We decided to fly to the desert…. right before the biggest conference of the year. NBD. But hey! “People over pictures” right?! Always.
We are SO excited to spend some time with our sweet friends Jordan, Amy, Anna and Caroline! We’re LOVING the desert weather since at home, there is a pile of SNOW! Again! We’re loving the sunshine and sweet hospitality. Today is “supposed” to be a work day… and we’re working on that (pun intended). Halfway through the morning we realized that Rangefinder’s new digital issue was out!!! AH!
We knew that we were going to have a little feature in this recent issue …. and the awesome thing is Amy and Jordan were featured in the SAME ARTICLE!!! We squealed and quickly flipped through the spreads searching for our page! Annamarie snapped a few pictures of us freaking out!!! We were featured in Rangefinder’s Educators “10 to Watch” article and we’re all thrilled!! What an honor!!! This is such a fun thing to celebrate right before WPPI!!!!! And what makes it even better is that we get to celebrate with FRIENDS in PERSON!!!!!!! VIEW IT HERE!
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!
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.
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
