Parker Priddy Gallery + Studio sale: Awesome. Press release here:

Parker Priddy Gallery + Studio, the collaborative showroom for Parker J Pfister Photography and Ship to Shore Clothier, the custom gown design label from R. Brooke Priddy, will be hosting a special holiday sale event on Saturday, November 29th from noon to 8:00 p.m.

During the one-day sale, all Ship to Shore ready-to-wear will be marked down by 20%. One-of-a-kind wedding gowns, party dresses, and other unique handmade creations will be available. Brand new inventory will be added specifically for this opportunity.

Parker will be offering a rare $250 portrait session fee (regularly $550) if the session is paid in full the day of the sale. Those sessions will be booked with Parker via email anytime within two months after the sale. Prints & products will be available after the session at usual rates. Merging historical techniques and mediums with modern technologies to create cherished heirlooms, Parker’s recent artful portrait work has been drawing attention and praise.

Small Business Saturday was born in 2010 as a reaction to the frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The intention is to encourage people to focus their attention (and their holiday spending) on small, local brick and mortar local businesses rather than large, chain retailers.

The studio is now regularly open to the public for retail hours on Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 8:00 p.m.

PARKER + PRIDDY is a bespoke photography firm born of Parker and Brooke’s epic fashion and photography projects. They offer custom personal and commercial services including full service photography and styling.
