From Joel Serrato...

"To say Style Me Pretty has helped elevate my business and brand is a complete understatement. The brand is curated with the best in the industry, seeing Style Me Pretty Archive my client’s weddings in the most elegant posts and features truly makes them the vault and staple In the wedding industry. Simply put, there is no better online wedding site I’d rather be associated with as it’s my “go to” first for exposure - get featured on Style Me Pretty or in their esteemed LBB and see your beautiful work live on the internet for a capacity and reach untold!”

From Jen Huang...

"I am so lucky to have been part of the SMP family throughout the last ten years. One of the first weddings I ever photographed was published on Style Me Pretty, and now eleven years later, it is still my favorite wedding blog. Not only is SMP beautifully designed, Abby and her team curate their editorial features with a strong, consistent aesthetic so that my work always reaches the perfect bride. You can't imagine how important this is for any wedding photographer - reaching the right client makes your initial connection to them stronger, and builds a solid foundation of trust - this helps you create your best work possible and begin a cycle of success.

Not only is SMP a community for like-minded vendors and artists, my brides also feel like they are part of SMP and are overjoyed when their weddings are published. I have so much to thank SMP for, not only do I attribute my rapid rise and continued growth to them, I am also so grateful for having Abby as a mentor and friend through the years. SMP has a big heart, and that is what makes it so special, and so lasting. "

 

From Keri Walter of Always Yours Events

"When I opened Always Yours Events several years ago, Style Me Pretty was where I dreamed of seeing my work and celebrations featured. With such beautiful imagery coupled with eloquent articles telling the stories of these extraordinary weddings, SMP was (and continues to be) the ultimate source of inspiration for couples who not only loved all things pretty but also were in search of the very same thing that AYE brand had to offer— romantic, ethereal and awe-inspiring weddings and celebrations that leave a gorgeous lasting impression.

Within two years I became a member of the Little Black Book, which I can honestly say helped catapult my brand. LBB quickly became an entrusted channel connecting Always Yours Events with so many incredible ideal clients each and every year. And with the SMP team's dedication to sharing their vendors’ work and talents through multiple social media channels, AYE’s work not only gained exposure on the blog, but also through Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest (with some posts even going viral). LBB has been the one and only vendor guide I’ve invested in that has created growth for my brand, and has connected true, qualified leads based on their love for AYE's aesthetic, style and brand mission. Without a doubt the relationship fostered with SMP has been pivotal for my business, and joining LBB years ago has been one of the greatest decisions and investments I’ve made in my career. "

 

From Marlene and John Koman of Koman Photography...

"We thoroughly love being a part of Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book. We’ve been members since 2014 and we are so grateful to have had our work featured in Style Me Pretty over 50 times. Being accepted into such a great family of artists has been one of the highlights of our careers.

First, and foremost, it’s a true honor to be a part of a group of such talented people who’ve been in the business for many years and who are world renown. We are very thankful to Style Me Pretty for creating a platform for our industry where we can be united and inspired to better our work and grow our business.

Being an LBB member has also helped us reach our dream bride- the type of bride who puts a lot of love into each detail of her wedding day and who appreciates their photographer’s vision and creativity. It’s no wonder we’ve had brides inform us upon their first inquiry that they would like their wedding featured in Style Me Pretty. It was apparent from the start that this platform was truly set up to help members succeed and expand their reach."

 

From Judy Pak of Judy Pak Designs

“Being part of the dynamic and talented Style Me Pretty community has been instrumental to the growth of my studio. My first features with SMP still remains a memorable time in my professional career. It provided me with the opportunity to work with wonderful brides and collaborate with new industry partners. The support from the LBB team was so encouraging and helpful...it instilled a strong sense of confidence as I grew my own capabilities. I've always felt that SMP readers appreciate the craftsmanship in our studio's work, which is invaluable. “
