BeauMonde Behind The Scenes
Allow me to reintroduce ourselves…
Greetings, salutations… hello! I’m sure you have seen us here and there around the internet, but always wondered “Who the eff is BeauMonde Originals?”. Well, you’re in luck! Let me properly reintroduce ourselves to you all. Ahem… We are BeauMonde Originals! An award-winning team of content creators based out of Philadelphia.
We seek unorthodox and unique ways to tell stories. Whether it is your business, event, wedding, or even your brand and website. We are a space where individuality and creativity are highlighted and beautifully packaged for the world to see.
Before I continue with my awesome introduction and breakdown of what BeauMonde Originals is and what we are about, I should introduce myself as well. It is a pleasure to meet you all! My name is Andriana Wilson (she/her). Not only am I a Photographer, but I am the newest member of the BeauMonde Team as their Marketing Specialist!
I am thrilled to be offering my insights on social media management, marketing and branding to you all. Like you, I have been following BeauMonde Originals for years, wanting to be a part of the action. My goal is to bring you in it with me as we go BeauMonde Behind The Scenes!
So who the eff is BeauMonde Originals anyway?
Authentic Diversity, Inclusion and Equity
Ok, so what does BeauMonde mean you ask? It means beautiful world in French. We are what we say we are… a beautiful world. Here at BeauMonde Originals, we love working with those who not only understand our world, but those who want to create a more beautiful version of it. Our core values are Authentic Diversity, Inclusion and Equity.
We have a strong moral compass that guides how we treat everyone that we work with. We are always looking for the best, most creative individuals to work with and do not discriminate. However, we do give priority to hiring BIPOC, LGBTQ and Women.
Wedding, Commercial and Web Design
We are LGBTQ woman owned and operated by Cathie Berrey (she/her), our Creative Director, Lead Photographer and Editor.
