When the three of us AbFab girls met Tiffany Vaughan, it was love at first site. We had approached her about doing a bridal inspiration shoot in order to help us build our ever-growing portfolio and she dove head first into the unknown. After all, at the time we put our feelers out seeking photographers to assist in photographing our work, the AbFab website wasn't even in existance, we had no business phone number and we were all using our personal e-mails to network. Officially, unofficial, we were desperate to make the business blossom.
We've known since AbFab was just a twinkle in our eyes that we wanted to focus heavily on superior vendor referrals. Emphasis on 'superior'~if we were going to hold ourselves to high standards, we knew we would have to do the same with the partners that we wanted to work with! Tiffany Vaughan saw our vision and had the initial faith in us that was just the beginning of her never-ending support for the AbFab Team. What better way to get to know Tiffany's style, spunk, personality and flair than through a bridal inspiration shoot. When we stepped out of the car at Ft. Pickens on a chilly December afternoon, we witnessed Tiffany pull a pretty, and oh-so- hot-pink chair out of the back of her truck; (or her husband's truck rather though she doesn't like to claim it!) we knew at that very moment this lady in pink was going to do nothing but impress.
As we winded and weaved through this local historical wonder, everything about her shooting was impecable. Her attention to detail, her ability to pose the girls in a natural, yet very poetic way. Her way of knowing precisely what arch and area to be under at a certain time of the day and as you look through the photoshoot featured on her blog, you see the sunlight poking through in absolute precsion. The entire shoot seemed to be telling the story of who Tiffany is as a photographer~ her insanely awesome selection of location, her desire to strive for perfection, her vivacious personality that makes us sing, and her uncanny way of showing those she's photographing that they are the center of her world at that moment in time. A few months later Tiffany offered to let us have some showtime in front of the camera, so off to one her all time FAVORITE locations we went: Alys Beach. There is only one way to paraphrase this place... 'A designers DREAM!'
The crisp and clean white houses, grey brick pathways, the larger-than-life architecture and lush vegetation provided for a backdrop that only us AbFab girls could have dreamed of. While we all honestly enjoy swooning over brides in front of the camera, Tiffany drew out our personalities making us feel 'bold, sassy and chic'~her signature that she stamps on every photoshoot.
A million thanks to the incredible Tiffany Vaughan for believing in us when few did and riding on this wild rollercoaster ride as our business just begins! We love, love, love you!
