Eight Three One is accepting nominations for future recipients of donations. Stephanie’s time serving on missions abroad in the Dominican Republic changed her life and how she sees other countries and cultures, and they want to know what you think, too! “We would love to hear what causes and organizations are close to people’s hearts,” says Stephanie. “This is an ongoing project!”
To further contribute to the Haitian Relief Effort, 831 is offering an additional incentive to book during the month of February. Book an eight-hour or longer engagement with a single photographer for your wedding and get a second shooter at your event FREE (a $700 value!). A second photographer is a great way to capture your special moments from more than one point-of-view — for example the bride walking up the aisle taken from the front of the chapel (the groom’s point-of-view) or the back of the bride’s dress as she makes her way down the aisle. Having a second photographer allows your photographers to capture these moments in true photojournalistic style, even though they may be occurring simultaneously.
In addition to a free second photographer and the good feeling that comes from supporting a worthy cause, all 831 packages come with digital rights release for personal printing, plus the support of a caring staff of enthusiastic and talented professional. “Our team helps us to give our clients the attention they deserve!” In addition to Stephanie, 831 has two other owner-photographers — Shannon Smith (Stephanie’s husband) and Callie Mercury — as well as several associate photographers, a business manager (Stacy — call and ask her all your questions. She’s great!), several cinematographers, a dedicated sales staff, and an album designer who works directly with brides and grooms to ensure that their wedding album is exactly what they want.
Eight Three One’s photographers cover a wide range of photographic styles, including fine art, photojournalistic, and traditional. Like our Disc Jockeys, 831 photographers spend time getting to know you as clients and as people to get a better feel for what will work best for you and your wedding. Each of 831’s three senior photographers has a photojournalistic background, with special talents in three different areas. Stephanie explains: “I am the capturer, the most journalistic of the group… Callie is our creator. She is extremely talented in creating moments that look as though they happened that way. Shan is our innovator. He is always staying on the cutting edge of technology and does amazing things with off camera lighting… I try to match clients up with someone whom I think they will work well with. Then the client and the photographer get to know each other during the engagement session.”
Eight Three One shares Something New DJ’s commitment to our planet, as well. Go green! Online wedding galleries and wedding DVD proofs instead of paper wedding contact sheets, online calendar and contact management, and an online wedding contract process utilizing an electronic signature are just a few of the ways that 831 is reducing their impact on the environment as a green Northeast Ohio wedding provider.
