Vendors We Love / / Sarah Ascanio Photography

Hi, friends! Today I’m sooo freakin excited to share with you our very first vendor spotlight and it’s a GOOD one. As a wedding planner, I get to work with a lot of vendors. At buck & rose, we want you to find vendors that are not only a fit within your desired budget, but we also want you to find vendors that you L-O-V-E, LOVE! Sometimes finding vendors is harder than it seems. Not to mention, there are so many options, which is great but the amount of choices can also be super overwhelming. Browsing through The Knot, WeddingWire, or wherever you’re searching for your vendors can take a lot of time and while planning your wedding is a big project, we also want you to ENJOY being engaged! I wanted to highlight vendors that we love at buck & rose. We’ve worked with them side by side and have nothing but major vendor crushes on.

1. Tell us, how did you get started in photography and what do you love most about your work?

I started shooting weddings as a second shooter for Tony's mom in Washington state and that transitioned into forming my own business when we moved to MN 5 years ago! I love challenging myself in my work and creating something different every time I shoot, no matter how many times we have shot somewhere. 

2. Best advice for a couple looking for their wedding photographer?

Find someone you vibe well with! You spend almost your entire day with your photog and having someone you like around is a game changer in feeling comfortable with having your photo taken.

3. When you aren't behind the camera capturing magic, what do you enjoy doing?

Camping/reading/hiking with my dog & my hubs, Tony!

4. What is your favorite spot in Minneapolis right now?

We're new pup parents and love bringing her anywhere and everywhere. Our favorite thing is going for a walk around Lake Harriet and grabbing a beer at Bread & Pickle afterwards :)

5. What's on your playlist/podcast/audible?

My heavy rotation is always shifting and I legit listen to everything so this is tough. Haha. Super into Still Woozy, Billy Eilish & Ian Noe lately!

6. What will couples love the most about working with you?

I'm a big believer in creating a chill/fun atmosphere for our couples so they feel a little less like they have cameras in their face and more like they're hanging with old pals. We know how to have a dang good time!
