Try to envision this with me…. You just finished photographing a wedding…. Your feet are throbbing. Your back aches a little. You have to pack the car and drive home and you’re going to need some coffee to stay awake. You get home. Maybe you have kids who missed you or a 9-5 job waiting for you Monday morning. And you have THOUSANDS OF IMAGES TO CULL.
What normally happens? Well, this is what I hear from most photography students who haven’t taken our Consistency Course.
Does it really take a week to cull? No.
Could it be that this poorly planned part of your workflow that is full of procrastination is actually one of the very reasons you can’t stay on top of your editing and blogging??
Well, let me just say… I get it. I have two kids under 3 and an education side of our business to run and I understand how hard it is to complete your culling post-wedding…..
But I ALWAYS get it done in 24hrs. How do I do it?!
How do I do it?! Well, I have great news! I’m sharing 5 Tips and Tricks for 24hr Culling on Youtube today!!
Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
This beautiful wedding day took place in the rolling hills of West Virginia, just past the Virginia state line. Wild Goose Farm is a venue that I’ve never photographed before and let me tell you, it was a treat! We didn’t even have the sun join us for most of the day and yet we were able to capture beautiful portraits! Between the horses, old fences, stunning estate home, lily pad covered pond, old stone walls, rustic barn, open fields and a historic stone arch, I was in photographer heaven!
This session was just as sweet as it looks. We spent the evening with Megan and Tim in the country outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia. We were tucked away in the rolling hills in between beautiful fields and family farms. It reminded me all over again why I just love Virginia. We really have it all… beaches, mountains, history, and great schools! JMU, while it did play a role in Tim and Megan’s story, isn’t actually where it started!
