Simpson Portraits and Glendora Florist are proud to announce a new kind of business partnership. At first glance, florist and portrait photographer does not seem like a natural pairing, but it really works. What began as a mutual love of haute couture, fashion magazines, and high end products ended up in the creation of our own high fashion ad campaigns that promote both custom photography and custom flower design.
You might think it strange to see two logos in the windows of Glendora Florist. Simpson Portraits is located around the corner, but our brands are so intertwined, we have now combined our businesses to be distinct yet work beautifully together. Located in the center of Glendora Village, both businesses cater to clients who want a high level of service and superior products. “As business owners, rather than trying to do everything on our own, working together has pushed us to expand our creativity and inspired us to work harder and smarter,” says Stephanie Simpson, owner of Simpson Portraits.
“I have such a deep respect for what Dalel Snider has created at Los Angeles Floral Couture. She has fantastic taste and her vision for her business is inspiring,” says Simpson. “And I am blown away by Stephanie’s talent and style and how she photographs her clients. We work brilliantly together and she has helped me bring my business to the next level,” says Dalel Snider, owner of Los Angeles Couture.
Last year, Glendora Florist created a new brand, Los Angeles Floral Couture, specializing in custom floral artistry. “I’ve always had a love of fashion and flowers and this is my chance to bring haute couture to floral design,” says owner Dalel Snider. Her Beverly Hills floral design firm is a concierge flower service bringing convenience and custom design straight to our clients. “Since everything is custom designed, having photographs of our unique creations has been a wonderful way for us to showcase our work to brides,” says Snider.
Simpson Portraits, meanwhile, has grown into the premiere portrait photography studio in the San Gabriel Valley. Photographer Stephanie Simpson brings her years of cinematography and movie making to still photography, custom designing each session for clients. “It is my passion to make women look and feel beautiful, and fine art portraits are a wonderful and lasting expression of those feelings,” says Stephanie Simpson.
A great example of their partnership is a full editorial shoot they recently did together for Ceremony Magazine, coming out in January, 2016. They are also joining forces with advertising campaigns in magazines such as Ceremony and The Avenue. “Blending our brands in advertising allows us to get more value for our investment, and makes our print ads look valuable and our services desirable,” says Snider.
Together, we are also pleased to announce the appointment of our official model and brand ambassador, Ashley Elaine, who brings sophistication, edginess, and haute couture to floral designs and custom portraiture. “Ashley Elaine is the face of Los Angeles Floral Couture and our partnership with Simpson Portraits. We are so pleased to have her adorning our window displays and advertisements,” says Dalel Snider.
New window displays at our Glendora, California location and a new signature ad will be revealed on the first of every month. We invite you to experience the luxury of custom designed photography and flower artistry.
