate on a photoshoot for SCB and it was an outstanding experience. There are so many wonderful preferred vendors with such talent and passion. The features that SCB select are  so inspirational and  educational for any bride. SCB editor, Damaris' inner beauty shines bright. She is genuine, kind and humble. I enjoy learning from her, getting to know her and am thankful for the opportunities she has given me."

Sarah of SARAH SOTRO PHOTOGRAPHY“Over all, I just want to acknowledge that being a preferred vendor on SCB and working on the launch shoot has really opened doors for my business.  I've been doing this four years now, and up to this point have felt stuck and in limbo.  I still have so much to learn, but am also confident in my skill and eye as a photographer.  Despite that, I was still discouraged because the bookings I did get were based on my "cheapness" and not because clients loved my images. I understand weddings are expensive, but it is still frustrating when you get the gig because a bride and groom just want the lowest price.  Since working with SCB and being featured on the site I've received inquiries from couples who actually love and appreciate my work.  It's a pretty awesome feeling. I've had four inquiries from SCB, 3 have been booked (I'm still conversing/meeting with the 4th). It's really helped to get my name out there in a flooded market, and add credibility to my business.   SCB helps to direct traffic to my site from clients who actually want to invest in their wedding, and who are just as passionate about their photos as I am. 


"Pay for 2016, get the rest of 2015 free" promo applies only to brand new members. Cannot already be a member of Southern California Bride.
