Weddings are such a special time, but you have to get all of the ingredients right. It takes a lot to put together a great wedding! There is the flowers, the decor, the food, the venue, the dresses. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. We’ve been in touch with lots of really cool wedding influencers because they absolutely love our string lights so we decided to compile a list of Top Wedding Photographers and Bloggers. Enjoy!

Tomiko Harvey from Passports & Grub
About: Hi, I’m Tomiko, an African American Travel Blogger, wannabe nomadic traveler and praying for my own travel show someday but until then a Tennessee based Digital Marketer and Content Creator in this digital world. I am also a wife, mom, daughter plus I have a day job that allows me to have soap, water, electricity, and let us not forget food. My family loves adventures of any kind whether it’s traveling to the Amalfi Coast or exploring our own backyard we make sure we seek out adventure and adventure in every destination.I am a self-confessed travel junkie and I love to slowly immerse myself in other cultures by spending time with locals, eating where they eat or simply just trying to understand someone else’s point of view. As an African American Travel Blogger, it is important that black travelers are represented in the travel industry. Do I have a bucket list? Yes, I do but travel for me is not about just ticking off an item and quickly moving on to the next destination – I don’t find this kind of travel fulfilling. I like to travel slow, to experience different cultures and to learn from them and this will help me become not only the best African American Travel Blogger but the absolute Best Travel blogger out there and kick ass creating stories and content for my clients!

Sam from Sam Hurd Photography
About: My style is distinct, a result of both my unrelenting commitment to my craft and complete trust from clients who commission me. You’re not going to read about any awards, badges, or “top 10 lists” because what matters is you’re in love with the work that you see and are ready to trust me entirely to do what I do. This trust drives me to find the perfect balance between creative experimentation and honest documentation. I mostly showcase portraits; my direction and vision come through strongest in these shots. Of course, weddings are about more than just pictures of yourselves, and I’m happy to share full galleries with you upon inquiry. I hope you like my style. It isn’t for everybody, but if you feel it is I hope to talk to you soon.
