We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...


  • Everyone Loves A Good Bow Tie

We absolutely love seeing people launch businesses and pursuing something that they love! We met Craig YEARS ago and he always had a bow tie on. I thought it was just his style but it turns out, they are one of his passions! Craig is multi-talented! Music, teaching, photography and now he’s showing off his ability to run a small business! Craig creates custom bow ties and after my week in Charleston, I’m reminded of just how much I love a good bow tie! They are EVERYWHERE down there! Such southern charm!! So we’re giving one away!!

Being Katelyn Alsop

  • A Break from the Norm

I’m in Charleston. If you follow me on Instagram you may know that. :) It’s not a conference…. it’s not business trip…. it’s not a networking event… it’s vacation. No speaking, no responsibilities and no leadership position. It’s awesome!! A few months ago, Michael and I were heading out for a non-work related trip and my good friend Julie told me “Have fun just being KATELYN ALSOP!”. That was just a simple comment but it made such an impact. This week is a “Katelyn Alsop” week.

Sharing your WIFI Password with Guests

  • A Home Made for Hosting

We didn’t come up with this brilliant idea! We’ve seen it in magazine and several of our friends have incorporated this into their guest rooms in some way or another! It’s such a little but yet very appreciated way to welcome friends and family that are visiting you! There is nothing worse than saying goodnight and heading up to your room and then trying EVERY combination of keywords and numbers that you think may possibly crack the wifi code! You don’t want to bug your hosts with something so petty but yet you were really hoping to get some stuff done before bed!
