Vendors We Love: Arden Photography

This "Vendors We Love" post is a really special one to Ivory & White! Our bridal boutique is next to the doors of Arden Photography and we are so blessed to be located near this talented photographer and friend! Scroll down to read about how she got started and how she spends her time off!


What made you decide to pursue photography?

I have always loved the arts. I started in photography when I was 14 as a way to get out of taking ballet class. My mother owned a ballet school and at a early age, I knew that dance was not for me but photography was my true passion.

Besides Birmingham, where has been your favorite location to shoot?

I am headed to St Bart's tomorrow to shoot a wedding. I am pretty sure it will be my new favorite location.

What is your favorite part of the wedding to photograph?

My favorite image to take is the “first dance”.
To me, the first dance is amazing because it kicks off the celebration. As the beginning of the reception, it symbolizes the future to me. In this moment, the bride and groom can get lost in a kiss with the whole world watching and not even know it. The crowd watches the couple's wedded bliss - it is a moment to be enjoyed by all.

What is the best advice you were given about owning a business?

Always do what you say you will do.

What do you like to do on your days off?

I like to spend time at the farm with my four legged friends, dogs and horses.
