GUESS WHAT… I haven’t edited a full wedding in YEARS. That’s why there are so many other things happening in our business! You can’t GROW if you are AT CAPACITY!! So why am I telling you this?! Because my PRIVATE EDITOR has done something absolutely incredible!! She has created a way to 1. EDUCATE and TRAIN other editors AND 2. She is about to launch a DIRECTORY for these editors to get connected with their photographers!! There is SUCH a need for this in our industry! I wish EVERYONE could have a bulk editing experience like us and now they CAN! EDIT SOURCE is launching soon and you don’t want to miss it! Those who look into this and make this leap are going to experience SO much freedom and growth in their business!!! Here is some more info for you! :

Edit Source is a website designed to connect photographers with private photo editors. It is easy for photographers to get bogged down editing, which limits their family time and leaves little room to grow their businesses. Outsourcing solves the problem of time and outsourcing directly to a private photo editor creates a 1-on-1 relationship that establishes consistency in meeting a photographer’s style. Edit Source helps photographers find a private editor through simple filters and listings that are free to browse and use to connect with their editor. Match your style and start a consistent relationship that gives you time to grow your business like never before at Edit Source!

QUIT EDITING and get your LIFE BACK with Edit-Source!

Education

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 + Jesse A Gillbrook Farms Wedding

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

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!

Tim + Megan | Engaged Countryside Engagement Portraits | Harrisonburg

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!
