Vendor Spotlight

Vendor Spotlight: Southwest Creative Co.

We are thrilled to share with you some of our favorite vendors composed of wedding photographers, venues, hair and makeup, videographers and many more!

This month we are featuring one of favorites in wedding photography: Southwest Creative Company. Bianca Padilla and Anthony Quiterio make up this perfect little duo behind the lense. They have been telling stories with their beautiful natural light photography {officially} for 2 years now, but have been capturing special moments for over 5 years. Sure, they are known for their lovely couple photography but their services go beyond that. Some of the other services they offer include: Photography, Videography, Graphic Design, Web Design & Social Media Management.

We decided to ask Bianca and Anthony a few questions to get a deeper insight on how these adventurous storytellers have become successful in doing what they love and having others love what they do.

  • What got you started in the industry?  Our love for capturing love! We love shooting family sessions and commercial work but there is something super special about photographing love.
  • What do you guys do on your free time when you are not working on your business? Traveling is our biggest hobby! Whenever we have a free weekend we rarely stay in town.
  • What is the most rewarding part of what you do? Being able to supply our couples with memories them & their family will have forever!
  • Can you recall a time when you had a chaotic event? If so, how did you get through it? Most wedding days are sprinkled with chaos, but for us we just try to concentrate on what needs to be done and work though it instead of getting caught up in the stress of the moment.
  • To what do you attribute your success? A positive mindset and surrounding yourself with people who support you & your business!
  • What sets you apart from others in your area of business? We are HUGE on candid and do very little posing with our couples. Most of our couples aren’t models and we don’t want you to pretend to be. We want your reactions, laughs and smiles all to be real and genuine. We want the, to be authentic to who you are and your love together. We love having fun with our couples and “games” we play during our sessions to take your mind off getting your photo taken and make you laugh and smile without feeling awkward or like you’re trying to model for us.
  • If someone were wanting to book your business for their special day, how far in advance would they have to do it? We recommend booking us at least a year in advance.
  • Are you flexible with traveling for a wedding? We LOVE traveling for weddings! We will go anywhere & everywhere with our clients. The more adventurous the better!
  • What trends have you seen in weddings lately? Lately we’ve been seeing lots of geometric shapes, cute little plants given away as guest favors, and custom wedding hashtags!
  • Any tips or advice you would give to a bride and groom when in search of a photographer/videographer? Be sure to ask the right questions. Make sure you know how many hours they will be there, how many images to expect, when you’ll receive them, if they include prints, or how long the video will be. Also be sure you dig their style! Every photographer & videographer has their own way of capturing & coloring your day. Be sure your style syncs with theirs!

Below are a few of their favorite shots
