About Us and How We Started

You’ve got a challenge. Find a GREAT Wedding Professional that UNDERSTANDS you, a professional you can TRUST!

Hi, my name is Deb! My husband Ron and I started WeddingPhotoUSA back in June of 2003. When we got married way, way, way back in 2000 finding a wedding professional was done the old fashion way. We went to bridal shows, we looked at the “preferred providers” list that the wedding venues gave us, and we even looked in (I’m afraid to admit it) The Yellow Pages, as if anyone even knows what that is anymore.

If you’re like me, you’ll understand why I didn’t like any of those options. At the wedding shows I couldn’t connect with wedding professionals because there’s so much going on, so many brides, and its all too overwhelming. And, the Yellow Pages…who do you call, the one with the biggest ad?! I actually didn’t have enough information about wedding vendors, how they work, and what I should be looking out for. At the time I was planning all this, about 1998, those resources were not easy to come by! In fact, most didn’t even have websites.

In the end, we did find great wedding professionals, but we decided the process was just too complicated, time consuming and stressful so we set off on creating a way to present wedding professionals to brides in a clean, organized and professional manner that you can make sense of, and WeddingPhotoUSA was born!

We were one of the first and still one of the best in providing the quality information to help you understand the entire process of hiring wedding pros (questions, pricing, communication, follow up), learn about what you can do to have a great wedding experience (photo ideas, make-up, looking your best, styles, real wedding examples) and compare professionals easily. And If there is ANYTHING you’d like to see to help you make a perfect wedding vendor match, please contact us for some personal care.
