I wish I had more time to do anniversary photos. I love these sessions because they are a celebration of the journey that has been completed and the journey that is yet to come! Sabrina contacted me months and months ago about doing portraits at the Connect Retreat. Now, I’ve known these two for a long time. Sabrina came to my workshop WAY back in the day with so many others who are now dear friends of ours!

That specific workshop was full of people who have never left our life!! We have seen these two throughout the years at the Connect Retreat and other industry events. They have such sweet and genuine personalities that bring so much peace to anyone they are around. I love that about them! Not only are they sweet…. they also have an adorable daughter!!! I’ve never met their little bundle of joy but it has been so much fun to watch their family grow and change.

So, at the very beginning of their session, we went down a pretty steep hill to start shooting. I promised them the hike and tall grass and threat of ticks was going to be so worth it and I was right!! I loved photographing these two in a new part of campus to change things up a bit!!! Thank you Ben and Sabrina for trusting me with your anniversary images! We love you both dearly!! AND, if you didn’t already know that you were models, you are. :)

Student Spotlight April 2021

It still feels surreal to tell people about what we do for a living. We photograph weddings and we teach other people how to photograph weddings. It’s quite literally a dream job for a creative like myself who loves people! Every month when we do these Student Spotlights, I’m reminded all over again how much of a privilege it is to be a part of these photographer’s lives and play a small role in their stories.

This is Rhett’s third month blog post and I’m actually impressed that it’s only 9 days late!! I’m sure I’ll fall behind this year but as of right now, I’m doing ok and I’m actually thankful for the monthly-post commitment to keep me on top of editing our family pics each month!! While people say “the days are long but the years are short”…. I would say EVERYTHING feels short right now!

Simple Off-Camera Flash Setup One OCF Setup for Wedding Photography

If you’re a photographer that despises Off-Camera-Flash (OCF), this blog post is for you! Ugh. I feel you. I used to hate it too… and it honestly still isn’t my favorite but it’s necessary in order to rise in your professionalism on wedding days after dark!! Off camera flash seems intimidating when you’re trying it for the first time.

This is such a fun post for me to share because it’s what I consider my “hobby”! Sure, it’s still photo-related so maybe it’s not a true hobby for me since my career is consumed in the photography world… but it is most definitely what I love to do for fun!

This is the biggest complaint we’re hearing about the R6!! Photographers who are moving from the CANON MARK III camera body and switching to the new Canon R6 camera body are lost when it comes to perfecting their edits to the style they are used to.
