our 5 true north tenants
The idea of a “true north” is central to Safeena Noah. This company isn’t just about me and my (*sparkling*) personality, but it’s about central values. Values that run deep within myself as a human, photographer, business owner, and values that I hope run deep with you.
Because when I create, I’m not creating for you, I’m creating with you.
So it’s important we’re on the same team, yeah?
these are the things that guide what we do and how we create:
The following local, national, and international organizations have been selected for their mission and impact to receive a portion of profits. $500 from any full-day (8+ hour) wedding or elopement booking will be donated on a rotating basis. 25% of all print purchase proceeds will be donated to Preemptive Love Coalition. I (Safeena) have vetted them all personally (I had to use that Non-Profit degree for something, right?) and believe in these organizations, and I hope you do too. Hover over any name to learn more.
