What Editing Programs Do Professional Photographers Use?

Lightroom library

A few days ago I got to go back to my old school (the one I taught at) and hang out with the yearbook teacher. I’ve worked with him on several different projects the past few years, and I was there to show him some editing techniques. These programs can be pretty overwhelming so I […]

Should Photographers Photoshop Images to Make People Look Better?

Groomsmen with superhero shirts

As a wedding photographer, I hear a lot of the same things over and over again, weekend to weekend. One of the most common, goofy things people say is “I don’t know what to do with my hands,” which if you didn’t know, is a line from Talladega Nights with Will Farrell. Another extremely common, […]

Live Photography Education on Facebook

About two months ago, I started creating videos with general information for brides and posting them on my new YouTube account. I got some good stuff on there, but then I got distracted and stopped making them. Well, I’m hoping to get back on top of it, and I’d like to produce a video a […]

Free Shutter Repair for the Nikon D750

One thing that really annoys me is when a company doesn’t stand behind it’s product. I believe that if you’re selling something, you need to protect and help your customers. If something goes wrong, you do your best to fix it and make it right. I’m happy to say that Nikon has done a pretty […]

Two Major Events for Brides

The past three months have been the normal crazy, but awesome wedding season, and now I have August to recover before I hit an even crazier September and October. I will be spending August editing and probably doing some other shoots, but coming up, I have two major events for brides: The Event Nation Bridal […]

I’ve often talked about how important weddings are and how big a responsibility photographing one is. That’s why it makes me so sad to hear stories of people just deciding to be wedding photographers without the proper gear, education or experience. If you go into a wedding unprepared, there’s a good chance you’re going to […]

New Wedding Photography Website

Once again I’ve managed to step away from my blog for a few weeks. Like usual, it happens when I have too much stuff going on. Well, we are in wedding season, but I’ve also been writing for other blogs, working on my high school senior brand, and if you haven’t noticed, launching a new […]

My First Year as a Full Time Photographer

Today’s post is a pretty special one for me. Every Sunday night, I start planning for the next week. I have these monthly calendars all printed out and I’ll sketch out all the things I need to do for that week. Well, tonight I realized something cool…I’ve run out of months. When I decided to […]

Google Suspended My Business Page

I’ve talked several times about how important Google is to my business. I’d say about half of my weddings come from Google, so I’m always messing around with SEO. Well, I randomly remembered to check my ranking today, and something kind of freaked me out. I was no longer showing up on the top 3 […]

How to Become a Traveling Wedding Photographer

Over the past 8 years of shooting weddings, the majority of them have been in Northwest Arkansas and with people that I had some connection. I’ve loved doing this and loved all of my clients, but I’m ready to expand. Before I was pretty limited by when and where I could shoot by my other […]
