Our beloved business, which would change our lives forever, began in 2008. Before we reveal all about our journey, let us backtrack and introduce ourselves. Our names are Vania and Christine; we are mothers, wives and artists in how we view the world, dreamers in everything we do, and best friends through it all. Christine, born and raised in Germany, and Vania in Italy, both coincidentally moved to Huntsville, Alabama around the year 2000 while fate was already beginning to paint a grand future. We met in college, as graphic design majors. In the summer of 2006, we spent a long afternoon sipping coffees, chatting about our countries, art, college, and our futures. That significant afternoon ignited the relationship that has led us to travel the world as business owners. We spent the last few months of our college careers learning, living and breathing photography.
In 2007, while planning our own weddings, we found ourselves falling madly in love with all things wedding. Late that year, we were already taking on weddings. We developed our business model, logo, branding, and design. By 2008, we officially incorporated our business as an LLC. In 7 years, wedding photography has taken us across dozens of states, as well as transported us to exotic destinations from Hawaii to France to China and Italy to name a few.
We are in love with our profession, and there are several factors, which we believe, have led us to where we are in our careers. Our brand is a true reflection of who we are personally. We are passionately involved in our shoots, and seek to blend the threshold between fine art and commercial photography.
Our favorite imagery is one that certainly pleases the client, but also one that could appear in art galleries. Our images are emotive, ethereal, glowing and always romantic. We find joy in wedding photography because we are able to commemorate true love and create movie-like moments. We are compelled to capture the world as only we are able to see it. Above all, we are strong believers that hard work and dedication are bound to make a business soar. We have been fortunate and incredulously thankful through this journey.
In 2012 we founded our sister branch, Bloom Theory: a fashion forward camera accessory brand. This allowed us to divulge into our love for fashion while combining it with photography.
We do not take our fortunate lives for granted, and are so blessed in countless ways. It is fundamental to us and for our business, to continue striving and working hard to continue turning our dreams into reality.
