What Did You REALLY Make?

  • Ask Anything

It’s the end of the year and the beginning of a new one which means several things. 1. We all have new goals, 2. We’re using this off season time to get our big projects done and 3. We should have a clear picture of what we made last year. As a creative, I HATE looking at the numbers. As a business owner, I know it’s something I have to understand. There aren’t a lot of creatives who love the business side of things and I can totally understand that. However, it worries me that a lot of small business owners don’t REALLY know how much money they are making.

Real Life : New Years Eve Wedding Photographer

  • Missing the Kiss!

This past Thursday was New Years Eve and we did something a little different this year! Our dear friends Calvin and Brittany got married in Richmond and while we normally don’t take on New Years Eve weddings, we do make exceptions for close friend’s weddings!! Not only did we get to spend New Years Eve with some of our best friends, I photographed the wedding WITH my bestie Jilly!!!!! Jill started shooting with me before Michael joined me and we loved it. That’s really when we got super close to Bud and Jill!


  • Here's to an Amazing 2016!

I’m not going to lie…. we were up super late… I didn’t pre-plan a blog post…. we shot a wedding last night…. And so sharing something today wasn’t high on my priority list… until I SAW THIS IMAGE!!!!! Oh you guys, yesterday was a dream! Why? Because I was a second shooter!! I shot a friend’s wedding WITH one of my BEST friends and it was so much fun!!! Not only did we shoot the most gorgeous New Year’s wedding, we also photographed as Richmond’s NEWEST wedding venue, The Quirk Hotel!!!
