Blue Bend Photography announces joint venture with The Obsidian Collective to meet growing Wedding Photography and Video demand in Asheville Wedding Market

Strategic Relationship with Asheville’s Renowned Wedding Photographers and Videographers to Provide Clients with Unique Product


ASHEVILLE, NC – Blue Bend Photography Inc., a leader in providing wedding photography services in and around Asheville, NC, today announces its intent to join forces with The Obsidian Collective, Asheville’s top wedding video production company, to create a joint venture in order to meet growing demand for wedding photography - videography services across the United States’ wedding market.
By combining the photographic creative talent of Blue Bend Photography with the significant film and editing talents of The Obsidian Collective, the anticipated joint venture would provide customers with a more efficient and customer friendly alternative to hiring two separate companies for the two services. The joint venture would also enable customers to receive a discounted price when booking both services at once in a combined “package.”   
“As a leading provider of film and video services, The Obsidian Collective is the ideal partner to help spearhead our expansion into the hybrid photography-videography market,” said Nick Gillespie, Owner at Blue Bend Photography. “We look forward to working hand-in-hand with The Obsidian Collective to bring the economic and creative benefits of hybrid photo-video products to the Wedding industry.”
“We are now in a unique position to offer clients services that they would normally need, but have to obtain from two separate firms,” said Gillespie. “With the combined packages and marketing efforts, we are now able to provided both services to the client under one price - generally less than the competition is offering - and the client only has to deal with one contract and one invoice.”
