Our Story

Welcome! My name is William Bledsoe. I’m Sweet William Photo & Films’ owner and lead photographer. My love of photography stretches back over 20 years to the Valley High School dark room, but I never dreamed of making it a career until 2005 when I wandered into a job at a high-volume Albuquerque wedding photography studio. It was there that I began to dream of making a lifelong career out of the art I had always loved. Every week, the studio I worked for would receive a delivery of fresh flower arrangements from a florist we worked closely with. After a few nervous conversations with the beautiful flower delivery girl, our bosses were soon playing matchmaker. My wife Ashley and I fell hard for each other. Ten years and two beautiful children later, we’re still falling!

The studio and I parted ways when, in 2007, Ashley and I took a leap of faith and started Sweet William Photography (she’s the sweetest part!). Over the course of the last 10 years, our little photo business has grown in ways we never expected. Coffee shop consultations during our first year in business yielded a whopping 10 weddings. Now we operate a 1200 square foot studio in Nob Hill and are blessed to be working with over 60 couples each year. We couldn’t be more excited about where we are and where our little photo business will take us in the future.

As we continue to grow, we remain motivated and driven by a passion for photography and always put the quality and depth of our work above all other aspects of our business.

If you would like to stop by our studio for a cup of coffee and a conversation, simply contact us and we’ll make it happen!
