We’ve got something exciting to tell you about. Here goes…
We were approached by Julie and Stephan of Oggi Photography toward the latter half of last year. They let us know they were looking to retire the wedding part of their business and wondering if we’d be interested in taking over for them. After realizing how awesome of human beings they were we decided to go for it. We’re honored that they would even consider us to carry on the torch. Here’s the four of us smiling a lot:
This has been in the works for awhile now but we waited before announcing and making it public. Julie and Stephan have been a pillar in the RI wedding photography scene for decades. They revolutionized wedding photography in the area, helping with the transition from ultra-traditional to the journalistic and candid approach that has become the standard of today. They have been the go-to studio for discerning and sophisticated brides for years. When they started doing weddings they were shooting on medium format film cameras and have successfully kept up with the technological changes throughout their tenure and were able to not only stay competitive but remain as a highly sought after studio while others fell behind because they weren’t able to adapt.
They are and have been set up in Bristol, RI and will remain in that building while Julie continues to service commercial clients and small events and Stephan pursues his fine art and continues to teach. They are infinitely interesting people with hearts of gold and leave us very large footsteps to fill. We plan to do what we do better and better every day in order to not only maintain the standards of the Oggi name but advance it and push it forward. Good things to come. They might even teach me how to develop film!
We greatly admire and respect what Stephan and Julie have done over the years artistically, business-wise, and personally. We’re excited about this new step along the crazy adventure we call Blueflash. To celebrate we decided to jump in the Bluecube together. It only seemed appropriate.
