We just wrapped up our FOURTH workshop in our new house!! I can’t believe it! 57 Photographers from different countries and different states have spent two days in our living room during 2017, and have become a part of our family. We prayed for this space to be used in this way and all we have ever wanted is for our workshop attendees to feel at home. From home cooked meals to snuggling under blankets with Bokeh Boy, we want these photographers to feel welcomed, loved and completely comfortable. Maybe it was the gorgeous styled shoot or the perfect weather or the fun group of photographers, but this one was one of my favorites!
As I scrolled through these images from behind the scenes, I felt overwhelmingly grateful for this year. I still can’t believe that we have the opportunity to do workshops like this… in a home like this. It makes me remember the night that I stayed up until 3am brainstorming how I could make my workshops different from everyone else and more “us”. I came to the conclusion that we needed to move and get a house that could hold 16 photographers in one room and you should have seen the look on Michael’s face when I told him. Basically, my 3am idea led to selling our house and we’ve never looked back!
Years later, we absolutely love this aspect of our business. I’m thankful for new friendships and the gift of being able to help 12 women move closer towards their business goals!!!! Enjoy these behind the scenes pictures of our final 2017 workshop!!!!!
Gotta give that girl some snuggles before I hand her off to her grandma’s for the whole day! That’s the only sad part of workshops… missing Evy!! My sister makes the most amazing home-cooked meals for our attendees!!!
How AMAZING is this SHOOT!!! I told Kat that I wanted it to be different with fall tones and a romantic feel and oh man did she deliver just that!!! I can’t thank these vendors enough! :

32 Years. Over three decades. Can you image the impact? My dad accepted the call to our tiny little part of Virginia when I was just 18mos old.
Off season is here!! For wedding photographers, this is hopefully a time to rest and rejuvenate before busy season kicks back in. This is also a great time to focus on some back-end business tasks you might have had on your plate for a while now.
2021 was a year to remember! I decided to close out YouTube for the year, by reflecting back on life lessons 2021 taught me – what worked, what didn’t and what I hope to remember as I move into 2022.
You guys know talking about the tech side of a photography business is not my expertise… but thankfully it IS Tyler’s!!! I asked him to take over this YouTube video because I want to help you figure out which Mac is going to be the best one for you (even though I shouldn’t be the one to help you with that!!)!
It’s been years since I’ve done a round-up of some of my favorite images from the year! I struggle to narrow these down and so I decided to showcase some of the images with the best candid emotions!
Welcome back to another Behind the Image! In this series I take you behind the scenes of a real wedding day and then analyze one image! Today we’re analyzing an image from a wedding we shot back in May that should NOT have worked…but it did!!
