Meet Blendi Reynolds of Sun-Dance Photography in Ventura

Today we’d like to introduce you to Blendi Reynolds.

Blendi, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
In the 80’s in LA, I was on the other side of the camera (modeling for about 10 years), then received a BA in Art / Photography & Communications. Haven’t put down the camera since. Started my business in the 90’s in Ventura.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Always ups & downs – but mostly a great ride  : )

Dealing with personalities & egos of other photographers is always a challenge – I have had between 8 – 20.

Photographers working for me at any given time – throughout the years. Some are good listeners & can handle a critique (those are the ones still with me) Also, when looking for creative photographers, being artistic & technical with the camera doesn’t guarantee that someone is professional.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the sun-dance photography story. Tell us more about the business.
We photograph weddings every weekend : ) We also photograph everything from engagement photos to boudoir photos to newborn & pregnancy photos & lots of family photos. I think the editing is what clients like the most. I take the time to edit / perfect every image. Making sure all the images are amazing.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I contribute success to hard work & great customer service. I don’t take anything in life for granted – no luck involved.

Pricing:

  • Weddings start @ $1500. for a “budget” package – “all inclusive” packages start @ $1900. (includes engagement sessions)
  • $350 – 1 hour photo session – engagement / boudoir / family / maternity / newborn
