HOW WE CAN DEFEAT SEX TRAFFICKING THROUGH RADICAL LOVE

Last year, a group of Atlanta based wedding vendors called Love Gives Way, gathered to put on a styled shoot in an effort to increase awareness and use their services to fight against sex trafficking. Working to connect couples with wedding vendors who donate portions of their proceeds to organizations that help fight sex trafficking around the world, supporting causes such as Beloved, Wellspring Living, She is Safe, Out of Darkness, and Serenity’s Steps. All of these organizations are in Atlanta and work against sex trafficking either through reaching victims, rescuing women, or offering restorative services.

Atlanta is one of the largest hubs in the world for sex trafficking. Most children in the U.S. are between the ages of 12 to 14 when they are trafficked. The average lifespan of someone trafficked is 3-7 years due to abuse, attacks, sexually transmitted diseases, malnutrition and suicide.

It is estimated that the wedding industry in the U.S. alone is a 40 billion dollar industry. The total market value of human trafficking is estimated to be over 32 billion dollars. That’s why Love Gives Way decided to start using weddings to raise awareness and funds to fuel these organizations that fight the sex trafficking industry.

It’s a radical way for couples to give back on their wedding day and for vendors to add meaning to their business.

5 REASONS TO BOOK AN OFFBEAT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Five reasons to book an offbeat photographer (3)

All Photography by Jules Photography

Hello Guys!! We are super excited to be welcoming back Atlanta based, alternative wedding photographer, Jules Photography to Bespoke Bride, as she shares her favourite reasons for being an offbeat photographer. As you guys know we love it when our couples switch things up especially when they are a perfect representation of the couple and their wedding day so who better to capture those special memories? Over to you Jules…

1. Be Yourself!

My number one goal is to make sure your personality shines through in your images. I, of course, will do some traditional poses, but 90% of your day will be FUN, stress-free and full of laughter. I am naturally outgoing so having fun and creating images you will love forever is the recipe to success for me. THAT is what makes me happy.

2. Get Creative.

At some weddings the creative juices are stifled by strict  timelines and just the overall pressure of the day. While that is always going to be a factor to some extent, working with an alternative wedding photographer is going to bring out your absolute best laughter and smiles through creativity. Between random excursions to the most unique spot at your venue to the fun little jokes and poses we’ll come up with together, there’s no doubt you’ll get images like no other couple.

3. Stand Out!

Your photos will stand out all over the internet. Whether it’s your bright colored hair or the unique destination you’ve chosen your photos won’t look like any other wedding. Not only is that part of the challenge that is wedding photography, but for me that’s the definition of FUN. New places and new faces.
